For the longest time now, Evernote has been the go-to service if you want to conduct any research on the web. And why not, with the plethora of options that it offers. But personally, I’ve found that it lacks the simplicity to let me use the app to collaborate with others. Evernote is great for power users and I swear by it, but every time I’ve worked in a project group with others who aren’t that tech-savvy, it’s a stumbling block and we end up switching back to a long Gmail thread that’s messy and hard to keep a track of.
That was the main reason Annotary piqued my interest when I came across it. The simplicity it offers is unparalleled in other apps, be it Evernote, Scrible or anything else. And when I actually did work on an assignment with a tech-challenged friend using Annotary, he didn’t find it the least bit intimidating and is now using it as his default bookmarking service for all, irrespective of research projects.
In this Quick Look, we’re highlighting Wishbox. The developer describes Wishbox as a new kind of feedback tool for web sites. Your web site visitors can click on a “Feedback” button on the side of the page, and that pops up a screenshot of your web site with a drawing tool. Your visitors can draw arrows, add text and do many other fun things on the screenshot, then send it back to you.
It takes a few minutes to install Wishbox into your site. No signup required.
