In this Quick Look, we’re highlighting WebEngage. The developer describes WebEngage as an in-site feedback and targeted survey tool for websites. It lets you create targeted polls for your site’s visitors and engage your audience directly. You can easily set up and integrate it with your site, and then use its power to improve your lead generation and customer support right on your site.

No matter what you’re designing, you won’t get it right the first time. Odds are, you won’t get it right the 20th time either. Design is an iterative process. You’ll have to come up with your basic idea, then you’ll have to pick the best way to approach it. Then, you may have several different design ideas for each approach to the app, site, newsletter, or whatever else you’re designing. And then you’ll have different ideas from each of those ideas once you start integrating feedback.

Starting to feel like you need something to pull it all together? That’s where Zurb’s newest app, Influence, comes in.

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.

There’s a never-ending debate over whether tablets can be productive devices, perhaps even substitutes for full computers, or if they’re simply to be relegated to the status of a nice tech toy. Despite the many brilliant productive tools that have been designed for the iPad, one of the best examples of areas that tablets break productivity is web apps. While some web apps work great on the iPad, many are much more difficult to use.

Gmail Mobile presents a nice change to this trend, with a beautiful iPad-style web app. LucidChart is another example of an app that includes extra features designed just for the iPad. Today, we’re featuring another great app that’s been designed just for tablet browsers: Axe. This new free app from ZURB joins the ranks of their other great apps as an easy way to quickly markup a website with your feedback. It’s easier than ever on a touchscreen, so let’s take a look at how this app might make your iPad a bit more productive.

Sharing feedback is one of the most important aspects of teamwork. It’s what gets (and keeps) everyone on the same page and helps to ensure everyone is working together properly towards a common goal. This is easily achieved in face-to-face meetings… But it’s 2011, so how does one get comprehensive, coherent and usable feedback via the web?

The team behind ConceptBoard seems to have an answer: their web app provides a space to display and discuss files and ideas and get everyone’s points of view into focus. Is this the meeting-killer miracle you’ve been waiting for?

We’re surrounded by beautifully designed sites and apps nowadays. Every new app, it seems, has an increasingly intricately designed icon, and bad designs almost feel startling. Unfortunately, when most of us set down to design a new icon or lay out a clean interface on our sites, we feel like we come up short. Whether you’re an advanced designer or haven’t ever opened Photoshop, sometimes we all need to learn from others and get feedback on our work.

Design is an iterative process. It takes inspiration, perhaps from others’ work, and it takes feedback from others on what you’re doing right and where you’re missing it. After all, don’t forget Picasso’s famous quote that’s been popularized by Steve Jobs: “Good artists copy. Great artists steal.” After the break, we’ve put together a list of a dozen of our favorite sites that can get you inspired to create and help you get feedback on the things you’ve created.

In this Quick Look, we’re highlighting UserMood. The developer describes UserMood as an easy way to make one click website surveys to learn what your users really need. Get a steady stream of useful insights from your customers or site visitors right from your existing web pages. Learn if your customers would recommend you to others, if they understand your pricing, how they feel about your service, or anything else you’d like to know with no coding needed, just a quick copy and paste.

It’s a reality that those who are web designers need to work together with a client in order to generate a successful design. We have to discuss with a client what they’d like changed, and then change it (although, we should always write it into our contract to avoid any frustration when you get a client from hell).

CAGE is an awesome collaboration tool that allows you to manage projects and share images (whether they be a screenshot of a web page, or just an image of something else) of your work (i’ll be looking mainly at using this tool for web design today, but the tools are available for whatever type of image you upload). Your team and/or your clients can login too and add comments to highlighted areas, furthering the collaboration abilities of your design team.

I’m a web developer who’s not much for prototyping, at least not using some online tool. I’ve changed up my process a lot, but the only thing that’s still frustrating is the sketches phase. Sometimes I’ll dive right into code and start mocking up using just HTML and CSS. Other times I boot up Photoshop and create a series of mock-ups from nice, organized layers. If I need feedback, I’ll upload the screenshots into a project manager and ask people to comment.

This admittedly is not a very good way to do it. Then I heard about inVision, a fantastic prototyping tool that allows you to create user experiences and get feedback. We’ve recently seen a Quick Look post about it, and several lucky readers got free subscriptions to it in our recent giveaway. For everyone else, keep reading to learn more about InVision.

Whether you’re writing a simple app to try out a new language or coding the next Facebook, sometimes you’re going to want to share a bit of your code. Maybe you’ll want to show your coworker what a certain function does, or make a suggestion about SEO to your copywriter. Or perhaps you’re stuck on a problem, and need to point out exactly what’s wrong and where you’re stuck.

Full code review tools are an overkill for this, while sharing the code on its own can make it difficult to add your commentary to it. That’s where Chop comes in. Keep reading to see how Chop can help you share info about code and collaborate with less friction.
