Oh hey, Dribbble. Haven’t seen you in a while.
I made an app! With my own two BARE HANDS. It’s called Red Pen: it's a bullshit-free way to share your designs and get annotated feedback from the people you trust.
Design feedback has been this problem that thousands of people have tried to solve. Nothing sticks because their solutions try to shove a specific workflow down your face. You have to jump through all these UI screens just to get to the point of it.
So I made an app with as little obstruction as possible. You give your friends a link to this great design you're working on and they can point at different areas and go "wait, this bit is confusing", "what if you did this", and "this part is perfect".
Because we don't get better in isolation. Designers are a collective mind. We grow when we surround ourselves with good people and learn from each other. Others give us perspective that we can't quite find ourselves. Getting good, fast feedback is important.
Try Red Pen and tell me what you think.
Bonus easter egg: try uploading a massive file.

Really love it dude and have been using it this week with my team! One feature request I have is a place to add a top-level description to file; I'd find it super handy :)
@Matthew Farag nice splash screen ;)
@Jordan Borth I agree. A few people have mentioned it, too.
@James Santilli Shhhhhhh sekrits
Matthew: Maybe allow to add some whitespace above the uploaded image so people can use built-in annotation feature to write that description? Because if I wanted to add a general description, I would just upload a file with 100-200px top padding and used that space.
Wow, it's really awesome! I love when sites keep their promises. It is simple and great. I think I'll be using this a lot ! :)
This is perfect!
@Matthew Farag great job ;)
Hi Matt, I love this. I can see myself using this a lot. Some comments;
- I'd love to be able to create a gallery.
- I'd love to be able to upload multiple images in one go and therefore have them linked. A button would switch to the respective image. I'd use this to show how flyout menus and other functions work.
- I've also love to be able to name the web page title for easier bookmarking plus it acts as a title for whoever I'm sending it to.
- Do my images ever expire?
