"Growing and improving experience for easy psd inspect for my team."

What do you like best?

After version 3.0 with the inclusion of Photoshop artboard finally I can inspect easy files with a lot of views for apps and websites.

There's no need to download desktop software because web app works smooth.

Constantly work from the team give us new files support like Adobe XD ideal for apps design.

What do you dislike?

Missing integration with Google Drive or cloud storage service.

Before version 3.0 Photoshop art board wasn't available and inspection experience was kind of frustrating.

Sometimes images inside PSD don´t render correctly and heavy files upload fail constantly (improved since version 3.0).

Would be nice to control independent code display settings for projects, please add this feature!

Recommendations to others considering the product

Nice web app and desktop app, price is not cheap but it's pretty competitive compared to other solutions available.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Put an end to countless time lost at designer and developers unnecessary requests for assets, color codes and measurements.

Help our developers to create final products very close and great fidelity compared to original mockups.

Developers can provide themselves with any required assets without help of a designer.

"Great app for Front-End Developers"

What do you like best?

The best is, that you as a Front-End developer, not always have at your disposal, tools like Photoshop or Illustrator, so you depend on the use of online slow tools, or your eyes to try to construct the styles you need.

Avocode it's our solution for that, it's so focused on Front-End developers, that you only have to select the psd objects and all the styles, that the designer put on them, are all accessible from the lower right of the screen, easy and fast. Also you have tools that help you make measures of the items or objects that makes easy our work.

Great App!.

What do you dislike?

Despiece of the fact that it's a great app, the Windows application sometimes takes to long to load the psd files uploaded, or to upload a new psd. Besides that, it is awesome.

Recommendations to others considering the product

We have several projects that we are working simultaneously so we create one project folder for each of them, then we have several lightweight psd for each of the devices dimensions and pages or designs that we need, that way Avocode loads the pds easily, and is more efficient to work on.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

As I said before Avocode it's our solution for us, Front-End developers,in a way that you only have to select the psd objects and all the styles, that the designer put on them, are all accessible from the lower right of the screen, easy and fast. Also you have tools that help you make measures of the items or objects that makes easy our work.

What Other Design solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"Avocode for checking your design"

What do you like best?

If you are not sure of the service one of the good thing is that you have a 14 days trial without credit card that allows you to begin familiar with the platform and its tools. It also allows you to comment on the files and revisions so you can keep an eye on the various ideas and states, instead have a call or a series of emails. You can use online or offline and it's compatible with Windows and Mac.

What do you dislike?

At the moment we did not faced any issues or problems with the platform.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Avocode at the moment is savign our time and helps our work to be easier than before. As metioned previously the 14 days trial can help you to understand the potential of the platform and its versatile tools.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Since it supports files from Photoshop, Illustrator, Sketch and Dreamweaver, this help our team a lot to share and review our work. As a team we need a costant comparison of the work we are doing for a project. Also as designer we haven't to export all the developer's assets for his work, Avocode do all the work for us.

"Amazing tool to integrate designers and developers"

What do you like best?

Really easy to inspect PSD of Sketch files, not design software knowledge needed. Cool collaboration tools for the team.

What do you dislike?

There is no way to keep in sync the files from your computer or an online service like Google Drive, every time a edition is made, someone has to upload the new file version.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Look for tools to integrate your mockups (you can use PSD, XD or Sketch files), then go for the trial (only 14 days) and start enjoying a new and easy way to check your designs. Developers can get a lot from the app in a couple minutes after start using it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We load our app designs and our developers use Avocode to get all measurements, styles and assets from design files.

"Perfect for PSD analisys for front-end development in Linux"

What do you like best?

Avocode let you FULL review a PSD file (colors in Hex, measures, fonts, text styles, etc...) in linux without need of wine or Photoshop at all. Is even better than Gimp.

Avocode uses Electron as backend but is ok, isn't heavy at all, you can listen music, have your favorite IDE open and everything is fine. No more Virtualbox or Wine running in background.

Additionally Avocode offers client revisions on the PSD. The designer can upload the PSD file, the final client can make a review, put commentaries, etc. in real-time while your are online at the same time picking up the code.

What do you dislike?

The short trial, but is ok, is an awesome software that deserves the price. Is a great piece of software.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are using linux or a low RAM device, Avocode can handle that PSD file for you.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Developing Front-End web based on PSD designs in Linux.

Adobe Photoshop have not native support in Linux. Linux is my main development system, I really like it. When I discovered Avocode was awesome. Avocode offers a lot of features in PSD handling with a low system resources consumption, no more Wine, no more buggie photoshop.

Avocode is the better solution right now according to my requirements.

"Great product; helps UX and Dev communicate effectively"

What do you like best?

I love the simplicity for the UI team to be able to drop in files and have them immediately be able to be consumable by the dev team. It saves so much time on development and the UX team-- the developers get their questions answered quickly and the UI team has to do significantly less manual labor. Highly recommend!

What do you dislike?

Uploads and loading can be slow, but really there's not much to complain about. Works great!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Significantly improve quality of UI and reduces time spent on both the designers and developers. Just helps streamline workflows all around!

"A helpful tool for designer handoff"

What do you like best?

Avocode helps bridge the gap between the designer and the front-end developer. The biggest plus is the CSS generation and the cloud based design file organization .

What do you dislike?

We were early adopters of Avocode. AT the time we were primarily using sketch and avocode worked really well for the team. However, with significant sketch updates, Avocode started having bugs . We had to find various work arounds and tertiary plugins to help Avocode.

Recommendations to others considering the product

The newer versions are far more stable and does not seem to need any work-arounds.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We needed to shorten the gap between designer and developer.

"Nice way for UX to get info to Developers"

What do you like best?

Easy to navigate, especially when UX knows how to set up the pages correctly. A developer can be working on a page, look at the avacode for it and pull much of the CSS directly from it.

What do you dislike?

Could be more CSS based, some of it requires a bit of translating.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It's pretty easy to navigate and it makes it fairly easy to translate from the UX design to a webpage.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

At least from the standpoint of a UI developer, the benefit has been quickly converting the UX design into a real page.

"Useful for Providing Deliverables to Devs"

What do you like best?

I like how compatible the program is with Adobe XD, a wireframing program that is not as complete as the more industry standard ones.

What do you dislike?

I dislike how it is not possible to acquire HTML/PHP code from the wireframes.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Consider other softwares if you're using programs like Sketch or Photoshop for wireframes, something like Invision will yield better results.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are easily providing deliverables to developers, much more simply and cheaply than other programs.

"Great for PSD conversions"

What do you like best?

I actually enjoy this more than the Adobe PSD converters.

What do you dislike?

The cost. Even if you have just Photoshop, with the monthly cost, you may as well sign up for a complete Cloud subscription.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

None applicable
