Creating awesome apps takes effort, frustration, and repetitive code review. Tools like Github offer a quick way to connect with fellow developers. Feedback will improve your code without a doubt. But sometimes, you need more context to understand your issues. Provide screenshots, annotate images, and strike a dialogue in the comment section. Make sure you don’t repeat the same mistakes twice.
You can make screenshots look great in just 2 clicks and you can add helpful annotations too. Useful for giving design feedback or guiding your users. A great tool to keep aside & use regularly
Image annotation apps give you tools for annotating images. Good Annotations gives you a workflow for capturing, annotating, and sharing screenshots or other images.
Use Good Annotations to see your code in a new light. Being that you already use GitHub or a similar text-only tool to connect with fellow reviewers, you can snap screenshots and request feedback on your code’s functionality. Good Annotations help you easily share your code, add feedback, discuss critical issues, and convert your code representation to professional PDF documents.
Code is only one part of the picture. Help your engineering team run effective code review sessions with annotated screenshots. Showcase your code in a way that is not possible with a wall of text. Create a visual context and build a narrative around your ideas. Breathe your code to life and show your team both ends. Fixing bugs and tieing up loose ends is easier when you see the big picture.
Review your code freshly and vividly with Good Annotations. Download the Chrome extension to capture how your code interacts with other elements in the web browser. Annotate critical points. Share your findings with a link. And create a discussion on the topic of making your code useful for final users. [Code is a language that is best related in photos.]
The person reviewing your code is not having it easy. Reviewers sometimes have to find the tail and the head of your project and grasp your grand designs. Help them help you. Provide a visual representation of how you build features, the purpose they serve, and the end goal you’re striving to achieve. One image is worth a thousand lines of code.
The code fix is often simple, but the underlying story is not. The habit of writing lazy code is easy to pick up and hard to dismantle. Receiving feedback and visual review of your code will help you code better in the future. You can now understand the full context of a code fix. Please, feel free to go one step further and share your findings with others on social media and your website. Your not only building your app, but you’re also creating collective knowledge that can help the upcoming programmers and coders struggling with the same problems.
Create comment threads and code discussions
Dissect complex coding structures with a dialogue. Document instances that need more context and engage fellow coders. Learn, create, and bridge the gap between your code and your app. Flag features and helps explain why they’re fagged. Tell a story of how to make things better, faster, and smoother for the end-user.
Review code with less friction. Create maps for every major step in the process and always have instant access to your coding screenshots and developers’ discussions. Keep your files online and use them at will, from anywhere and from any device. Your account will help provide smooth code files for any type of review.
Code is complicated. Sometimes you have to build a complex back end to offer a simple service in front of the house. Restaurants, startups, and most other businesses have a similar division of work. You might enjoy your meal at the restaurant without caring much about what’s going on behind the scene, yet guests enjoy open-plan restaurants and open kitchens and can’t wait to see how their dish is made. Showcase your biggest coding challenges and success stories with annotated images. One day you can quote something along the lines of: “Look, these 3 lines are where it all started.”
If you have a photo, image or screenshot sitting on your computer you can upload it to Good Annotations through our editor. Its super easy and takes seconds to do.
Once you have uploaded your image you can use any of our online tools to edit or add elements to the image.
We've worked hard to make our tools & features all online and based within your browser. This means you do not need to install any applications on your laptop or computer.
We thought you might like this as it means we didnt build yet another app you have to install, you can just come back to us when you need us.
We did build a Chrome extension that you can install if you like. It lets you take screenshots in one click.
Good Annotations is currently a completely free and online tool. We dont ask for your credit card details or your email address to use our tool!
This may change in the future but don't worry as there will always be a free version of Good Annotations, payments will only be required if you are seeking to use a premium feature we haven't built yet (for example a team account).
If you have any features you think are missing in Good Annotations, feel free to reach out!
