What collaborative design tools do you use?

I came across a new app a while ago which was all about collaborative designing, thought it was really good but can't remember the name of it. I'm sure there's plenty more you all use so it would be great to discover some of these tools you're using. Please post recommendations!

    Prototyping and collaboration for design teams

    I've been a huge fan and advocate of using InVision on design and product teams for years now. You can drop in Sketch and Photoshop comps super quickly, and their interactive prototyping tools make it easy to stitch together a bunch of UIs for an experience that can get pretty close to a real product. Also leaving feedback on Boards is great, we collect feedback and it itemizes them into a list of change requests.

    If your designer don't use InVision...(it's bad) If your project manager ask questions about design in Skype or email...

    I've used InVision to create mockups and prototypes. It is super simple to use and its great for team collaboration as well.

    When I want to generate a range of service design artefacts like journey maps, or other canvases, I tend to use real-time board as a home for the digital copies.

    I love Atomic for collaborative prototypIng. It helps me evaluate my design ideas quickly and effectively. I can't say enough great things about their platform. When you get as many wins / quick failures I've had, you'll see why I think this highly of Atomic.

    Mural is also a great 'online whiteboard' option which has a wide number of 'canvases' for journey mapping, empathy mapping, lean canvas development and the likes.

Online proofing system in ProofHub allows managers, clients and decision makers to share feedback in a concise and hassle-free manner with the help of markup tools, and threaded comments on the files that need to be reviewed.
