What is the best app to collect design inspiration: images, animations, videos and (maybe) articles?
- Board will help you manage your collections. Also Pinterest's recommendation will help you discover similar things you might like.
- Used to use this quite a bit but it can support all different types of media. If you just want to build moodboards, InDesign or Photoshop are also good.
- I used to be the biggest fan of Evernote, but recently turned to OneNote to capture exactly what you are looking for. It isn't perfect and not as full featured as Evernote (premium paid edition) but it is simple, organized, and works across multiple platforms (not just Windows). Plus it's private which I prefer for capturing product and design ideas and notes.
- A popular picture management software in Taiwan and China. You can save all of your pictures, animations and GIFs at Eagle. Meanwhile you can also categorize these inspirations by tagging. It also has Chrome extension for you to save the whole web page and any picture element in no time. Highly recommended.
