About Ruttl

Ruttl is a collaborative online tool for reviewing developed websites. It is intended for teams of designers and developers to gather visual feedback and make live changes to web projects. The software works by embedding one or more target web pages for design review. These pages can then be browsed as usual in preview mode. Team members can be added from within design, development units, and outside parties. Users can tag elements of reviewed web pages and add comments, suggestions, or questions in comment mode. Tasks can be assigned to individual team members and issues marked as resolved when appropriate. Ruttl also offers a responsive view feature for reviewing mobile versions of the site. The platform provides an inspect mode that allows users to make design cha...

Best App for Getting Feedback on Live Websites

I love the clean and modern design, which is a joy to use and boosts my image with my clients. I like that my clients have been able to use it with almost no instruction... but there has been some confusion from my clients on how to do a few things, for example, to find and work off the latest revision. Also, there was a time where I didn't get any notifications that my client made comments... but I believe that was rectified.

PROS

Has all the features needed to collaborate with clients on web design, including point and click to add comments on live website elements. Clients can collaborate as guests, but get more features if they login. As an agency, it can be white-labeled with a custom domain. As actual website revisions are made, ruttl can add revisions so that clients are commenting on the latest revision, not an outdated website.

CONS

It's new, so some of the features are still getting worked out. But ruttl has been fast to acknowledge and usually fix any issues. I believe it's getting mature.

Reason for choosing Ruttl

Way cheaper, better looks, more targeted at exactly what I need, which is website design review & collaboration.

Reasons for switching to Ruttl

Markup.io is still developing, slowly. ruttl has the live edit feature and a few more features than markup.io. And it feels like ruttl is developing quickly and has an active, fast-moving, serious team behind it.

Very Promissing But Not Great As of Now

I started to try it after I bought it 2 months ago. Guest now can comment via your sharable link without needing to sign up. It's a good thing. While they need to register their accounts on Ruttl when they want to save their editing. Sync is realtime, I can see comments from guests or collaborators. But it's also buggy as of now. I hope they can address it soon. One more thing, if they can add multiple translations and get rid of direct Google API, it would be great.

PROS

- Modern and Clean UI - Easy-to-use UX and guide tour - Live site editing feature

CONS

- Not working on Firefox, always loading. Then I have to use Chrome - Sometimes the inspect tool would choose wrong tag, then editing wouldn't work - Buggy: - It can't handle some special elements for example "Back to Top" button, the comment box will be covered by your OS status bar when you click it. - Replace Image often not working, sometime it will leave blank after you set a image. And it seems that SVG/WebP even PNG images are not well supported yet. - It seems that Ruttl relys on Google's API, so it's almost impossible to use in China.

Reason for choosing Ruttl

Promissing product with clean and modern UI. I am afraid of Markup.io may start to switch to monthly suscription. So I got Ruttl as a backup.

Reasons for switching to Ruttl

Picter is mostly a visual review tool that I purchased half a year ago. It has a pen tool which is great. But the development is slow and it's mainly for images and videos. So I decided to switch to other tools. Ruttl came to my eyes 2 months ago. It seems that it has a wonderful team and they don't reply on it so much to survive because it's a side project. This could be a good thing or a bad thing.

What a joke. Don't buy. Full with bugs, terrible customer support.

PROS

Looked like a good alternative to usepastel

CONS

The customer support was terrible. The response times were way too long and they deleted all of our customer data in trying to resolve an issue. They then proceeded to charge my card more than the pricing I signed up for. Run the other direction. It's not worth your time. The customer support reps clearly don't care enough to put the effort in.

Don't waste your time redesigning for real, Ruttl is faking it for you!

For any modern agency or freelancer who wishes to offer an extraordinary experience of creating or redesigning a website to its clients, Ruttl is the tool that has become essential. Where previously incomprehension or doubts could arise between the professional and the client, thanks to Ruttl, all this takes off: Ruttl helps the client to be understood, but also helps the professional to imagine the result. to the client. With Ruttl, sketches and tests are now easy, without ever wasting time setting them up for real unnecessarily. On top of that, the support team is responsive and attentive to their customers, so I highly recommend.

PROS

Unlimited projects Unlimited pages Unlimited collaborators Edit mode Comment mode Unlimited team member/user team Custom branding

CONS

Ruttl is only available in English for now, I hope the team will allow to have a custom platform.

Ruttl is a Game Changer

I have been working with a team of designers on a project for the past few months and we have used the Ruttl tool for communication. It allows us to share feedback on our project with each other and the client in a way that is easy to understand for everyone involved. If we have questions about the project, the team is able to answer them quickly and effectively. I love that it is a tool that is easy to use and is always available to use on demand.

PROS

My favorite features are the comments mode (love video comments, btw), live edits, and mobile reviews. But more than that, I love being able to present a website in such a collaborative way to clients. Everything is easy to keep track of and everyone feels like their voice is heard during review sessions. Further, if someone can't make it to the meeting, they can log in later to leave comments. Invaluable!

CONS

I honestly can't think of anything I didn't like. I've used it for three websites now, and didn't feel frustrated for any of them..
