I’m working on **a side-project for giving feedback on developers’ implementation**. So when you see something wrong on the implemented app, you can send comments seamlessly. While the product is in development, I launched a site: https://flawlessapp.io/feedback (I hope, I will finish the alpha in February, have something working already) **What do you think about the concept in general?** **What can be improved in landing design?** Does it clearly explained on the landing? Any other feedback? Notes: - the copy is still in the draft stage, so please forgive “non-native copy” - the design was done by my friend, based my wireframes - I & my team run a week of user testing with the first Sketch prototype. Bases on that prototype, we defined features.
