While some of the feedback about the TechCrunch design feels somewhat subjective (view TechCrunch’s own post on the subject), I do agree with their feedback on the footer, that a different design would likely increase engagement.
In fact I posted my own redesign of the TechCrunch footer a while back. It will be interesting to see if something like this ever gets adopted.
Notable itself looks like it might be a useful tool if it is intuitive for non-technical people to use.
I know it is aimed at design teams, but I would find it really helpful for gathering feedback from other stakeholders (e.g. marketing) who are not always the best at giving their feedback in a clear and detailed manner.
I do like the options Notable provides to review code and copy as well as the visual design of the page.
That’s something you don’t see often. The history/tracking features of the tool look handy too. Fine, sign me up for the free version.
