Collaborative Work For… Everything!
PowWow is an application that allows you to screen share and work within any application with your colleagues. You can interact with the same application simultaneously by having multiple mouse pointers for every user. It worked fairly well in our tests. For example, you could share a text editor for pair programming or code reviews, or write emails collaboratively in an email application. To use PowWow, every collaborator has to install the application on their local machine.
So far only a Mac version is available, and the tool is in public beta, so things might break. Now that’s a little helper that can relieve the headache from many projects!

This basic functionality doesn’t wow or amaze the user, but if not incorporated the user will be immensely frustrated.
The key is to be fully aware of the functionality that exists elsewhere and to be certain of how and why it is being used.
Why use Keynote?
This is by no means a definitive list, but here are some of the key features for a designer using Keynote.

- Flexibility and non-destructive editing
- The cleverest grid lines I have ever met

Responsive Off Canvas Layouts For The Web
On mobile devices, the most difficult (and creative) constraint to work with is the lack of available space. All navigation options just have to be in the right place at the right time for user’s convenience - but it sounds much easier than it is when it comes to the actual development. Off Canvas Layouts, implemented by ZURB (and invented by Luke Wroblewski and Jason Weaver) might be a nice solution for this exact problem…
