Criticue.com is a feedback exchange site that provides a fast way to exchange critique and brainstorm your web designs with a community of web designers, entrepreneurs and usability experts.
It’s a fair one-for-one exchange; for one site you review, you get one review of your own website. The more you post, the more feedback you receive.
What differs it from the existing review sites? Criticue.com focuses on first impressions allowing you to make fast, incremental changes to your site based on received feedback. It’s also free, friction-less and requires no signup.
I enjoy this product because of the streamlined community of entrepreneurs, usability experts, and web designers. This group of people is truly interested in getting your input about their site as well, in return, so, the review of your website will be pretty concise.
I appreciate the flat and simple interface of the product – it is easy to use and clear, which allows you to stay focused on the website you are critiquing in the platform.
A detailed account page allows you to see all of the reviews you have submitted and received, along with an inbox of communication you’ve had with other website owners.
There is nothing difficult and overwhelming about the product, which I like. You don’t have to think to much and it is relatively intuitive – always appreciated.
A minor tweak I would introduce would be to create a more clear separation of the review area in the platform versus the web page displayed below it. Other than that, a strong product which allows me to feel comfortable sharing my website for critique as well as socializing with other individuals sharing my same interest and issue.
