What can you use the app for?

Frontify is a web design and front end development tool that helps teams work more efficiently and effectively. The user can provide better documentation without wasting a lot of time on the process. An in-browser color picker is included along with an automatic color name proposal. Each project participant can supply comments and feedback that others can access through the application without spending precious time in meetings. Developer-focused tools are also included, such as a technology stack that lets users begin a new front end project in a matter of seconds. Frontify opens up the lines of communication between team members to reduce the chances of a misunderstanding while improving the way ideas, feedback and suggestions are shared.
