I wrote this article with the idea of sharing a tool that allows for better communication between you and your colleagues.
Great tool for even more real-time communication and clear explanation. You've done it again.
Super cool tool! Love the chat feature on there, reminds me of the 90's
it seemed to hang at 88% in the browser for me :( How does it compare Jacob to Cacoo in Hangouts for example?
Hey Paul, I don't have a lot of experience with Cacoo. I did mess around with it for a bit, and right off the bat saw that it didn't have some of the key features that I found with Twiddla. From what I saw (I could be wrong) Cacoo doesn't allow you to import documents or webpages. Pulling up a webpage and being able to make edits right on the page is the main reason I use Twiddla. If you can do that on Cacoo, then the problem becomes usability, because I couldn't find out how to do it.
Another issue with Cacoo is that you have to have a Google+ account to use it. There are still too many people who aren't on Google+. Twiddla allows anyone with the url to join. You don't have to grant it access to any of your personal accounts, you just send out the url and people can jump in and out of the session at any time.
cacoo has multiple login options including google apps and can do insert images including of urls. there's a tour to show you how, as with all new UI at first it's a little overwhelming at first.
i agree where twiddla wins is by being designed to allow you to start without demanding a user account creation. i suspect cacoo could achieve it then throttle ability to edit based on logged in or not. It's a sort of the classic ecommerce "allow them to buy before they register dilemma" that most owners fall on the business side and not the users main aim which is just to try the thing out for damn sake.
Cool, thanks for the clarification. I will have to give it a second look, I would hate to pass up a tool that might have the potential to make my life easier.
