5 Mobile Collaboration Apps Top Developers Can’t Live Without

Post on hotpaperlantern.com, April 15, 2018.

It’s no secret that mobile apps are taking over the planet. According to a recent report from comScore, time spent on mobile apps accounts for seven out of every eight minutes of media consumption on mobile devices.

But we’re not just using mobile apps to read articles on BuzzFeed. We’re also using mobile apps at work. Today’s top developers are no exception. In fact, they’re mobile app power users. They know what they like, are dedicated to finding the right solutions for their teams, and are comfortable critiquing mobile apps of all shapes and sizes.

Here are five developer-nominated mobile apps that drive collaboration . . .


There are a number of apps in the marketplace that offer prototyping. Caleb Freeman, Senior VP of Customer Experience at Hot Paper Lantern, swears by InVision and UXPin.

Freeman wears a lot of hats in his role — he leads his team in creating end-to-end customer experiences, but also finds himself working as a UX architect, UI designer, and full stack developer. He needs prototyping apps that allow him to seamlessly communicate with key stakeholders as well as his team.

“I find the collaborative nature of InVision to be extremely powerful,” said Freeman. “Although this product is not designed for developers per se, it allows them to gain clarity and a better understanding on ideas and expectations, based on static images and transition effects.”

Freeman also recommended UXPin as a great product for low-medium fidelity prototyping, which works well for proof of concept and usability testing. “I typically start in Sketch, transition to InVision or UXPin, then progress into code dev for iteration,” he said.
