I really like InVision. They're great for dumping a bunch of sketches on and showing someone else your ideas super easily. I highly recommend them for prototyping apps (plus they work on mobile!).
I have used Basecamp for my project management system while in school at Bowling Green State University and at KHM Travel Group.
Basecamp is a great tool for our non-development related collaborations. Everything from marketing to corporate planning.
We use zeplin as an interface between designers, developers and stakeholders for sharing, improving and discussing designs
Since we are fully distributed team, we must use these kinds of tools for collaboration. This one is used for UI/UX
Mainly for the Mobile Application. Invision is an awesome tool for fast prototyping, especially on mobile devices.
I used the free version some time ago since the paid version is barely affordable as a business in germany.
Another way we help show you from the very beginning what things may look like, and make changes accordingly.
