Thank you to everyone who made it out to our event last night at Indeed (in Meguro). We had a great turnout and two inspiring talks by Aaron Kovalcsik (Indeed) and Ryan Ruel (AQ Works). Thank you Indeed for hosting us in your great space! Now, onto the link sharing.

We learned about a handy app called Textwell, which allows you to send memos and messages to a variety of other apps.

For the slack-haters among us, check out Twist, an app that focuses more on threads than direct messages.

Just in case you can’t have enough prototyping tools, Kite Composer is another application worth trying out.

The Best Interface is No Interface” is now for sale on Amazon Japan in Japanese!

Origami has released even more possibilities for complex interactions when trying to make prototypes.

Along the same line as Origami, Noodl is another prototyping platform that could be useful for quick user testing.

Our friends at AQ have made their own Slackbot: Meekee. Meekee looks at google calendars and helps remind members of upcoming meetings.
