“It’s been awhile since I took a close look at this product but OMG. I was blown away so bad... It has changed a lot and it feels so click and so intuitive and y’all added a truckload of features!!! ... The biggest markers of success imho was that (1) It worked really well, and 2) because the experience was so smooth, as user there were times I forgot I was even using Visual Tagger (the product) because it doesn’t call attention to itself by being difficult to use - I was able to focus on my task and feel really reliable about it. Amazing work. I am such a fan of you.”
