    "I had a damaged flash drive with a bunch of photos on it of my family. I needed to get the data off of it, so I used Stellar Phoenix Data Recovery. It got all my photos for me perfectly. I will be using it again if something like this comes up."

      "If you work with a team of people in the design world (such as apps, websites, etc.), you know it can be a real challenge to stay organized and manage a project within the constraints of standard business software. Invision provides prototyping tools so you can get the job done more easily and efficiently! You can work up a prototype in no time and it's not just a static design - it's actually a working model with clicky hotspots and the ability to add your own elements. Highly recommended!"

      "UXPin represents one of a relatively large number of Agile UX prototyping and software design tools currently available for rapid collaborative software and system design and collaborative software problem solving. I would not rank this particular application as the best in its class, however, specific to small and mid-sized teams and collaborative software problem solving. User reviews are good to above average, but are not excellent for this particular product."

      "This solution requires you to pay a monthly subscription fee. You can find similar tools that accomplish the same thing for a one time fee, which is more cost effective cost wise or if you do not like being tied to a subscription."
