Give Review, Get Review on

Posted April 21st, 2014 in Web Design. Tagged: , , , .

It can be difficult to get a review about website and apps for a budding web designer, bootstrapped companies or start-ups and paid reviews won’t appear affordable when you have a shoestring budget. But you shouldn’t drop the idea to have your website reviewed as it would always be helpful to get a review about your design as they always help you improve on your design.

Unfortunatelly, the application described here – Criticue – has been shut down and is no longer available. 🙁

criticue, launched in June 2013 and based in Poland is a platform for web designers, web administrators to exchange reviews and critiques about each other’s website. To get a review all you have to do is submit your website for a review and other people would tell you what they think about the website. The average review is short, crisp, exactly to the point and has 53 words.

Submitting Your Website for a Review

For submitting your website all you have to do is type the URL of the webpage you want the review for and click on Take Screenshot or Upload Screenshot on homepage. The website would take a screenshot of your website automatically and submit it for a feedback. Before you receive a review about your website you would have to write a review for another user’s website this forms the second step as you would be able to access your review only when you give others a review. It’s like helping others to help yourself. The reviews that you submit are moderated by the team to make sure that your review is spam free, focused and is sensible. After moderation you’ll receive the credit for your review and would be able to access the review for your own website. The Criticue team would take some minutes to review your feedback and you may have to wait for some time before you get the credits.


If you wish to get a feedback about a specific element on your website adding a personal message along with the screenshot. Adding a personal message would help the reviewers know that you want a feedback about a certain feature on your website. also provides the reviewers with a link to visit your website and experience it as any other regular visitor would .The reviewer is also allowed to rate your website on a scale of five.
Criticue also keeps a track of the time the reviewer spent on your website though it may not be that accurate but you can at least have an approximate value for the same. If you do not have time to visit other’s website and post a review to earn credits you can surely buy it too and you’ll have reviews pouring in within minutes.

Reviewing a Website

As you know that you’ll have to post a review to get your website reviewed and these reviews are moderated so that the person who’ll be receiving the review would get something out of it which means the review you post are supposed to be more than a sentence, should not contain foul words and should be easily understandable. There are many applications offering similar services but the way it is implemented on Criticue is unique and you would love the way you get your website reviewed on Criticue. They enforce the option of reviewing websites for others and this is what makes you have valuable comments about your design and you too would like to leave valuable comments for the other person to help him with the design. You can also post reviews about websites and help someone if you are bored or would like to have some time off your work.


Receiving a Review

When you receive a review for your website you’ll be allowed to rate the review you have just received. The site is based on peer reviews so you can never be sure of receiving a quality review as you cannot be sure that the other person has left you an honest and intelligent review. One should also be prepared to get a negative feedback while you post your website on Criticue. On the other hand there are some users on Criticue who would leave you a feedback that is not only limited to the design but also on the copy of your website, some wonderful ideas to implement and would let you know about some coding errors and typos too. There are people who would go beyond expectations to leave you an efficient review.
You can also respond to a review and get into conversation with the person who just sent you a review to clarify and follow up after a review, you can also see what the reputation of a reviewer is while the identity of the reviewer is kept anonymous and reviews confidential.
