    I've been using Lucidspark for about 7 years as a Business Analyst working on IT projects. The tools are intuitive and easy to learn. It's a fast way to develop wireframes, verify requirements and create a compelling visual environment. I love its full set of shapes, flow diagram objects, and endless whiteboard & its ease of use; it has saved many hundreds of hours and enhanced collaboration with my teams and end-user clients.

    Pros

    Abstract

    • Versioning for desginers
    • Collaboration between team members
    Christopher Fritz | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Lucidspark

    • Intuitive and simple design is one of its strong points, so zero learning curve!
    • Clearing away the whole board or parts of the board is a breeze to avoid confusion.
    • The different pens with colors and nib thickness allow easy explanations.

    Cons

    Abstract

    • Asset exports are not as great as Zeplin and others.
    • Filtering within files.
    Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Lucidspark

    • CSV export of Lucidspark board cannot be imported into another board.
    • I cannot import contents from Miro (or other tools) to import my whiteboards from other tools into Lucidspark.
    • JIRA integration was clunky and I accidentally created 16 cards in JIRA without realizing it. All selected items in a flow chart became separate JIRA stories, which was surprising.

    Abstract has a difficult learning curve. If a feature-branch workflow is new to you, then it will take some getting used to. They make a lot of updates to the interface and these feature releases get ahead of their documentation. They rely heavily on an excellent customer support team and are present on various Slack channels to help design professionals with issues.

    It is so easy to get started when you first open the application. There is a tutorial option and I might have looked at it a couple of times when I was first using LucidSpark (early adopter). Now everything seems to be intuitive. I've recently started using breakout boards to keep client sessions together.

    Abstract by nature is complex and has to respond to whatever changes in Sketch. So there are frequent issues. Support can be slow to respond and are not always helpful, but they are quick to find and patch the bugs. Overall, it's not the best support, but it hasn't been detrimental.

    Lucidspark has been one of the best collaboration tools that I have come across in recent times. it has been very useful, it had made collaboration easier and more effective. The team is being able to better brainstorm and organize workflows. Whiteboard has been an extremely helpful and go-to tool for any of our drawing-out problems.

    I purchased and administer Abstract. It was requested by our design department who evaluated it.

    Lucidspark is actually designed for collaborative work, whereas Microsoft Visio and Snagit are designed for other things and thus do not work as well for collaboration. Lucidspark is a great tool for interactive teams looking to take meetings and discussions to the next level.

    Return on Investment

    Abstract

    • Single source of truth for the team.
    • Could quickly get expensive with corporate accounts.

    • I've made a Planning Poker template in Lucid that we use for Sprint Planning, and it's made it easier to switch to Story Points and forego task breakdown and time estimation altogether. It does save time during Sprint Planning but that's less significant than the fact that developers no longer feel the need or pressure to conform to whatever random time estimate was provided. That's thanks to Story Points, not Lucid itself, but Lucid surely made Planning Poker a lot easier than it used to be. As an added bonus, it stores voting history, so we can go back during the Retrospective and review particular items of interest that we completely botched the sizing of.
