Overall Satisfaction with draw.io

Draw.io is one of the most functionally useful products out there. Completely free, the product gives you the ability to quickly build flowcharts, workflows, wireframes, and prototypes to get your point across. As product lead, I've personally used draw.io for all the use cases mentioned above. It has helped us design user experience on our platform without breaking the bank.
  • It's free to use.
  • It integrates with Google drive so your work autosaves with every change.
  • It's extremely user-friendly and easy to pick up.
  • As you work in a browser, the app seems to lag if you work on it for a while.
  • The app appears to glitch from time to time if you work for longer periods of time, making you lose some of your work of you're not careful.
  • Exporting your work in the form you would like can be challenging. You need to pay close attention to the previews and page layouts to make sure your work comes out the way you envision it.
  • Helped us prototype our ideas to review extremely quickly.
  • Allowed us to explain our vision to developers with our own prototypes created for free.
  • As the app was free, the ROI was amazing considering we got so much out of it without having to spend any funds of our own.
UXPin and InVision are great applications to use to prototype and create working designs for web development projects. However, they both require some payment from your end as well as design knowledge to validate the financial investment. Draw.io is easy to use, free and requires no prior design experience to pick up. It's great to use for budget-conscious startups and budding designers to learn, build and iterate experiences and workflows.
If you have small budgets and need to quickly create prototypes or flowcharts, draw.io is perfect for you. It's free, easy to use and user-friendly. Even if you're a beginner and have no design skills, the application is intuitive and has a simple learning curve making it extremely easy to pick up and use.
