Overall Satisfaction with InVision

Invision is used amongst our design team. It offers a quick and easy way to manage our prototypes and to share them with clients. We normally use invision clickthroughs to either show workflows to the development team, or provide to clients when we conduct usability tests. I know of other areas in the organization using invision, but we don't work super closely with other teams at the moment. We also use it to catalogue past projects in a more usable way than a bunch of balsamiq lo-fi's.
  • Easy to add files
  • Easy to modify files
  • Easy to share files
  • Intuitive options (hide click hints) etc.
  • It would be nice if there were more interactions
  • It would be nice if there were otherways to link the data, other software allows you to drag arrows between them.
  • It would be nice if there were more ways to organize your prototypes /archive them.
  • Invision has been used to engage customers, and they like feeling involved.
  • Invision can be a bit misleading on the design state of the product but that's more because it's not a comprehensive clickthrough. When people begin clicking around sometimes they'll assume everything would work even though we remind them it's not a complete product.
Axure is too expensive and often an overkill in time and effort to create a clickthrough.
Flinto is nice for interactions, but often times for workflow Invision is just easier to use.
Pixate has a little bit of a learning curve similar to Axure, but not as powerful.
I still use balsamiq but the clickthrough functionality in Invision is better.
Invision is really good for simple clickthrough prototypes. It fails if you want to display interaction -- pixate and flinto are better for those. Most of the time though a simple clickthrough is all that's needed to convey a workflow. However, if you want a more robust and hands on usability test, Axure is still the strongest choice.
