Overall Satisfaction with InVision

We are a small team but we work in different locations and different times. Invision is the place where our designer uploads his assets. He also uses it demonstrate screen transitions. We then have a back and forth communication on the UI and UX to see that it meets our business goals which are usually aimed at making the end user happy.
  • The "Inspect" feature is terrific. The designer doesn't need to come up with css mapping guide. It's automatic!
  • Commenting on top of the assets is super easy and looks good.
  • Working on prototypes saves a lot of development time.
  • You need to upload complete assets as a page. You can't drag and drop elements to create screens.
  • InVision is focused on designers. That's good, but some focus on non designers (developers, product) would be nice.
  • Time is money. A small number of people working on prototypes saves time for the many other people on different levels on the tech stack and departments that need to be in sync on the product (sales, marketing, QA, etc...)
  • InVision helps you set a clear target for development, which is highly motivating.
InVision has a better user experience and is easier/nicer to use. However Proto.io lets you design mocked up pages without a need of a designer. Proto.io has a very limited free tier. With InVision you can get a lot done with the free tier or basic tier. InVision studio has great potential in making InVision a one stop shop for design.
If your have designers working with product or do the product from the start of each feature InVision is great for you.
If your product does a lot of work prior to the designer coming in Proto.io would be a better solution.
InVision is great for communications so it's great for big teams. Even more when working on different times and locations. Products that don't have many pages and interactions don't have much to benefit for InVision.
