Overall Satisfaction with InVision

InVision is used across the whole organization for UX purposes. All the prototypes for online apps, mobile apps etc are all first created in Sketch and then exported to InVision. It is a great collaboration tool, where our clients, developers and us - designers can mark out thoughts at any point of the project and respond and share their opinions. I love that I can hand off the prototype to developers and they can go into inspect mode and get a greta level of detail: pixel, percent dimensions, colors, font, sizes etc.
  • Very easy to export Sketch files (where prototypes are actually created) into Invision and preserve the interactivity.
  • Additional interactivity can be added in InVision. Like scrolling with locked footer.
  • Clients, designer and developers can collaborate - leave notes and respond to notes made by others.
  • InVision's biggest problem for me right now is that if the change I make in Sketch is minor - it does not get picked up when I update my prototype in InVision. So I have to add large bright noticeable objects - then update the prototype then remove those objects and update the prototype again. It is a very time-consuming work around.
  • InVision prototypes can be accessed by using a public link - when I need to update something I can do it and anyone working on the project can still use the same link and the prototype would refresh under it. So even after the project is done and I do not actively talk to my clients or developers - they can still continue using the same link - it is very useful.
  • I can hand off my InVision prototype to developers and not spend time (save company money) on outlining every element - InVision does that for me.
InVision freehand is a great tool for brainstorming. It is great for collaboration in general. For example: I give permission to a number of people to access the prototype - they can then access it when it is convenient for them. When they make a comment - I get notified so nothings gets missed.
