Overall Satisfaction with InVision Freehand

We use InVision Freehand to collaborate as a team of designers, writers, and user experience professionals. We wireframe webpages, storefronts, and other marketing materials. As well as wireframing, we use InVision Freehand when we're at the creative ideation stage, to gather swipe and curate inspiration. It allows us to work together in real-time even though the team is spread all over the world.
  • It facilitates remote working practices. We don't experience lag, even when multiple users are working on the same page on different continents.
  • It allows almost infinite space aboard. No need to have multiple boards for the same project, we can just move over and start in a new area.
  • It allows easy export of work to pdf and other formats, for sharing outside the team.
  • The functionality isn't great compared to Miro. With Miro, there are many more options for hand drawing and objects.
  • The limited color palette isn't great for design work, it would be useful to be able to select any color
  • Ability to work together remotely
  • Flexibility to move things around and really improvise to bring together rough mocks
  • Ease of use for every team member, whatever their background
  • It's hard to quantify ROI with what we're using it for, but it has allowed us to work collaboratively across continents in a way that wasn't possible before.
I prefer Miro to Freehand. I think it has a simpler interface and slightly better design features, like more line weights and a better color palette. On the whole, the features of the two are very similar and there is little to choose between them. We chose Freehand because we already use InVision to present to clients for comment on creative work.

It's great for rough and ready group work as a remote team. It's obviously not going to be the choice for final design work, but even at that in-between stage of a little more finished, most work needs to be done outside of the board and exported in, because of the drawing/color/line weights we need are not there.
