Overall Satisfaction with InVision Freehand

We use it to collaborate. A lot of virtual meetings will use InVision Freehand as a way to engage with one another during a presentation. I think it's nice to see everyone's engagement in real-time, so I would consider that a plus. We like to use sticky notes a lot to share ideas and find points of commonality.
  • Collaborate with collegues
  • Interact and engage in real time
  • Offer a visual format for brainstorming discussions
  • Depending on how many people are using InVision Freehand at once, it can feel a little chaotic.
  • I don't like how I start to feel sensory overload watching everyone's mouse moving all around the page.
  • I think this isn't inherently a problem...but since InVision Freehand is still relatively new I think users just need more time to acclimate to all it offers.
  • Brainstorming and collaborating
  • Allows the company to brainstorm in a new and engaging way.
  • Allows company to bounce ideas of one another in real-time.
  • Encourages collaboration and free flowing of ideas.

Would you buy Freehand by InVision again?


We use this tool to collaborate on virtual calls. It's nice to have a visual format for brainstorming sessions. I enjoy having another means of interacting and engaging with colleagues. That being said, at times it can be visually overwhelming if you're collaborating with a bunch of people in real-time since you see each person's mouse movements. It can feel a little overwhelming, in that sense.

Evaluating InVision Freehand and Competitors

Yes - I think before Freehand came on the scene we primarily used Microsoft teams or Menti as a way to collaborate and exchange ideas--outside of course the regular Invision boards, prototypes, etc. But Freehand was nice because it allowed us to colloborate in real time. I would equate Freehand to the Google Docs of design.

I wasn't a part of purchasing the product. But our designers use Invision and Invision Studio a lot so I think there was a lot of energy around trying out Freehand as well.
