Overall Satisfaction with InVision Freehand

I used InVision Freehand for holding virtual retrospectives for teammates. Also, story mapping and other agile ceremonies. Lots of team use it for UX design and brainstorming. Many times we need to draw out a mock up and have the teams work around it or with it. The UX person will walk us through the mock up.
  • Easy to use.
  • Lots of plug in options.
  • Better formatting options.
  • Easier to share boards where people do not have to sign in.
  • Do not limit the amount of boards companies can have.
  • Mock up for UX.
  • Technology mapping.
  • Brainstorming
  • Sharing boards has been a challenge.
  • Having everyone log in in tough.
Figma is far superior. They have templates and great video integration. The template portion is the best. You can choose from many and even have a network of others that are creating templates for people to use. I am sure InVision Freehand has a lot of the same features, but they are not easy to find.

Would you buy Freehand by InVision again?


Sharing boards was always an issue. Also, we were only allowed so many freehand boards per project. The main reason we stopped using InVision Freehand is that it only gave us so many admin licenses. We need more and the price was too much to upgrade. Please see into cutting costs for admins.

Using InVision Freehand

We switched over from InVision Freehand, so currently I do not think anyone uses it. We switched all of our boards over from freehand to Figma. The people that did use it were in the UX department and agile department.
  • UI design.
  • Agile Retrospectives.
  • Story Mapping.
  • Brainstorming sesh.
  • Agile retros.
  • Brainstorming
  • Just drawing funny pictures.
  • UI design.
  • Timelines
Figma seems to be a far superior product.
