Overall Satisfaction with InVision Freehand

We use InVision Freehand to collaborate in real-time with teams around the world. We also use it to post UI designs and gather feedback and comments from internal stakeholders and end-users.
  • Nothing comes to mind
  • From my experience, sharing boards with guests makes them log in to edit, even if you select the option to allow unregistered users to edit. We waste 10 minutes at the beginning of each meeting trying to help people figure out how to log in and edit shared boards.
  • Launching a board in Safari brings my new MacBook Pro with 32gb+ memory to a standstill even when nothing else is open.
  • Selecting and aligning shapes is a pain. You have to click the border or else you'll end up editing the text instead of selecting the shape. There are no distribution options, only top/bottom and left/right align.
  • It's better than nothing, but not better than its competitors. We only use it because we're locked into a contract.
In my opinion, InVision Freehand is worse than every other option I've tried. I would not have selected InVision Freehand if given the choice, but it wasn't my decision at our company.
