Overall Satisfaction with Lucidspark
I have been using Lucidspark as a visual aid when songwriting live on streaming platforms like Twitch or YouTube Live. It is an extremely easy-to-understand interface and was easy to learn to use live with my viewers. This makes tying together ideas and plans much easier, and creates a fun and interactive way to illustrate the brainstorming process to my viewers. I am the only one with access to these documents, but add things as they are suggested. I do not use any of the sharing and permission functions. I have only used the free version so far, but am strongly considering the full version due to its versatility and unique features.
- Attractive and customizable presentation.
- Easy to use and easy to learn functionality.
- Useful navigation shortcuts.
- Supports images, gifs, and more for added fun & presentability.
- The ability to change background colours/default layouts.
- More customizable text box shapes.
- Lower-cost versions with limited functionality, perhaps?
- Visual interest for viewers/collaborators.
- Quick and easy way to save ideas, good and bad.
- The free demo version of LucidSpark gives just enough functionality to get acquainted with the program and run with ideas.
I learned to use LucidSpark live in front of my viewers and it was seamless. It takes no time at all to pick up and get acquainted with the functions and controls. Considering how easy it is to learn and work with, it’s surprisingly attractive visually. Everything you would want is right where you would expect, and I never needed a tutorial or forums to do what I wanted. Even if you have no experience with other visual aid software, Lucidspark can be used right out of the box, so to speak.
I have not yet needed to use any of this functionality. I can see the value of connecting Lucidspark to Google Drive and the like, but that is not within my scope or need for the program. I typically use the application as a “meeting runner”, and add everything to the chart myself based on feedback through chat. I have not had an opportunity to use many of the sharing/collaboration functionality.
Lucidspark is by far the best virtual whiteboard I have come across so far. It has added some much-needed visual interest to my songwriting streams and allows me to keep track of all the different ideas, easily colour code as needed, and helps keep the viewers feeling engaged. I have gotten a lot of positive feedback from my viewers regarding the Lucidspark app as a whiteboard, and it makes my stream stand out.
I have not needed any support for Lucidspark. I have not encountered any issues or problems, nor have I had any trouble finding functions or shortcuts. I keep a fairly large, living project with a lot of information on it at any given time, and nothing has been lost, damaged, or corrupted so far. As such I have no opinions on the support.

I went with Lucidspark primarily for the free version; it still allowed me to use the functionality I needed without making a large investment out of the gate. I can also keep my documents with Lucidspark, as most apps have a trial period after which you can no longer access your projects. This was very important to me.
Brainstorming with multiple collaborators is impressively simple and visually appealing. It does what it says on the tin, and it does it quite well. Copying text from Lucidspark to other apps (notepad, word, etc) will create some odd artifacts in the text that will be a little cumbersome to remove if you are working with large walls of text. If you’re working in person with a client or collaborator, however, a whiteboard might be a better and more cost-effective investment.
