Overall Satisfaction with Marvel

I use Marvel for freelance web development tasks. I work as freelancer on upwork and and work as web designer and developer. I use Marvel for designing the wire-frames for the websites or the blogs. It helps me create the website design mockup very quickly as compared to Adobe Photoshop which I used earlier for these tasks.
  • Designing Mockups for the websites: Its very simple and quick to do, earlier I created not more than 2-3 mockups for the clients for particular websites and client chose the one, but using Marvel, the process became so fast that now I give them 5-6 mockups to chose the best one.
  • Option to make the website for particular targeted device. Earlier I only made websites for desktop/laptop or mobiles/tablet, I made my very first web app for ios for my client using marvel.
  • Now I dont just create mockup for the desktop version for my client but for all the devices which for sure makes my client more happy and gives a clear idea that what their web app or website is going to look like in iphone, or iwatch.
  • We cannot modify the existing elements in the tool which is a drawback.
  • Little difficult to understand the complete features of the application.
  • It helped me improve my productivity. It took me lot of time to manually design mockups earlier when I used Adobe Photoshop to do it.
  • Because of quickly creating mockups, now I provide my clients with more than 4-5 options which is welcomed by clients and make them happy.
  • Definitely the ROI and improved, because of time saved and happy clients.
Marvel is a very competitive product as compare to all these other products, but the products I have mentioned, mostly are paid application except for Vectr. Considering the amount of features you get and quality of the application for free is awesome and that is why I recommend Marvel. If you want to go for paid application I would suggest trying Webflow as I just loved it. Vectr is also a very good free prototyping tool.
Marvel is suited for:
1. Definitely for creating mockups, it is the best application, the fastest application and lets you do this very quickly.
2. A lot of good features are available for free, not really required to upgrade to the PRO version.
3. Really easy to use.
4. Creating hotspots is really easy and quick to do.

Less Appropriate:
1. Doesn't really have a lot of animation options.
