InVision

Web & mobile app prototype design-to-development platform

About InVision

InVision is a digital product design to development platform for design and developer teams to build high-fidelity web and mobile prototypes. Teams can turn ideas into screen designs using InVision's vector-based drawing and flexible layers. Users are able to prototype, manage, review, refine, and test digital products without a line of code, as well as collaborate in real time and collect feedback to help move projects forward.

InVision enables users to connect the entire product design workflow. Teams can explore ideas using the digital whiteboard to create freehand sketches, draw, wireframe, and collect feedback from team members on all work-in-progress designs. InVision's screen design tool comes with intuitive vector-based drawing functionality and flexible layers, including built-in animated transitions and micro-interactions, which allow static screens to become working prototypes. All team members are notified immediately of any changes made to designs, which are automatically synchronized to the entire team. Designers are able to switch to the latest version or roll back updates at any time. Users can also access multiple libraries directly from Sketch or InVision, and push or pull changes with a click.

Users can keep all brand and UX components such as images, fonts, colors, icons, and even usage documents within the system, providing team members with a single source of truth. The InVision platform integrates with third party collaboration tools such as Jira, Slack, Trello, DropBox, Basecamp, and more, allowing team members to seamlessly navigate the full design process in one place.

    The prototyping tool you need to use!

    We're able to quickly prototype full sites or small CRO changes and with the added ability to update on the fly,​ we can push changes live to anyone viewing live. It's allowed us to show off our thoughts and ideas to clients and stakeholders with great effect, wowing them every time​!

    Pros

    I mainly use Invision as a delivery method for presenting web and mobile site designs. We have a few internal sites we manage and I use Invision to show any CRO changes that are to be made. This makes it easy for design, dev and directors to see how things work and what it will look like before any time is spent on development.

    A bonus for our dev team is the inspect function, having uploaded form Sketch they can inspect fonts, colours, sizes and basic CSS attributes to exactly copy the design. Assets can also be downloaded​ which saves time if they change over time.

    Cons

    Some basic functionality such as fixed background images would be useful to convey how some designs should work. I know it's not meant to be a working site, it's just the little touches sometimes that could help others see your vision.

    I was amazed be the learning curve and how I managed to do things I needed to achieve quickly. Starting with prototypes I quickly realized that the other tools provided by inVision were very useful. Live Freehand for example which is a tool for quickly and collaboratively sketching out ideas and interfaces.
    The only thing which bothers me is the need to work in the browser and syncing of designs.

    Pros

    The speed at which I was able to achieve anything in inVision was unbilievable. The UX/UI of the tools is boiled down to the stuff one really needs and nothing else. The feature set is fine and the more one uses one thing, the more sense make other tools line Freehand and Sync.

    Cons

    It only runs in the browser and you have to upload your design. There is a sync plugin that helps with that, but the general building of prototypes need to be done in inVision.
    Special characters and diacritics in the filenames get ignored and mess with the automatic sorting of your screens.

    This tool as the potential to be very good. What I need are easily shared snapshots of a design at a given point which can not be overridden. e.g. This was X design at 14:35 on Thursday. Then we know that we are working with the right design and can inspect it and use it.

    It needs to be faster.

    Pros

    Inspect tool is great for giving to developers and asking them to pick colours, spacings etc from a design. There are also prototype functionalities which are very useful.

    Cons

    I find this software so clunky and slow. It takes an age to load, it's so heavy. We actually moan about this in sprint planning when there's an invision link in a ticket.

    There are also more pressing issues, such as the difficulty in versioning. Developers don't like it when you add a screenshot because it doesn't reflect the design, but when we reference invision, the design has changed and no longer meets the original scope of the ticket. It's great for designers if they want to be able to update a design at one click of a button in Sketch, but it can cause real arguments and confusion between developers.

    Navigation is also slow and confusing, but that might be the way our designers have set it up.

    Overall, my experience with InVision was great. I was actually fairly impressed with their features and capabilities. It was easy to get the hang of, had a lot of the same hot-keys as Adobe Photoshop and worked well within a team setting.

    Pros

    What I liked most about InVision was actually surprising...Their built-in animations for prototypes were amazing and the ability to create multiple "boards" or project pages within one screen was impressive. Also, very cool how I was able to sync projects online for my team to then view.

    Cons

    To be honest, InVision did lag at times...I actually found the software to freeze up on me, erroring out the program. Also, once a project gets pretty hefty with multiple boards/animations, it can be hard to navigate...It's important to stay as organized as possible when building projects within InVision.

    This tool has helped me to present and explain the website design and behavior successfully and accurately to clients - at the same time, that improves the communication between all the parties involve in the development and approval.

    Pros

    I like the ease of use of the platform and the intuitive process of prototyping is on the platform.

    The mobile version tools are great since they make the website feel almost as a final product with the animations and interactions.

    The integration with Craft make it so easy to have all the pages updated and properly organized in minutes.

    Cons

    There is still room for improvements on the platform, like add features that allow having fixed/sticky elements on the prototype besides the header and footer.
