Perfect product that even learns you how to code

Reviewed on 2019/05/28

Pros

Framer is an amazing product as a design tool alone, but the features in animating, coding and the new App Store makes the product something else. It will teach you how to code and make amazing concepts that can be copied to production really easy!

Cons

No cons at all, the only con is maybe that there should be even more tutorials on how to code.

At first, my experience with Framer was very negative because it was hard to learn but after a week or so I was having a lot of fun making cool prototypes and interactions.

Pros

It's insanely great for making high-quality prototypes. When it comes to interactions it is a lot better than Figma. The magic motion was one of my favorites. The interactions are so good that they make a simple concept look very real and of high quality. Also using prototypes is really exciting, I was able to impress my colleagues by letting them interact with my app concept with the Framer app. Some people even thought my app was real and we're excited to use it!

Cons

Framer has a pretty big learning curve. It is very hard to learn it at first but once you learn and understand how it works you can make magic with it :)

Really easy to use

Reviewed on 2024/02/20

Pros

If you compare it to Wordpress or Webflow, Framer is really easy to use. The websites you create are fast and they look modern. I have used many other tools before and I like this one best so far.

Cons

If you want additional languages, it is quite expensive.

Explorative Tool for Designer BUT not practical at all

I tried to use Framer as a way to collaborate more with my devs and make their work easier. I found the exact opposite. Although what framer does is amazing and gives your design actual pulse and life, it also is not practical in the flow of Product Teams IMO. The investment it takes to learn coffeeScript in order to use Framer is really heavy. For me, it also took away a lot of the creative process. It had me thinking more of what we were constrained to, instead of what was possible. There should be a good mix of both with any product, but I felt Framer took away all creative thinking and made me feel like I needed to find what could fit in the frame. Also felt like it distanced me from my Dev team. The expectations that I could produce great, fully-functioning components were increasing and got some resentment that since I could technically produce front-end elements, that they didn't need to focus on Front-End Dev anymore. Overall, fun and explorative tool in the industry but again, just not a practical tool to use in today's product world.

Pros

Gives you the ability to produce elements and products exactly the way you design them. Allows you to open yourself up to learning Dev/Code. Creates empathy and understanding of what Dev Team goes through when implementing your designs

Cons

Not really that practical. If you think about the time you invest in learning a separate code language from what your Devs know, it requires a lot of initial investment on the designer to learn this language. Creates a weird relationship between you and your Dev Team because at times they expect much more out of your coding skills, and also creates this notion that you can do half of their job. Takes a lot away in the collaborative process that is crucial between Devs and Design to be able to come up with great solutions. Components created are often of no use due to constraints Devs have on coding guidelines in a company and often end up in wasted time.
