Reviews of Whimsical
Comments: We do employ Whimsical on a daily basis for several customers project, and we even invite them to collab with us, so we can take a better glimpse on their demands and wishes. It says clearly how glad we are employing this great tool.
It does have a user-friendly interface. The free tier allows any user to make a lot of tasks The real time collab works as it should. There are plenty of features to organize and schematize any work load.
The drag and drop feature is a little clumsy often, and it makes it a little difficult to manage some items simultaneously.
Comments: I can give this software 5 stars since it is super easy to employ, the tools are user-friendly, and it does offer several premium features for free users.
This is the tool that cover many of different management software products. Creating flux diagrams, managing sections of a website, creating a schedule, producing organigrams, many things can be done with ease in this tool.
I haven't found any considerable reason to dislike the software.
Helps teams find the best ways to plan joint tasks
Comments: It is wonderful how, thanks to Whimsical, we were able to involve all team members in preparing comprehensive dashboards that visually illustrate the workflow charts and models that have been agreed upon, so that all members have the ability to accurately understand the duties, sequence of operations, and required procedures.
Whimsical is one of the best tools for teamwork, as it enables us to interact in real time through the many tools it provides to easily collect, synthesize, and present ideas. It's great how we can gather team input, and our customizable ready-made templates help us a lot, so we can collaborate on graphs, wireframes, and flowcharts and bring them out with great visualization. In addition, Whimsical also enables us to insert and format all the notes and add shapes, images and videos within the boards with ease.
Whimsical is free of complications, but sometimes when the canvas contains a lot of text boxes, shapes, and arrows, the system becomes slow and this may pose some difficulties in linking and coordinating the components as required.
Not Bad But Not Good Also!
Comments: I am using whimsical for one my project Insisted by client. We are using these software mostly for our roadmap discussion and to log future deployments and Ideas. Overall experience is so so not bad but not good also. There are some areas need to improve specially when we add cards into stacks. Little chaos will happened when users try to edit or add card simultaneously.
I am using this software more than six month for project roadmap planning and retrospective discussions. Pros are like it is quick and drag drop cards works great. Easy to create workflow. Option for colouring is very handy.
What i dislike about it is interface is not simple and difficult to understand at first. Collaboration is not that easy and difficult to align. Only limited sets of card can be displayed on stack user not aware of where they can find all list of cards
Easiest-to-use flowchart and wireframing tool
Comments: Whimsical is a joy to use on a daily basis. It manages to be as good at flowcharts as it is at wireframing. Of course you won't go as far as you would with Figma or Moqups, but it's plenty enough to materialize ideas, in a personal or professional context. And it's pretty cheap for what it offers !
Tools to create all kinds of charts are legion. So are tools for wireframing. Some are easy to use, some do great things. Very few manage to achieve both at the same time, but Whimsical does.
Not much to criticize there. In the wireframing library, some additional components would be nice to have.
