Need help which tool to be use from your perspective

October 21, 2019 at 10:30am

Guys, I need help on designing which tool to be use for UX flows, mind mapping, charts. For now I am choosing between these 3 - https://www.mindmeister.com/ https://flowmapp.com/ https://whimsical.com/ did any of you used these tools? What are your pros and cons? Let me know please :) Thanks!

I have used both XMind and Whimsical and both are wonderful tools. I would say Xmind is very extensive with lots of options, templates, lots of customisations etc. while as Whimsical is fresh, smooth, easy to use. In Whimsical the connecting lines sometimes act weirdly.

I use Whimsical now for pretty much everything - it's the easist and fastest way I have found to get stuff out my head and onto the screen without having to spend too much time learning the tool. Output looks decent and has some good features for sharing and commenting etc. I'd like some more options for sharing into stuff like Notion and GitHub etc. There might be more complex stuff it can't handle but I've not come across that yet and try to keep all this stuff simple :)
