Thanks for posting this Tony! I'm one of the co-founders of Whimsical. We just launched a few weeks ago and would love to hear what people think of the app.
Our first use case is diagrams – userflows, flowcharts, etc – like you mentioned.
Wireframes is up next and we're actively developing that right now. It re-uses a lot of the same interaction patterns and should be really fast to use. The plan is to open up our private beta for this in about a month.
Anyway, would very much appreciate feedback from the DN community. Thanks!
I'm told my browser is not supported, but Chrome and Firefox are. Vivaldi is built on top of Chromium and should work just fine. Blocking browsers is pretty oldschool.
Hey Christian, Vivaldi is now supported! Sorry about that.
This is really smooth. I'm always on the lookout for better tools for IA & user flow work and this seems like a promising start. I always end up falling back to draw.io, which is useful but clunky and not super flexible with making revisions.
Price point seems a little steep for what it offers currently. $120/year for essentially flow chart app is going to be a tough sell. The free version is very generous though as I would have expected roughly 1-2 for free and depending on the roll out of he "coming soon" features it could be worth the price soon.
I can't wait for Wireframe tool they've made.
A couple a days ago I posted here looking for something like this! Thanks!
The visual design of the site is really odd and it took me a bit to figure out exactly why this unsettles me so much. To be very clear, I am not talking about the product but the design of the landingpage.
The entire site is just noise - not saying that this was not intentional, but the design deliberately nullified all whitespace by filling it with shapes and colors. Really not my personal taste - but the site will stand out, not in a negative way.
As for the product, this might just be what I was looking for.
It certainly is a whimsical design.
This looks awesome! Looks far better than the other mapping tools out there, which all seem to feel like they were designed in the 90s. I can't wait to give this a go :)
subscription is a big bummer!
Looks nice, will give it a go!
I'm really liking it!
I've been using this for a few weeks and I'm really loving the simplicity and speed. Looking forward to see how it grows and evolves!
Wish you guys all the luck. Design is real nice, good job Steve. Looking forward to see more stuff.
