Flinto vs InVision
Last updated: August 30, 2018
Flinto makes it quick and easy to create prototypes that look just like the real thing. And Flinto doesn’t disrupt your current workflow because it uses the screens you’ve already designed. Read on to learn how Flinto works. Link your screen designs together in a completely visual, intuitive way. You might even say it’s fun. Iterate by dragging new screens on top of old ones. Screen gets replaced, links stay put. Hold option while hovering over a screen and links are drawn automatically.
InVision lets you transform your designs into beautiful, interactive web & mobile mockups and prototypes. Upload your designs and quickly turn them into clickable, interactive prototypes complete with gestures, transitions & animations. Send a link to open designs in a browser or on a mobile device, or present them in real-time using our LiveShare presentation tool that revolutionises the design meeting.
Face to face in the news:
2018 - InVision acquired design visibility tool Wake to win over Flinto
Online design platform InVision has acquired Wake - design tool focused squarely on supporting design visibility throughout a particular organization. Wake allows companies to share design assets and view work in progress as designers build out their screens, logos, or other designs. Design team leaders, or other higher-ups at the company, can upvote certain design projects or give feedback on specific tweaks. One of the most attractive features of Wake is that sharing on the Wake platform was implicit, rather than on InVision where designers have to take an extra step to upload their prototypes on InVision. Wake will continue to operate independently within InVision, but some of its tools will be integrated into the InVision core product. Moreover, as part of the deal, Wake will be introducing a free tier. So InVision gets better design visibility tool than Flinto
2016 - Collaborative prototyping tool InVision raises $55M to strike back at Flinto
Collaborative prototyping and design tool InVision has raised a $55M Series D round. While InVision has no specific plans for the new funding, they will continue making strategic acquisitions where appropriate. The company has bought five smaller design tools over the last year, most of which were done as acquihires. InVision now has more than two million registered users, and is used by 70 percent of the Fortune 100. This includes high-profile technology companies like Facebook, Apple and Disney. In almost all of these organizations the design team are the ones who start the relationship with InVision. But, often times the prototyping tool is quickly adapted by the rest of the organization, even people who aren’t necessarily involved directly in the design process. For example a company’s CFO may use the tool to give feedback on a particular payment flow that previously was only built by developers.
