    Pros: 

    It looks nice

    Cons: 

    Very buggy and not a lot of functionality

    I was initially very excited to use Bizplan. As a founder, I would much rather be working on tasks that directly impact the success of the business, not accounting. However, when I started using this platform, it seems to be very poorly designed. It's very buggy.

    The very first page broke and I had to manually change an HTTP request to get by. Finally it asked me to upgrade to premium, even though I was already a premium user. I started to enter some financial data and it kept failing to save, or closing out on me.

    Beyond the bugs, the design of the platform is sub-par. It's not overly easy to navigate and could certainly be described as confusing.

    All-in-all, I would not recommend BizPlan to my greatest competitor/enemy. Avoid this product at all costs.

  • Pros: 

    It's actually evolving in a positive direction over the last 1 year. The interface is getting more intuitive & the speed is also improving.

    Cons: 

    There is an obvious need of Business Plan Template when it comes to presentation/pitching. I think this would come handy if available.

    I've been using this App for about 1 year and I can see the evolution. Some of the Startups.com features are not applicable in my country so I only use the BizPlan app alone.

    Last year, the app was buggy indeed and I had to test it with several browsers instead (mine is Safari ;)) But over time, improvement to the UI is apparent and the UX is goes without saying.

    For now, I think BizPlan can use some development in the Mobile Version compatibility or a lite mobile app to simply showing it from tablet or edit some of the descriptive content in each plan whenever users are having discussion on the go or having a sudden inspiration while commuting or in a meeting.

    Yes I do personally recommend it compared to another app that offering the same functionality in SS and several other apps that I already purchased in Mac AppStore.

@alexchudik darn, I didn't see the 50% off code before I signed up today, but I'll use it for next month. So far I'm impressed and it's making my job of putting together a pitch for a new venture easier! Thanks

Is that just Knowlium but with different landing page? All screenshots look very much the same.

@imchrisdavis I honestly don't know. But the fact pricing is absolutely identical made me thought they are same products.

@tahorg @imchrisdavis We worked with the Knowlium team on this because we loved the Knowlium product. Knowlium, however, is still its own product/company/brand.

@wilschroter sounds great. I think a sandbox area would be great. At least enough to discover it's value.
