    Pros: 

    Simple. Delightful. Joy to use.

    Cons: 

    None

    I have used Whimsical from the time it came out and have loved it ever since. The easiest way for me to get thoughts out of my head and on to the screen and then iterate on those ideas. Their sticky notes product complements their other two offerings, both of which are equally delightful. I am waiting to see what they do with mindmaps.

    Added bonus: as a visual thinker who writes a lot, I was using Whimsical's flowcharts to sketch my ideas, export the jpeg and flesh them out in Notion (another favorite). Sticky notes gives me an intermediate step since it has expandable cards so I find myself using it instead of flowcharts for certain purposes.

    As useful for writers as it is for designers and developers.

    Add the ability to organize folders and nest boards within each other and you would have solved most of my remaining problems.

    Loving this addition to the already AMAZING tool that Whimsical offers. I’ve been a paid user since the launch and really excited to build sticky notes into my work. Great job, guys!

    Pros: 

    Easy to use & adding new features at an awesome pace

    Cons: 

    None that I've found.

    Would love the availability for folks to copy text directly from wireframes when I send them a share link (I use this for content wireframes), but other than that Whimsical is my go-to tool for wireframes now!

  • Pros: 

    Nice UI, easy to use

    Cons: 

    Feature light for the price

    While the UI is way nicer than other diagramming/kanban tools, I've been making diagrams with it and it just can't match up feature wise to other, cheaper offerings like LucidChart. If you need a quick flowchart it's great, and I'm using it for that, but it's too pricey for me to replace something else!

    Pros: 

    Simple and attractive UI,

    Focused product features done really well

    Free-form organziation of project processes

    Live collaboration

    Cons: 

    Focused feature sets aren't for everyone:

    No PDF export,

    No free-form drawing,

    No Templates,

    No integrations with dropbox, drive, or adobe

    I enjoy using whimsical for charts and wireframes. I've used it successfully on a couple UX projects for sitemaps and simple wires. I currently actively use and pay for a competing product for organzing my other projects because of it's extensive features and capabilities. For whimsical, the addition of these stickies is perfect because it enables me to do task analysis and project management in a better interface. I'm considering switching entirely to whimsical now. I haven't tried it in every scenario but it looks so nice and peaceful.

  • Pros: 

    Easy to use, accurate, modern, fast.

    Cons: 

    none

    I logged into PH after maybe 2 years out just to upvote this thing. The article about why you shouldn't wireframe in sketch is spot on true and the product is delivering 100% of what it promises. Nice!

    Pros: 

    So easy and fun to use

    Cons: 

    None

    Flowcharts, wireframes, and now sticky notes.

    What more could you need for kickstarting a design?
