About

Unlock your creativity - Whimsical is the best way to collaborate on your ideas visually. Create beautiful flowcharts and wireframes with speed and ease. Focus on your idea not design, Whimsical will make sure it looks good.

Would you recommend this product?

I've been using this for a few months and LOVE it. It gives me all the tools I need to make beautiful diagrams, flow charts, wireframes, funnels, user flows, etc. Everything looks great by default (including the icons) and it stays out of my way so I can focus on how best to convey my ideas. I've tried Sketch, Balsamiq, Lucidchart, Powerpoint, Google Slides, and Omnigraffle in the past but this is so much faster and looks 10x better when I paste the result into a doc or presentation. Just try it, you will love it.

Pros:

So good. Just try it.

Cons:

Makes me wish all my other software was this good.

I've been looking for a tool like this for awhile that combines the ability to flowchart while also commenting on images and imported links. Everything works super quickly and the infinite whiteboard concept is slick.

Pros:

Simple interface that's quick to learn and easy to use, ability to import screenshots of links

Cons:

None so far

Flow chart editor is so refreshingly simple and intuitive. In just few minutes I was able to chart out a complex flow _and_ share it with my team. 🎉

Pros:

Flow chart editor is beautifully executed 💯

Cons:

None so far!

I used whimsical to create enormous, product flowcharts and it was a wondrous experience. Never before had I such a good, uninterrupted flow when creating something so complicated.

Pros:

Simple as hell, well designed, fast, verstaile

Cons:

None so far

Used it to create a flow for an app. I must say I am impressed!

Pros:

Easy to use, no clutter, works out of the box, no learning curve. Plus, looks pretty.

Cons:

None

I have tried many (many) different tools likes this, and I don't what it is, but it just feels right .. every behaviour is the expected one, the keyboard integration is just great.

Pros:

Just a magical tool. Everyone action feels right, every default is correct, just the right amount of features for wireframing .. amazing.

Cons:

No direct integration with Invision for the moment

I've been looking for a solid mindmapping/flowchart software since 2013! Download and tried almost everything (Sketch, Photoshop, Illustrator, Figma, miscellaneous apps for mindmapping, etc.) this is the perfect solution I was always in search of. I wish I could say I built it myself!

Pros:

Simplicity.

Cons:

Color selection is limited and you can't change the color of shape outlines.

Multidisciplinary designer

Where have you been all my life!

Pros:

Sexy, intuitive, straight forward and easy to use.

Cons:

Didn't discover anything so far.

I am not exactly sure what the difference between the diagramming and mind mapping tool will be for but I am excited to find out!

Pros:

Simple, clean interface that is easy to use. It's like Canva for visual workspace organization.

Cons:

Sign up integration with social media networks

VisualSitemaps / Design2Dev / PoPTeam.io

really well executed on the UX, especially moving around the canvas and quickly generating and connecting things. Well Done.

Pros:

Intuitive and Minimal and Fast as shit.

Cons:

a little buggy on the UX of stickies features. Sometimes it triggers editing modal, when i just want to do other things instead.

Clean ui, easy to use, but the product name is too hard to remember.
Whimsical is incredibly useful, and one of the most robust, beautiful, and intuitive-to-learn tools I have used in recent times. A huge thanks to the team for the education discount!

I didn't know what whimsical was until a year ago - and I wish I had found it sooner. LOVE how collaborative this tool is and I was obsessed with making "mind maps" as a kid. Happy that I can make them easily now in my workspace too (it's a game changer)
