Listing here a few new tools that I discovered in the past months and I’ve been using on a daily basis in a range of different projects.
Whimsical is a combination of Lucida Charts, Balsamiq and Mural. However, it seems to be very focused on micro-interactions, which makes it really pleasant and easy to use. The overall performance also feels superior from the other tools, at least in the web version. I haven’t used the wireframe feature, but for creating diagrams and flow charts Whimsical is my go-to tool now.
Boords is a nice little app to help creating storyboards. Despite the fact that is seems to be more focused on the creative types who works with animation and storytelling I found it quite nice to use for creation UX storyboards that looks very professional and it is super easy to use.
Similar to Heap Analytics and other data analytics tools, Amplitude offers many possibilities to analyse the data and make it part of the design process. Being that to conduct and AB Test or just investigate the use of an existing feature it’s quite easy to create amazing charts and dashboards for all of your projects.
