I RECOMMEND IT TO YOU! IT IS EXCELLENT FOR YOUR PROPOSALS.

Give this software a chance, you will be surprised.

If I had to choose between other software and HotGloo I would continue to use it, I share with those who are looking for this type of software that if they are not sure to use it, they will use the trial version, they will see or compare with others, if they like, pay the full version that it will surely be more helpful and will have more tools to implement Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

It has very low learning curve for a professional design page, its cost is very elevated, in planning processes do not interact with test models easily, design and share ready-made prototypes of HotGloo, opening the application on the mobile is difficult since its interface is not very compatible and makes it have errors when designing Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Hotgloo is an excellent platform that offers you a free version and a panel of complete tools for the online and interactive creation of schemes and prototypes. It has a very explicit and intuitive interface, it is also adaptable to any device providing the same characteristics. It is affordable Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

It could expand the free version since the offered account only has 7 days and it is difficult to adapt to initiates, since Hotgloo is created primarily for the use of experts. The interface could be improved to create better user experiences Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It is a very useful tool for making prototype designs with excellent presentation for short term, they can consult and compare is a very good software which you will not regret, It is advisable to use the free version, adapt, learn to use to the fullest all its capabilities and then be necessary to pay the premium version in any of your presentations Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

There are many positive characteristics that this software possesses, such as that we can adapt it to any device, being able to collaborate with the work team from any place outside the company, in mobile devices it is completely operative and functional. The tool panel is very complete for its functions to end, has a very simple and explicit interface. It contains an effective online support and offers a free version that you can use to perform your tests and even continue to develop knowledge with the tutorials that we can find from Hotgloo Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The Hotgloo interface could be improved, they should extend the free version since it is only 7 days and adapt to it becomes a bit complicated in such a short time, especially for people who want to develop new ideas and have no experience in this type of software, not to mention that the software is full of options that could become overwhelming and confuse new users even more Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I have facilitated and strengthened teamwork, it is a very useful tool because with it I have made designs in a short term, we saved time and we invested in other projects being notorious in the growth of the company Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Using this software you will notice good results although if you are new to this type of software, you should be fed with information and knowledge to be able to develop it in a simple way, for this it offers tutorials and seminars as well as a free version. You can share ideas to work in a team without neglecting the work. There are many qualities offered so you will not regret putting it into practice Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

I liked it because of its low cost and ease of use, plus it can be used with any device, thus being able to collaborate with the people with whom I develop the project from your tablet to my computer, always yielding good results. It is worth mentioning that HotGloo includes seminars and web tutorials that are of great help to continue developing the knowledge that we are going to put into practice Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

There are several things but one of the least I like is that there are times when it is difficult to distinguish the interface for PC and mobile devices but it may be because of the templates used, the free version should have more time because I do not know if it is so short time we can use all the tools contained in the software and make tests with which we note the results Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I confess that if I were to choose between other software and HotGloo would continue to use it, I share with those who are looking for this type of software that if they are not sure to use it, use the trial version, see or compare with others, if they like it then pay the full version that will surely be of more help and you will have more tools to put into practice Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The problem to solve is the work in conjunction with the team that I am developing the project, we make everything work better to reach a specific goal together with the help of HotGloo. The applications and web tests of wireframing with collaborative design, allows us to develop ideas that we process and test to look for positive results Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Response from Wolf Becvar of HotGloo

We live and breathe UX that's why we invest a tremendous amount of time to make our products as simple to use as possible. We are a professional tool that has a lot of very complex features built in - that's why we are charging money for it - it's a pro tool in the first place but we also have the high ambitious goal to build the most complex features as easy to use as possible. Seems as if you are one of the few customers we had that wasn't happy with the usability of our app. Sorry to hear that!

I have been wireframing with HotGloo for 6 years. There are constant product improvements. This means that as a user, there are continual software updates based on user feedback. Over the years, countless new features have been added, I've even seen 3 of my recommendations added. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

The ease of use, and how cheap it was--perfect for someone running a small business who needs it for a one time project, or to use it to try out and test. Very user friendly! Included tutorials and webinars, which was very helpful.

Also love that it worked with any device, so I could collaborate with the people I was working on the project with from their tablet to my laptop. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Since it's a newer technology, I think it still has some kinks to work out. I used to based on a quick google search and based on price. Looking forward to seeing how it develops over time. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
