"Webflow really matters!"

What do you like best?

Something that I really love from Webflow is its intuitive and dynamic workflow. All the tools are there for giving you the right purpose for building websites from scratch or if you already have the coding for implementing a whole gamma of websites with your own digital signature and getting even more clients. Also, the features from this software allow to its users to understand and realise how easy it is the whole process of creating and coding websites and even you can manage how websites are being built by your crew and giving them feedback in real time.

What do you dislike?

Webflow doesn't allow to integrate your own domains for new websites and if you have a fully functional website it's mandatory to use software's domains in order to give users full access to the content which is awful to realise. Also, it's implementation price is very expensive, even though is the cheapest client for web design and web creation at this moment, once you're giving instruction for implementing the solution on your department it could be very expensive, but the revenues are awesome.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Highly recommended solution for those who are looking to have tons of templates and website models for showing their clients how the whole process of creating websites for their final use are being handled. Also, this software is highly intended for companies that are hosting websites across their customers and third-party clients as well.

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

It was very awesome to discover that Webflow can be implemented in almost every single OS without having to install anything else, and almost every kind of computer or workstations with certain specifications can have this solution as well. Also, my team is very grateful for having even more templates and colors to combine and to implement across the websites that are being hosted and created for giving customers a massive feedback of how things are getting done and how clients want their content to be shown on the website as well.

What Web Design solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"advanced website design "

What do you like best?

webflow is a surprising platform, since it is possible to create highly professional websites and websites, since it offers the possibility to make web pages without knowing HTML, CSS and JavaScrip, it is an efficient way to create pages by visually manipulating tools available to make a complete page, contains general design tools, you can select the type of typography of a vast collection of sources, has a wide range of images for web design that include background images and types of gradient so that your pages are visually great, also has a wide range of animations that can be used in a very versatile to place them as desired by the designer, these are without doubt the most remarkable features but webflows is much more since it has tools to make full pages of electronic commerce with all the necessary functions for direct payments and credits.

What do you dislike?

I have had problems when I am ready to place some objects on the canvas, a situation that happens to me infrequently, however it is annoying since I have to reload the page and do it again until finally the changes are saved.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

recommended since it is a platform that helps you eliminate the dependence of third parties, and in order to have from the same company an instance of creation and design of web pages, I must say that it takes some time to achieve all webflow functionalities, however with some discipline it is possible to create highly professional websites and websites. They have a free trial period, which is a good opportunity to try and convince yourself of their benefits.

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

Previously, we had hired a small web design service company, which worked well for us. After a while, the design was the same, and the creativity was questionable, which is why we turned to Web Flow, since then I have made several web pages myself without resorting to advanced programming languages ​​and web design, since the platform has everything you need to make innovative pages, beautiful and colorful just by using the tools you have.

"A great solution for bringing your design to life"

What do you like best?

I love being able to take a wireframe to a fully functional website with no knowledge of code.

The software itself is robust and you may feel intimidated but thats where the Webflow acadamy comes into play! It teahces you everything you know in a smart sequence that helps you get familiar with the interface as you go. Plus the tutorials are actually amusing to watch because there is subtle humor injected into them all that I appreciate.

What do you dislike?

My Webflow instance often crashes on me when I start to change a lot of specs one after another in a short period of time. I can tell when its about to crash because the whole thing gets very sluggish right before it does. The good thing though is I have never really lost anything I am working on as the auto save in Webflow works well.

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

The process of going back and forth with a developer to program a website can be exhausting, and that's after you put in the time to find a good one that understands your needs and has the required skill set. This solves that problem.

"Professional web design in the cloud."

What do you like best?

Something that I love about this service, is the predesigned templates that it contains, the truth is they are very professional, and they comply with all the necessary standards to create professional and amazing websites, this tool, despite running on the web, has all the necessary tools that a web designer needs, in this application as with any other web design software, you can start the design from scratch, and have all the necessary tools, to give all the desired characteristics to the design in which is working, the workspace I like very much, I feel very comfortable working on this application, I feel that I have all the tools at my disposal, and I can find them more easily, which helps me to make my designs more easily.

What do you dislike?

To adapt to this system of work, it needs a little time, to go from the applications of web design, that we were accustomed in past years, to this type of systems is a bit difficult, and more about the old designers, that we were already comfortable in another type of development platforms, so the learning curve in this type of web tools, can take a little time.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

is an application that has all the necessary features, to make all kinds of web designs, templates that are on the site, are very professional, beautiful, and help you make the work easier, fully editable, an environment of very complete design in the cloud.

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

This type of tools, not only decrease the time of work in web development, in addition to this, you should not invest so much money on super desktop computers, since everything is really done on the web, and you only need a good equipment so that the navigation is perfect, but the rest, are already unnecessary expenses, so you only have to pay the monthly fee for handling the application, and you should not think every year about the renewal of computers, this seems like something incredible, for people and small businesses.

"Webflow is relatively new in its use, to create and design websites, using templates."

What do you like best?

Advantages: 1) Intuitive in its use, 2) Responsive or adaptable to any device (PC, mobile, ...) or OS, 3) Very complete control panel and that allows an excellent personalization making it extremely pleasant, in its two views available, the simple and the advanced, 4) Within that same panel you can use all the functions and features you have and 5) Easily customize all your elements (size of letters and images, etc.) to adjust your website.

What do you dislike?

Disadvantages: 1) Free plan is limited, especially to edit CSS and HTML, to personalize you need to have the plan paid, 2) It is not for novice users, 3) The templates, for the most part, are very simple and 4) Despite that its load is not heavy, it has templates that take longer than others to load.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It is recommended to have intermediate knowledge in the use of web design tools.

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

Webflow is a very easy to use tool, mainly because its use or free profile is online, besides it has a work control view quite nice to look at and it is not so heavy to load its predefined templates.

"Crea sitios web geniales con webflow profecionalmente"

What do you like best?

Son totalmente compatibles con HTML5 y CSS y crean código limpio en comparación con los competidores. Puedes hacer cualquier cosa que desees, rápida y fácilmente. Arrastra los componentes a la página, configura las propiedades y ve inmediatamente el efecto. Tienen animación CSS, grilla, y paralaje. Tienen un backend de base de datos, por ejemplo para almacenar productos para el comercio electrónico. También me gusta que si está creando sitios web para su cliente, facturarán automáticamente a su cliente y le agregarán sus ganancias. Tienen un excelente y divertido video entrenamiento y responden rápidamente a las preguntas. Permiten exportar HTML y CSS, si tiene el tipo de cuenta correcto, no la cuenta de gama baja. Tienen hosting rápido. Realmente me gusta que este software sea utilizable por un principiante avanzado que entiende html y css básico, pero está dirigido a un profesional, con características como flex y paralaje, y es fácil de usar. Una de las características realmente excelentes de Webflow es que responde y al hacer clic en los iconos de escritorio, tableta y teléfono en la parte superior de la pantalla, puede ver cómo se verá la página. No solo eso, sino que puede modificar lo que se mostrará para cada dispositivo, USTED decide qué programas se muestra y dónde para cada tipo de dispositivo. Increíble, mucho mejor que los competidores en esta área. Dependiendo del tipo de cuenta, puede tener múltiples proyectos y páginas dentro de cada proyecto. Realmente está configurado para que un profesional sea productivo. Webflow tiene una API REST para modificar los productos almacenados en su base de datos. pero puede modificar lo que se mostrará para cada dispositivo, USTED decide qué programas y dónde para cada tipo de dispositivo.

Realmente está configurado para que un profesional sea productivo. Webflow tiene una API REST para modificar los productos almacenados en su base de datos.

What do you dislike?

Lo que no me gusta de Webflow es que, para la mayoría de las personas, tendrá que alojar con ellos. Si está utilizando su base de datos back-end para productos, no puede moverla a otra plataforma de alojamiento, excepto como un archivo delimitado por comas CSV. Clunky Si configura formularios no puede exportarlos. Si todo lo que está usando es el estándar de HTML5 y CSS, entonces está bien, y se exportará, pero no creo que sea típico de la mayoría de los usuarios. Me he dado cuenta de que parece que reinician sus servidores aproximadamente a diario. Esto es bueno porque no he experimentado problemas y mal porque el alojamiento y el diseño no están disponibles por unos minutos. Otras compañías parecen lograr esto sin caer en absoluto, y creo que deberían hacerlo también. Aunque Webflow realiza el alojamiento para sitios web creados con Webflow y utiliza el alojamiento de Amazon, Esta no es una plataforma de alojamiento típica, es solo para sitios web creados con Webflow. No puede importar sitios web desde otras plataformas de alojamiento. Aunque están probando beta un carrito de compras para el comercio electrónico, en este momento tendrá que conectarse a un carrito de compras de terceros. Compruebe si este sigue siendo el caso.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Le recomiendo que pruebe Webflow si no le importa alojar con Webflow. Si desea utilizar una base de datos, use Webflow para la creación de prototipos y luego expórtela a alguna otra plataforma de alojamiento que utilice una base de datos estándar.

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

Este producto es excelente si está diseñando sitios web de alta calidad con características de alta calidad como responsive, flex y paralaje, por lo que es ideal para desarrolladores de sitios web y no profesionales avanzados. Ya que no me gusta que me obliguen a usar su alojamiento o exportar datos como CSV, lo uso como una herramienta de creación de prototipos de alta calidad: haga todo el HTML5 y CSS en Webflow, de manera rápida y fácil, luego exporte a una plataforma de alojamiento que tenga una base de datos estándar de back-end. Alternativamente, cuando solo estoy usando una página web estática, entonces la alojo con Webflow ya que puedo moverla en cualquier momento.

"It is an essential and very powerful tool."

What do you like best?

You can build interfaces very quickly. The tools are very powerful and everything works very well. No need to be writing code or be an expert developer.

What do you dislike?

So far I have not had problems with Webflow. It is possible that something can happen but for the moment everything is going well.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

This software is highly recommended and I have been able to have truly professional results. I have also learned a lot about web development thanks to Webflow. I love.

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

It is very useful to create interfaces, prototypes and even fully functional web pages, everything depends on the type of project. In my case I'm a graphic designer and Webflow has helped me create the pages according to my ideas. This makes the developers have less workload and focus on the functionality of the web project.

"Webflow makes designing beautiful websites, quick and easy, especially for professionals"

What do you like best?

They are fully HTML5 and CSS compliant and create clean code compared to competitors. You can do anything you desire, quickly and easily. You drag components onto the page, set properties, and immediately see the effect. They have CSS animation, grid, and parallax. They have a database backend, for example for storing products for e-commerce. I also like that if you are building websites for your client, they will automatically bill your client and add your profit. They have excellent and fun video training and respond fast to questions. They permit exporting the HTML and CSS, if you have the right account type, not the low end account. They have fast hosting. I really like that this software is usable by an advanced beginner that understands basic html and css, but is aimed at a professional, with features like flex and parallax, and is easy to use. One of the really great features of Webflow is that it is responsive and by clicking the icons for desktop, tablet, and phone at the top of the screen you can see what the page will look like. Not only that, but you can modify what will show for each device, YOU decide what shows and where for each device type. Amazing, much better than competitors in this area. Depending on the account type, you can have multiple projects, and pages within each project. It really is set up for a professional to be productive. Webflow has a REST API to modify products stored in their database.

What do you dislike?

What I dislike about Webflow is that, for most people, you will need to host with them. If you are using their backend database for products, then you can't move it to another hosting platform except as a CSV comma delimited file. Clunky. If you set up forms you can't export them. If all that you are using is the standard HTML5 and CSS then you're ok, and it will export, but I wouldn't think that is typical of most users. I have noticed that it appears they reboot their servers approximately daily. This is good because I haven't experienced problems, and bad because the hosting and design is not available for a few minutes. Other companies seem to accomplish this without going down at all, and I think they should, too. Althought Webflow does hosting for websites created with Webflow, and uses Amazon hosting, this is not a typical hosting platform, it is only for websites created with Webflow. You cannot import websites from other hosting platforms. Although they are beta testing a shopping cart for ecommerce, at this time you will have to connect to a third party shopping cart. Check to see if this is still the case.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I highly recommend that you try Webflow if you don't mind hosting with Webflow. If you want to use a database then use Webflow for prototyping and then export it to some other hosting platform that uses a standard database.

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

This product is superb if you are designing top quality websites with high-end features like responsive, flex, and parallax, so it is great for website developers and advanced non-professionals. Since I do not like being required to use their hosting or exporting data as CSV, I use it as a high-end prototyping tool - do all the HTML5 and CSS in Webflow, fast and easy, then export it to a hosting platform that has a standard database back end. Alternatively, when I'm just using a static webpage, then I host it with Webflow since I can move it anytime.

"If you've got the cash, this is the WYSIWYG web creator you've been looking for"

What do you like best?

It's easy to create exactly what you want and the interface is intuitive. I built my own site from scratch without resorting to a template. I tried to accomplish the same in a variety of places and couldn't pull it off.

What do you dislike?

The pricing is a little steep. You get hit from two directions. For the hosting and the site... plus there's deeper levels to each. It would have been nice to have them rolled together into a more attractive price tag like most of the competition.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Make sure you understand the pricing before you commit. It's not inexpensive to maintain a site on this platform.

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

Get a site up for my freelance work and attract new customers by showcasing my portfolio. I've been working consistently, so I'd say that it got the jib done.

"Easy & Beautiful Designing"

What do you like best?

i love how the interface on Webflow has a similar layout to Adobe. For graphic designers looking to expand into web services, this is really useful. I also love the customization options Webflow supports in addition the the templates and suggestions it provides

What do you dislike?

it may be confusing at first if you are used to other programs, such as wordpress. However, all web programs like these have learning curves and once you’re fluent with Webflow it comes naturally and your work is more efficient

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Try it! Especially if you’re looking to add web design services but you aren’t super code savvy OR if you are avoiding wordpress- this is a great alternative

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

Webflow makes designing, building and launching websites for myself and for clients a breeze. Unlike Squarspace and similar programs, Webflow supports a completely custom look and elevated design features

"Made for designers needing custom portfolio sites with limited coding experience"

What do you like best?

It has a lot of cool built in functions and animations that takes some tinkering to get used to, especially for those with limited front end coding experience. If the page you want to make doesn't fit neatly in a template, is fairly straightforward gallery-esque, and does not require data from users, it is a great tool.

What do you dislike?

When you pay to send a project live, it only sends the specified project live. It is not a license that says "you can have 1 page live." So, if you have multiple projects to explore different ideas and want to switch which one is live, you have to contact customer service and explain your situation.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

As someone that doesn't code, I mostly found it useful to make gallery-esque sites with minimal interactions.

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

I made my own design portfolio site and it helped me get hired at my current position.

"Content Marketer"

What do you like best?

Easy and intuitive UI for web development. Anyone can pick it up and figure it out, and as long as you have basic understanding of web design you can pull together a website in a few days.

What do you dislike?

It's difficult to upload custom code, and the templates and modules they provide can screw up pretty easily. Though it's easy to do simple, clean designs, anything extra requires some html knowledge for tweaking. For example, padding gets screwed up pretty quickly, as do images that aren't properly sized.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Works well if you have limited resources, but don't expect to reinvent the wheel with webflow. In almost all cases, you should just get a dev, even on the webflow platform

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

Our old website went down due to a series of errors built into old code. We needed a temporary solution in lieu of a brand new website. Using webflow, we put up a new marketing site within a few days that, while not perfect, was more than an adequate solution to the fire drill.

"Webflow provides the best web creation experience out there."

What do you like best?

Webflow is by far the best web creator and editor in the market. It has the capability of launch, build and design responsive and reliable websites while you're writing and creating semantic codes for yourself. Also it comes with great features which makes it easy to use and user-friendly at the same time. For designers, this tool will experience the power of using CSS; HTML and JavaScript with a 100% of visual canvas; the interactions are awesome, you can add motion based on your mouse movement, multi-step animations and parallax scrolling effects. For CMS and Ecommerce is also a great asset, because it gives you the entire control of the online stores that you're administrating and defines for you the content structure that you're building with real data.

What do you dislike?

Webflow has given me certain problems when I'm creating websites like for example: placing objects on the canvas is really annoying, and I have to refresh multiple times until the workflow finally takes the changes for granted and ready to go. Other thing that also bothers me is it's pricing, implementation price is really expensive and per license the purchasing price isn't that attractive. And finally, the general problem is that the tool suddenly crashes and the changes and recent modifications or new ideas didn't save properly making it really annoying to have.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

My recommendation is to check your investment capital before you consider to invest and purchase the product, it could be very expensive for what you're actually looking forward to get and to work with but it's totally worth it. Highly recommended product for web design and web management as well.

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

Trying to find a web developer who works with Webflow was really hard and the process was difficult, nearly impossible. And that was because we were looking to migrate our previous web development and creating assets from our previous provider to Webflow and we only find two people, and they taught the rest of my team and now we are more than capable to achieve and complete clients' requirements in order to give them better feedback with real data and that our renevues grow a lot.

"customizable and customizable professional templates"

What do you like best?

since I use it I can say that it seems very easy to use, although you need to practice and be able to get the most out of it, from the first day I can say that the platform seemed intuitive, and the best thing is that I can visualize the session in webflow from the pc or my mobile device, from the same platform I can make use of all the tools of creation of the page, which I must emphasize that it contains many ways to create and place objects, images, videos, and other features to make a professional page which are compatible with HTML5 which expands the possibilities of the website.

What do you dislike?

I must host the domain that I want to use with webflow, which seems to me an aspect against, because if I have a third-party domain, I have not seen how to migrate it, since I currently have two domains that I can not use with webflow Since they were acquired through another company, I regret that I can not use them and be able to take advantage of it with WebFlow

Recommendations to others considering the product:

webflow is unique, make vibrant designs is very easy with webflows the number of modifiable templates is enough and the best thing is that they are customizable, they can even be modified to taste, and since the quality of the work done is highly professional, I recommend it, I have I used other services from other providers of that service and it is simply by far, so that the new users I invite you to use this service that has a free trial mode to know all its functions, insurance will be of your choice.

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

the first time I used Webflow I was really surprised, having such a colorful and creative platform for creating websites is certainly a great benefit, we were able to make websites very quickly and the great advantage is that it is not necessary know HTML code and language, I must emphasize that with webflow it is much easier to place the animations to the objects available on the platform, and has tutorials that help you in the learning process and get the most out of the webflow, we had tired of those monotonous and gray websites that several developers had made, now I myself in the office can plan and develop better websites with interactive and vibrant capabilities.

"Visual Designer"

What do you like best?

I like how I can design in Webflow and easily export the code to collaborate with a front-end developer. It's also very user-friendly.

What do you dislike?

I dislike how it's not easy to optimize your page speed. Compressing images can only do so much. I get leverage browser caching and render-blocking JavaScript issues. Hopefully the Webflow team will work on this since many are also having the same problem.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

There's a bit of a learning curve, but once you get into the software it's pretty easy to learn. I've used other tools that are similar to this, but Webflow is by far the best. The Webflow team is constantly working on updates and there's even a community wishlist. So the tool is bound to keep improving. I'm just hoping that they work on page optimization soon.

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

This is a good solution for quick web development. It saves time and the websites look good.

"Webflow Review "

What do you like best?

Webflow has many great qualities and it is hard to narrow them down. First it has a professional quality real-time web design tool that allows for mobile friendliness. This allows you to create a clean, exportable code. Webflow also has dozens of templates, both free and paid but also has the option to use a wireframe or start from a blank canvas. Finally, it has a FREE built-in SSL certificate, which usually costs $50-$100 annually, which helps to ensure compliance with current web safety standards immediately upon use.

What do you dislike?

There are several pros and only a few cons to using Webflow. The first is that there is a rather steep learning curve if you are new to web development. Next, Webflow's website builder still has some issues with browsers such as Firefox and Microsoft Edge. Finally, because the e-commerce kit is still in beta, their online shop capabilities still need fine tuning.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

In comparison to others, Webflow is one of the better products out there. However, if you are new to web design, WordPress might be a better place to start.

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

We use our website to give our parents and potential students essential information, in addition to promoting the great work of our students.

The thing I like best is Webflow easiness of use, because in order to make a website and have it live, online, in short period of time, I just need to pick out one of the themes that Webflow uses, and then I only have to change a few things (such as text, images, logo, etc) so that the website really suits my style. After this, it's only a matter of saving it and then make it go live. With all of these features, I must say that Webflow makes any person a web design guru.

What do you dislike?

One thing that turns me off is the limited number of themes., and what I mean with this is that Webflow doesn't offer a big arsenal of templates ready to be used, and I think that most of the templates that Webflow offers are more for very serious (and a bit dull) firms rather than fresh and original enterprises. If Webflow added a little bit more variety, then it would absolutely earn 10+ stars from me (I hope they take my suggestion into account).

Recommendations to others considering the product:

This software is for people who wish to have a professional and serious look. Webflow offers templates son that you can have your website ready quickly. But you won't find any fresh or very creative sites.

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

The greatest benefit I've realized thanks to Weblow is let my customers have a professional and unique presence on the internet. I achieve this by making beautiful and professional websites for them, in a short period of time, so that they can start promoting their services and products online.

"Better than WordPress"

What do you like best?

This is the perfect tool for front end developers or full stacks that want to save time.

What do you dislike?

Could use a delete image asset function that allows users to delete more than one image at a time.

I wish they had a larger team to work on their wishlist faster. There are some features that the Webflow community wants but its only a matter of time before they launch everything. Big things in 2019.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Try it out. If you can use Adobe you can use Webflow.

This isn't Wordpress, Wix or Squarespace; it's better depending on who you are. This is developer friendly

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

I'm helping small business owners launch their digital presence quickly. This helps them validate with their market and reach new audiences.

"Wonderful tool for web development"

What do you like best?

Excellent service, can’t believe I’ve beeen working without it.

What do you dislike?

I just wish there was a desktop app. I hate that I can’t work on my sites offline. Makes for remote working sometimes difficult.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Right now, the pricing model is a bit weird. You can’t use the service unless you pay a subscription fee, and you’re kinda stuck paying for the entire service (including hosting). If you don’t want to pay for that, you might want to pass. I have a app only version of the subscription plan that I had before the changes, so I was grandfathered in. That made it worth it to me.

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

I can offer one stop shop services for all web and UI designs. My front end work is looking very clean and smooth. My knowledge of CSS and HTML has grown simply from using the service as well.

"Webflow lets you focus on the design instead of code development"

What do you like best?

Webflow has an intuitive editing interface that comes with web components and widgets that are easy to use out of the box and/or can be customized to your liking. It's great that you can publish the site immediately after finishing designing.

What do you dislike?

I hit stumbling blocks with Webflow's functionality and limitations, sometimes while I'm working on it, the page gets a little bit laggy and slows up, usually, it resolves itself if I refresh the page or exit and go back into it. I do find that, at times, though with their frequent improvements I'm hopeful that many of these challenges will be resolved.

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

Webflow it's a platform that essentially allows designers to write code in a visual way. As a designer, my coding skills are limited, so it allows me to not depend on developers to continue with the process, which at the end lowers the cost for clients, as well as lowers my production cost.

"Webflow allowed me to drop out of college & make a living working for folks all over the world."

What do you like best?

You don't have to know how to write code to use Webflow. I left college knowing almost nothing about HTML, CSS, and javascript. 2 years later I've built dozens of sites for huge companies in the UK, Sweden, Finland, and parts of the US.

What do you dislike?

A few features aren't too user-friendly, but they are powerful. That said, the Webflow staff are super transparent, and it's clear they are making efforts to improve their product all the time.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

This is the #1 solution for building static websites. If you need a super complex web app, you'll need developers or another product to manage the backend.

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

I own a web app called Formatically. Every user-facing screen is built in Webflow. No Webflow, no Formatically.

"Fun and modern"

What do you like best?

It really is a modern web designing program. It is efficient in customization of forms, with the use of drop downs, or bullets. Also this program is very straight forward and easy to use. They emphasize making sure that the website will be able to be viewed properly on mobiles, so I would say their mobile optimization is something I see they focus on more than their competitors. Another great thing is that they aren't inflexible with you using any font you want, I was able to download and input some of my favorite fonts.

What do you dislike?

That it is all code-free, I feel like that can be a disadvantage to those who want to customize their site a little bit more than what their templates offer. I was slightly disappointed about that because I love coding and with this it's almost like using other online sites that just have customizable templates.

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

Can get websites up faster than ever with this program as compared to coding programs. So there are pros and cons of their template only vs other programs.

"Endless possibilities in a complex but comprehensive interface"

What do you like best?

Webflow is a website building platform that gives you complete control of every aspect of your website without needing to understand any coding. Their basic templates are a great place to begin building your business or personal website, but the ability to look at other people's websites and the structure of it in the Webflow interface is a huge tool to making a website you can be proud of.

In a mobile age, perhaps the most powerful feature of Webflow is the ability to build a website not just for desktop, but also for tablet and mobile, giving you complete control again over how the website works on any screen. Easily change the dimensions of the window just by dragging the width and see how the website adapts. You can make changes to your site on desktop, tablet, mobile landscape and mobile portrait, so that you can be sure your online presence is professional from every angle.

Webflow has made tutorials of virtually everything you could do on the platform while also adding humor and entertainment, so learning how to use it can be done at home.

What do you dislike?

The interface, while giving you control over everything, is also very complex. Plan on spending some time learning how the properties interact with each other. There are great tutorials on YouTube to help you.

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

I use website for a portfolio website. For my purposes, the CMS feature makes showcasing my work super easy. I can input information like a project's client, description, image, completion date, and other things once, and it will carry over to other pages on the site. So if I need to make a change, I can update it in one place and the platform changes it everywhere. Super rad.

"Easy Design with an outlook to Code"

What do you like best?

That you can see what the layout will look like in HTML & CSS when you are finished. The animation details you can apply to your website. You can also examine your finished product in different screen formats, such as mobile and tablet . There are plenty of tutorials to look at while you work.

What do you dislike?

It's not so easy to use as Wix.com. I wish you can use the website without having to result in enlarging the screen.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Try it out and see if you like it. It gives the full view of what is to look like on your web page. The tutorials are good for beginners when using the website.

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

When I need to give the developer my designs they can easily look at the code and rewrite it without the hassle of them wasting time trying to plug in everything.

"Fast, easy and of quality? Webflow is for you."

What do you like best?

I like the ease of use with Webflow, you can have it online quickly. You should only use one of the Webflow themes. You must make adjustments to the theme so that the website really suits my way.

After this, it's just a matter of saving and shooting the server. With the above described we could say that the web design was so simple with Webflow.

I love the Webflow design interface, totally intuitive and really amazing components. Easy to handle in every way. The immediate form of publication in the design is enabled. A marvel.

What do you dislike?

There are very few templates that Webflow makes available to the creative mind and small or rigid companies. Must include templates or themes for travel agencies, photographers, video gamers and more. I would give 10 stars to 100 if it includes the necessary narration templates.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

To everything you want to be part of the web and quickly create your professional image at the company level and visually more rigid. Not recommended for video game designers and freelancers.

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

Users have had their presence on the web quickly and efficiently thanks to Webflow. Knowing that clients are not an easy task to use Webflow and do my job.

"Webflow for the Designer (and non-coder)"

What do you like best?

I love that Webflow allows the user to create clean, well-organized, interactive web pages even if the user's knowledge of coding and programming is limited. Webflow allows for layout-driven pages to be built without knowledge of the code, but also gives the abilityto edit the code itself for those with a stronger understanding. Also, Webflow has very good instructional videos to help users learn and understand the software.

What do you dislike?

Webflow and be difficult to learn and understand at first, and isn't always user friendly. Although they have instructional database videos, the software is difficult to learn without watching some of them. Also, there are very few things that can be done without a paid account.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Watch as many Webflow tutorials as you can when you first set up your account to ensure that you understand how the software works.

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

Integrating different programs such as Shopify, PayPal, etc, can be challenging. Although it is possible, it isn't clearly explained.

"The future of web design is already here"

What do you like best?

Webflow is the solution that was sorely missing from the web design panorama: a truly graphical way of designing responsive websites, solid and that just works. It has almost all the building blocks needed, together with the best practices already implemented such as reusable assets, animation helpers, etc. It also has an host of advanced functions that can help you build data-driven and e-commerce websites.

What do you dislike?

The only thing I would prefer over the current approach would be an offline, desktop application, that would save all the data on the computer and then sync with a cloud platform whenever possible. Working only in the browser still makes me a bit unsure at times, and I fear of losing my work every now and then.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If the browser only approach doesn't scare you, Webflow is a truly innovative, solid and useful alternative to the usual web design tools, one that could also revolutionise the way you work.

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

Before Webflow, we had to build Photoshop mockups, then write code and design CSS constantly checking the browser to see if the design was coming out as intended, not to speak about checking responsiveness on the various screen sizes. Webflow is WYSIWYG done right: we can skip the Photoshop part and see what is coming out of our design as we build it, for any screen We definitely plan on using it much more in the future!

"Great for Designers who aren't that great at code."

What do you like best?

The best thing about web flow is how easy it is to use. The interface is great for designers who aren't that knowledgable with code. It speeds up the process of designing a website site by negating the need to mockup in ps and then build it. You can go from wire framing to building it right away. If you need to make any easy edits, you can do so easily by being able to visually see it, rather than writing the code and then seeing how it looks.

What do you dislike?

So far I have not experienced anything I disliked. They did just launch web flow university with a lot of tutorials; I would like to watch one where the can explain more about the effects you can apply to a site. That would be helpful.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Utilize their video tutorials and learn how to use each tool.

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

I currently work for a company that owns several business that need branding for all of them. Since I am a one person department for marketing and creative and I need to develop websites for all of the businesses, using web flow has helped tremendously. I'm a designer first, and I am teaching myself code, and this is the best of both worlds. It expedites the process, makes it easy to to edit and create new content, as well stops the expense of having to outsource this work to someone else.

"Perfect for building responsive websites."

What do you like best?

It has many useful tools such as exporting code, sections, columns, texts, images and much more. The administration panel is very complete and you can also customize the CSS code.

What do you dislike?

It is not a flexible CMS, it is difficult to make a personalized code or make large visual changes that are outside the chosen theme.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I recommend it especially for the creation of small informative websites. Webflow saves a lot of time and that allows anyone to make a web page without programming knowledge.

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

It is ideal for any development team that is responsible for making simple web pages because it does not need the programming of large blocks of codes, everything is pre-established just to change the parameters to our liking, place the information and we will get a new web page in a matter of minutes.

"Web Building Product for Freelancers"

What do you like best?

I learnt about this product from Ran Segall and he provides very fun and simple tutorials online on how to design websites for UIUX Designers on Webflow instead of Sketch or Figma or Invision Studio. The product allows for simple coding to be done so it can be shipped live very quickly. Definitely a great tool for Freelance UIUX Designers working with Startups or Businesses.

What do you dislike?

Perhaps for freelancers Webflow is a better choice but for designers working in a company that has already established Sketch as a tool for designing across all departments, it would not be useful to make the switch. It would not be feasible simply to switch from Sketch to Webflow at this point.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Great if you are a freelancer and would need to develop the website as well for your client.

"Top App for WebDesign"

What do you like best?

I like the willingness to reproduce styles and elements, it offers a good layout of the website. You just need a little perseverance to get your own website and start receiving leads to your business, I loved the simple way to connect it with other applications like Zapier, which helps me to have the first relationship with my leads automatically This is undoubtedly a great advantage for those of us who focus on offering a quick response to our leads. Also something incredible is the ease and professionalism with which the blog looks, collections are something that can make a difference because in other platforms with a much easier administration and simpler processes do not yet have these possibilities, in general I think a platform Enough robust and professional.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes, the software does not allow me to scroll while I am in the designer quality. I also think about certain elements that the layers seem to vanish. Often, you can create a backup by clicking on collapse everything. Together, if you use a wacom tablet as a mouse, sometimes the scrolling capabilities also disappear.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Ease of use and the best, completely visible websites for google. I recommend this product for those who are into web designing profession. It is extremely good for designing responsive websites.

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

We use it to develop web designs and web hosting, and up to the present it was one of the best programs we use when we talk about how easy it is to use and how fast the work is done.

"Brilliant Product, But Could Be Improved"

What do you like best?

I love the flexibility of Webflow. With a lot of other site-builders, there are so many limitations with sizing, layout, color, imagery, etc. For designers, this is extremely exciting because you can change almost every visual detail and add effects as well. I also enjoy the ability to see other designers work because it gives me inspiration for my own.

What do you dislike?

There is a very steep learning curve. The icons can be a bit confusing, and control panel could be easier on the eyes. I think one would have to watch a number of tutorials before fully utilizing Webflow to its full potential.

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

Webflow allows for very unique UI design. The integration of design & coding is great because it gives the designer the freedom to add personalization. Plus, it's free to use.

I like that you have full and total control of every element on the page, from the sizes of different boxes and icons to the links each will take you to. The colors, the organization and the ability to create something entirely yours from scratch to ensure your design stands out and is unique.

What do you dislike?

The software takes an incredibly long time to figure out and get the hang of. There are youtube tutorials which can be helpful but the look of the designer can be daunting at first.

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

I am enjoying the endless possibilities of designs and the full control you have as a web designer without having to CODE!

"Webflow is Almost the Perfect Web Design Software"

What do you like best?

The great thing about Webflow is it is perhaps one of smartest layouts I have ever seen for web design software. It is easy to do just about anything from animations to simple div formatting. It also, in my opinion, has about the lowest learning curve out there (with an exception being Muse). But, what I really love about Webflow is how quickly we can get a website built, and how easy it is to go behind others and make changes.

I also love how powerful it is - without sacrificing its simplicity in use.

What do you dislike?

The problem with Webflow is their pricing model and their attempt to monopolize your business. In addition to this, they haven't always been very good with communicating changes to accounts and other features. For instance, we have a lot of clients that pay us for Online Advertising. Using Webflow for landing pages was great. But, then they made a decision that their forms weren't going to work if the code was exported and hosted elsewhere. This resulted in us missing out on hundreds and hundreds of leads for our clients because we weren't made aware the forms stopped working.

Now, that's not to say that they didn't own up to their mistake They did. And that is great and worth considering.

But, the other issue I have is that they want you to build and host on their website. And they do give you the ability to invoice your clients from their site (with white labeling), but this kind of makes everything we do dependent on their platform. I also take issue with this because all of our clients are on our own fast servers. Why pay Webflow to host when we have servers already? Furthermore, why limit the capabilities of websites that are hosted elsewhere? In this sense, I think they are targeting the "amateur" web designers and not the pros.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Webflow offers a free plan which would be great for anyone wanting to try it out. I'm pretty sure you'll fall in love with Webflow.

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

We use Webflow to quickly prototype a website. It makes for quick work and from a speed standpoint - prototyping a website on Webflow can be quicker than doing a traditional wireframe.

"MUST-HAVE web design service for Designers"

What do you like best?

I love being able to create websites that are fully customizable for designers and eliminate the need to learn to code. The UI is fairly easy to figure out without the need for tutorials, even though pretty great ones are provided via Webflow University. I am not sure why it took so long for a service like Webflow to appear, but I love it!

What do you dislike?

Trying to understand the CMS aspect of Webfow has been a bit of a challenge for me. I feel like it lacks features.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

None, other than just give it a try. Especially if you are trying to work directly with clients and don't know how to code.

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

I am able to work more efficiently on freelance projects, without needing a developer, which saves me money and increases profits.

"The easiest way to make websites"

What do you like best?

Webflow makes it easy for you to work on a template for a website without the gimmicks that sites like Wix are based on. With Webflow you can create a website from scratch or from a template and then export the html files to upload on your own server.

What do you dislike?

There's not much I dislike from Webflow, I find certain features slightly annoying; especially the features that limit their use to sites only hosted on the Webflow website.

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

Our company is in charge of the branding and marketing of multiple clients. Webflow has made it easy for us to create, update, and maintain our client's websites. The amount of customization options make it easy for anyone to make a website even if you have no prior web design experience.

What do you like best?

If you're familiar with writing custom html and css, Webflow will come very quickly to you. Responsive design is made simple and easy and the training and resources made available are extensive and excellent.

What do you dislike?

Repeating multiple tasks is made tiresome by settings hidden under several layers of clicks.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Try using the free version of Webflow to recreate your existing portfolio or company site. That way, you have a design already created and you can concentrate on learning the software and at the end, you have something you can actually use!

What do you like best?

Webflow is a fabulous way for non-technical entrepreneurs, marketers, and even designers to quickly build and iterate on the web. The ease of use and the UI/UX is my favorite part of Webflow. I know experienced designers that use webflow as well as non-technical marketers that have an even playing field.

What do you dislike?

I dislike that I don't know CSS. I wish I could do more with Webflow but that's on me.

"Meh...s'okay"

What do you like best?

Good WYWOSIG system. The drag and drop wireframe is appropriately used for on the go business as usual types that have little time for editing and scaling. The ability to enter text as it would appear on the page on the webpage is a great little tool. Video Tutorials help icons are always available as well, which makes for a nice touch.

What do you dislike?

Text can be relatively small, and you have to be careful with the drag and drop function sometimes. I find it tricky to get to the heart of the SEO and back end meta tags that are so essential for search engine optimisation editing and upkeep - it sometimes seems as if you have to be especially keen to dig into the section where you enter an "alt tag", for instance.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Give it a try, most definitely. The tutorials are there to help, so the support is fairly strong. If you're more of a do it yourselfer, it's worth swallowing the pride and doing.

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

We've been using it in conjunction with a new website project we're looking to kick off. As we're not full-time web editors and digital marketers right now, it saves time and money.

"For experienced Web designers only"

What do you like best?

I appreciate the flexibility of this software. It allowed me to create pretty much anything from scratch as long as I knew what I was doing. I understand why one would need a software like this, if they were creating a website that needed to look a very specific way.

What do you dislike?

I don't think this software should be advertised as easy-to-use. The user-friendliness of this software is low for someone who isn't an avid coder. I don't see how this software is "user-friendly" in any way unless you're already a professional web developer.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Only use if you're familiar with web-design terms and theory.

" A great way to get a website live fast and easy!"

What do you like best?

I have tried a few modern web design software and Webflow is absolutely the best. It follows the latest HTML5 and CSS3 guideline so the code is clean. It's so easy to set up Flexbox and it provides some basic common elements such as sliders, nav bars but still customizable. Web animation is also made so much easier. The best thing is the CMS. It's pretty much an alternative of Wordpress but so much more easier and flexible.

What do you dislike?

The learning curve for Webflow is much higher than a Wordpress or Wix alternative. I really wish I was able to move items within containers uses a "dragging" function instead of the Adobe Illustrator-esque UI.

Webflow helps me to create my customers websites very easy and quickly.

"Hit and Sometimes Miss"

What do you like best?

I have a bit of a love-hate relationship with Webflow. As a designer, I LOVE that the interface allows me to create websites without requiring me to write code (my coding skills are more basic).

That said, saying that Webflow requires no coding is a bit of a misnomer. True, you don't have to code or know code to use Webflow, but if you don't have a pretty solid understanding of HTML5/CSS/structure/lingo, you're going to be, frankly, screwed. Sure, you can go into the interface, and with only minimal review of their info materials (eg. tutorials), create a website from scratch. But, if you don't know what you're doing (eg. say, you typically do graphic design and work with Adobe photoshop or InDesign) - you'll be duped into thinking the beautiful site you made (that looks great on your screen) will look just like it looks on your screen everywhere else - and you'll be WRONG. I had to spend a lot of time really learning about how to use px vs. % vs. VH vs. em's and things like that to really be able to make my websites responsive. Now, that said, they really do have a TON of tutorials and videos and webinars out there to help you, so if you are willing to put in the time, you can learn what you need to know. One of my favourite features is that you can go into the editor of other sites and see how they are built. It's a really cool way to learn more (in a reverse engineering kind of way). I really, really love this feature and appreciate that they decided to make this available.

The bit of "hate" part of my relationship with Webflow stems from 2 things: the time required to really learn the system (to find some of the subtle design techniques that are really critical to responsiveness, you have to hunt and peck - there's no one tool I found that really goes into this in detail from A to Z), as well as some issues I've had with their support. But I've updated that part of my review (see below). All in all, I don't see myself not using Webflow anytime soon. It's one of those situations where you have to take a bit of bad with the good, because it's worth it.

What do you dislike?

This is an update... I'd had an experience with support where I hadn't gotten a response to an issue for some time (and if you read on the forums, you'll see I'm not alone in that experience). However, I was able to get through to them via an alternate route, and from that point on, it was like I was a VIP. They were really timely with their responses, and I had a fantastic phone conversation with support - which was uber helpful (and uncovered a bug on their end which may have been impacting other users). So, I'm going to recommend them more strongly, but with the caveat that customer service can be an issue (I was told they are hiring more people, so this may be alleviated soon), so you just have to be persistent and try reaching out by other means if at first you don't succeed with the support email.

One other important point: they have had a lot of changes in pricing structure in the past year which has upset the community (see many forum posts) and left designers hanging about future price changes/competitiveness of using the platform. I don't do web design full-time, but I understand why this is a significant issue. In fact, I just built a website for a company who is most likely not going to host with webflow because of the high price. It's still a great platform, and it's easy to export static sites, but if you're going with CMS, then just know your clients will be paying a more premium price.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Watch out for the pricing changes that are going on now. Webflow used to be $5 for hosting a static site, and $10 for CMS. They went through several changes last year - to both designer plans and hosting - and are set to increase hosting in April: static site for $12 and CMS for $20. That puts them above industry competition (eg. hosting a WP site on Blue Host or other hosting platform). While you can always export your code and host yourself, that obviously won't work with sites that are CMS. Just a heads up.

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

Great tool to make custom websites from scratch. It's not "idiot proof" like Wix or other web editors, but there's a lot you can do with Webflow that you can't do with those if you take the time to learn it.

"Amazing Experience"

What do you like best?

Ease of use, and the community is outstanding.

What do you dislike?

Not learning about it early on, and I wish there was a deal for hosting and account.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

While knowing CSS and HTML is important, Webflow will allow you to grow as a designer, and really focus on design skills. It will allow you to work faster and more efficient. The community is amazing as well! We are all helping each other out the best we can.

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

Being able to design and develop without having to hire a developer. Benefits me as a designer so I can focus on the design and not have to waste my time figuring out how to code something dynamic. Thus, speeding up production and turnaround times.

"Webflow is a game changer for web design"

What do you like best?

The ease of use, assuming that one knows CSS, is without equal among website builders. It writes beautiful code, is extremely customizable, and is regularly being updated with valuable additions to the interface and functioning.

What do you dislike?

It doesn’t have enough breakpoints. Sometimes I am concerned about it being browser-based, because I can’t work when my wi-fi is down. I wish it were like Adobe CC where there is a downloadable program that checks in periodically to verify a subscription.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you’re a designer who understands CSS, get Webflow!

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

I can create mockups for clients so much faster, and the built-in responsiveness saves a lot of time on the mobile layouts. Their collections which allow for designing around content is amazing. My clients are very impressed with the ease of updating their own sites, as well as the page load times of the hosting services.

"Excelente opción para una página web dinámica y minimalista "

What do you like best?

Me gusta la facilidad de copiar estilos y elementos, ofrece una buena diagramación de la página web y es interesante saber que aquí en México somos pocos los que utilizamos esta aplicación. Necesitas solo un poco de dedicación para poder montar tu propia web y comenzar a recibir leads a tu negocio, me encantó la manera tan sencilla de conectarla con otras aplicaciones como Zapier, que me ayuda a que el primer contacto con mis leads sea de manera automática esto es sin lugar a dudas una gran ventaja para quienes nos enfocamos en ofrecer una respuesta rápida a nuestros leads. Además algo increíble es la facilidad y profesionalismo con que luce el blog, las colecciones son algo que puede hacer la diferencia pues en otras plataformas con un manejo mucho más fácil y procesos más sencillos no cuentan todavía con estas posibilidades, en general me parece una plataforma bastante robusta y profesional.

What do you dislike?

No me gusta que muchos efectos tienen que ser creados de manera manual, es muy fácil la interfaz una vez que sabes un poco más sobre la plataforma, pero de inicio si fue un poco duro aprender

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Facilidad de uso y la mejor, sitios web completamente visibles para google.

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

páginas web personalizadas y responsivas, buena estructura a nivel programación pues es muy amigable en cuestiones de posicionamiento orgánico, me encanta la manera de programar y alimentar el blog y las colecciones pre cargadas

"Webflow is very user friendly."

What do you like best?

It is easy to figure out what you want to do in webflow. It has a very familiar interface and has similarities to adobe products. It also works in a very designer friendly manor. Meaning it is easy to think of what you want to do and then figure out how to do it with the available presets.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes the program does not let me scroll while I am in the designer mode. I also think on certain elements the layers seems to just disappear. You can usually get it to show back up by clicking collapse all. Also if you use a wacom tablet as a mouse sometimes the scroll capabilities also disappears.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

How can you export a published site and not have it searchable by the public.

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

We are using webflow for layout proposals. It is nice because it makes a live link that can be used to view how a layout will work responsively.
