Hey Joe! Thank you for the honest feedback. Clearly we missed the mark with y'all, and while I bummed about that, I know we can be better. I'm the design community manager for InVision, and would love to chat with you, if you are interested. I'm so sorry you've had this experience, and I would love to see how we can make it better.
Hey Ryan! Bummed it’s so laggy for you! We are working crazy hard on Studio’s performance. What machine are you running it on? I would love to connect you with someone from our Studio team to dig into the issue. It so important for us that Studio is crazy fast.

Mobile experiences designed from a desktop present a unique challenge; you’re designing with clicks and drags that will be experienced as taps and swipes. With Studio mirroring for iOS (Android coming soon), you can mirror your mobile designs from Studio to the InVision mobile app by scanning a QR code.
Freehand is InVision’s collaborative canvas to sketch and share ideas as a team that’s even better than gathering around a whiteboard in person. You can use Freehand to wireframe, plan, draw, scribble notes on your InVision prototype, and more—throughout the entire design process. Before today, this experience was available on a web browser. Now you can create and collaborate on a Freehand through the ease of a native mobile app—a perfect use case for your tablets and pencils.
You and your team can collaborate and comment on prototypes and Boards, sketch with Freehand, mirror Studio designs, and more. Here’s the full recap of what you can do with the InVision mobile app:
Hey Mitch! I'm Kris with InVision. Bummed to hear that Craft is causing so many issues for you and your team! I would love to help make that better. Would you be willing to jump on a call with me to talk more about the issues? Thanks!
The app store lets you connect Studio to tools you and your team use every day as well as augment Studio’s existing suite of features with brand new capabilities. We believe wholeheartedly in the mental model and accessibility of an apps-based approach. The advantages of in-tool discoverability plays a huge part here, making it easy to find, understand, and install apps on a level playing field.
Sandboxing an App to just one part of Studio doesn’t allow for the contextual implementation that many solutions require. That’s why we’ve sought to provide a wide-array of deployment opportunities and locations for Apps to slot into. This allows Apps to not only augment Studio with new ‘superpowers’, but to do so in a UI-appropriate context, making them intuitive and accessible.
If Apps are one side of the extensibility equation, then digital assets are the other. We’ve all downloaded icons, components, fonts, UI kits, etc while working on a project at some point. The Studio App Store also includes a dedicated assets section where creators can launch and distribute digital assets of every shape and form. Again, this is all about optimizing flow- we believe that the ability to do this within the context of your design space ultimately = saved time and more streamlining.
If you’re interested in developing for Studio and finding out more about this whole Apps & Assets thing we’d LOVE to have you onboard. We’re looking forward to continuing to grow from your feedback in the coming weeks and months and to continue iterating here. We appreciate your passion and the giving of your time to help us continue to grow, learn, and evolve.

Hey Justin! Thanks for the super helpful feedback. I would love to chat more with you 1-1 on how we can fix these issue for you and your team. It sucks when the tools we rely on aren't living up to our expectations, and. I hate that we are doing that to y'all now.
