Pros: Creating mockups quickly and being able to share and collaborate with others is a huge benefit.
Cons: Some objects for more modern interface concepts are missing and must be created manually.
Overall: We use Balamiq to quickly create functional mockups for custom software and website long before visual design is complete. This allows us to talk to customers about HOW thing should work rather than what they look like. Our designers use the ideas to build into their visual design knowing we've already hammered out the functionality.
Pros: Balsamiq mockups tool help us to visualize and bring to life the client thoughts and design ideas in a rapid prototyping discussions. I liked the features to access the components easily, and even develop mobile layouts prototypes.
Cons: There are some usability issues with the overlay features, and the grid content is also difficult to manage.
Overall: The ease of use of this software during client discussions saved lots of misunderstandings and helped prototype the solution wireframes quickly.
Pros: Balsamiq has a practically null learning curve. It has a very clear UI and it's very intuitive
Cons: Sometimes it is hard to mockup little details
Overall: Balsamiq is a great tool for doing high levels prototypes. It helps at the beginning of every project or wireframe, to start sketching ideas and taking some decisions.
Pros: I used this software in my previous job to design new service features for our content management products. Balsamiq was useful in being able to very quickly sketch out and edit mock-ups and then share them with our development team. I liked the visual style they employed (made to look like hand-drawn sketches), and the palette of components, including smart phone screens, which were very nice when doing mobile compatibility layouts.
Cons: The software could be slow at times, and it lacked certain design I would have otherwise expected to find in a standard mock-up program. I would suggest looking at the hosted version instead of downloading.
Overall: It served its purpose nicely, and was a big help for our small business to manage software development. It may not be the most comprehensive, but it will certainly get the job done.
Pros: Ability to import images and use them on my wireframes and mock-up user interface designs.
Cons: I think the interface elements are way too few and because it depends on the internet, there is the tendency to experience lags while using Balsamiq.
Overall: I use Balsamiq for quick wire framing of my software ideas.
Pros: Drag and drop to create mockup
Support many useful elements like iOS components, icons...
Export to png is a good features.
Cons: Table is somehow hard to use
No Android components.
I think the group of elements should be consider: I sometime hard to see the line ____ . I think it was placed in a wrong groups
Icon only have 4 sizes but in some situations, I need it more bigger
Overall: Good but need improve
Thank you for the review.
It is right that we did not have a selection of Android controls in the older versions of Balsamiq Mockups. In the latest version of Balsamiq Mockups 3 and Balsamiq Cloud we do have a selection of Android controls. If you are missing one please tell us via firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our Icons support 6 different sizes.
Regarding the lines being hard to see please contact email@example.com and we are happy to look into the matter.
Pros: The greatest advantage of the tool is ease of use. With very little instruction a developer or architect is quickly able to create a web user interface design. This is extremely helpful when working with non-technical stake holders. Designs can be reviewed and quickly updated to dial-in requirements. It prevents a lot of less-than-productive meetings.
Cons: I don't have any real issues with the software. Perhaps additional export types would be good but I haven't really found a need for that in practice.
Pros: Balsamic makes it quick and easy to build wireframes at a relatively low cost. Doesn't allow much in way of formatting, so it forces you to focus on just structure and function - which is exactly what some projects need.
Balsamiq's web app is awesome, and it allows you to build/access wireframes even if you don't have the app on hand.
Cons: Just as a personal preference, the standard font that Balsamiq uses is a bit childish and it can make it hard to focus on the structure.
Balsamiq only produces low-fi wireframes, so if you need something more robust, use another software.
Overall: Overall, Balsamiq a solid product and does what it promises: makes it easy to build and share low-fi wireframes.
Pros: The general disposition of the elements to use to carry out the work is good and its usability also. It allows to load personal assets to use in different projects and export as PDF or images.
Cons: It does not allow high-level mockups in HTML, rather it desatca for being a "first version" of them. Even his "sketchy style" make it not become an almost final model of an application to be developed.
Overall: For many years I have been using the standalone version of the application almost daily. It is an easy application to use and in a short time you achieve a first iteration for a project. It has a "sketchy" aspect, which is a registered trademark (maybe because I have been using it for years, but I love it)
Pros: A lightweight, simple UI that makes marking mockups easy. The feature set is small, but this is made up by ease of use and simplicity. You can knock out a proof of concept quite quickly without lots of time and the learning curve isn't very steep.
Cons: Not advisable for very detailed mocks that require editing and displaying design elements. While slim in features, it still makes up for this with ease.
Overall: Designing and creating proofs of concept, noting ideas and working out what a front-end should look like.
