Balsamiq Mockups

Balsamiq Mockups is a web tool that allows users to mock up different designs and ideas quickly and easily. Balsamic Mockups is similar to drawing mockups, but it is digital, allowing users to tweak and rearrange controls easily, with a cleaner end product. Teams can come up with a design and iterate over it in real-time in the course of a meeting.

Get it done as a team Product managers, designers, developers and even clients can now work together in the same tool to quickly iterate over software mockups, before writing code.

Powerful And Scalable With more than 60 pre-built controls to choose from, users can design anything from a super-simple dialog box to a full-fledged application, from a simple website to a Rich Internet Application.

Focus on functionality Balsamiq Mockups intentionally uses hand-drawn UI elements, so that people don’t get attached to “that pretty color gradient” or think that the mockup has actual code behind it and is “practically done”.

Spice Up your wiki Mockups is tightly integrated with Atlassian Confluence, Atlassian JIRA and XWiki. There is also a desktop version for use offline.
