Balsamiq Cloud is a web-based user interface design tool for creating wireframes sometimes called mockups or low-fidelity prototypes. You can use it to generate digital sketches of your idea or concept for an application or website, to facilitate discussion and understanding before any code is written. The completed wireframes can be used for user testing, clarifying your vision, getting feedback from stakeholders, or getting approval to start development.
Quick Start Guide To get started, you first need to sign up at balsamiq. Next, create a project by clicking the Create a New Project or Upload Project buttons, or join one that you have been invited to. A project is a set of wireframes that pertain to a specific product or feature. Tip: Larger projects can be broader in scope, but may be harder to manage. One project may be appropriate for an entire new product that needs to be fleshed out, but more mature products typically have one project per feature or release.
Depending on how you work or your role on the project , you can also invite collaborators to edit or review the wireframes as you build them. Balsamiq Cloud supports real-time collaboration, comments, and chat , so that multiple people can work on the same project together. Click the "manage project members Drag and drop, edit, and arrange over 75 user interface control types to create anything you can imagine. Read about adding and arranging and editing controls to learn how to create your wireframes.
Once you are ready to share your wireframes with clients or stakeholders, you can send a private or public link , or exporting to PDF or images. Balsamiq Cloud brings the collaborative editing features from our web-based myBalsamiq product to the updated editor from our Desktop version, and adds new communication and review capabilities such as chat, comments, and review mode.
