  • The best app for working on wireframes and prototypes together in meetings or alone e.g. when traveling. Use it for doing both very fast sketches and perfect and detailed prototypes.

  • commented on Mockplus
    Actually I am now is trying this design tool. Compared with Axure, UXpin, from my perspective, Mockplus is much easier and cleaner. In fact, I am a lover of minimalism, I really like the style. Prototype design should be simple and minimal so as to express the great ideas and thoughts in the mind of a designer. Others, like colors, fonts, backgrounds, etc., are just a waste of time for prototype design I think.
