    Very interesting screenshot.I suspect no binaries/sources are coming? 🙂

  2. check out iplotz.com for navigable wireframing and mockups

    • Iplotz.com looks great too – liked the idea of navigable wire frames and online collaboration. What I liked about the Balsamiq more is that I can integrate it into a Wiki for collaboration. Another feature – export and import as XML. This allows us to use normal means of communication as a text e-mail to exchange the wire frames.

      BTW: These two tools are so much alike that it is almost they were created by the same person.

  3. We have the import/export xml in alpha at the moment, should be implemented in the next 10 days or so, along with the desktop app. Integration with wikis is under development with our own API, starting with Version One wiki system, and extending to others such as Twiki and Mediawiki.

    The reason they are similar is they were both developed in Flex, and I was influenced by Balsamiq’s use of sketched items. As we add new features, you will see more differences. For a start we will be adding great annotation features, iphone components, OSX and windows skins for components, and print layout tools. That’s just in the next few weeks.

    iplotz looks very promising. we would be interested in the mediawiki integration. is there a timing for it?

    • This is true, but, I just saw that Microsoft releasing the SketchFlow in Silverlight – this is THE KILLER APP!!! I’ve already downloaded Blend 3, but it’s not there yet. I’m waiting for the next release. This is THE feature to die for 😉
