As I ramp up my new software company, one critical need I have is to communicate my UI ideas to clients and .Net programmers. I’ve used Excel and Visio for the task and wasn’t very satisfied with either. I figure that most of my blog’s readers are also database developer who might also need to help with project designs from time to time, so it makes sense to share the results of my search.
What I like most is that the resulting mock-ups look like mock-ups – the back of a napkin pencil sketch type of mock-ups. Because my goal is to invite discovery and iterations, a hand-drawn mock-up is better than a perfect polished Windows app look. It took me about 30 minutes to figure it out and crank out 2 form designs. Highly recommended.
