11 Best Prototyping Tools and how to choose one that suits you
We’ll end the list with another powerful prototyping tool called “Balsamiq Mockups”. It replicates the speed and convenience of creating mockups on paper, but on a digital medium. Designers can choose from more than 500 pre – made icons and items — or components they draw themselves. The interactions are basic, and the final, low-fidelity prototype feels more like an interactive, high-fidelity wireframe.

If you are a ‘UX newbie’, this tool works wonders as it is highly straightforward to use. Balsamiq’s sweet spot is the UX ideation phase. It produces really great rough sketches of the prototype for clients to view, which is a big plus for brainstorming sessions. Adopting really simple and fast keyboard shortcuts for users to increase productivity and the speed of creating mockups. With all of its low fidelity features, we can consider it more as a wireframing tool rather than a prototyping tool. If you are not a professional designer and you are looking for a tool that allows creating simple and static wireframes, Balsamiq can be used.

Our first version of the product probably wasn’t that great, if we had just spent one day in something like Balsamiq mock-ups we would have gotten the flow and wording of the product a lot better and it would have been a better product. Balsamiq Mockups is really good because it’s just a wireframe design, and you don’t think too much about the final UI, you’re just getting how the flow works together so I highly recommend that!

How To Make An App – Zero to App Store In 9 Steps - LearnAppMaking
This mockup was created with Balsamiq Mockups, a terrific tool I’ve used for 7+ years to create professional mockups.
In the screenshot above you can see one of the greatest features from Balsamiq Mockups, which is the “Linking” feature. With it, you can link a UI element (like a button) to one of the pages of your mockup. When you click the UI element, you’ll navigate to the linked page.
It’s important to keep your mockups and sketches as rough as possible. Resist the temptation to perfect your mockups with small details, and use a “rough” tool like Balsamiq if you can.

Shootout at the Protoyping Corral - Sacramento User Experience Design (SUX!) (Sacramento, CA) | Meetup
One of the most beloved rapid prototyping tools for UX designers is Balsamiq

Here's the Balsamiq Chrome extension I've used for a couple projects. Advantage has been in environments where I don't have admin permissions to download/install software on my machine or network. Also because it's tied to my own Chrome account, I can take it with me to whatever project I've been working on

React Amsterdam Review — Main track – Átila Fassina – Medium
Stefano Masini did a good job showing his stack at Balsamiq and pointing out how GraphQL is just not some cool new tool with a hype. It actually helps you have better code and it improves your workflow by easing test coverage and test-running performance. Definitely something I’m looking forward on testing and I’ll make use of Stefano’s experience as soon as I get to that!

Balsamiq Review - Easy to use by Lauren V. April 27, 2017
How likely is it that you would recommend the product to a friend or colleague?
10 / 10
What do you like best?
Love how quickly I can mock something up and make changes. I also love the price. It's easy to recommend to new ui designers because they wont have to break the bank to be able to afford the product.

What do you dislike?
I'd like the option to make it higher fidelity if i wanted to. I understand it's meant to be for quick prototyping, but it'd be nice to do more with it.

Recommendations to others considering the product
It's a great affordable tool for those who are just starting out as ui or ux designers. It's also great for quick rapid protyping. The interface is intuitive and easy to use. I can normally bang out a nice design in less than 30 minutes.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
user interface changes for our software design. I'm not sure what benefits i've realized. That's kind of a confusing question. Benefits about the software? Those I've listed above.

6 Tools to Stop Your Devs and Designers Strangling Each Other — SitePoint
There are plenty of good tools out there, but the one we absolutely favor by far is Balsamiq.

Balsamiq has a full library of components and design elements which can be used to quickly create screens which need to be sent to the developers for implementation.

Balsamiq is available both as a desktop application for Mac or Windows and a cloud-based service.

Whilst my preference is still with Balsamiq because, honestly, I like my mockups be just that – mockups, rather than near pixel-perfect designs, Moqups is another great wireframe tool.

Tearing Down & Mocking Up Facebook with Balsamiq – Historian to Software Engineer
This was my first time using Balsamiq and I am so glad to have learned this software for future web design. The program allows for a very fast and efficient way to create useful and effective mockup designs of a website before entering into the production phase.
I'd recommend you mockup all of your screens and the flow using a tool like Balsamiq before showing your app to any freelancer. Here you're going to eliminate many communication problems and give you both a clear idea of what you need. Balsamiq is super-simple to use - it's a drag and drop tool used by non-programmers all the time.

As for best practices, starting using wireframes on blank paper or a service like Balsamiq mockups. I am still surprised how many developers start with an editor instead of a wireframe but then again I only switched a year back before realizing how big a time saver it is.
