Balsamiq
Of course there is no need to draw the screens by hand, but instead you can use a tool to create wireframes. I would like to start with a short definition of the term “wireframe”, as people define the scope of wireframes differently or mix it with mockups. In our daily UX work we produce wireframes that show the main elements of a UI. A wireframe provides information on the main UI elements (which ones are used) and the structure of information (where the elements are placed). All in all it’s a visual description of the basic UI and how everything interrelates.

The market provides a lot of tools to create wireframes, but my favorite one is Balsamiq. With Balsamiq it’s easy to create the first skeleton of your UI. You simply drag elements, such as buttons and dropdowns, into your working area. The workflow is as simple as that, and everyone can quickly start with it. There is no need to read manuals or to do a big testing phase to understand how Balsamiq works. For us this is a big advantage as also our product managers can, if needed, visualize their ideas.

In general I like Balsamiq as it helps to focus on creating wireframes and avoids going into design details. With the simple elements and the s

Balsamiq
Balsamiq is a rapid wireframing tool that reproduces the experience of whiteboarding, but on the computer. It’s sketch-like aesthetics may be a turn off for some designers, but I think it encourages brainstorming and creativity (remember what I said earlier about pen and paper?). One of the advantages of Balsamiq is that it comes with preloaded with interface elements such as buttons, alert boxes, menus, and more to make rapid wireframing, well, rapid. Balsamiq also offers version control for easy iteration — their web app even has branching!

The 20 best wireframe tools - Web Design Tips
Balsamiq Mockups aims to replicate the experience of sketching on a whiteboard

Balsamiq Mockups includes several drag-and-drop elements, from buttons to lists, each styled as a hand-drawing. The basic premise behind this wireframing tool is to keep the mock-ups ‘intentionally rough and low fidelity’, to encourage as much feedback as possible.

Web UI Mockup Tools Free
The Mockup tool Balsamiq, or Balsamiq Studios, is probably the best-known Web UI mockup tools for free on the list. It is offered once as a desktop application, locally installed on the PC, and then continues as a web application. You can test both versions free for 30 days before deciding on a payment version.
After the application is loaded, you can choose from a wide range of ready-made elements to create the mockup of your site. These elements are grouped into meaningful categories and you can easily drag them onto the drawing surface. Once there, you can format it according to your wishes.
Overall, Balsamiq is a very comprehensive and easy-to-use mockup tool. Unfortunately, the hint at the bottom of demo version quickly leaps in your eyes. It is written that the demo version automatically resets every few minutes. That means, after about 2–3 minutes your work will be lost and you are encouraged to use the “real versions”.
Balsamiq with the free demo version isn’t recommended, but with the 30-day trial version, you can do quite a lot.

What is a wireframe?
Despite how it sounds, it doesn’t involve wires or frames, so put away your craft supplies. A wireframe is essentially a drawing of a user interface. They range from rough pencil sketches to more polished renderings created in a wireframing tool like Balsamiq, or with a design tool such as Sketch or Adobe XD. They’re especially useful in the early stages of a project when you’re fleshing out your ideas.

Quick fix if you're having issues entering text in the Balsamiq Cloud app : wacom
Quick fix if you're having issues entering text in the Balsamiq Cloud app
Using an older Pen and Touch CTH-480 with a Windows machine. I use it as a mouse replacement, in Mouse mode exclusively, touch is turned off.

I encountered issues entering text in the new cloud version of Balsamiq Wireframes. I could perform every other kind of editing operation except changing or entering text; nothing I entered would "stick".

Turns out Windows Ink was the issue. Go into your driver control panel, and under Mapping, switch to Pen mode. If the Windows Ink checkbox is selected, disable it. Then switch back to Mouse mapping.

I have spoken extensively with Balsamiq support about this. It seems that if Ink is turned on, their text inputs are expecting Ink and not keyboard text. Something they need to fix on their end (maybe Ink support needs to be an explicit user preference) but in the meantime this worked for me.
