Ratings and Reviews



Simple and very reliable!

Waste of time – poor UI

Paul Horne

The interface is horribly unintuitive – in an app made for UI designers? There's no explanation how to use the app at all – you'll most likely get thrown onto a totally blank screen with no menus and the only option is to double-click and change the color of the background. If you slide in from the right just perfectly you may figure out how to bring in the sidebar – but it's not easy. It just takes way too long to get any real design done – You could knock out a mock-up much faster using Keynote – an app which also lets you set up buttons and triggers to go to different screens. This is just a slow, buggy way to create a single screen graphic.



No way to group items onto a layer, so if you make a button and add text and want to move it, you have to move the button and then the text. If you want three buttons that are the same size with same size font, you have to create 3 buttons and then create 3 button texts, instead of being able to copy the whole thing and paste it. The resizing is unresponsive and the ability to select and move a small object is finicky at best. I also had to go onto the developer site to see that closing the app saves the mockup... But what if I want more than one? What if I am working on multiple states of the page?

You are better off with a real napkin
