Best Wireframing Software

Wireframing software is used to diagram and create the blueprints of a website, web page, or application during the early stages of development. Wireframes range from simple sketches and page layouts to realistic and moderately responsive representations of a developing web page or application. Teams will develop and outline requirements with wireframing tools prior to construction. Development teams will collaborate to allocate resources and requirements as they design the look and feel of applications with wireframing tools. They will use wireframing products to determine locations of headers, text, and and other graphical elements. Then, development teams will turn this initial mockup into either a prototype or the final product. There is crossover between wireframing products and prototyping products, but wireframing tools produce preliminary outlines with significantly less fidelity and functionality.

To qualify for inclusion in the Wireframing category, a product must:

  • Provide tools for outlining applications structure, and content
  • Possess element libraries with structures, outlines, and symbols
  • Produce only minimally interactive, low-fidelity mockups
  • Provide interface creating and editing tools
  • Possess requirements management tools
  • Possess tools for exporting or sharing wireframes

    Lucidchart is an essential visual productivity platform that helps anyone understand and share ideas, information, and processes with clarity. With this intuitive, cloud-based solution, anyone can learn to think visually and collaborate in real time while building flowcharts, mockups, UML diagrams, and more. Lucidchart is utilized in over 175 countries by more than 9 million users, including Comcast, NASA, Netflix, Target and Xerox. Since the Utah-based company’s founding in 2010, it has grown in revenue by nearly 100 percent each year and has received numerous awards for its business and workplace culture. Lucidchart also releases updates to user accounts every month so the program continues to improve as you use it. We support Visio import and export, and you can export your diagram as a PDF or image. Lucidchart includes all the standard libraries that you would expect from a Visio alternative, including: flowcharts, swimlanes, ERD, wireframes, Venn diagrams, mind mapping and other specialized libraries. If you don't find the library that you are looking for, you can always create your own by importing .svg files into a new custom library. Lucidchart is most often compared to Microsoft Visio. They are both enterprise-level diagramming products. As a Visio alternative SaaS offering, Lucidchart allows users to work on the same document at the same time as their colleagues in any modern browser.


    Balsamiq Wireframes is a rapid wireframing software that combines the comfort and simplicity of paper sketching with the power of a digital tool, so your work is easier to share, modify, and get honest feedback on. Mockups look like sketches, so stakeholders won't get distracted by little details, and can focus on what's important instead. Balsamiq really shines during the early stages of designing a new interface. Our little tool is zenware, meaning that it will help you get "in the zone", and stay there. Our aim is for you to forget our software is there at all. Balsamiq offers the same speed and rough feel as sketching with pencil, with the advantage of the digital medium: drag & drop to resize and rearrange elements, make changes without starting over, and your work is clear enough that you'll make sense of them later. Please consider that we don’t reply to G2Crowd requests for contact. Here’s how and where you can find us: https://balsamiq.com/company/#contact

    Diagrams are as powerful as they are versatile. They get people to see the big picture. They help teams vault over communication hurdles. They can be equally useful for looking at high-level plans or drilling down to the smallest detail. And, if you think there’s no inner diagramming Jedi waiting to awaken within you, give us a chance to prove you wrong. Visual Language is Universal Chances are, you’ve experienced the instant disorientation that sets in when you visit a country and don’t speak the language. You immediately regress to a time when you couldn’t read and symbols become your new best friends. Symbols can guide you to food, shelter and gas. They can help you avoid danger and tell you when to stop and when to go. Diagrams (comprised of multiple symbols) are even more powerful. A diagram can align a team, clarify a process, communicate a complicated idea and get departments with different areas of expertise to finally understand each other. Whether you’re a software engineer, a product manager, work in marketing or HR or just want to show your brilliant sense of humor, there’s a diagram for you.
