"Super easy to use, yet not as comprehensive as other software of the same type"

What do you like best?

This software is definitely easy to use, and it is simple, if that is what you are looking for. If you are newer to app development, this software would definitely support you during each phase of app development. No one who I know who has worked with it dislikes it, regardless of their savviness with similar or more complex software. The overall design and layout is intuitive and pleasing.

What do you dislike?

There are other programs out there that offer more complex functions, but this is a great starter program. It does have a tendency to freeze a bit, but this might be exclusive to our resources/capacity. Again, if you are super savvy with more complex programs, you might not like the simplicity of mockingbird. I don't think that purchasing this software would be at all a gamble.

Recommendations to others considering the product

great customer service, simple product, gives clean results! Not at all complex, so even entry-level support could easily utilize this product. We have been very pleased with the ease of use and results.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Overall, it is simple and straightforward, and having interns utilize the software has been great, without expending too much training time, when manpower could be better utilized elsewhere. Time and manpower are at a premium for us, so the more that the less experienced employees can do, the better. This is a super excellent training program and has worked wonders for us so far.

"My favorite application for wireframing websites."

What do you like best?

This is my go to for the start of everyone of my website builds. It's clean UI and intuitive interface makes it a breeze to use.

What do you dislike?

Could use a few more functions. But for a basic site, Mockingbird handles everything I need it to.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It's a great tool for wireframes.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I like to show every client a rough wireframe mockup before starting on any build. It helps make sure the client has an idea of what I'm envisioning.

What Wireframing solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"Mockingbird is a lifesaver."

What do you like best?

This might be the best mockup program I've used so far. My coworkers love it and I've found that it's user-friendly enough to even accommodate me—that being said, I'm not very UI savvy. So take from that what you will.

What do you dislike?

The toolbar can be hard to track down and, along with that, the program overall doesn't offer a lot of guidance. I had my coworkers to help me, but I think if I'd been using it alone, it would've taken me a lot longer to get acclimated. It would also be nice to have more export options, but I'm sure an update will bring those eventually.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It's definitely worth a shot if you're in the business for it—if not, I'm not sure it's a software program you'd necessarily need.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It definitely saves time and headaches—and that's kind of what most software is for.

"Easy to use"

What do you like best?

It is easy to use, once you get going and you can get the layout you require. It has worked for me but you need a bit of patience. Once you get to know your way around it it can be really quite easy and quick. To add something new its a easy double click or drag and drop feature which is a bonus. All the other features are self explanatory. Things are easy to resize and move around.

What do you dislike?

A few features are slow to load which makes the experience a pretty bad one. It does not have as many features as other similar software there in having it's limitations. But if you need to use it to do something simple its fine.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Have a look at the online version first to make sure it is what you require

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Doing a lot of new layouts and this is helping with that

"Easy to Use"

What do you like best?

It is very easy to use and understand, there are pre-loaded standard site images that you can drag and drop to your wireframe.

What do you dislike?

I would like more export/share options. I with there were also more elements that you were able to add to the frame.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Try it out!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Site mock ups and wireframing.

"Limited capabilities but thoughtful"

What do you like best?

I feel like mockingbird was quick and light for wireframing, and it was good that they offered a "super low fi" mode. I could use mockingbird on my Chromebook.

What do you dislike?

I didn't think that the design options were as robust as sketch or uxpin. I dislike being hemmed in to present UI elements.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I decided to go with sketch instead, since sketch has more shape merging capabilities and plugins to customize the software.

"Very fast & easy websites UI mockup development tool"

What do you like best?

I like the speed and ease of the User interface and the ready-made library objects. Just drag and drop the user interface object you need on the canvas, resize it and you're done.

What do you dislike?

I'd like to export the generated files in multiple graphic file formats

Recommendations to others considering the product

Just try it, download the evaluation copy and try the speed and ease of use of this software. Tried once, never turned back.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Developing website's user interface mockups with other software need the double of working time, time is money so it solve a lot of business problems for me. I can develop more mockups therefore I can work with many more customers.

"Okay"

What do you like best?

I liked that you could add widgets and that the software doesn't use Java and Flash, making it easier on both ends.

What do you dislike?

I'm not a huge fan of the user interface. Other than that, really no complaints. Even the price is reasonable.

"Excellent for the UI Challeneged"

What do you like best?

As a person who is terrible at making good UI's, I am able to use this tool to mock up what I am envisioning, and have it worked on by others to be refined, and made functional.

What do you dislike?

Lack of formats for exporting, it means while using the free version, you are very limited.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Take a look, it is simple to use, and reliable.

"Fast, free, and easy. "

What do you like best?

Extremely intuitive and easy to use for the beginner. I needed to quickly mock-up some UI flows for a website our team was constructing and Mockingbird was recommended to me by a friend. I was able to be up and running in 5 minutes with a free account, with very extensive features and able to complete wire-frame mock-ups for the flow very quickly with their drag and drop system. Their system also makes it very easy to export the wire-frame files you create as PNG's for use in an explanatory Powerpoint presentation.

What do you dislike?

When you re-log in to the system, it is a bit difficult to find where your previous work is the first time (because their upper toolbar is inconspicuous).

Recommendations to others considering the product

You can get a very good amount done with just their free plan, which lets you have up to 10 pages wire-framed out and 2 users working on the same project. For bigger projects, their Personal and Team plans are very affordable.

"Fast and easy wireframing on the web "

What do you like best?

It was so easy to get started -- just 'click' on their website and I was on. Very easy to use and intuitive -- drag and drop widgets, group, etc., and share. It's possible to mock and then link up multiple pages. I esp like the fact that it is web-based and immediately went to the layout page with drag and drop funcationality

What do you dislike?

Can export as pdf or png but not as many file formats as I'd like (at least in the free version).

Recommendations to others considering the product

There's much to like and little to dislike here. Click the 'preview' button to check out the wireframe that can be made in literally minutes
