As a UI/UX designer, I’m constantly looking for new tools and methods to allow me to more rapidly create initial user flows and to prototype an application.
Mockingbird is a new online tool that let’s you create and share wireframes quickly and with interactivity. It uses a simple drag and drop UI library, gives you the ability to link multiple pages together by making elements clickable, and makes it easy to share your wireframes with clients or your team with a simple URL.
While I still see the need in many instances for higher fidelity wireframes, Mockingbird has a low-fi quality and ease of use that appeals to many scenarios. If you’re working closely with a client and/or team, this is a great tool for those initial brainstorms. Everyone can participate to quickly flesh out ideas and make iterations. Best of all, everyone can actually click through and view it on the screen, instead of paper. If you’re working solo on creating the application or user flows, this will certainly help speed up that process. Of course, the product is new, but I do hope to see more UI elements added to the library in the future.
