Announcing Balsamiq Wireframes for Google Drive
Hello friends of Balsamiq!
We are very excited today to share with you another one of our products that uses Balsamiq Wireframes, the next-generation collaborative low-fidelity wireframing editor we told you about recently.
Introducing: Balsamiq Wireframes for Google Drive
Balsamiq Wireframes for Google Drive is a Google Drive add-on which allows you and your team to create and collaborate on low-fidelity wireframes, all from within Google Drive.
This new major version of our add-on was completely re-written from the ground up, to offer you a web-native - no Flash plugin required! - fast, smooth and tightly integrated experience.
It includes all of the goodness of Balsamiq Wireframes: a faster, more responsive editor, more UI controls (including preconfigured Material Design controls), a bigger canvas, vectors everywhere, better collaboration with chat and real-time co-editing, and much more. See the Balsamiq Wireframes intro post for more details.
We’ve worked hard to make the Google Drive integration as intuitive as possible: as always, you don’t have to manage users or permissions in a separate app, we just piggyback on the Google Drive authentication and permission mechanism. In Balsamiq Wireframes for Google Drive, you can even access the Google Drive sharing dialog directly from the editor.
We also added a Google Drive Picker integration, so including images from Google Drive only takes a couple of clicks!
Last but not least, many of you asked for a quick way to include your wireframes in Google Docs, Sheets and Slides.
We are proud to be a launch partner for Google Slides add-ons, and be able to announce a set of 3 little add-ons that will allow you to very quickly browse and insert your wireframes in your G Suite documents.
Take a look at how quick it is!
We're just scratching the surface of what you can do with Balsamiq Wireframes for Google Drive.
We want to keep our Google Drive plugin super-affordable, so we’re keeping our subscription plans at the existing, low price of $5/month or $50/year per user.
