Hi all, this week's free update comes with a new digital certificate and a host of bug fixes and performance improvements.
The dialog above is what you will see when installing Mockups from now on: it clearly states that what you are about to install comes from a reliable source (us), and not just some hacker somewhere.
The downside of this update for you early adopters 😉 is that you'll need to uninstall Mockups before upgrading, just this time. Full instructions here.
We also made the following bug fixes and performance improvements:
We are going to focus on the online version of Mockups for a few days, as more and more people are expressing interest in it.

I just stumbled across your mock up tool – possibly the simplest coolest tool I’ve seen in a long time. Well done!! We’ll be buying our copies very soon.
@Tomer Definitely interesting to see Microsoft going to the sketch/screenflow mode. I also see Adobe going the same route with Catalyst (will take them longer, though).
The challenge for big “designer-developer” workflow players such as Adobe and Microsoft is that they still think that pixel perfect should be the goal. Consequently, they are trying to bridge the high-end visual designer to the high-end developer. However, in 99% of the case (at least for Web) Interaction design is much more important than visual design perfection, and most of the high-end “designer-developer” workflow are not solving the real problem (IMO). This is why I think that the true opportunity for this market are “User-Developer” workflow tools, such as Balsamiq in many ways.
Me again 🙂
I have solved the problem now by reinstalling a previous version and uninstalling it via the command line:
sudo apt-get remove –purge “balsamiqmockupsfordesktop.*”
I get the following message when installing the new version on Ubuntu Linux (I have previously uninstalled the old version).
> Sorry, an error has occured.

> Error# 1
It seems that Microsoft has copied balsamiq mockup solution with their version, called SketchFlow – http://electricbeach.org/?p=145
