[Note: This giveaway is over!]
LucidChart has offered to give away 5 Professional licenses (each worth $99.95/year) to UX Movement readers for free. LucidChart is a HTML5 diagramming application you can use to create website wireframes, iPhone mockups, site maps and more right in your browser. With LucidChart’s real-time collaboration, it’s easy to work together with team members or invite your client for a quick demo.
Create an interactive prototype and collaborate with clients.
Through an intuitive system of ‘hot spots’ and ‘states,’ designers can go from a static wireframe to a prototype that show the interactions that will take place on a website. This helps designers improve the user experience and helps clients effectively visualize the result through the demo mode.
When working on a document, the owner can invite others to collaborate and set permissions for each collaborator – own, edit or view. As others make edits to the document, these changes merge and sync in real-time with group chat making it easy to communicate.
Mockup your iPhone application
With mobile becoming an increasingly important channel for designers, LucidChart provides templates and common elements for iPhone mockups. Similar to a website wireframe, adding ‘hot spots’ and ‘states’ inserts interactivity and brings the mockup closer to reality.
Only web application with Microsoft Visio import
In the past, Microsoft Visio has been the default tool for many designers. This often resulted in e-mail overload as iteration after iteration goes back and forth to the client. With LucidChart’s most recent release, designers can now import these documents from Visio and transition entirely to the cloud.
