I'm looking for a web-based app which I would use to create quick mockup/wireframe of a web page and share that with a client.

Main requirements are:

  • Free (or cheap, less than $5 per month)
  • Online based
  • Can share link of mockup without asking user who needs to see it to register


  • Usable on tablets or have Android app
  • Can export design as PNG or JPG
  • For other visitors: Balsamiq starts at 12$/m, so it seems not a valid answer here, otherwise I'd probably have suggested it. – Thomas Weller Jun 2 '16 at 7:15

    And Pencil is not available as a web app. Damn, no reputation to earn today ;-) – Thomas Weller Jun 2 '16 at 7:18
  • @Thomas Tell the OP to just use Cameyo's Play feature with Pencil:) – Tom Jun 2 '16 at 19:05

  • Execute interaction sequentially & simultaneously
  • Interaction state

  • Auto backup
  • Batch modification
  • Page tag
  • Component remarks
  • Import & export component fragment
  • Import & export project fragment
  • Ruler and guidelines

This basically includes all of your requirements but if you want to export to PNG/JPG, you're going to have to buy the Pro version.

There's two that come to mind, first, there's Wireframe.cc. There is a free and premium version. The free version appears to meet your requirements of,

  • Being free, ya!
  • Online based, it's a web app - no software required

The premium version just includes private accounts & wireframes, multipaged wireframes, clickable elements, an export feature to PDF & PNG, and allows for revisions. This should work for what you're trying to do.
