We don’t have an android version of Mockups yet, @Rituyadav, but it’s something we are planning on doing.

We hope to have some more news soon :slight_smile:

Thanks Brendon.

Could you suggest ways to share the mock-ups (with all links) with other who do not have Balsamiq Software please?

Absolutely, @Rituyadav. We have a page dedicated to sharing right here.

My preference is to send a PDF. That will allow folks to click through your mockups on any device.

Let me know if that works for you! :slight_smile:

I saw a youtube video from 2011 where the guy used something called “mockups 2 android” to get view the mockup on an android phone. Does that still exist?

Not sure, @johnmerritt1007. I’m having trouble finding anything on it myself :frowning:

Hey! Can I run the balsamiq screens on an android device? Have created a mock android app and would like to show a demo on an android phone.

Hi @Samay_Shah and thanks for joining the conversation!

While we don’t have a dedicated Android version of our app yet (but that’s planned), we usually recommend exporting a project to a PDF and opening it from the desired device.

One handy option is to mark the Android phone frame as a Markup item and then hide Markup elements before exporting. This way, only the needed content will show up in your exported PDF on the phone.

Hope this helps!
