Balsamiq fights for the Users

Monday, August 1st, 2011

Watching my tweet stream flow past, its something we all do. I wonder if you notice those accounts that you follow that you know tweet infrequently. They are more noticeable when they send an update, as you brain spots them a mile off, as long as you are in the right place at the right time. Another good thing about those types of updates, is that you are more likely to pay more attention to them.

However , I found out that Balsamiq have just released an update and bundled a new font with their popular wireframing and prototyping tool. Its such a major shift forward. Ditching Comic Sans has breathed new life into the app and I love that they’ve taken the time to listen to user requests, and that the guys at Balsamiq clearly do not work for the MCP (blatant TRON references)
