Each App in MockFlow DesignCloud is managed using its Dashboard. The Dashboard provides project management, account settings, sharing, license management and more with a consistent user experience across apps. This new release of dashboard has undergone a major change in almost all aspects of its functionality as noted below:
- Clean design – The overall look and feel is minimal with a cleaner approach than the outgoing design
- Faster App Switching – Switching between apps in Dashboard is now easier and more obvious
- Grid Project Layout – With Grid based layout user will see more projects on screen with project info at a glance
- Faster Sharing – Sharing is now faster with some workflow and interface improvements
- Consistent UX – The user experience is consistent no matter what MockFlow app you are using which means less to learn
For your reference, here is a screenshot of the outgoing dashboard interface:
We are excited to officially announce a new major update to MockFlow DesignCollab. As you may know DesignCollab helps users to share design variations with their team to help select the best design. This update brings in new features that improves this decision making process in approving design in a quicker and efficient way.
Boards help to categorize design variations into different groups. A single DesignCollab project can have multiple boards for approval. For Example: A website design project will have boards for “Logo”, “Background Image”, “Contact Form”, “Page Design”…
Each Board can have an approver who will select the best design in that board. For instance: An Approver will review and pick the best logo in the list of logo design variations.
As Designs are also about versioning, everything can be sorted in a DesignCollab Project. Boards can be sorted in order, design variations inside each board can be sorted and also design variations can be moved between boards
The new DesignCollab app adds 2 more comparison modes for comparing designs in addition to the existing side-by-side mode.
Side-by-Side mode: Compare designs next to each other
Overlay mode: Compare designs one on top of another with transparency
Diff Mode: Will visually show the differences between variations
Export to PDF:
Each board in a project can be exported to a PDF that will help in documenting your design process for future reference and will also facilitate in offline sharing by printing the document
Apart from the above mentioned features, DesignCollab has received a complete UI overhaul including Chat, Activity listing and dashboard.

We are pleased to announce the immediate availability of Google Chrome browser extension for MockFlow AnnotatePro.
This extension helps to take screenshots of web pages and uploads the image seamlessly to the AnnotatePro web editor where the user can markup the image or make it interactive. And then instantly share the annotation by generating URL.

The latest release of BannerPro introduces a new feature called “TimerGraph”. As seen in the picture above TimerGraph provides an interactive visualisation of the effect timeline of the banner. Previously to choreograph an effect sequence users had to manually calculate and set the delay and duration of the effects in the banner. Now using the “TimerGraph” users not only have a full view of the effect sequence but also can edit the timeline of effects within the graph. In short, TimerGraph helps users to sequence the banner effects in a faster and visual way.
MockFlow BannerPro has been updated with the following major changes last week:
Themes – All shape components have a new button in settings panel called “Themes”. Themes help to quickly set flat or modern gradient colors with less tweaking.
Navigation Component – A new component has been added to the BannerPro library. The navigation component provides a list of buttons helpful in navigating slideshows.
Push Transition – Transition provides motion when user navigates from one slide to another. A new transition called ‘Push’ provides slide based motion, useful when creating interactive slideshows.
The latest WebsitePro update includes a new small but useful feature in Pages called “Services”. The “Services” is a curated catalog of web applications that can be embedded in your website for various purposes such as ‘Forms’, ‘Analytics’, ‘Comments’, ‘Chat’, ‘Slideshows’…. As WebsitePro helps to build pure static websites without any server overhead, these services help to add more functionality to your websites with less work.
We are excited to announce the latest release of MockFlow AnnotatePro with two new features
1) Animated Components – Animated components help in identifying interactions for the user. There are two animated components – Pulsating Circle and Radiating Circle.
2) Drawing – This was a long asked feature. Now you can draw over the image to annotate it. The draw tool comes with line thickness and color.
With this release, AnnotatePro has become a comprehensive solution for annotating images, making interactive images and a collaborative tool for discussing images.
