Moving towards our goal to bring seamless brainstorming of UI ideas everywhere, we are now officially launching an offline only desktop app for Mac OS. MockFlow is now available as a standalone wireframing app in Mac App Store.

This app follows the same DNA of our main platform sans the cloud and brings in the top notch features such as easy-to-use editor, specs mode, preview, numerous components, annotations...etc.

We recommend this standalone app for users who only wants offline mode, and businesses who do not support third-party servers due to firewall restrictions.

Open: App Store Link

Note 1: As a standalone app, it requires a separate license that has to be purchased from Mac App Store.

Note 2: Cloud features are disabled or not present in this app. As it focuses on offline and file based saving.
