A new beginning
…sure feels like one, with a new infrastructure, a fresh set of features and new challenges ahead of us. Let me give you a tour of what you’re seeing in the new Moqups app.
New stuff for everyone
You’ll notice we simplified the interface, in part to make it less intimidating and also to make room for some things that are coming in the following months. In addition:
We consolidated stencil linking and the new Hotspots and added handy keyboard shortcuts. Now you can create interactive areas over the images you upload.
To aid in drawing diagrams and notes, we’ve added diagonal lines and arrowheads for all lines.
Emil created a new image placeholder stencil which now scales nicely.
We added a note stencil to annotate your designs.
We’ve invested a lot of energy in The Perks of Having a Paid Subscription:
Master pages help you set a common base for your pages.
Live collaboration on projects to make teams more efficient (props to teammate Adi).
Unlimited revisions for your projects, for when you want to save snapshots of your progress or branch off in a different direction.
The ability to create projects that are visible only to the collaborators you invite to the project.
Commenting in both the project editor and the viewer.
Unlimited archived projects, to help you manage your project quota.
What happened to “free forever”?
If you’ve been with us before this, you might get the feeling things are somehow restricted. “Don’t mess with the users” was a constant discussion while we navigate the intricacies of making a sustainable product.
New, free users get the chance to use Moqups in a casual manner: two projects and all the features of Moqups v1 and more. But what does the change mean to veteran users? If you had a lot of projects, you will see a message that you’ve exceeded the quota for the free account. Other than that, you can continue to use your existing projects exactly as before, with all the old features enabled. We hope this is a helpful compromise. Drop us a line through the feedback widget or on support at moqups dot com, we would love to know your thoughts on this. Also, we’ve put together a page with questions you might have.
We will continue to improve and add new features to both the free and paid versions of Moqups, based on our internal roadmap and your wonderful suggestions. As always, use the feedback widget and our email addresses to ask us anything.
