Hello,
I was wondering if, now that adobe Air is available for Android, you will be making Mockups available via the Android Market place?
Thanks
Jason

Would be great to get an Android app to allow us to at least view our mockups on the go.

Yes, please spend 2 hours to investigate porting Mockups to Air on Android. If you see it's difficult, leave it for later. If you see it's easy, let us know where to find it in the market :-)

This would be great. I could loose my notebook then. I sync with Dropbox so viewing exported .PDF's are no problem but to edit would be great.

There is a third-party utility to do this called "Mockups2Android":

I haven't used it yet but it looks promising.

Looks nice but not what the OP was asking for. The question is how to run Balsamiq on Android not convert mockups to Android view xml definitions.

Yes, I was responding more to Rob's comment "Would be great to get an Android app to allow us to at least view our mockups on the go."

Also, the utility I linked to is a viewer for BMML files - it is not a converter to Android view definitions. I think there's a tool to do that too, but it's not M2A.

BTW, had a chance to download and briefly try out M2A.. it seems to be based on the iPhone outline template being placed correctly and doesn't seem to work on a Galaxy Tab. I just get blank screens.. it is a prerelease so if you're reading this in 2012 or something, please find a newer review.. promising tool but I haven't been able to get it to work yet.

I would love to see Balsamiq on Android, particularly for Honeycomb. I have an android 3.0 tablet and I'm sure Balsamiq would rock on there :)

+1 for Android Gingerbread and +1 for Honeycomb (+1 for iPad2 as well while we're at it).

I believe there's immense value in being able to prototype iteratively with a tool like this right when you're with a customer, using your tablet or large screen smartphone and getting instant feedback. Will be an absolute hit whenever it launches.

+1 for Android - related question, will myBalsamiq run on an Android Browser? Perhaps that is the answer. I don't know because I didn't get into the private beta for myBalsamiq

Hi Scott, I just tried it. It sort-of works, double-tapping doesn't map to double-click for some reason so it's hard to edit labels... :( We'll take a look!

+1 for android tablet... I use other apps to mockup ideas using my tablet now, but I have to re do them in balsamiq if we decide to explore the idea further. It would certainly be more convenient.

so +1 for android

The web demo almost works perfectly on my Toshiba folio 100. It crashed when you tried to go down the page with a physical mouse attached, but worked perfectly when just using my finger.

After having shown my new boss how much better it is to demo a web design in Balsamiq than photoshop (we did both and Balsamiq recieved no stupid questions) both he and I want it on a Android tablet.

Being able to pass it back and forth to work on a mock up would rock.

so +1 for android.

UPDATE - as noted before the online version doesn't allow for editing text - such as button etc... maybe an extra button in the properrties would get over this i.e. to duplicate the double click.

+1 for android.
I've recently got a Motorola Xoom, that I'd love to use as a blackboard for designing applications on my job. I've been using balsamiq for a while, so +1 for android.
