Perfect mockup and wireframe tool
Kommentare: * Used it to mock up a web applications, several are rather complex and have between 15-45 pages. * Currently using it to mock up a massive CMS project. * It really is a fantastic tool. Very intuitive if you've use any type of mockup/wireframe tool.
Vorteile: * Shocked that I'd never encountered this tool before as I've gone on numerous googlefu missions in search of the better mockup/wireframe app. Lucid Chart, Balsamiq, Fluid, and a half dozen more that were unremarkable. * No issues with fonts, no crashes, speedy on my 2017 Macbook Pro, and overall a speedy easy to use desktop application. Much better than any Electron based app. * Installed design kits for Sketchy UI, Material design (mobile and desktop), Bootstrap, Gnome3 widgets, GTK widgets, a lovely blue Generic Wireframe, and both Android and iOS wireframe design kits. * Super easy to use. Prototyped a login page, semi-complex main interface, and two secondary pages in about 20 minutes. * Exports PNG, PDF, SVG, ODT, and single web page. Zeor issues with the export formats and I tested all of them. * I found it to be the perfect tool.
Nachteile: * Nothing. I have zero complaints and still surprised that such a high quality open source tool has flown under the radar for so long.

Create flowcharts, mockups and interfaces quickly and easily
Vorteile: Pencil project is an Open Source software with multiplatform support It has an important library of shapes for the creation of models and interfaces, with the look and feel of the most popular systems and platforms such as Android, IOS and Windows. It has extensions to be worked from the web browser Mozilla Firefox allows linking between the sheets of a project to optimally simulate the browsing experience between the screens of the model
Nachteile: As graphical elements are inserted in the multiple sheets of the documents tends to put the software slower

Great, free way to generate quick UI mockups
Kommentare: If you need to get a quick UI design out, this is a good option. However, it has not been kept up to date since 2013 so the mockups are not up to date with the latest UI trends. You will not want to share your mockups with a customer, but can be used to spread ideas internally.
Vorteile: This product is free and available on many different operating systems (Mac, Windows, Linux). It has a short learning curve and is very easy to get up to speed with.
Nachteile: It does feel a bit dated now for iOS application mockups. The latest stencils/templates are from ~2013 so the iOS designs are dated. Also the Windows templates are old as well.

One of the best mockup tools around
Vorteile: Not the most feature-rich or easiest mockup tool around, but boy does it make up for it by being open source. No free trials or elapsed subscriptions, no budget approvals, no limitations on the number of mockups or the people you can share it with. Just download, install and do mockups.
Nachteile: Could be easier to use and it should be able to hook up to a more extensive online shapes library. But honestly, if you need more then graduate to other apps. Just know that whatever you do in Pencil will always be accessible.

Excellent tool for product managers
Kommentare: Phenomenal. I wish the project was alive and improving. I am not familiar with any other tool that quite fits this space so well.
- Easy to use
- Most of the required functionality with no fluff for developing wireframes
- Does not impose the design-related overhead that many product managers do not want to deal with
- Provides incredibly functional clickable wireframes for having meaningful discussions with designers and engineers
- Little quirks that have not ironed out yet
- Feels like the project has died -- which is a real pity. It was right on target for the group of product who want to develop clarity about the the product usage without getting bogged down by complex design tools.

Easy for design
Kommentare: I love using Pencil for the initial mock-up of a project. I can work quickly, and get the printout to all of my coworkers for input.
Vorteile: Pencil is easy to use and allows me to design new screens and websites simply. It's perfect for creating mock-ups. It's quick, easy, and gets the job done.
Nachteile: Pencil is a little limited in what you can add to your mock-up. They have some great options, but sometimes you wish they had more to offer.

Pencil for Project Visuals
Kommentare: Designed a small app for android using kivy/python base. Easy to use! Very nice and extensive template library .. more than I would need.
Vorteile: Very easy to use, nice format and good functions ... I'm only using this for GUI design and interaction definitions.
Nachteile: Difficult to control or specify canvas size .. printing functions do not allow resizing of canvas to allow printing of specific areas of the design. Maybe I'm missing something here but the documentation is focused upon developers and not users so much.

Great open source, lightweight mockup tool
* Great interoperability by exporting to pdf
* Same functions I would have with draw.io or omni tools
* Solid desktop app
Nachteile: You get what you pay for with the free app. Not much for customer support or trainings. Best for those who have used mind mapping, org charts or other diagramming tools before.

For making quick mockups
Vorteile: As a coder I'm always on the lookout for time saving tools. After running into Pencil a few months ago my search for a mockup maker is complete. As with most free software, the instructions are a bit unclear. But, after a bit of a leaning curve I fell right into using Pencil for nearly all my mockups. It's a great piece of software.
Nachteile: A bit of a challenge to setup and get a feel for Pencil's capabilities. But, that bit of time is nothing compared to the time saved using this software.
