More than just wireframing software
Create wireframes, mockups, and so much more
Balsamiq is ideal for creating wireframes—its users are limited to only that type of visual. Lucidchart users can create wireframes and mockups, plus flowcharts, mind maps, org charts, timelines, network diagrams, and so much more.
Integrate with industry-leading apps
Offering only integrations with Atlassian and Google Drive, Balsamiq gives few opportunities for users to connect to other software. Lucidchart offers the same integrations, plus additional integrations with G Suite, Microsoft Office, GitHub, and Slack, and other leading apps.
Leverage advanced features for easier diagramming
Lucidchart includes automated diagramming, data linking, conditional formatting, and other advanced functionality, with new features being added and refined every day. Balsamiq’s advanced features are limited to low-fidelity wireframes.
Easily collaborate with teams and stakeholders
Balsamiq offers basic collaborative functionality, including @mention comments. Lucidchart takes collaboration a step further with in-editor chat, collaborative cursors, thorough revision history, and more.
Diagram from any device, anytime
Lucidchart lets you access and share your diagrams from anywhere, regardless of your operating system. With the Lucidchart app for iOS and Android, users can also diagram from any tablet or mobile device. Balsamiq users can only work on their desktops.
