Are Updates for Mockups 3 for Desktop Free?
Updating from any version of Mockups for Desktop to Mockups 3 for Desktop is free. Minor-version updates are also free (so 3.2, 3.3, etc.). There are no maintenance or renewal costs in order to keep using the software. Details about how to update are found here.
What Will the Costs Be When You Release Balsamiq Wireframes for Desktop?
Major-version updates will have an additional cost. As updates are not required, you will be able to continue to use version 3 if you don't wish to purchase a major version update.
We will continue to offer support for version 3 for at least 12 months after Wireframes for Desktop is released. However, historically we have continued to support versions for much longer than the minimum time noted in our EULA. We are currently still supporting customers who have chosen to keep using version 2, even though version 3 was released in March 2015.
While we do no have an exact date available for the release of Balsamiq Wireframes for Desktop, we're hoping to release sometime in mid-2019. The price of the new version will be the same as Mockups 3 for Desktop, and existing licensed users will have the option to purchase the update at a discount.
