Zooka, a neat iPad Bluetooth speaker, and a review of tools to wire-framing user interfaces

Mark Gibbs | June 6, 2013
This week, a collection of goodies. First up for all of you iPad aficionados, a neat wireless Bluetooth speaker called Zooka from Carbon Audio that fits onto the edge of your tablet and boosts your audio volume by about five times (turned up full, that's a sound pressure of 80dB at 1 meter). There's also a built-in microphone so you can take calls if you've paired the Zooka with your iPhone.

Those complaints aside, of all of the wire-framing tools I've looked at so far, Balsamiq Mockups is by far the best. The desktop version is priced at $79; the myBlasamiq Web version starts at $12 per month for three active projects, unlimited mockups and unlimited users; and the plugins are priced as low as $50 per year for Google Drive. Balsamiq Mockups gets 5 Gearhead stars out of 5. Now, back to selling the vision to the clients!
