Storyboarding with Visual Studio 2012

Visual Studio 2012 Ultimate comes bundled with a new PowerPoint Storyboard feature that includes all kind of useful SharePoint, Windows, Web, etc. shapes that you can use in any Office document. Storyboarding will help to design better software and create rapidly prototype layouts and UI elements without the amibiguity of scribbling on a white board or at the other end of the spectrum, making an actual page/application mockup with real control and UI elements.

With this storyboard authoring tool in VS 2012 you can build a storyboard from a collection of pre-defined storyboard shapes and capture existing user interfaces. Also, you can customize the layouts of your web, client, or phone applications, and link the storyboard to a work item stored in Visual Studio Team Foundation Server 2012.
