iphonemockupSo you have a killer idea for an iPhone app, but when you describe it to people they just don’t get it. Maybe you have a client that is a visual thinker and needs you to draw it out for him. That’s when wireframes, mockups and stencils can be your saving grace.

There are many different types of tools available to developers, from low-tech stencil kits to high-tech collaborative software. So I’ve rounded up a few of the more popular ones people are using specifically for iPhone development. It’s far from being the definitive list, but it’s definitely a good place to start.

 


Low Tech Solutions

Mockingbird is a web based mockup/wireframe tool built using the Cappucino framework, so there’s no flash to wrestle with.

iPhone mockup is a web based tool that is currently in Alpha release only. You can design your mockup as a hand sketch or illustration, and mockups can contain user-uploaded images and user-entered text. Your mockups will be accessible via url so they are unsecured.

The developer makes this perfectly clear and warns that he could discontinue hosting mockups at anytime, thereby deleting any work. That makes this a handy tool for quick and dirty mockups you want to print or share with someone on the fly, but not for much more.

    I just wanted to add that the pidoco° wireframing tool listed above has also some usability testing features included that help designers to get their concepts right the first time.

    Make a concept, get feedback from experts or users, redesign the wireframe and then start pogramming! Avoid cost for later changes just because the users do not find the checkout button. :-)

    StencilsApp (http://www.stencilsapp.com/) is a powerful design tool to sketch or mock up iPhone app ideas directly on the iPhone.

    Anyone with an idea for an app can mock up an interactive prototype of their idea on the iPhone itself using StencilsApp, without writing any code.

    Sketches can behave like a “live app” by linking multiple screens through touch actions and gestures. Check out this video of a sketch of the iPhone Calendar app : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ncpQ4zVy2LY.

    I am an interface designer myself. Putting all the screens in a PDF and hyperlinking the pages is the way to go I think. It’s quick and you can use your favourite design tool, scans, whatever.
    Put hyperlinks over screens/buttons in Acrobat, or use Indesign, Keynote…

    Especially for that use-case there is a little app: http://www.link-viewer.com

    “Hi all,
    Can I request you to consider MockupTiger in your review process. It is a great new web application designed using HTML5. You can use it on desktop or host it on your domain/intranet. It is the only tool allows to prototype dashboard charts with actual data (not just static images) and contains a library of charts. Choose between hand drawn look or normal, choose your own font and skin color or draw color.”

    I highly recommend Keynotopia (Keynotopia.com). Awesome templates for use with Keynote (mac), PowerPoint (mac + PC) or OpenOffice (PC, Mac, Linux). With the new versions you can turn wireframes into pixel perfect, ready to be developed apps! LOVE how much time I saved with my first iPhone app :)
