10 Essential Toolkits for iPad Wireframing

by on 09/22/11 at 1:23 pm

As the demand for iPad applications increase, more and more designers will need to wireframe for the iPad. There’s no better way to speed up your wireframing process than to use a user interface tookit. These toolkits have all the standard iPad interface elements pre-designed for you. They’ll save you time and energy from creating standard iPad elements so that you can focus on designing the structure, organization and layout of your iPad application. These toolkits would not be made possible without the toolkit creators, so a big thank you goes out to them.

    I run a website which mocks up HTML prototypes primarily for mobile devices. It might be useful if you want to go the HTML route instead of a native app.

    The site is http://www.mobjectify.com, let me know what you think.

    Will it work on iPhone 4 as well? I`m having bit of difficulties regarding this issue on the iPhone.

    Shameless plug but here’s a link to an iPad sketchbook that I designed that’s free for download.


    The iPad Application Sketchbook is a 16 page template based sketchbook. The 9 x 7 inch landscape yields plenty of space making it easier to sketch out ideas for your next big projects.

    This sketchbook contains a combination of the following:

    – Vertical templates
    – Horizontal templates
    – Icon templates
    – Note pages
    – Sketch pages
    – Checklist
