A few months doesn’t seem like very long to look for changes in the landscape of wireframing apps for the iPad. But this is the App Store where life moves fast. In the realm of apps for wireframing, those reviewed last time around have made steady progress while a snappy new player has entered the field to challenge their early dominance.
A week into having an iPad in my tool (and toy) lineup I’m still sussing out what aspects of work this new beast can take on, and what parts are still best suited to my main workhorse, a 15″ Macbook Pro. As my work involves a fair bit of wireframing, I was keen to see if the touch interface could serve as an effective design tool.
Two early contenders have popped up in the App Store to meet that need and I’ve spent a few hours with each of them, with some mixed results that other iPad early adopters may find useful: Omnigraffle and iMockups.
The reviews here have been updated to reflect recent developments.
