Best ways to wireframe iPhone apps

User demands as well as requirements have to be deeply considered when developing mobile applications or iPhone apps. Apple has a high standard set for its apps and as such a lot of thought along with planning has to be invested to ensure the success of the apps. To make the design process successful, the app building must be properly planned as well as wireframed. Proper wireframing helps save money regarding development as well as design, build functionality along with structure, gather effectively invaluable early feedback and expand basic initial ideas. Given below are some ideas that will help you in this process. However, the very first thing that needs to be done here is downloading the iPhone Wireframe UI Kit which is available in dark blue, beige and blueprint varieties.

If you are confident then use real grids and dimensions. Try to determine realistically the amount of content that can be fitted in a single screen as that makes or even breaks the concept. If there is time constraint, then it is best to be as close to the actual product as possible. High fidelity mockups can have a huge influence on other decisions like content fitness, navigation complexity, overall value, usability, etc.

App views planning- Any design may have various kinds of views. Content, photo gallery, table listing, numerical dial pad, etc may be included in the app. While designing, think what will be needed; it may be a good idea to actually make a list of the things which must be included in it. Start from root view, or in other words, the very first view that is seen by users after they have downloaded the application. Remember that the list of views needed by the app should feature only unique interfaces.

Colors- Efficient wireframes generally favor the use of subtle tones like soft blues or gray. Idealistically speaking, the shades should be consistent as well as neutral so that the strong colors do not distract and the structure is the main point of focus. Determining the varying use of colors may be difficult, so use it at your own discretion, and at your own risk. Create a color structure and according to that change or alter the hues so that they suit your taste.

User interface- There is no need of interactivity for creation of good iPhone app but majority of them include that. So plan out how to provide it. The very few elements needed are keyboard and popup modal messages. Plan about the different kinds of submit buttons as well as e-mail fields, password, username. Use appropriate labels as well to explain users the kind of information to be inlcuded. The design often includes icons; you can choose standard icons for representation of key actions. Also you should have a clear idea about the actual dimensions for the buttons.

Fonts- The kind of font to be used is also a decision to be taken. Generally Helvetica Neue is used on iOS. In fact, by default it is available on Mac. Android users can use Roboto as well. The typography is not a section for you to worry about; Blokk font may be used with irregular blocks representing text. To stop it from looking strange, the perfect line-height and font size must be set.

Some of the tools which may help you in this endeavor are Wireframe.CC, Fluid UI, Balsamiq, HotGloo, MockApp, Proto.IO and Framer. All of these help you out, making the wireframe designing an incredible as well as fulfilling process. It also makes the entire process simple. You get a chance to realize how the creation will actually look and feel but without any restrictions related to finer-detail elements, paving the way for an easy development cycle, by understanding the required elements for good programming.
