iMockups for iPad review

For any software developer who creates wireframes, iMockups is well worth a look. The app lets you quickly and easily create wireframes for web projects and iOS apps.

You begin by creating a blank project. You can then add pages and add pre-built website and iOS elements. After dragging an element onto a project, tapping it brings up the action bar where you can copy, clone and delete, etc. You can lock an item and group multiple items, and the powerful Info option lets you modify the properties of the selected item.

There’s also a presentation mode for connecting your iPad to a bigger screen.  

When exporting your project, you can convert it to .jpg, .pdf, or .bmml (Balsamiq Mockups) format or save it as an iMockups file. Exporting a single page allows you to choose .png format or to save the image to your photo library.

iMockups lets you whip wireframes for everything from apps to websites from the comfort of your iPad

Oddly, you can only share your work via email. Dropbox support should be a given, so hopefully the developer has this option on the drawing board (no pun intended). Exporting a project in Balsamiq Mockups format is useful, but text elements are sometimes incomplete and font-size adjustments are often needed. Also, it isn’t possible to import Balsamiq files into iMockup.

OUR VERDICT

Nonetheless, iMockups works very well to create and present basic wireframe models.
