In my previous blog, I have tried to focus on some of the key aspects of designing wireframes for mobile apps. The indispensable need of mobile app wireframe can never be denied. The process follows mocking up and the prototyping of the design. Now, having known the three initial processes of wireframe design, let us look into the other subsequent procedures involved in an app wireframe design process.

Having known the specifications of your wireframe design and creating the screen list, the next way to proceed is through either of the two procedures described below:-


  • Use a pencil or pen to sketch and manually locate every component of wireframe on the paper.
  • Alternatively, you can use wireframing tools to create digital wireframes such as image editing software like Adobe Photoshop, or an specific dedicated wireframing application such as Axure, Sketch, Omnigraffle, or Balsamiq Mockups etc.


The process of wireframing for a website or a mobile app may depend on your personal convenience. However, modern wireframing tools for wireframing, mocking up and prototyping have made it quite simpler to design wireframes for mobile apps.

Seek Your Team’s opinion

Seek Your Team’s opinion

Once you have decided what procedure you are about to follow for mobile app wireframe design, you need to seek opinion from your teammates and colleagues who can possess their honest opinion about the sketched or digitally generated wireframe.


This is one of the most crucial phase of mobile UX wireframing that suggests a number of new ideas and modifications required to ease the further development task.


Prototyping Your Design Project

Now, it’s time to put your proposed mobile design into the test by creating a digital prototype based on your wireframes. Prototyping allows you with the opportunity to get your hands on with how your app design looks and functions on a the end device. It also lets you evaluate how your design works across multiple screen configurations.

Prototyping is a powerful tool in the app designing department, but let’s not get carried away when your screen contains a number of variable elements. There is no way through which you can prototype every single version of a screen.
