Tools for Creating iPhone Wireframes – OmniGraffle iPhone Stencils

Thu, Oct 16

Editor’s Note: There is an update to this post as of October 2009 with an additional stencil. You can read the newest post here: Tools for Creating iPhone Wireframes – OmniGraffle iPhone Stencils – Update Oct 2009

I’m in the midst of creating a set of wireframes for a client for an upcoming iPhone application. I started with Photoshop, however, I’ve always found OmniGraffle to be a very simple and intuitive application to use and figured I owed it to myself to give this tool a spin as well.

Stencil Option #1
I went on a search for a stencil (OmniGraffle speak for template) that focused specifically on iPhone application design. One of the first hits was a stencil created by Theresaneil, the stencil is located here. This is a nice, no thrills stencil for quick mock up of applications.

As I looked a little further I ran into two additional stencils:

Stencil Option #2
Patrick Crowley (creator of Graffletopia) created the stencil below:

Stencil Option #3
Yahoo also has a stencil for OmniGraffle:

Once I’ve had a chance to try these out, I’ll report back…

Nice find! … I use OmniGraffle all the time … and I prefer to use it rather than Photoshop to concept out applications.

Hi,
I tried to install option #2 several times, but couldn’t open in Onmigraffle.

Do you know why?
I am using Omnigraffle 5.1 on a mac

Thanks,
Ling
