Prototyping your app idea with an iOS mockup tool is the most important step in the app creation process, allowing you to brainstorm functionality and better communicate to your team exactly how the app works. Edraw software is an iPhone wireframe tool for both “idea people” and experienced designers and developers.

Steps to Wireframe a Simple iPhone Design

Focus on User Experience. Wireframes should be as bare as possible. That is because you want your client to judge the user experience rather than the look. Using real dimensions and grids can be good, do it only if you have confidence. Knowing realistically how much content can fit in a single screen can make or break a concept. From my experience, within the constraint of time, the closer you can get to the real product the better. That is because being in front of a high-fidelity mockup can largely influence important product decisions such as navigation complexity, content fit, usability, overall value, etc. I try to look at all my designs from my phone's screen simply because the experience can be dramatically different from looking at mockups in low resolution from a computer screen.

Colors. The most efficient wireframes I've seen use subtle tones of gray or blue. Ideally, the shades should be neutral and consistent so that you can focus on the structure and not be distracted by strong colors. Since colors can be hard to master, use real colors at your own risk.

Icons. Since user interface design can often make use of icons, don't be shy to pick standard icons to represent key actions. It can help make the decisions of either going text only, icon only or text with icon. By now, you should have gathered a nice collection of icon sets that will help you brush through this process with ease.
