Blueprint is the most powerful iPhone (or iPad) UI design application.
Blueprint has many predesigned widgets, including all the iOS views, controls, and buttons. With just a few taps, drags and drops, you can make a meaningful UI screen.
Tap or drag and drop a widget that you want to add to a screen.
Make your widget look great by changing properties—colors, shape, text, images, and so on—in Property Inspector.

Send your UI design by email or export it in a PDF file to share it with your team members.

Ratings and Reviews
I wanted to like it but...
This app has a lot of features no other mockup app has. Undo being the biggest advantage over other apps. It's very easy to use and easy to learn. Almost no coaching required. I was designing interfaces quickly and was happy as a clam, then I came to a screeching halt! I keep running up against the "this does not work in the lite version" message. That's really where this app fails, at least this version. I really liked this app until then. I cant understand why anyone would put out a lite version that doesn't allow you to use all the features? This is most notable on the Image, Image Sources screens. Limit the app in some other way. Number of screens maybe, don't disable the very features you are trying to promote. It makes no sense. There is absolutely no way I'm going to part with $20 for the full version of an app I can't try out. That's a lot of money for an app. (at least for me it is) Maybe it's worth it? Maybe not? For $20 I guess I'll never know.
Impressive App but Unstable
I would easily give this 5 stars on the feature set of this app but it loses one star because of more than infrequent crashes--3 crashes in the last hour alone. I'm on iOS 6 on the latest iPad. Fortunately I have lost very little work after a crash. I DO like this app. I am impressed that the app just disappears and allows me to just think and dink with my user experience. I do wish some of the controls were "smarter" so you wouldn't have to duplicate screens to show small changes in UI state. For example, the On/Off control is mostly just used in changing settings--it usually does not activate a whole new view of your app. Would be nice to toggle the control without having to duplicate a view just with the toggle state changed. It would also be nice to have a functional slider control. Of course, I'm also asking for a richer message set along with more life like controls. for example, having something like a swipe action for the slider control so I could go somewhere in the UI based upon the slider value rather than simulating a swipe with multiple screens with the slider showing different amounts "of slide". The downside of having life-like controls of course is more complexity but for professional UI designers like me, I could more efficiently simulate my user experience with less copy and paste of static displays. I'm really not complaining, this is really a very nice piece of work stability issues aside.
I can't believe how great this light version. It's not light at all. There is a bit of friction with the interface at first, but you get the hang of it pretty quickly. I've been eager for an app that I could truly be productive with, and this is it.
Some features I'd like to see include: interface themes, because I get stuck on making visual design decisions and would like some sort of clean/wireframey style so my clients and I could just focus on navigation and IA. Second, a preloaded library of screen templates to speed up the workflow on common design patterns. Lastly, scrolling.
Thanks for a great app!
