Ratings and Reviews
Unfortunately, they should have released this first version as free until they got to the point that it really had true value. The concept is decent, but it is sorely lacking.
You can't alter or move what you create, so once you put something on the screen, you can only undo.
I like the idea of something simple, but it really doesn't have anything to offer over other apps that are free for creating basic drawings.
What even is this?
So I downloaded this thinking I was getting a proper wire framing app. There are so few on the App Store where you can just download and go. This one had frames in it and I was super excited.
I actually downloaded and used it and I hate it. The interface is HORRIBLE. the prospect of using your hand to not only make the shapes but size them at the same time is awkward and you can’t even move them or resize them freely.
One star because it’s something that could be great if more time and thought were put into it, the irony of an app that’s supposed to help with building interfaces has a bad interface is not lost on me either. It’s free but holy crap if I’d spent money on this I’d be mad.
Fun and powerful design tool
Great for quick low-fidelity mockups and workflows! The new features make mobile design work easier. Thank you!
