Don’t Just Wireframe – Tell The Design Story

via @marcintreder

I’m thinking in today’s world it’s almost impossible to create great product without caring about user experience and succeed.
Wireframes, mock-ups and prototypes are excellent and useful documentation. Make them and don’t be ashamed.

Create a design story for your product.

Flowella – AIR-based design tool for prototyping mobile apps

Flowella is a simple, AIR-based design tool that allows you to quickly create prototypes without writing a single line of code. If you are user experience designer or visual designer, this tool can help you. But since it’s from Nokia it supports Symbian devices right now (e.g. 5800, N97, etc). The program outputs Flash Lite or WRT for the interaction mockups.

“Flowella is an easy to use tool that enables designers and developers to create design prototypes — without writing a line of code.
Prototypes are built using images of screen mock-ups and defining links between the screens. This information is then used to create an Adobe Flash Lite 3.0 application or Web Runtime (WRT) widget. These applications can then be run on one of over seventy Nokia devices or in a simulator supplied with Flowella, enabling the application interaction to be assessed.
