Paper and prototypes are both indecline for the moment in the design world, especially as designing in the browser becomes a popular concept amongst Web developers. For some, drawing with a pad and pen doesn’t suit them well, but the truth is, it’s still one of the best ways to execute your ideas.
For centuries, the best designers that ever existed relied upon these prematurely antiquated tools, so don’t get smug — thinking drawing your ideas on a pad can’t help. What’s missing is an easy way to bring the casual sketch to life.
Amid a myriad of prototyping tools, POP, an iPhone app made by Woomoo, has effectively popped right into my homescreen as an insanely useful way to explore user experience problems and share iPhone app concepts with others. Simply sketch out your idea, take a few pictures and then link buttons to create a functioning mock-up that can be shared across Twitter, Facebook, messages and email.
