What is an app wireframe?

Similar to website wireframing, app wireframes are used to visually represent a mobile app’s interface, as well as how users will interact with it.

An app wireframe is a straightforward and simple way to iterate mobile apps. You can use it to allocate on-screen elements such as content and navigation, allowing you in turn to organize and plan the app production more efficiently.

When to use an app wireframe template

Teams can use app wireframes at the early stages of an app’s development to determine the flow and functionality of a mobile app. With an app wireframe, you can ensure that the app’s user flow is smooth and that all necessary functionality is in place before you start investing in development or producing content. The goal of an app wireframe is to align on how the app will function and what each element will look like.

Create your own mobile app wireframe

You can make your mobile app wireframe quickly with Miro’s whiteboard tool. Get started by selecting the App Wireframe template, then take the following steps: 

Step 1: Be clear about your mobile application goals. Before you start wireframing, discuss with your team your goals and what you hope to accomplish by creating this mobile app wireframe. 

Step 2: Map out the user flow and experience. When your user interacts with your mobile app, they’re taking a journey. Consider the information presented on each app screen and how users will interact with it. You’ll also want to think about how a mobile app’s screen size is smaller than that of a webpage, so the presentation of content should match accordingly.

Step 3: Start filling in content to determine if the intended copy will fit the app design. In general, real content generates better feedback, so it’s best to use real content and not just placeholder texts at this stage.

Step 4: Annotate. Since there will be multiple stakeholders involved, don’t assume that your mobile app wireframe speaks for itself. Annotate as you work on your wireframe to make it easier to receive feedback and stay aligned.

Timelines enable teams to see at a glance what happened before, what progress is happening now, and what needs tackling in the future. Projects or products with specific purpose or deliverables should be based on a timeline to be successful. Use the timeline as a shared reference for start dates, end dates, and milestones.
