About the App Wireframe Template
Use an App Wireframe Template to display the interface elements of your mobile app. Product teams can use it to lay out the structure and functionality of a mobile app, showing the user flow and interaction between elements. Miro’s App Wireframe Template helps you structure your mobile app layout, making it easy to manage design and app development from the get-go.
How to use the App Wireframe Template
1. Select the App Wireframe Template
On the left toolbar, browse through the Templates Library and select the App Wireframe Template.
2. Drag and drop your wireframe components
Miro's intuitive drag and drop feature makes adding and moving interface elements around your wireframe on the board easy. Use our robust Wireframe Library with pre-built components and icons to add functionality and visual interest to your app wireframes.
3. Ideate and co-create
Collaborate in real time or async, inviting your team to your board. Request instant feedback with comments directly on the app wireframe, tag stakeholders, and make it easy to iterate as you work on your design.
4. Circulate your app wireframe
Once you've created your app wireframe, export it as a PNG or PDF, or invite others to view and collaborate on the wireframe by sharing the board link.
How Miro helps you create an app wireframe
Do you need help creating a wireframe app with your team? Here is what the process looks like:
Step 1: Define your app's flow
Write down the most important steps of your app's flow. List the key actions for each step. Be clear about your mobile application goals. Before you start wireframing, discuss your goals with your team and what you hope to accomplish by creating this mobile app wireframe; that way, it will be easier to map out the user flow and experience.
Step 2: Sketch your app’s functions
Use the app wireframe template components to sketch what functions need to be visible on the screen in each step. You can also use Miro's Wireframe Library for more components and icons. Users who interact with your mobile app are 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 a webpage, so the content presentation should match accordingly.
Step 3: Add copy
Start filling in the 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 multiple stakeholders will be involved, don’t assume that your mobile app wireframe speaks for itself. Annotate as you work on your app wireframe to make receiving feedback easier and staying aligned.
How do I make a wireframe template for an app?
You can make a mobile app wireframe using our template and customize it as you see fit. You can use Miro’s infinite canvas to mock up the flow between your app screens and have a great overview of your app layout.
What should a wireframe app contain?
An app wireframe template should contain the basic information about your app screens flow as well as how your layout should be designed and where content should sit. There are some elements that a mobile app wireframe should contain: logo, search fields, headers, the body of content, buttons, and footer.
What are some app wireframes examples?
There are three types of app wireframes: low-fidelity, mid-fidelity and high-fidelity. The difference between these app wireframe examples is the level of detailed information they contain about your mobile application.
Works best for:
While storyboard is typically associated with planning out scenes for a movie or TV show, it’s been widely adopted throughout the business world. A storyboard is a sequence of illustrations that are used to develop a story. You can use the Storyboarding template anytime you’d like to really put yourself in a customer or user’s position and understand how they think, feel, and act. This tactic can be especially useful when you know there’s a problem or inefficiency with an existing process. You can storyboard existing processes or workflows and plan how you would like them to look in the future.
Kanban Framework Template
Works best for:
Kanban Boards, Agile Methodology, Agile Workflows
Optimized processes, improved flow, and increased value for your customers — that’s what the Kanban method can help you achieve. Based on a set of lean principles and practices (and created in the 1950s by a Toyota Automotive employee), Kanban helps your team reduce waste, address numerous other issues, and collaborate on fixing them together. You can use our simple Kanban template to both closely monitor the progress of all work and to display work to yourself and cross-functional partners, so that the behind-the-scenes nature of software is revealed.
Card Sorting Template
Works best for:
Desk Research, UX Design, Brainstorming
Card sorting is a brainstorming technique typically used by design teams but applicable to any brainstorm or team. The method is designed to facilitate more efficient and creative brainstorms. In a card sorting exercise, you and your team create groups out of content, objects, or ideas. You begin by labeling a deck of cards with information related to the topic of the brainstorm. Working as a group or individuals, you then sort the cards in a way that makes sense to you, then label each group with a short description. Card sorting allows you to form unexpected but meaningful connections between ideas.
Root Cause Evaluation Template
When you first encounter a complex situation, it's not common to immediately delve into its underlying causes and effects. Often, we grasp the overall picture but fail to separate the problem from its surrounding circumstances. Root Cause Evaluation provides a method to better understand the interconnected factors that have contributed to the current situation.
UML Component Diagram Template
Works best for:
Mapping, Diagrams, Software Development
Use our Component Diagram template to show how a system’s physical components are organized and wired together. Visualize implementation details, make sure planned development matches system needs, and more — all in a collaborative environment.
Customer Touchpoint Map Template
Works best for:
Desk Research, Product Management, Mapping
To attract and keep loyal customers, you have to truly start to understand them—their pain point, wants, and needs. A customer touchpoint map helps you gain that understanding by visualizing the path your customers follow, from signing up for a service, to using your site, to buying your product. And because no two customers are exactly alike, a CJM lets you plot out multiple pathways through your product. Soon you’ll be able to anticipate those pathways and satisfy your customers at every step.
