User interface mockups (UI mockups) are not only useful for usability testing purposes. Mockups can also give your team, client base and design department a clear view of your product or service to aid recognition and to ensure that any future designs fit in with, or add to, your original design. A mockup is a visual example of exactly what your brand entails. It incorporates your name, logo and chosen colours, all the way down to the smaller details like font, font size, icons and layout.
We have selected a range of apps that make mockup creation simple and straightforward. All of the applications listed here have been tested and reviewed. We have even added a short description so you can scroll through and shortlist the ones most appropriate to your requirements.
Some of these applications can be used for more specific design purposes, such as a draft version of a book cover, for example. Many of them are specifically for screenshot mockups. Most offer a wide range of templates on which you can base your website design, if you prefer to leave the more creative side of things to someone else.
