Windows Phone has been growing steadily since its launch in late 2010. The OS has great features and is capable of being among the top 3 players of the smartphone business.

There are already some really good and well-designed apps on the Marketplace. Every developer wants to make a unique app which is different from the others, yet very useful and attractive to get many downloads hits on the Marketplace. Design of your app plays a vital role in the download of your app. Surely, each one of you has a plan on how to go about the designing of your app so as to make it as user-friendly and dynamic looking as possible.

While designing, creating Windows Phone Mock Ups or Prototyping is an important step in designing your WP7 app. Mock ups or Prototypes help you in deciding on the appearance, navigation, task flows, and custom controls for your app.

Developers might also want to just create wireframes to pitch for an app development proposal – this again requires you to create Windows Phone Mock-ups to showcase your idea to the clients/others.

There could be many more reasons for developers to want to create mock-ups for their apps.

Yalla Apps has found some Windows Phone 7 Mockup and Wire framing resources that might help our developer/designer community. These are excellent collections of prototyping, sketching and mockup tools for your Windows Phone.

We hope our designers cum developers find these useful 🙂

You can also simply Bing ‘windows phone 7 mockups/prototyping’ or ‘wireframe resources/software/tool’ – the results are just too many!
