Rapidly create beautiful, high-fidelity mockups of iOS, iPad and iPhone applications with Mocks. Mocks is a modern, native app for OS X that gives you special tools to design mockups of iOS applications and screens.
Mocks comes with a built-in collection of graphics depicting iOS UI controls and widgets (like buttons, toolbars, and text fields). Drag these controls from the Library palette on the left to the central Canvas area where you compose your mockups. Alignment guides (both automatic, and user-created) help you keep your designs in line.
Every Mocks composition is a multi-page document supporting Apple's iCloud Document Storage, Autosave, Version Browsing, and Full-Screen features in Lion and Mountain Lion. Page thumbnails appear in a vertical palette on the far left of every window, giving you an overview of the contents of all pages simultaneously.
Mocks also includes many of the essential features you expect from a Diagramming or Flowchart application. Including a large collection of shapes, arrows, images, and magnetic lines which automatically resize and move along with the shapes to which they are connected.
Mocks is great for Programmers and Designers looking for a simple tool for quickly designing iOS UI mockups, laying out wireframes, or visualizing model relationships.
Mocks lets you get to work quickly by giving you just the important tools you need in a slick, single-window, thoroughly Mac-native UI.
Easily import graphics and icons by dragging from the Finder, and dropping on the Mocks Canvas.

Great - This app is great - just what I've been looking for. I've tried all sorts of techniques for this: OmniGraffle stencils, Keynote, etc… Never really been happy. This has been working well for me here on the Mac. How about an iPad version, huh? I'd love that… Anyway, well worth it.
Disappoointing - I have tried many mock up and wire freming tools, and had expected much more from the description. The shape selection is limited; there are no icons; and no discernable way to import icon sets. It would also be usefule to be able to set up actions for specific elements. There are superior free products on the market, and if I had it to do over again, I would not have purchased this app.

Good for designing a iPhone App but not iPad - Wish I could get my money back - this app is as basic as it gets and would have been great when the iPhone first came out. Developer really needs to get moving on some updates to the app. Issues I found within 10mins of using the app: No ability to copy and paste image objects from the clipboard? If you are trying to design a iPhone screen - most of the graphic elements don’t stretch - even though it allows you to select an iPad as an option. No actual graphic depicting an iphone or iPad when designing a screen. Honestly dont waste your money - this app needs work.
Good for quick mockups - Within 30 minutes or so I had a 5 page mockup created for an app. I do agree with some of the negatives from other views in the limitations. This could definitely use some additional features, more polish, etc. But for a quick and dirty mockup, it met my requirements. I also appreciated the export to PDF so I can share with my non-mac co-workers (or those that dont have this app). If I were to really get into mobile app development and mockup creation, yes I might look for a different app. But this was totally worth the $10
