The wireframe is an important part of any design process. Wireframe tools are popular these days as they are a crucial aspect of the whole design thinking process. Before going into depth about what all wireframes are popular these days, let us get a rough idea of what exactly wireframe tools are.

What is a wireframe?

A wireframe is a skeletal outline of a web page or an application. A wireframe is drawn by hand or created digitally to give a rough idea of the graphics, fonts, color palette, look, feel, and functionality of the page or the app. It is a process to outline a sketch of the initial ideas by the designers before it is sent to the development team to back it up with a functional code.

A wireframe tool is a crucial part of the design process. It is in the exploratory phase of the product’s life cycle. There are several wireframe tools available on the Internet but these stand out amongst all!
