        Yes, these OWN. These will appear on a local San Diego news channel in the graphics (HD), and I donated to the sites from which I downloaded. Good times.

    Check out http://pencil.evolus.vn/ it’s just great. Our company (9 developers) use it to create wireframes and even final screens since about 2 months and it’s just great. Open Source, available as Firefox Plugin, easy to modify and extend, and of course running on OSX, Linux and Windows.

    That Android template is old and has desperately needed to be updated for well over a year now. I don’t understand why it’s still posted.

    April ’09 – v1.5 — The template
    Sep ’09 – v1.6
    Oct ’09 – v2.0
    Nov ’09 – v2.1
    May ’10 v2.2 — still being rolled out to some devices
    End of 2010 v2.6 (not far away)

    Ultimately, you’re better off using the VDM to export the current versions images for popular resolutions, rather than trying to build themes and apps based on the very obsolete 1.5.

    No love for Visio, huh? I know there are many graffleheads out there, but I can make Visio sing so well OG isn’t needed or any better for me.

    Also, what about the UNIFY framework for wireframes AND deliverables from EightShapes? *like*

    I thought wireframes were just a quick sketch, mostly black and white and possibly hand drawn. I don’t think this pixel-perfect stuff helps in UI design.

    My wife and i got delighted Raymond managed to complete his basic research through your precious recommendations he grabbed using your web page. It’s not at all simplistic to simply possibly be giving for free guidelines which often other people have been trying to sell. And we also fully grasp we need you to thank for that. All the explanations you made, the easy web site menu, the relationships you will give support to engender – it’s many terrific, and it’s letting our son and our family do think the topic is cool, and that is quite fundamental. Thank you for everything!
