Collaborative prototyping with Xiffe

Our Team Plan users can now start collaborating with team members using the team manager dialog. With the latest update of, you can now create prototypes for apps by collaborating online in real time with other team members. We have made a small demo video so you can see how it works.

On the editor, there is a small collaborator icon at the top towards the center where you can see all your collaborators for the selected app. Whenever a collaborator accesses the app you're editing, you get a notification and thereafter your edits to the app can be seen in real time by your team member.

Collaborators can group-chat between them to discuss while they're editing the screens. All your messages are stored at browser end only and live temporarily till you're editing the app - we do not keep a copy of them. This ensures increased safety of your intellectual property as well.

While working in a collaborative environment, there can be various cases where conflicting actions take place on an app screen. We have tried to think of all such use-cases and Xiffe give appropriate directions and notifications to the collaborators for a seamless experience.

We aspire to improve Xiffe each day and bring the best mobile prototyping experience to our users. Do try out this new feature and send us your feedback at

With Love from Xiffe - Look What We Did, the Best Mobile App Wireframe Tool is a very powerful mobile apps prototyping tool. It is the best tool for mobile app wireframe design and prototyping. To demonstrate this we looked as some of the insanely great designed apps on iOS store, Google Play and Windows Marketplace and redesigned those apps using

The results were awesome and show how much an amazing app design tool is. Here are the results. The best part you need not be a designer or know how to code to do this.

Android and Windows Phone prototyping now on Xiffe

We have been working on V2 of Xiffe for few months now. But there was one thing a lot of our clients requested - the support for Android and Windows Phone platforms.

Introducing  v2 on Xiffe - with added support for Android and Windows Phone prototyping.

You can now design app prototypes for iOS, Android and Windows Phone all in one location.

Beside including different platform-specific user controls, we have also included features that are unique to each platform and are an important part of the design process.

For instance, we’ve introduced themes and accent colors for Android and Windows Phone that would create controls with predefined colors for you without having to customize each of them as recommended by these platforms.

Round icons (action buttons) are another set of controls commonly used in Windows Phone apps. Their inclusion in Xiffe lets you focus on the overall layout and look and feel of the app while we do the heavy-lifting for you.

While tab bars and action bars are added for Android, pivots and app bars are made available for Windows Phone apps.

You can see below a small subset of controls that Xiffe has made available for Android and Windows Phone app prototypes.

Xiffe - Getting Started

Welcome to Xiffe. We have tried to make Xiffe easy to use for anyone who knows how to use the internet. We aim to make the tool better using your feedback. Here’s a quick starter guide on how to use Xiffe for prototyping your iOS apps. The tutorial will guide you through the process of deploying fully interactive iOS app prototypes and how you can see the simulation as it would look on an actual iPhone. Xiffe is a web app and you don’t need to install anything or configure your browser to use it. Just login with your account and get started.

For best results, use it on Google Chrome, Apple Safari (version 6.0 or above) or Firefox.

Getting Started

1. After logging in, on the Dashoboard, click + button to get started with designing your first app

2. Give your app a name , select your preferred device (iPhone 5/ iPhone/ iPad) from Device dropdown (iPad option available in pro plans only) and select your preferred Platform - iOS 7 or iOS 6. This will define which controls you see when creating the mocks - flat UI or skeuomorphic graphics.

3. Select your preferred color scheme from predefined color sets for your buttons, backgrounds, titles etc. and save your preference. You can change colors for individual elements within the app. This option just makes sure you don’t need to set the colors for each control. They will all follow your selected theme

Let us select slide animation here as this is the default animation for screen navigation in iOS apps.

2. Select the screen to which you need to navigate from the bottom screen area.

Add a reverse transition link to the back button so that you can traverse back to the originating screen.

Mockup iOS apps in a jiffy

Ever wish you could design your apps and show your clients/colleagues how it would look before it went into development? Wouldn’t it be easy to just drag-drop a few components and get this done instead of using Photoshop or Illustrator or Powerpoint, digging through layers and getting the right components? Xiffe lets you do just that. Create prototypes for your apps in a xiffe (pronounced jiffy) using a simple drag-drop web interface. All your data is stored on the web making it easy to access anywhere on the internet. You can even access the prototypes on your iPhone to see how the app would look on an actual iPhone.

Xiffe Includes:

iOS7  Compatible Design Library

Xiffe provides the complete iOS 7 flat UI library along with the standard skeuomorphic graphical elements:

  • Bars (Status bars, Navigation bars, Toolbars, Tab bars)
  • Buttons
  • Resizable and colorable icons
  • Alert messages
  • Date and time pickers
  • Keyboards
  • Table Views etc.


Unlike most other mockup tools where you can change only basic properties for an element, with Xiffe, you get complete control of the elements to closely match the properties that Apple provides for its controls. So you can control the elements to the same levels that you can with Apple Xcode.


Icon sets

Apps these days require developers to show as much as they can on a very small screen. This requires them to use images rather than text. Xiffe provides you with a large icon set which will meet most of your needs. Instead of browsing through the Internet for icon sets, just concentrate on your app design. We have included vector icons from Font Awesome that can instantly be customized by you for both size and color.


  App Previewer

You can simulate an entire app workflow by linking screens through button clicks and specifying transitions between screens. So your clients and collaborators can see exactly how data will move through the app.


You can also share links to your prototype with others. This will let them see how the app will actually look on an iPhone.With this version, we’re releasing a web-tool that will help you mock up your apps for iOS in a Xiffe (pronounced jiffy).

Using Xiffe, create a mockup like DropBox

or a Yelp like iPad app mockup


Xiffe provides you theme based controls with a predefined color scheme for a head start. You can change color for individual controls as well.


With a simple layout, snap to grid line feature and position indicators - Xiffe helps you create iOS app mockups with ease.

We are still in beta and continuously improving our design and user experience. We will also be introducing other mobile platforms with later versions - including Android and Windows Phone. Try out Xiffe and do send us your feedback at
