About two years ago I first mentioned the Keynotopia templates for creating interactive iPhone and iPad app prototypes using Keynote.
Since that time Keynotopia has grown and come out with a number of premium products.
Recently Keynotopia released a set of vector components in a hand drawn style (over 1,000 in the set) for free.
Here’s a video demonstrating how to go from the free components to a real prototype in a few minutes:
It’s widely expected that the Apple event later today (March 7th, 2012) will feature an updated version of the iPad known as either the iPad 3 or iPad HD and a display with double the resolution of the iPad and iPad 2 (2048×1536).
This means that it’s time to start changing the user interface within iPad apps to start supporting the larger display.

It’s no secret that design is critical for success in the iOS app store.
With hundreds of thousands of apps to chose from your app needs to make a great first impression.
With a poor looking design the user may not feel that impulse to buy, and review site scouts could immediately passover your app.
Unfortunately quality app design can be quite costly.
I have to admit that when it comes to design, I’m pretty much clueless (and you’re probably saying I can see that by looking at your site — I’m working on it as time permits!). Design is just so important in the iPhone and iPad app stores. Let’s face facts there’s a lot of absolutely useless apps in the app store that you would never open more than once unless you were showing them to a friend — that have been massively successful.
