iPad & iPhone graph paper for designers and developers

Today we are happy to announce the first of our new resources for iPhone and iPad developers.  Designing a new app can be a daunting task; these free PDF templates help you with the UI design stage.

Download the PDF file and print as many sheets as you need, then start sketching out your new app interface, interaction and screen flow.  Both are US standard 8.5” x 11” sheets of paper, complete with grid and guides to help you quickly get your ideas down.

The iPad version is the actual size of the screen area (1024px x 768px) and contains guides for the status bar, navigation bars (both top and bottom) as well as “split view” guide all on a grid making it easy for you to sketch out your ideas.

The iPhone version features six 320px x 480px iPhone screens with guides for the status bar, time indicator area and “slide to unlock” all on a grid for easy layout.

You can download the PDF files from the new Resources section of our website.

If you use them and like them please let us know.  We are always thinking of better ways to help serve the iPhone and iPad community.  Cheers!

The iPad graph paper template is awesome! I love it. I would like a horizontal view without the split view. Also, a vertical view w no split view. Thanks!

It seems to require a login to your intranet. Is this a bug or are the templates no longer available?

Thanks for spotting this -- yes, it's a bug. Hold on for a bit and I'll get this fixed.
