Ever had an idea for a web or mobile app that always remained an idea, while a similar one was launched, got funded and became the next big thing? We often let our ideas slip away because we don’t think we have the time or the skills to prototype them and validate them with real users. Not being a designer or a developer are definitely limitations, but it shouldn’t stop us from moving forward on an idea.
This is what GUIToolkits.com aims to change; it offers a fast and economic way to prototype ideas and test them without having to do pixel design work. Whether you are a UX expert juggling multiple clients, or an entrepreneur with a game changing idea, GUIToolkits had got something for you.
GUIToolkits offers 3,000+ user interface components and 200+ royalty-free icons for prototyping web, mobile and desktop apps using popular tools, such as Illustrator, Fireworks, Visio, OmniGraffle, Axure RP, and even Keynote and PowerPoint!
Each toolkit contains hundreds of vector shapes and icons, designed in each tool, enabling designers, product managers and entrepreneurs to mock-up their app ideas in minutes instead of hours.
The toolkits support creating wireframes and high fidelity prototypes for iPhone, iPad, Android, BlackBerry, Facebook, Web 2.0, Mac, Windows and Windows Mobile apps.
GUIToolkits is super-easy to use. The templates come as an archive file that can be decompressed on Mac or PC, then opened in your favorite design tool. Copy/paste from a template onto a new canvas to create your user interface screens, then add hyperlinks to make the interface clickable and interactive.
If you know how to use any design or prototyping tool (or a presentation tool like Keynote or PowerPoint), you’ll be able to use the toolkits to make ideas happen without a problem.
“I’m not a designer, but was able to come up with screenshots for a mobile product that we’re working on for both Android and iPhone in just a couple of days; and everyone is blown away by them.”
– Arthur Bart-Williams, Cofounder/V.P. at Onyx
GUIToolkits offers individual toolkits for each platform, and bundles (which are their bestsellers) containing all 9 toolkits for web, mobile and desktop (3,000+ components and 200+ icons) go for less than half the total price. They offer a 30-days money back guarantee, and free lifetime updates.
GUIToolkits was created to help designers and entrepreneurs design, validate, iterate, and launch products quickly and cheaply.
Next time you have an idea for a new product or a business, don’t let it slip off, because it could be your golden ticket. Instead, grab a GUI Toolkit, prototype your idea, and show it to some users.
