visual application design

Recommended Posts


At a former web development company we used a visual development tool to produce placeholder pages with active navigation to help our customers visualize how their website would fit together as well as planning it ourselves.  I can't remember the name of the program though.  Anyone know of any good tools that'll do that sort of thing?

I don't really get what you mean by 'placeholder pages', but the industry standard for application design is [url=http://www.uml.org/]UML[/url].

It supports various types of modelling, but for presenting the workings of an application to clients I would recommend an Activity Diagram.

There are a ton of UML graphical programs some of which I listed in the [url=http://www.phpfreaks.com/forums/index.php/topic,107835.0.html]Application Design Resources Sticky[/url].
