SketchyPad is very similar to iMockups. It was specially designed to make life easier for designers, programmers and interface designers. It comes with a ton of useful stencils and makes mockup of both websites and apps a snap. Since the interface is so easy to use, it makes a great alternative for those who don’t want to spend the extra couple bucks on iMockups.
