I have a quick question - What are the tools and processes you use on a daily basis to wireframe/prototype? Most importantly, how many of you use paper and pen as a primary wire framing tool?
Also it would be awesome, if you use paper and pen, rebound with a shot of your process?

I think using paper an pen is so important! It lets you create freely :) And it's a record of your creative process.

@Siddharth Arun I'd agree with what @Madelein Araya said. We're always comfortable with stuff we can touch and feel. Wireframing with pen & paper sets you free.
Although I use Axure for wireframing designs for clients, I think it makes a lot of sense to start with a simple sketch. The fact that there's no undo (erasing is a bad habit btw) makes you more confident about your work. Once you get the groundwork done on paper, you can always switch to a digital wireframing tool for precision.
I don't know what it is about using pencil and paper, but I feel much more creative. I don't get that same feeling when using a desktop app.
@Madelein Araya, @imran_parvez, @Arun Pattnaik, @Bruce Vang - Thanks for the responses guys - it looks like paper and pen got a 4 out of 4 here! Please pass this on - its critical for a new product I'm building! You'll love it!
@Siddharth Arun UXPin killer? ;)
