    Chalking out all the possible interactions, at multiple levels, for different activities helped a lot -

    • clarity in planning out view controllers and wrapping sencha touch around the product
    • breaking up the development into chunks of tasks was super easy
    • other devs on team wouldn't have to wait to know how a certain activity is handled on the mobile app, or what nomenclature is used elsewhere
    • facilitated a lot of otherwise confusing communication over Skype ;)

    Did these in omnigraffle. Actual exports are super-huge.

    I was expecting these things to be a designer's work though. Existing designers on team focussed purely on style :| . So I ended up doing these myself.

    Final mobile app attached
    • mostly css & html work on the final piece
    • css was written in a generic way with sass so that we could roll out new themes very quickly ;)

    Although suggested by the fast-pace-business minded, I don't think you should outsource these kind of tasks. These are core to how your product shapes up. More time spent thinking at this stage, easier the development, clearer the goals.

    These are best to be done by the designer or designeer working on the product.

    Totally agree with your final points, are you aware of tools similar to omnigraffle available for PC ? :-S

    I once used http://iplotz.com for proposing a web app idea.

    Check these http://www.quora.com/Omnigraffle/Whats-the-best-free-alternative-to-Omnigraffle

    A few major benefits I got in omnigraffle -
    • huge collection of free stencils - iphone, androids, tablets, network diagrams, what not! you name it
    • intelligent placement of objects - saves a ton of time, shows intelligent guides, when you paste repeatedly, it guesses your intent

    I guess things were pretty chaotic when we started! :)
