Those guys at Teehan+Lax have done it again and painstakingly recreated every detail of iOS5 and the iPhone 4S. Everything was created in Photoshop as editable shapes layers.
Their templates have become invaluable to iOS dev’s and are a must have tool for creating app mock-ups! They offer these to the developer community free of charge, so if you use it and want to says thanks like them on Facebook :mrgreen:& also follow them on Twitter.
Download the iOS 5 GUI PSD (iPhone 4S) from their site.
For those of you who are not already familiar with the templates by Teehan+Lax here are a few screenshots:

I came across this free tool today and I thought everyone should know about it. It’s called MockApp and it allows developers to very easily put together a mock up of their app ideas. The template comes in 2 versions: PowerPoint & Keynote. It has just about every possible UI element that you can imagine and is easily customizable. The developer has put a lot of time and effort into creating this beautiful resource so if you use MockApp all he asks in return is that you show him some tweet love or link love. Just give the man some credit and spread the word about MockApp to others. He calls this Tweetware which I think is a very clever and fitting name.
Description from the developers site:
* A large number of iPhone UI elements have been added and/or vectorized. I think I can now safely assert that MockApp 1.0 includes the most comprehensive vector iPhone UI library of any easy iPhone prototyping tool out there (no, the SDK is not a prototyping tool that my mom could use).
* The library file is now organized and commented based on the ultimate authority: Apple’s iPhone Human Interface guidelines. It even shows examples of some UI elements on an iPhone held by Steve Jobs’ hand (OK, maybe that wasn’t his hand).
* The template file, where you create your mockup, now features a shiny iPhone as backdrop for your app screens with working Home button and all.
* The template file now supports vertical and horizontal iPhone screen mockups.
