Creating something from nothing is hard. And when that something is as complex as a native mobile app, this is especially true.

Wouldn’t it be helpful to have simple, beautiful starting points to kickstart your next app build?

We thought so too. That’s why we’re excited to announce Example Screens.

Examples is a collection of the common Screens your app needs—login forms, permission requests, profile layouts, settings, and more. Simply click-to-add them to your app project, and you’re off to the races!

You can access our growing library of Example Screens by visiting Draftbit.com and signing up for our free, private beta. We’re adding new screens every month!

To add one of our pre-built screens to your projects:

  • Click Screens in the Sidebar
  • Click Add Screen at the top of the Screens panel
  • Scroll our expanding select of Screen Templates, mouse over one for options to Preview and Add
  • Click Add

You can customize a Screen Template's layout and components like any other in the Draftbit toolset. Add your organization’s branding, unique style, and other user flow elements, and our templates quickly become part of your app.

For this inaugural collection of Screen Templates, we started with various Screens for some of the most common stuff. With a simple click, you can take a big leap ahead to quickly mock up your entire onboarding flow, brainstorm a login process, or build a profile directory.

Our plan is to regularly grow this collection into a healthy catalog of starting points. The ultimate goal is for you to spend less time on non-critical screens, and more time on what makes your app truly unique.

We’d love to hear your feedback for Screen Templates and the rest of Draftbit on Twitter and Facebook. You can also request access at Draftbit.com.
