Designing an iPhone app with Adobe Fireworks

Here’s an article that explains some benefits of using Fireworks to layout iPhone apps.

Do you want to design your own iPhone app, but don’t know how to get started?

Well, Luke Kilpatrick not only runs Fire On The Bay, San Francisco’s Adobe Fireworks User Group, but he designs apps for a living. In this video interview with Robert Scoble, Kilpatrick shows how you can get started without writing any code or doing anything too hard.

Yes, it’s only a mock-up, but if you get it started like this, then you have something you can show your friends to see if they are interested before you spend a ton of cash on a development team.

Check out Fire On The Bay’s resource page here for some more tutorials and help.
