    The Importance of Wireframes in Application Design

    Recently, I joined efforts with two of my good friends and fellow Telerik Evangelists Michael Crump and Jesse Liberty to jointly build an application that would run on Windows 8 and Windows Phone.

Jesse did a great job of outlining the goals of the application and the initial wireframes of the application in his post on the project kick off. I want to focus on the value of using Wireframes in application design.
