I'm developing a mobile application and such a program would be useful for me. I found WireframeSketcher on Ubuntu Software Center, but it doens't seem free since I have to fill payment details.

Are you looking for something that integrates with Eclipse, like WireframeSketcher? Or is that not a requirement? – Eliah Kagan Jun 6 '12 at 23:04
That is not a requirement. I am open to both types. The application I'm developing is for android and Wireframesketcher has already available a gallery of components fpr android – csbl Jun 6 '12 at 23:16

No, I haven't. I'll check it out. Thank you! – csbl Jun 8 '12 at 4:15
I tried Dia once and found it tedious to work with it for wireframing purposes – JanD Aug 7 '12 at 16:47
