Which wireframing tools do you use?

Hello guys, I'm looking for a good wireframing tool with the following criteria:

  • Preferably a stand-alone desktop application (non-cloud app)
  • Preferably open-source, or free, or one-time cost with a perpetual license (no subscription)
  • Has lots of stencils (predefined UI components)
  • Easy to add new types of stencils (UI components) that I can reuse for different projects

Which tools would you recommend?

Thanks!

Adobe xd. It's free. Otherwise figma.

Tried sketch after using xd. Not impressed.

Ipad + apple pencil + goodnotes / microsoft one note is my favorite wireframing tools.

Yeah I agree, nothing can beat pen and paper for wireframing. Or in this case, ipad and apple pencil.

Aren’t adobe xd and figma more like mockup tools though?

You can always wireframe with mockup tools since it's more versatile.
