If you're willing to work more closely with your developers, and you're a cool person, you can skip wireframes altogether.

Ever build an app for yourself? Did you wireframe it? I bet you didn't.




If you build an app for yourself you probably have the requirements and wireframes welded into your brain since it's likely being developed to solve a problem that you encounter on a daily basis such as managing your dotfiles between all of your VPS instances.

When you're developing something to solve a problem you could never even imagine having, say wardrobe management software for the wife of a senior politician you're probably going to need those wireframes.

Totally agree, but it's so rare to find a client-agency relationship like that in the web dev space.

Yes, I have built an app for myself. I've definitely wireframed it. I usually go through a crapload of wireframes, HTML mockups, etc. It's incredibly difficult (for me) to just develop without at least a starting point either written or in my mind.
