I am trying to create UI mockups for an Android app. I need something like this:

Android image

I am using Justinmind prototyper free edition and I cannot find an UI element for the share button which produces the list of apps (as shown in the image). Is this a normal button or an image button or something else? Is there a tool which supports such an UI element?

I dont think it is a native UI element. Try using a button with the image. Share icon is available from The Share Icon. The Share Icon is free to use and it has a zipped package containing pixel based graphics in many sizes and vector graphics in .ai, .svg, and .eps formats. Hope it helps.


This UI element is known as the Share Action Provider, introduced in Android 4.0. It is described at Android Design → Action Bar.

Although there isn't a pre-packaged stencil for this element at the moment, you can combine the popup menu and share icon stencils found at Android Design → Downloads → Stencils and Sources for use in mockups.

  • On a related note, is there an officially recommended tool for Android UI mockups?

    Not one that's officially recommended, but we provide stencils for OmniGraffle, Adobe Fireworks, and Adobe Photoshop.. you can also take the Fireworks PNG and use it with other tools. Commented Apr 13, 2012 at 20:32
