Its not bad... good if you want to really quickly throw a wireframe together to illustrate something, but perhaps not the best for really diving in deep and describing complex interactions.
Its certainly better than the iPad version OmniGraffle for wire framing - I personally found it to be terrible, everything not only seemed very complicated but there were serious issues when importing wireframes connected on the desktop or using stencils like the Konigi set which made in unusable.
I tend to use my iPad mainly for convenient surfing, but it can be useful for the odd bit of productive work - the iWork apps I find very handy.

Yeah, I have it and love it for quick and simple mockups on the go. I wouldn’t start a large project with it, but for getting something down quickly on a plane or on vacation it is pretty nice. I haven't tested out any export paths yet. Re Omni-gfsfdfdsafdfas :) when I saw the $50 price tag I just about spit. Personally I can't imagine ANY app worth that price. Even Apple doesn't charge more than $20 for their full featured apps. Also, and not to start a debate though I'm sure one will come, I have a very hard time believing in any tool that is only on a Mac. I love my iPhone and iPad for consuming content, but for design I am a PC. I love being on the platform I am designing for in the end. So, why is the most popular UX tool only on the Mac? Adobe understands this. It makes no sense. It feels pretentious, so I won't use it. I feel especially strong about this given that the majority of companies needing high end UX, IA services are corporations and they are by far dominated by PCs. I wish it made sense from a workflow standpont.Respectfully yoursRich

For fast stuff it's pretty good, but I haven't built anythingcomplex with it yet. I'll try to get off of my duff this week andwrite up some thoughts about it.In brief, it's not bad, and if you're uneasy about paying the $50 forOmnigraffle it's a good compromise.I've been planning to try Keynote out on the iPad as well, as I'vebeen using it on the desktop for a while now and quite like it,especially with the Keynote Wireframe Toolkit. Might be anotheroption to try if you already own a copy.:http://keynotekungfu.com/
By the way, is anyone else seeing issues replying to the mailing list? I sent a reply to this thread in the morning and it still hasn't appeared.
