    Screenshots or mockups displayed with perspective. Usually makes viewer think the screenshot/mock is more polished while making it actually unreadable.

      A mockup should rarely be used for it's pixel perfect nature. Especially in the medium it's a representation of.

      A mockup of an app or a site, on a computer, can too easily be confused with the real thing.

      A mockup in perspective hammers home the idea that it is being 'presented'. There is a politeness to flagging that a mockup isn't a working interface, and that it can't be interacted with.
