Designing mobile applications is much more than beautiful pictures, it goes from a clear understanding of the problem to the constraints users might find along the way. With that, designers must tell a story, and like video-games, it requires an on-boarding process to welcome users and also show them what they can and cannot do with the app.
Looking for references has become much more than just mocks and seeing flows and animations is the best thing in my opinion. That's why I tend to install so many apps on my phones. You can also rely on this beautiful service called User Flow Patterns (http://userflowpatterns.com/). It aggregates flows and displays in short videos. Super useful indeed.
