Top 10 ways to select the right prototyping tool for web and mobile projects

  1. 1. HOW TO SELECT THE RIGHT PROTOTYPING TOOL www.savahapp.com Discover the top 10 ways to select the right prototyping tool for your web and mobil project
  2. 2. 1-HOW EASY IS THE TOOL TO LEARN? www.savahapp.com No design agency or an UI, UX designer wants to spend hours learning how to use a complicated platform. The good news is that there are tools in the market and they are pretty easy to get to grips with. The shorter learning cycle the better. In reality most designers don’t have the spare time to learn long-winded tools. In our opinion, a good start is ‘how easy and intuitive is the tool/platform to learn’.
  3. 3. 2-DOES IT COME WITH SUPPORT? www.savahapp.com Support is good and if it’s quick, that’s a plus point. Problems and difficulties happen and having someone to contact to get support from is always a bonus. The quality and variety of support is also important. Are there help documents, guides, tutorials and videos on offer and available?
  4. 4. 3-HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO CREATE A PROTOTYPE? www.savahapp.com The actual time it takes to create your real-life prototype from uploading your image screens to prototype. There is no reason why creating a prototype should not be quick and simple with all the choices that are available in the market.
  5. 5. 4-CAN YOU TEST ON MULTIPLE DEVICES? www.savahapp.com Does the tool allow users to create a prototype for one device and test it out on all devices (ranging from smartphone to tablet and desktop)? This is a key requirement to determine the user experience across all devices. This allows users to quickly capture how their app looks and feels like across multiple devices before any coding has begun. In this way, it is quick and easy to change and improve designs before the app is built.
  6. 6. 5-HOW INTUITIVE THE TOOL IS? www.savahapp.com How easy and well does the tool/platform allow users to simulate end-users intended interaction? This includes transitions, scrolling, gestures, custom transitions, navigation between screens and overall display and appearance.
  7. 7. 6-HOW EASY IS IT TO SHARE YOUR PROTOTYPES WITH YOUR CLIENTS? www.savahapp.com The degree of features that is available on the tool/platform for sharing your prototypes to your team and clients. Are you limited to the number of people you can share your prototypes with? The rule of thumb in our opinion is to receive and take on board as much feedback as possible to each of your prototypes to refine and improve.
  8. 8. 7-HOW EASY IS IT TO COLLABORATE ON THE PROTOTYPE? www.savahapp.com Does the platform allow teams & collaborators to easily communicate on the design screens? Having the freedom to invite, as many collaborators to each of your prototypes is a plus point. Does it support real-time design collaboration? The ability to have your team and clients discuss, iterate and collaborate in real-time on a prototype upon the design screen is definitely a key feature to look out for.
  9. 9. 8-INTEGRATION WITH OTHER KEY TOOLS? www.savahapp.com Teams and businesses nowadays use so many other tools (e.g. Dropbox, Jira, Slack, Trello) in their everyday activity. Having a built-in integration with these third parties will help teams and businesses to automate a great deal of their work flow processes. This will help in saving time and ensuring that everyone is looking at the final versions.
  10. 10. 9-INTEGRATION WITH OTHER KEY TOOLS? www.savahapp.com Teams and businesses nowadays use so many other tools (e.g. Dropbox, Jira, Slack, Trello) in their everyday activity. Having a built in integration with these third parties will help teams and businesses to automate a great deal of their work flow processes. This will help in saving time and ensuring that everyone is looking at the final versions.
  11. 11. 9-CAN YOU KEEP TRACK OF ALL YOUR DESIGN VERSIONS? www.savahapp.com Each feedback will provide a new design version and maintaining these versions can be very difficult to manage especially when you are working with large projects. Does the tool provide a design repository to maintain all versions? A key question whether it has a built in version history panel that is quick and easy to view your evolving design files?
  12. 12. 10-PRICING www.savahapp.com This is last but by no means least, how much does the tool cost to use? Some providers charge licence fees, yearly subscriptions, rolling month contracts and many more. All pricing plans are different and are all based on the number of users as well as the number of add-on features that they are offering. In our opinion, we feel the best pricing plans are your rolling month contract. So, you can cancel at any time and you are not signed up for a long contract.
