Figma is dynamite, especially now it has prototyping baked in. I wish Figma would integrate with some of the animation tools (Principal et al), as sometimes the prototyping functionality just isn't enough.

I used to mostly rely on Sketch, Marvel and Keynote for prototyping, but very recently I tried Figma and found it to be a breeze. I especially loved how easy it was for me to handover to the programmer. It's all online so sharing and collaborating was pretty easy as well.

Until recently, I'd been using Sketch + Craft + InVision as my core way of designing and sharing UI work with clients. But InVision always felt like it was designed by 3 or 4 teams of people who never met. Comments could be made it one view, but not another. I could give them a LiveShare link to lead them through designs, but then they couldn't access the fi… See more

Framer's making HUGE strides in this space - allowing you to extract CSS code from the design files straight away. But it really depends what you're looking to build. If you have no technical skills (and no interest in learning because of time constraints) then I'd also recommend Squarespace - it's beautiful, slick and easy-to-use regardless of tech knowledg… See more

by Jon Yongfook It's the end of November and time to launch my 3rd startup of the 12 startup challenge! TL;DR, Today I am launching Montage Definitely the most technically challenging one so far. I only managed to get this launched on time by pulling 12+ hour shifts and basically shutting myself away in a serviced apartment for 7 days!

Both sketch and invision are easy to use and quick to setup. You can create prototypes for different device types. There are many plugins available that allow you (or your designers) to work even faster. For bootstrapping the one month free trial of sketch and the one prototype for free version of invision offer a great option to build a prototype without a… See more

We use Sketch at Olio Digital Labs, and it is, hands down, way faster and easier to use than Photoshop. You can easily switch from wireframes to full fidelity designs, export CSS, and there are new, useful plugins being released frequently.

Easily the best prototyping tool for prototyping apps I've ever used, and I've tried almost everything available. It has a bit of a learning curve but it's not much steeper than learning Flinto or Principle.

UX Planet
What happens when a designer has an idea and wants to convey it to stakeholders or team members? Quite often designers create static mockups and try to explain concepts using plain words. They say something like "After you click on this button you'll see the following animated effect."
SitePoint
As a designer, bridging the gap with stakeholders is utterly important. Properly conveying design and interaction ideas quickly and rapidly with solely static UI designs, mockups, wireframes and even simple click-through prototypes simply doesn't work. This is what Tony Kim thought.
