Best overall which uses different file types have more than just prototype software, able to collaborate with others. Also which allows designers to design as well as have full preparation for developers to do their work?
- Invision is a fantastic prototyping tool that I'd recommend to anyone.
- Fredo Tan made this productIn our opinion, a prototype without hi-fi interactions is rather useless. For anyone. Hence, we built ProtoPie, the hi-fi prototyping tool that enables designers to create superior prototypes containing the most sophisticated interactions you could imagine as easy as pie without having to get your hands dirty with code. The gradual learning curve of ProtoPie is due to its intuitive UI which is based on the concept model and philosophy behind the product. This concept model entails that an interaction consists of an object, a trigger and a response, simplifying the whole process of prototyping. Other strong suits: - Fully utilize sensors in your smart devices for your prototypes easily. - Share and deploy your prototypes anywhere and anytime using the ProtoPie Player app or simply any web browser. - Seamless integration with Sketch and Adobe XD CC allowing you to go back and forth between design and prototyping hassle-free. More features (e.g. collaboration) and other cool stuff are on the way at this moment ;) If you have any questions, fire away :)
- Great for animating your designs - early or later in the processI use Invision and Principle, but it will depend on the platform and how complex your prototype will be. Principle allows you to do custom animation without code. Here is a good list of prototype tools depending on learning curve, platforms and complexity. https://www.cooper.com/prototypi...
- 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.
- Rapid tool to create interactive prototypes starting from your hand sketches, visuals from Sketch (there's a direct integration) and others, or wireframes created with the Prott editor. Ready to then be shared with the team or user tested on web or on the Prott mobile apps. Disclaimer: I'm the Prott PM:)
- I'm in love with Atomic and the team. They are very forward-thinking and build some great features that will help you communicate your intent with your team. Especially since you are new to UX Design, Atomic has both the tools and a newsletter (Product Design Weekly) to help you get better. You can read my Medium articles about prototyping tools to see Atomic in action compared to a few others.
- Wait! There's more. Use Sketch to make the prototypes, then put them into Craft by Invision to make clickable prototypes you can share on the web to get localized comments from collaborators on your design. You can also use Inspect by Invision to hand off the fonts, color palettes, and assets from designers to the developers. I've tried Adobe XD for over a year but for over $20/mo, the features haven't caught up to the value this Sketch stack gets me for a single $100 payment plus freemium Invision subscription - and Adobe still has a long way to go.
