What's the Best Way to Go About Creating Interactive Prototypes for Mobile Apps?

 
YEREVAN, Armenia - May 26, 2022 - PRLog -- Simply put, a mobile app prototype is an interactive but not yet functional draft of the future application. It involves modeling the app UI design without actual coding and is considered a pre-development stage.

The main purpose of prototyping is to ensure that the final design meets all the technical requirements and that the app is easy and enjoyable to use.

Benefits of Mobile App Prototyping

Starting with an app prototype is cost-effective:
Have you just started testing an "almost-finished" product? Hmm, if it turns out that the app doesn't meet the originally intended requirements and needs to be rebuilt, it can be expensive. It's far better and less expensive to resolve bugs at the beginning of the process rather than at the end, right?

Improved user experience: UX teams usually test user flows, screen layouts, interactions, accessibility issues, and the overall user experience. On top of that, you can use mobile app prototypes to present concepts and design ideas to users and get user feedback before development begins.

Save time:  As mentioned above, starting with an app prototype gives you feedback from both end-users and investors early on. You can identify issues early which will save time later in the development process. On top of that, you will get a prototype much quicker than a fully developed app.

How to Prototype an Application?

Understand the Problem:
You need to start with doing some research and come up with a list of pain points that you want to target with your app.

Create a List of Functionalities: Now, it's time to map out the core functionality of your mobile app based on the information you've gathered from market research.

Create Sketches of the Primary Screens: At this stage, your prototype doesn't need to be pretty. It just needs to depict the app's layout and flow of screens.

Turn Your Sketches into Wireframes: A wireframe is a low-fidelity, simplified outline of your product consisting of boxes, words, lines, descriptions, etc.

Turn Wireframes into a Prototype: You can now turn low-fidelity wireframes into a basic prototype and share it with your target audience, peers, and manager to help them understand and give feedback on the app.

One of the most popular tools you can use for wireframing and prototyping is Figma. Figma is a cloud-based design tool. It works on any platform (Macs, Windows PCs, Linux machines).

Both designers and non-designers can use it to do all kinds of design work, including wireframing websites, designing mobile app interfaces, prototyping designs, crafting social media posts, etc.
