Interactive Prototyping

Review: InVisionApp

In today’s world, where time spent on projects is measured in minutes, where deadlines get tighter and tighter, time is everything. The same can be said for the Interactive world, where the next project is usually waiting in the wings.

A year or so ago I came across InVisionApp, a powerful web application capable of transforming app, web and / or mobile designs into interactive prototypes. It was a little overwhelming and at first I wasn’t sure how InVisionApp would fit into my world. Fast forward to 3 months later, a project arose where the client wanted to preview a web app in preparation for development. I immediately thought of InVisionApp, rushed over to the site, ran through the tutorials and within an hour I had begun uploading concept designs and creating interactive prototypes from Photoshop files.

InVisionApp not only saves hours of explaining, it has become the most exciting phase in all of my projects. It’s the closest step to visually display how any project is intended to work without having to actually build it. From wireframing to click-through interactive prototypes, InVisionApp will leave its mark in the interactive world as a truly remarkable benchmark. The usability of the app is also a huge bonus, as most designers work with large file sizes that haven’t been optimised, but InVisionApp handles all the optimising for the user.

In a nutshell, if you need to create an interactive prototype from wireframes, concept designs, or just plain-Jane drawings, InVisionApp is by far the best tool that will deliver on all its promises.

Top 5 Features:

• Create stunningly beautiful, fully interactive web application prototypes using the tool you know and love — Photoshop.
• Build your wireframes and prototypes in whatever fidelity you like.
• Share prototypes with stakeholders and get feedback directly on the screen.
• Collaborate on your designs and make the UX process a team effort.
• Stage realistic usability tests and get important feedback early.

Summary:

If you need to create the visual experience of a concept before further development or design, then InVisionApp is exactly what you’re looking for. It takes only a few minutes to figure out all it’s simple yet powerful capabilities. It falls nothing short of awesome in my books.
