Building a mobile app is always an exciting process; however several of doubts come to mind as one proceeds with the same. Like speaking of this stat presented by TechCrunch, 79% of mobile users will try an app a second time if the user experience is less than optimal; however this very number drop to 16% after users gives a try to this app one more time. This signifies that users have exceptionally low tolerance for buggy apps thus it is advised that it has been set right the first time itself. Fortunately, prototyping is a tried and tested method as this is the best way to ascertain that your app is on track in terms of UI/UX from the initial stage itself.

Through prototype it becomes easy to create a wireframe or skeleton as that way it is easy to establish the flow and function of your app. For instance, you must ascertain what information needs to be displayed on the home screen or how does a user need to navigate from one page to another. These are the things need to be taken care of while prototyping.

However, as we talk about prototyping, it’s not just about design. To start with, this frequently overlooked aspect of prototyping is the integration of business rules into the flow of your application. Mainly, the rules are well outlined in a contract as writing a contract that is thorough and works smoothly is altogether a different topic for a different post. However, it’s imperative to assume that your business rules are firmly established as then it becomes necessary to reflect these rules in your prototype like, showcasing the user’s geo-location is outlined in the business rules. That way it is always a great idea to reflect this in your prototype. That way it certainly will not be neglected as the app moves into design and development.

These are the reasons why we’re all about prototyping at USAWeb:

Eliminates design iterations: As you build an app there is a lot of happening between the client and design team. That way you can establish a solid prototype that receives client approval and hence the design team can move forward with the project easily.

Development becomes manageable: You can clearly define the app’s function in the prototype as then your development team is going to have a clear roadmap of what precisely this app must do.

Time and money is saved: The nature from various aspects of a project that’s not specifically defined is bound to cost your company precious company and that way it’s advised to get your plan straight from the initial stage itself.

Prototyping, in all, is a vital stage in mobile app development that must not be skipped. You can take some time out to prototype right as that’s going to help your design and development process in a great manner. At the same time, this way you can make certain that your end product reflects the initial vision for the app.

    great. pixate is a tool, its replacing older app prototyping like wireframes because it directly makes interactive app design by a photoshop designer.
