Wireframe mockup and prototype are not same thing. But these three terms are often used for same meaning.
A wireframe provides an outline of the proposed design only. Not the functionality. In the other word its static drawing of the design.
Mockup is a static illustration of the design but its provide more information. It provides mid to high description of the proposed design.
Prototype is dynamic. They provide almost final details of your design. A prototype can be tested as if it were the actual end product. It provide same look and feel of the proposed design.
In this post we are going to show the list of prototype tool that can help ease the process, make things easier and for you to churn out prototypes a lot faster.
InVision is a prototyping tool created for designers, by designers. It allows you to quickly and easily create interactive mockups for your designs. One of the advantage of this tool is you can share the mockups with your team or clients. So It makes presenting your designs a breeze, and is much more effective than sending out a .PDF or screen shots.
Proto.io designed for for mobile prototyping platform. It will be a good choice if you’re in need of a quality prototyping tool to assist you with your mobile app design activities. It doesn’t require coding knowledge.
Pidoco is software that lets you quickly create click-through wireframes and fully interactive UX prototypes. Starting with the easy sketching feature, you can build a set of custom templates, create the interactive elements you need, present your prototype to others.
Webflow enables an unprecedented level of collaboration between design, content, and development. The advantage of Webflow is that you can build and test the high-fidelity prototypes. Once your prototype is done you can seamlessly move from a fully-interactive prototype to a developed product.
Lucidchart is an online application makes it easy to sketch and share professional flowchart diagrams and mockups of your design. It has drag and drop technology, interactive demonstration capabilities, and a layer technology that allows you to build highly-complex simulations.
HotGloo is a UX, wireframe and prototyping tool designed to build wireframes for web, mobile and wearables. HotGloo helps to visualize planning processes, build and test drive interactions very easily. Create and share fully interactive prototypes with your team and clients and gather feedback on the process.
