Why only use wireframes? Launching Justinmind Prototyper 3.0


Wireframes and mockups are very useful to define websites or applications. However, in the era of web 2.0, RIAs, web apps and dynamic websites, they need to be combined with more functional prototypes to define an application properly.

Along with mockups and wireframes, the new Justinmind Prototyper 3.0 allows you to create fully functional dynamic prototypes. From highly interactive softwares to mobile apps or complex dynamic websites (i.e. Facebook or Easyjet websites) you can prototype anything in minutes. Both on Windows and Mac, the desktop app is easy as PowerPoint. Justinmind 3.0 provides full drag and drop features to wireframe without any coding. Justinmind is also very powerful as the prototype is, for end users, virtually identical to the final product.

Justinmind offers all the tools you need to do a prototype from A to Z. From sketching to mobile widget libraries, a wide range of templates, masters and widgets are available. Moreover you can drag and drop any image directly from your computer or from other softwares (Photoshop, Illustrator) and add interactivity to them. The prototyper also offers to create conditional navigation by simply dragging & dropping conditions. It lets you make your own interactions dragging and dropping events. You can even create dynamic wireframes by adding real data and content to prototypes. And if you want to test a prototype on progress, no need to export, you can simulate your prototype instantly. However, Justinmind generates HTML and JS so that you can quickly test and share your prototypes.

But more than a wireframing tool, Justinmind also gives you the possibility to add and attach requirements and comments directly to elements. You can also generate and customise specification documents, diagrams and navigation flows for validation.

Conception, design, development and testing, Justinmind Prototyper is a powerful, customisable tool that can be used all through the project. It fluidifies any IT project, improving communication between programmers and non-IT literate people, cutting cost, avoiding rework load.
