Expand your prototyping knowledge

Bye, bye 2011 & Hello 2012 (I)

We are in that time of the year when everybody feels the need of analyzing the facts that has impacted us the most, and at the same time we all try to foresee the ones that will shake us next year. We thought about it and come up with the conclusion that… Hey! We can do that too! So here it goes…


Talking first about the year we are about to end in our opinion the two most relevant news for web and mobile developers have been (1) the growing maturity of responsive/adaptive design (2) and the consolidation of Android as an alternative to iOS. Both have direct implications on what web and mobile developers must focus their attention on.

Another change in the sector has been the shift that many web design/development companies have made towards the world of mobile apps. That, as you all know, made us rethink our product’s roadmap and add to our prototyping software more capabilities to prototype mobile apps. We had to ship libraries to prototype apps for the main mobile devices and even simulate gestures and run the prototypes in the mobile devices themselves.

What are our predictions for 2012? That, my friends, is another post.
