Data Simulation in your web and mobile app prototypes

Hi Justinminders, let´s talk data today!

Data is the core of almost any web/mobile application and developers deal with data on a daily basis, but, there are some applications that are really data driven. Let´s talk about these ones.

Data driven applications have two things in common: First, they are increasingly used by professionals in sectors with the highest demand for apps, such business, e-commerce, finance and health. Second, users in these sectors are heavy iPads/PC Tablets consumers. That makes data driven app´s for the mobile world one of the hottest trends in 2012.

Now, developing a data driven app can be challenging. Doing validation tests is almost impossible if you don´t prototype it first. That´s when data simulation comes in handy: Creating datasets that performs like the real ones. It is undoubtedly one of the coolest features of our Justinmind Prototyper. You can configure dynamic data lists, introduce variables, replicate data conditions and reproduce forms that will behave like the real application.

There is nothing like data visualization to give you and your client a clear understanding of how the project is going to work, providing you with the opportunity and flexibility to optimize your application easily before you start coding.

We encourage you to use it and would love to hear about your experience prototyping with data. Go ahead and tell us how our data simulation feature worked in your projects.
