I just came across POP – Prototyping on paper, which can be involved while preparing fast prototypes and sharing with the team quickly. Yes, you heard it right; this tiny iPhone app POP can make prototyping easy. Many tools are available, like Proto.io and more, but POP is different from other tools.
POP can simulate your low fidelity prototypes drawn on paper quickly by just taking pictures of all your stepwise prototypes and then simulate or create a storyboard by just linking your sketches together with “link spots,” press play, and simulate your user interface to make sure everything flows correctly – the concept is same as that we do either in Dreamweaver or in Fireworks to link pages, etc.
But Dreamweaver or Fireworks or other tools require a little expertise or knowledge of using the tools or programming knowledge. Whereas POP needs no expertise to use that application in your handy iPhone, it is straightforward to use and user-friendly. I am sure this will be a handy app for wire-frame designers, user interface experts who layout the flow of an application or a website, etc.
Apart from simulating the prototypes, one can share the prototype with colleagues and friends who can check the click-thru on their iPhone or iPad or any other web browser. They can even comment or give feedback’s on your prototype – as these play a crucial role in improving your prototypes.
You can download POP – Prototyping on paper from the following iTunes page.
