Application Prototyping

Be it UI prototypes or workflows on whiteboards, we can turn your imagination into reality in the form of real world applications

Understand, Research, Strategize & Design to build intuitive Web and Mobile experiences that drive business value and help gain a competitive edge.

From the whiteboard workflows to high-fidelity user interface prototypes, we use each of your ideas in the wake of coming up with the final product. Our multidisciplinary team collects the rough sketches and transfers them further for critical thinking. The strategy formulation and decisions gradually move to offer something impeccable.

Grasping Every Input from Your Mind, Even If It Comes On a Piece of Paper

We perform structured brainstorming sessions to soak your requirements and to plan the architecture. In the run, we take every minor to major inputs from you, be it on the backside of a napkin or a paper, a suggestion over the call, or during a candid talk. Once we are familiar with the requisite concept, we proceed with transforming it into reality.

Application Prototyping acts as a working (or semi-working) model to ensure we have a best suited trajectory for your MVP Launch. Additionally, it is an effective way to create experiences that have a long-lasting impression on your customers.

    Prototypes and Levels of Fidelity

    Application Prototyping helps to come up with the initial versions of the required software. It typically stimulates a few aspects of the final version of the product, though it varies according to the level of fidelity of the prototype. While moving through the spectrum of prototyping, we come across the following types:

    Concept Drawing

    This elementary stage gives a raw idea of the views and screens that the application will require. Usually carried out on sketchbooks or whiteboards, the concept drawing serves the purpose of finding and resolving several issues right in the beginning. This is to make the later stages free of errors to as much extent as possible. The whiteboard sketching talks about the possible ideas, information, the placement of UI elements, their flow and so on.

    Functions:

    • Defining the basic layout and discussing ideas about the application
    • Whiteboard sketches, or paper drawings.
    • Zero interactivity.

    Low-Fidelity Prototypes

    Low-fidelity prototypes or wireframes are good to get the ideas in estimated concept and effort. They act as a tool to make high-level decisions about the functioning of the app. In this stage, we gather the suitable content followed by its placement on the screen after carrying out detailed discussions. Next, we add interaction that lets us transform your idea into a prototype.

    Functions:

    • Define and refine the content layout, following mapping and navigation interactions. 
    • Indicate the elements via text, outlines, shapes, boxes, grey shades, etc.
    • Least interactivity to switch among screens

    Middle-Fidelity Prototypes

    These prototypes often work as a black and white model so that application functionality and usability are the focus of discussion. The middle-fidelity prototypes are ideal for showing the high functional version of the concept. It is the stage where things start looking real in the form of basic content and interaction. The stage equips our team with enough material to let the developer know about the project requirement and its functioning. In short, the project is all set to embark on the development phase from this stage.

    Functions:

    • Discussions on visuals, content positioning followed by workflow and on-page refinement
    • Addition of colours, text, images, etc., to convey the intended details
    • Least interactivity to switch among screens

    High-Fidelity Prototypes

    These prototypes help to render the idea of the final interaction with greater details and are usually adopted in case of complex user journeys. The prototype highlights every interface detail including font size, style, colours, precise placement of elements, description of all the possible interactions, and so on. The idea behind a high-fidelity prototype is the better implementation of the project through a realistic idea of the application. It lets the developers and the users to find out the exact look and feel of the application. This will eventually lead to minimal errors and reduced rework.

    Functions:

    • Detailed discussion on visual elements like font styles, colors, images, weights, icons, etc.
    • Giving the appearance of a real life application through text, colors and images.
    • Addition of intricate page interactions, animations, etc. to give a real look and feel

    Get a Concrete Form of an Abstract Idea

    Application Prototypes are validating the assumptions and expectations. It stimulates the user experience and communicates the idea better. We aim to get the most appropriate version of your requirements.

    Communicate the concept and sell the idea

    Prototypes talk about the concept of the idea. This further helps to visualize the concept. Prototypes help to analyse the efforts and feasibility. It further helps us to demonstrate and sell our ideas in front of clients.

    Work through design and features

    Prototypes give a shape to imaginations. When your ideas are solidified, you can understand them better. Brainstorming sessions contribute to forming an object.

    Feasibility estimation

    Our team develops the prototype first before moving towards the final production. The motive is to get the correct estimation of the effort and feasibility.

    Get Started with Application Prototyping

    Prototypes have their involvement in the complete designing process where each step treats it as a model to follow. We start with assumptions and end with an astounding result by implementing the required inputs into the same.

    • Prototypes give a clarified technical specification of the final product before development.
    • The clickable prototypes help to test the projects in the focus group. 

    Skipping application prototyping often ends with a reluctant product and hence is a highly recommended method to get the application development idea. It also helps to get an enough visibility into the product expectations and therefore saves lot of time and effort that can potentially go into iterations.

     We care to improvise with every application prototyping. We take the feedback from the user of the project and then evolve accordingly. The final product will definitely be a more suitable solution to your requirements; all you need is to opt for the prototyping service. Our revised and enhanced prototypes will seek feedback to stimulate our efforts of development.

    How Does Application Prototyping help?

    Application Prototyping is a proof of concept that operates before the overall development procedure. While you approach us, we can assist you with discovery and planning, brainstorming sketching sessions, and fidelity iterations pertaining to your proposed applications as a part of our application prototyping methodology. It helps us in multiple ways:

    Time Saving and Cost-Effective Approach
    Anything can fail at any stage of development. To avoid this, the thumb rule of development is to develop a prototype first. It is good to identify the misunderstanding and loopholes at an early stage. By sealing the leakages earlier, we can save lots of money, time, and effort for the end product development.

    Enhanced Involvement
    Every project rotates among many associated people and a prototype development engages them to have a sneak peek into the same. The journey of complete development involves many people (or participants) like business analysts, project managers, designers, and developers and we always encourage the on-going conversation among them to banish the existing leakages of the prototype.

    Comprehensive Design and Development
    The complexities of design and development phases often occur due to the lack of understanding and communication. None can be a master of all trades. Hence, the application prototype help in an increased performance amongst different specialists. When it comes to design interactions, interactive prototypes are indeed a great option.
