Yet another prototyping tool

I’ve been looking at wireframing/prototyping tools a LOT over the last year. In fact I fear I’m becoming a quite nerdy about it, and possibly a little obsessed.

So it comes as a bit of a surprise to me that I’ve never even heard of Justinmind Prototyper. The problem with a lot of this niche software is that it can be hard to discover unless it has featured in a ’10 best wireframing tools’ blog post somewhere. Justinmind Prototyper looks like a reconsidered version of Axure from what I can see, sharing a lot of the same features, and I notice, price too. It’s expensive.

An area it triumphs over Axure for me is the instant previewing of prototypes. Axure requires pages to be generated and it can take a few minutes with larger projects to see and test any components you’ve built. This can become frustrating and time consuming, especially when a newcomer to the product. Justinmind Prototyper is definitely worth some exploration. I will be testing it over coming week.

    Looks good but pretty pricy at $500! Interested to read your full review.

    It seems to me, these tools are looking and behaving each day, more and more like a WYSIWYG html editors, soon dreamweaver will show up in a top 10 prototyping tool list… But then, that’s just me, who only recently has started working seriously with wireframes.

    I just came accross your blog and wanted to ask if you had tried out Pidoco. Our tool is cheaper than Justinmind and can be used for collaborative projects online. There are lots of great tools out there and it does take some exploring to see which one is right for your project. http://www.pidoco.com/free
