Yet another prototyping tool

Better UX:
The estimated time to read this article is less than a minute

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.
