Tools from the Arsenal of a Mobile App Designer
What Tools Do Professional Mobile App Designers Choose?
With so many tools available everywhere, choosing the best solution for your particular type of mobile app can be challenging.
The good news is that we refine the best options that mobile app designers have.
Sketch is a lightweight tool based on Mac / UI for modern application designers. It is more like Adobe Photoshop, but is mostly used for prototyping and has the largest share of wireframe space.
The download size is about 20 megabytes, does not take up too much system resources, can export resources very quickly. In the end, you only have to buy it once and then renew your license every year. You can not use it to make animations. However, it is a great choice for most application designers.
Adobe Experience Design and (XD)
XD is a direct competitor to Sketch. If you are a fan of PC and have been looking to use Sketch, but are limited by their ability to support the Mac, then this is good news.
XD basically provides all the features of prototyping, wireframe and more.
XD is very fast and easy to use. Although it is still in print preview and does not have the same features as all other new products, and in this state, it supports only the Windows 10 upgrade, but many mobile designers already use and enjoy it. XD is very promising.
Axure RP is a full-fledged design tool for professional designers. It provides you with all the resources you need to create your app from start to finish. For sure, that does not mean it's perfect.
In addition to creating prototypes, it also lets you design wireframes, templates, creative frames, flowcharts, characters, user journeys, graphics and documents, and more.
If you're a code monster and want to do some programming, it make it possible for you to code and also allows you to add ready-made components and libraries to help you create better designs.
With a wide range of prototyping models, you can use Proto.io to make your job easier. It is easy to use because no coding is required. More importantly, you can import interface components from Sketch or Photoshop.
You may use the Timeline feature to create interesting animations to show the application flow across different screens. It is simple and elegant. Proto.io has many features.
Do you have features in Google Drive or Dropbox? Proto.io lets you synchronize them easily to help you streamline your workflow. These fun features of Proto.io can not be lost - even if it's a web application, you can actually use it when you're not online.
Share Your ideas
Prototypes bring your new ideas to life. You definitely do not need to use all these program options, just choose the one that suits you the most and build your first prototype. This will help you economise on the development. When the prototype is ready? Do not hesitate to contact us - we will transform your prototype into a fully fledged mobile app.
