What makes this better than, say Marvel?
Are there any main differences from POP?
POP is mostly just for using paper mockups and it shows. Its a great product, but Prott proves a lot easier to use with the web interface, while still retaining the ability to edit on mobile.
Its also really well-designed too, so its at least worth checking out with a free account.
Oh my God. There's already more than 100 prototyping tools on the market, and here we go, one more that adds nothing other than a fancy video with a soundtrack that is supposed to appeal to us and the smiling faces of people who still paper prototype in 2014 and have always something to comment on. Sorry, this tool looks to me sort of a social network for UX-wanna-be's, I would certainly not take it into consideration as a productivity tool for professional designers.
Unwarranted negativity and douchebaggery aside, you've been designing for a long time, so you surely must remember just a few years ago when there were no prototyping tools.
I think having 100 is much better than one, or two, or none. More competition will trigger more innovation, and prototyping tools will get better. That's something everyone benefits from.
Maybe you missed Barry Schwartz's talk, I'd recommend it to you: http://www.ted.com/talks/barry_schwartz_on_the_paradox_of_choice?language=en
My first findings:
- Make prototypes on your iPhone, just like POP
- Work with fixed headers and footers, just like Flinto (but without snapping to pixels)
- Native Mac, Windows app (DMG doesn't work on my Mac)
POP was launched way back than Prott did, Advantage of Prott is that you have a web app which make prototyping bit easier than on the mobile. I'm not quite sure if they have the same for POP. + there are some additional features like setting scroll pints etc...
Check both of them. Prott is pretty awesome for me. I have been using since they released the beta version.
Choose your app name wise! "prot" in Dutch means "fart". So, here you've got another fart app.
Does anybody know where I can buy the markers that they use for shading on paper? Or at least the name of said markers…?
I don't know exactly what they are using in the video, but what you are looking for might be alcohol based markers. Coptic is the high end (and refillable), but there are other cheaper brands as well. http://www.amazon.com/Copic-Markers-12-Piece-Cool-Gray/dp/B000MRR3RE (Not a referral link)
Yeah I think these might be the ones. Thanks a million!
I'm always surprised by how many prototyping tools never support computer-sized prototypes, or make it an afterthought.
I got the same remark in head while watching their video.
Landing page looks good! That cut off macbook though =/
I wish there's a way you can pause the video in the back. It's cool for the first min. or so and I can see some of use case and real UI, but it becomes distracting very quickly....
