Hi. I'm designing for the web application and I'm looking for the right prototyping tool for it. I could see Invision seems pretty much dominating in this field but it has limitation, especially in illustrating interactive part (e.g. button hover state, page transition, etc.). As I research for the tool, pretty much everything is only focusing on mobile and it seems that I'm left with atomic.io as the only option, which I didn't like so much. Do you have any other recommendation? :( Thanks in advance.
I love using Webflow for prototyping web apps. They have powerful interactions that are very easy to work with.
I also use Webflow for prototyping or client work. It's great but I wanted something where I can just import assets from Sketch and draw some interactions like Invision. But since Invision doesn't have layers (I need some finer control on interaction), I think I'm sticking to Webflow for now :(. Thanks
Justinmind, is the only one I found that does what you are looking for.
Either that or InVision.
Axure is very popular with many people (Personally I hate it).
I use Pinegrow, which is a visual html editor. It does require some knowledge of html/css but not expert level and has some fantastic options for fast prototyping. I also use lots of jquery for animations and interactions which allow me to rapidly build quite complex prototypes.
Macaw is a drawing html app, it is getting better and better, but still pretty limited in my opinion.
Sadly most of rich prototype tools still focused on mobile. I believe FramerJS is a good option for desktop/web apps
pixate.com is a good bet.
marvelapp.com is good, but probably more similar to Invision than you want.
I actually really like Atomic.io.
+1 for Atomic.
And FramerJS. Framer is baller! So many resources and code enables you to do anything you want.
Yup I wanna try out Framer, but was wondering if it'd be good for web app prototyping. And since it's code base, I thought at this point I'd rather just prototype in html/css/js. Any advantage in using Framer instead of html/css?
Got it. Yeah I actually use Atomic.io for web app stuff. Super solid.
I found doing desktop size stuff in Framer to be a lot of extra work. Granted it's been probably a year since I last used it.
I actually have pixate but it's still mobile centric (it doesn't have hover state). I tried to like Atomic but it's really buggy :(.
