Last month, we announced a new feature in TryMyUI that optimizes user feedback for prototypes and wireframes. Wireframes traditionally lack many of the design and visual elements that real people outside your project team rely on to make sense of a website or application. This poses a special challenge when it comes to usability testing on wireframes. If users have the wrong expectations during usability testing, they may be confused and unsure about how to respond to what they are seeing. That’s why TryMyUI allows you to specify if the test will be done on a prototype, wireframe or live site. TryMyUI then provides extra guidance behind the scene to testers to ensure that you receive quality feedback.
But did you know there’s a wireframing tool designed to build fully functional dynamic prototypes without any coding? Meet Justinmind Prototyper. Using Justinmind Prototyper and TryMyUI, you have at your fingertips a powerful set of DIY testing tools that enable you to take full advantage of the benefits of first design iterations using a high-fidelity wireframing software ready for user experience testing within TryMyUI.com’s remote usability testing tool.
Wireframes and mockups have been used to think and define websites or web applications before their implementation. But with the coming of the Web 2.0, dynamic websites or RIA, you need to think everything from UI to conditional navigation or the type of interactions you want to use. Mockups or even clickable wireframes, however, may not be enough. Justinmind Prototyper lets you create Rich Interactive Application prototypes with simple drag and drop plus have access to a range of reusable templates. You can also integrate real data and simulate their behaviors through datamasters and datagrids. Ultimately, it simulates real conditional navigation, like functional login pages.
Here’s an example of a TryMyUI’s tester giving “think aloud” feedback on a prototype created using Justinmind.
Justinmind has got you covered on the front end by enabling you to quickly create high-fidelity prototypes and wireframes. And TryMyUI’s got your back covered by setting expectations and communicating with users the purpose of prototypes and wireframes. Since we’ve got you fully covered, go out there and get the insights from putting your earliest designs in front of users for testing.
