Understanding Prototyping tools- Why and Where Canvas Flip fails

Understanding Prototyping tools...

Prototyping tools are essential tools for every UI and UX designer. After designing the interface for an app or website, designers can quickly create a mockup and validate their design using a prototyping tool. Uploading screens on this tool helps them create hotspots to link screens, assign interactions and check the overall flow of the product. Several prototyping tools are available online. Invision, Marvel, Proto.IO and Canvas Flip are some of the popular tools for such tasks.

Let us talk about Canvas Flip. It is not a regular prototyping tool. It comes bundled with useful analytical tools also which aid in designing a better user experience be it apps or websites. Despite its unique features Canvas Flip does come with a few shortcomings which we will be discussing ahead.

When we log into Canvas Flip, the interface is divided into 2 segments. The First segment is where screens are uploaded and gestures and transitions are assigned. This is where all the prototyping takes place.
