Proto.io is a prototyping tool for creating interactive mobile apps.https://dudodiprj2sv7.cloudfront.net/product-logos/0A/it/AVFIV5PWJ5JK.PNGCan't find a better prototyping softwareI use Proto.io to build prototypes for the software that our company develops (both via the web and mobile apps). We don't have a de facto UX design or research team per say, but Proto.io allows me to build very intricate and interactive prototypes that I can show the developers. It's a great tool that makes it easy to bring ideas to life.,Proto.io has more features than pretty much every other prototyping software I looked at. Many other vendors excel in one area, but Proto.io does it all it seems. There are so many different ways to build live and interactive prototypes. You can easily build and manage multiple projects. Proto has several templates to start with in terms of screen sizes, from computer monitors down to the different iPhone screens, as well as Android devices. It's really easy to share prototypes with other members in the company, and they don't even have to be users in Proto. The previewing option is great as well, but Proto makes it even more simple by allowing you to just copy and paste a link to share with others.,To this point, I really have no complaints with Proto.io. The software itself is feature-rich, so the learning curve is probably steeper than it would be with some other products. That being said it's totally worth it because Proto.io can do everything I need it to do.,9,Proto.io has helped us to become more strategic about how we design our software, both in terms of styling and functionality. Being able to create prototypes opens a lot of doors for us to show the dev team how we want the software to behave.,Adobe XD,Google Ads (formerly AdWords), Bing Webmaster Tools, Google AnalyticsProto.io makes wireframe design fun, simple, and enjoyable!Proto.io is used mostly in our development group though has been used across the whole organization at points. It is currently being used to develop mobile wireframes and UI mockups for product development. Proto.io helps us to build usable UI's and relevant mobile screens while also allowing us to see potential issues with both.,Proto.io is very interactive and fluid. It allows you to design an entire app, including interface between screens. It has a very robust library of relevant mobile components. The support and help materials for Proto.io make it easy to use this product on your own.,There is a bit of a learning curve and is suited for someone with a development background. Sharing across the organization, if not done properly, isn't the easiest.,8,Proto.io is being used by the entire development group on a fairly regular basis and eliminates the need for paper design. Proto.io's interactive interface and design has helped us to identify UI issues before the actual development stage. Proto.io does not really offer organization charts or workflows and is specific for wireframes and mock ups.,Lucidchart,GoToMeeting, Join.me, Skype for Business (formerly Lync)Proto.io Review.ioUsed it to mock up prototypes of an app that was in the process of being developed.

I use Proto.io to build prototypes for the software that our company develops (both via the web and mobile apps). We don't have a de facto UX design or research team per say, but Proto.io allows me to build very intricate and interactive prototypes that I can show the developers. It's a great tool that makes it easy to bring ideas to life.
  • Proto.io has more features than pretty much every other prototyping software I looked at. Many other vendors excel in one area, but Proto.io does it all it seems. There are so many different ways to build live and interactive prototypes.
  • You can easily build and manage multiple projects. Proto has several templates to start with in terms of screen sizes, from computer monitors down to the different iPhone screens, as well as Android devices.
  • It's really easy to share prototypes with other members in the company, and they don't even have to be users in Proto. The previewing option is great as well, but Proto makes it even more simple by allowing you to just copy and paste a link to share with others.
  • To this point, I really have no complaints with Proto.io. The software itself is feature-rich, so the learning curve is probably steeper than it would be with some other products. That being said it's totally worth it because Proto.io can do everything I need it to do.
Proto.io is the perfect solution for UX/UI designers that need to create and share interactive prototypes. Proto excels at the interactive part. There are so many different ways to make elements change or interact, whether you're viewing the prototype on a computer (mouse clicks) or on a phone (screen touches). We could build and prototype our entire mobile app on here if we wanted to because Proto.io has the customization that we need to make the app look and feel like ours. If you're looking for a software to create wireframes and static mockups, Proto.io is probably overkill for you.

  • Sharing across the organization, if not done properly, isn't the easiest.
Proto.io definitely takes the cake when it comes to mobile and UI design. It allows for interactive clicking thru screens so you can visualize how your app or product will behave. It's support materials make it easy to learn Proto.io on your own though having a development background will make your experience a bit smoother.

  • Easy to implement buttons
  • Easy to go from page to page
  • All around good user experience
  • Would be nice if developers could take the code directly from the program
  • Sometime it was hard to click and drag different assets
  • Mine crashed one time and I lost a days worth of work
Great for testing out real time on your phone. Haven't tried it for web pages.
