In today's market, which is "overwhelmed" by numerous web and mobile applications, it is crucial to thoroughly test an application and understand all its details before starting the programming process. This is where prototyping comes in.

What is a prototype?

A prototype is an initial version of a product that demonstrates the basics of its appearance and functionality. Interacting with the prototype helps identify all the requirements for the application and pinpoint any shortcomings that need to be addressed. While working with the prototype, clients often gain a clearer understanding of what they want to add or remove from the application. Since it is just a prototype, making small changes does not require significant time investment.

Prototypes for mobile devices

While prototyping for desktop products is merely recommended, creating prototypes for mobile applications is mandatory. Mobile devices are used in more varied environments than desktop devices, leading to a wider range of user scenarios and use cases.

The created prototype of the application can also be tested by target users. Based on their feedback, you can improve the app, increasing its chances of becoming popular. Discovering mistakes in UX design during prototype testing can save you a significant amount of time and money.

Advantages of the prototype model: 

  • Saves costs: Ensures that the solution performs as intended, rather than how the developer thinks it should function.
  • Accurate estimations: Helps the developer estimate development costs, timescale, skills, and potential resource requirements.
  • Clarity and precision: Helps eliminate ambiguities and improve the accuracy of interpreting system requirements and functionality.
  • Early problem identification: Helps identify and address problems early on, such as missing or misunderstood features.
  • Client involvement: Gives the client a greater sense of involvement and a better appreciation of the final solution.
