Most people struggle to see how a series of clicks come together to form an interaction. It’s much easier for people to understand what’s going on if they can visualize it in someone. With Solidify, you can quickly share critical design pieces of your app or website to help give stakeholders and others involved a clearer picture.
As seen in the following example, It doesn’t have to be an actual website or the entire app. It could be a moment, a simple click, or a specific series of clicks. Or it could be a quickly whipped up design that helps you understand the actual interactions involved. You can then share these small interactive snippets with your team through an email or IM.
Presenting static screens without the interactions limits your audience from seeing the intent of your product. Using wireframes to assemble a clickable prototype prevents this. With Solidify, you can have potential users click through your wireframes. This will let you focus on creating solid interactions with the data you collect.
As you can see in this example, interactions become very clear with defined elements and functions. Use your wireframe prototype to document the functionality of an app (and engineers will rejoice!). You’ll also be able to collect comments on specific pages to highlight interactions that might not be working well.
Sometimes it’s important to do full mock-ups to get a complete sense of how an application will function before you waste time building it. Engineering time can be costly especially if your app isn’t fully utilized.
As you can see in this example, Solidify allows you to present clickable visualizations that create the feeling of a real app. This will help designers move a project forward without having to know heavy code. It’s also a great way to inspire a team to follow through. You’ll not only be using visual prototypes that are clickable, but you’ll actually be visioneering.
