Prototyping with Pixate

Rob Jones, @sugarfreejones, Lead Designer, MutualMobile

Flickable cards on Tinder; awesome animations on Uber. Today's successful mobile apps offer sophisticated microinteractions that make them easier to use, fun and memorable. To get these types of interactions "just right", prototyping has become essential activity for mobile designers.

Pixate is the first app that allows you to easily create prototypes that can be run natively on your iPhone or Android phone. Even if you're not a "coder", I'm pretty sure you will be surprised with what you'll be able to do with Pixate.

We will cover the basic concepts you need to understand to become successful with Pixate; afterwards you should have the knowledge to begin making prototypes on your own.
