We are go!
Designing mobile applications and websites can be a tricky thing. Tricky in the sense that there’s more to consider, like context, screen size, touch, gestures and more. One of the best ways to create a great mobile experience is through prototyping early and often, as well as getting user feedback. Nothing beats seeing your designs on a mobile device.
Many times prototyping for mobile is overlooked because it may cost too much, take too much time or proper tools aren’t available. We’re looking to change that with FieldTest. We want to make it easy for people to create high-fidelity mobile prototypes quickly, without interrupting the way people already work. We want to compliment a design workflow, not redefine it.
Last week we took our site live and started sharing publicly what we’re working on. While things may still be a little rough around the edges, there are enough features for people to start seeing the value in FieldTest and we’re just getting started. We have a ton of ideas, but we’re looking to people using FieldTest to help us prioritize.
The team working on FieldTest is made up of designers and developers who have been working in the mobile space for several years. It’s been great to see the adoption numbers for mobile skyrocket and see how it’s changing the way we interact with the world. A huge part of that is because of the mobile apps and websites being created. We’re extremely excited to potentially play a role in the process.
