We’ve been quietly at work making some changes to FieldTest behind the scenes and prepping for future releases. In the process, we’ve made some updates that should make FieldTest even more useful for creating mobile prototypes. These updates are based in part on the awesome feedback we’ve received from our beta testers.
We’ll be incrementally opening up the beta to more people. You can sign up for early access at fieldtestapp.com.
The updates include:
We’ve made a number of updates to further simplify the interface and make it more flexible for upcoming features. In addition we’ve added a fair amount of UI polish.
Multiple Gestures for Hotspots
We’re doing our best to allow you to test real scenarios that occur in mobile applications. Now you can specify multiple gestures on a single hotspot simply by turning gestures on and off. Each gesture gets its own link and transition.
Previous Screen Option for Hotspot
It’s not uncommon for a mobile application to have screens that can be accessed from many other screens. For example, think of all the ways you can get to a single tweet in the Twitter app.
In that case, you may want the back button to go back to the previous screen, no matter what that screen was. Previously, you had to make multiples of the same screen just to get the back button to go where you wanted. Yuck!
Now, you can select “Previous Screen” when defining a hotspot and no matter where you came from, triggering that hotspot will always take you back a screen.
