Advice on Avocado, Framer, and Origami

Needs advice


I want to prototype an app for a school project. I need to test the app from a distance, so it's multiple user tests from different locations when I'm only there online. What do you think is the best combination of tools available? I want to record the user sessions. It should be responsive on different viewports for phones, and it's should be interactive (e.g., testers can actually type in a text box).

Thanks in advance for your advice, looking forward to it. Please also tell me the "why" behind the choice. - Joey

Hey Joey, I would advise you to use framer. It lets you create realistic prototypes and this allows you to capture usage especially errors from form inputs in a realistic manner as compared to static screens. With framer, you can easily connect to user testing apps such as by the click of a button, run your tests and get the best feedback possible.

I hope this helps.

    What is Avocado?

    Avocado is an open source interaction design toolbox built by​ IDEO.​ It ​enables designers to make quick interactive prototypes without writing a line of code.​ ​Built on top of Facebook's Origami framework, Avocado provides ready-to-use patches that can be easily combined to create fully-customized prototypes.​ Official announcement:

    What is Framer?

    Framer is a JavaScript framework that makes creating realistic prototypes a breeze – complete with filters, spring physics and full 3D effects. Framer Generator is a desktop app that imports the resources and folder hierarchy from Photoshop files (Sketch coming soon). Import your design and immediately start to add interaction and animation.

    What is Origami?

    Origami is a free toolkit for Quartz Composer—created by the Facebook Design team—that makes interactive design prototyping easy and doesn’t require programming.
