The key to successful application design and development is getting your ideas out quickly and testing them through an iterative approach, refining your apps structure with each iteration. Rapid prototyping is the process of quickly mocking up your user interface so you can start testing the interactions, proportions, and navigation flow of your app on a target device. This course covers how to rapidly develop wireframes and interactive prototypes of your app using Adobe Fireworks. By the end of this course, you will have a solid foundation in information architecture and interaction design, and know how to develop prototypes to test out your apps concepts.
