Quickly build responsive website and mobile prototypes
Before painstakingly documenting hundreds or thousands of written requirements, capture your requirements visually with an interactive prototype. Prototyping helps you engage the entire team — business stakeholders, product owners, engineers, and end users — so you get the all the feedback you need. And since multiple users can work on the same prototype at once, it gets done in record time. Simultaneously capture and review business requirements in context of the prototype to ensure nothing is missed and you’re building the right software.
Finally - simple responsive prototyping
Easily set responsive behavior for widgets that require it. Just select the alignment and margins you'd like, and that widget will behave accordingly. No coding or complex equations - just set it and go!
Breakpoints in iRise allow you to adjust the content of your prototypes depending on the size of your browser window. Combine breakpoints with widgets responsive behavior, and you can take control of how your prototypes behave.
From lo-fi wireframes to hi-fi prototypes
With iRise you pick the fidelity level. You can create lo-fi wireframes to help sketch out process flow, hot-spot driven prototypes that provide more fidelity and interaction, or hi-fi apps that include data and logic which will mirror the final application you intend to build. We don’t limit your creativity or innovation!
Interactions and animations
Applications are engaging and interactive experiences. If you want your requirements to be accurate, then the experience you give users during requirements gathering needs to mirror that experience. Add navigation, media, rich interactions, business logic, and sample data for a true app experience.
It’s only when people actually interact with a prototype that you uncover design flaws, requirements gaps, and usability errors.
Real data and logic
Choose from a wide range of data operations to create prototypes that behave and respond like a real application. Validate a login attempt, search a catalogue, sort a dynamic list, process an order, calculate a total, and more…all without a line of code.
Create “Instant Wireframes” from your prototypes!
The Instant Wireframe modes in iRise allow you to turn your prototypes into lo-fi wireframes that focus on layout vs color and design. In other tools you’d have to build two versions - with iRise it’s as easy as a few clicks. Modes include:
+ Simple Wireframe
+ Sketched Wireframe
+ Comic Sans Wireframe
Global prototyping widget & asset libraries
Assemble prototypes from a large collection of templates, media, icons, branded UI elements, interactive widgets, and more. You can also customize these libraries to suit your needs or create your own.
Go mobile with mobile libraries, touch events, and on-device review
Create realistic mobile prototypes of smartphone, tablet, and Apple Watch apps that look and act like the real thing from a full library of mobile UI controls. Run prototypes directly on the iPhone or iPad with our free iRise mobile app.
Review changes made to your prototype (and requirements too) using the Audit tab
The Audit tab allows you to review activity for a particular project, screen or requirement/story. For example, you can determine when someone made changes to a page in your prototype, or deleted one. You can also view how a requirement's title, description, priority, release date or any other property value has changed over time. This field-level activity history can be helpful in meeting corporate Compliance as well as Regulatory needs.
