Do you think your kick-ass app idea is going to top the app store chart once built as an app?
Do you want to present your idea to the potential investors, clients or team members in the cheapest way possible?
Do you want to have an app without actually having an app?
Most of the people feel that making an app or creating a website is a child’s play.
It is quick and easy.
So why not just go with the flow and get it launched?
After investing a huge amount of time and money into developing a particular website, app or an interface, somehow you don’t find it perfect.
You are mostly happy with it but there a couple of things that you’d like to add, remove or change.
At times the requirements aren’t clearly specified by the clients at the initial stage during designing a certain app, website or an interface. Hence, the last minute changes can increase the overall cost of development making it more complicated and difficult.
The fact is ‘Quick, Cheap and Good’ is a myth.
You cannot have all the three at once.
You can always have it quick but that will cost you extra dollars and the outcome of the website might be faulty.
You can opt for a cheaper approach but it will cost you on the quality and time.
Or you can go with the traditional approach:
Time + Money = Good Quality
After a few years of developing websites you must have easily adapted to certain issues that tend to pop up quite easily.Hence, you make sure you have everything in place before you launch it.
But at times even slightest of mistakes can even go unnoticed.
You surely don’t want to look back and know you could have done better.
Why not prototype your ideas before you jump into the real thing?
A vast landscape of modern prototyping tools could be overwhelming when deciding to build your prototype. It is easy to stick with the tools you are familiar with but there are a lot of new tools available in the market worth exploring.
Win the race against time and money as you prototype.
Showcase your idea through prototyping tools like Balsamiq before going for the real app.
Whether you are an entrepreneur, designer or a student, Balsamiq makes it easier and to present, share and explain your app or website ideas.

How Balsamiq helps you execute?
A simple tool with a simple interface, Balsamiq enables you to design interactive web application prototypes that actually look like the real apps.The Balsamiqmockup feels like drawing on a sheet of paper. You can easily rearrange stuff and iterate the design in the real time and can sit back and work with their team members on the wireframes in one go.

A few of theBalsamiq versions also has a revision or iteration history through which you can keep a track on the changes made.
#3. Collaborate with your Colleagues

A Cheap, Easy and Fast approach towards prototyping of your app will lead to an achievable quality triangle – Fast, Cheap and Good.
Do you want to create a flawless app, website or an interface rich in features?
The same cannot be achieved without valuable feedback. Hence, a prototype is highly essential to ensure that the project stands out and gets noticed.
