Mockplus is a new and fast-growing rapid prototyping tool. Although Mockplus is not as comprehensive as Axure RP functionally, it has a lot of unique features.
Testing could be a really painful thing in some prototyping tools, especially when it is for an App prototype. However, Mockplus can solve this problem easily. In terms of testing, you have 8 ways to test your prototype in Mockplus. Comprehensive and pretty useful. Please allow me to introduce how to test your prototype in Mockplus.
Method 1: Preview
Applied scenarios: While designing, “Preview” could show the results rapidly.
Operation: Press “F5″ while designing.
Demonstration environment: Mockplus software client.
Method 2: Publish Online as an H5 Web App
Applied scenarios: Test prototype in browser.
Operation: Click “Publish” on the top toolbar. After publishing, there will be a URL. Copy this link, send it to your colleagues and client to test your prototype.
Have a try on this one: http://run.mockplus.com/demo/index.html
Demonstration environment: Web browser.
Method 3: Export to HTML5 Offline
Applied scenarios: When you’re offline, you can still test the prototype in browsers. Meanwhile, you could also deploy the HTML5 package to server for sharing within your team.
Operation: “Menu” > “Export” > “Expor to HTML”.
Demonstration environment: Browser.
Method 4: Export to Demo Package
Applied scenarios: Testing your prototype offline. Demo package provides the enviroment of Mockplus, therefore, testing results will be very similar to design. No longer affected by browsers compatibility issues.
Operation: “Menu” > “Export” > “Export to demo package”.
Demonstration environment: Demo package could run independently.
Method 5: Input View Code in Mobile Client App
Applied scenarios: After publishing to the cloud, send the four-letter view code to colleagues and clients. Input the view code and testing prototype online.
Operation: Click “Publish” on the top toolbar. There will be a view code after publishing, and you can send it to your colleagues and clients.
Demonstration environment: Mockplus client App.
Method 6: View Prototypes on Mobile by Scanning QR Code
Applied scenarios: Scan QR code while designing to test prototype offline. Alternatively, sacn QR code after the published project opened in browsers.
Operation: Use Mockplus client App to scan QR code while designing. Use QR scanner (but not Mockplus client App) in mobile devices to scan the code, and send the screenshot to colleagues or clients.
Demonstration environment: Browser (Mockplus client app will be needed for scanning while designing)
Method 7: Export to Images
Applied scenarios: Demonstration and static wireframe testing.
Operation: “Menu” > “Export” > “Export to images” with JPG or PNG two formats.
Demonstration environment: Image or Slide playing software.
Method 8: Export Project Tree
Applied scenarios: Export the whole project tree to multiple formats, including Mind Map, Tree View, Text, CSV, HTML, Markdown, and XML. This function is very useful for PRD writing.
Operation: “Menu” > “Export” > “Export Project Tree”.
Demonstration environment: Image or slide playing software, and text editing tools.
