Good UX Means Good Business
In a world where technology is rapidly advancing and user expectations are rising, it’s no longer enough to have an average user experience; to delight your users and surpass your competition you must strive for the exceptional.
Fortunately, Axure has a newer feature that allows for easy distribution of prototype files. AxShare, using Amazon Web Services, was developed by Axure as a way to generate prototype files to the cloud for others to view. Simply create an account, upload a prototype – 10 MB or less – and within a minute or so, a URL is generated that you can send to others for review. You can add password protection if desired. There’s also a discussion feature, though currently not very robust, that allows viewers to add page-based comments to the prototype.
One limitation is that you cannot have more than 10 active prototypes in your account, which shouldn’t be a big deal unless you like to save prototypes as examples. Another potential concern is that each version of your prototype generates a new URL, so if you are doing rapid prototyping with frequent reviews, you don’t have one place that people can go to see the latest and greatest.
