Mobile applications are perceptive and a small mistake in the development planning or execution can really spoil even an app with a great prospective. This is one of the main reasons why authentication of the design is important. Not only for mobile apps, it is very important for any new product as user testing and prototyping gives a required green signal to its development. Prototyping is not as pricey as it seems to be and it offers a quick way to turn your design into a reality. The advantages of keeping prototyping as a basis step in app development are many, and they range right from testing the general idea of the solution, user interface and content structure, to look for potential problems and take user trials. When considering the costs of this step, it is a well-known fact now that most of the developers and as well as their clients would rather spend a little extra on prototyping rather than dissolving the whole project in the middle and re-engineer the whole thing due to tribulations like lack of communication in terms of the idea, budget problems and other drawbacks.

When compared to a website prototype, the most significant and basic difference is the availability of wide range of devices – the sizes of those devices, the number of characteristics they have and the different operating systems out there. Mobile apps techniques are different as they require the testing of a number of different kinds of interactions which include touch, zoom, and multiple inputs. Animation is another feature which creates a need of different prototype techniques to be available for mobiles. Third is device testing which means that the developers should be able to test the app on the actual device it is built for.
