ForeUI prototyping tool

ForeUI is another prototyping tool that allows you to build functional prototypes of interactive products.

What sets this tool apart from all the others is that it's skinnable - that is, you can change the look and feel of you prototype. Currently, it provides Windows, Mac, hand-drawn and a schematic wireframe theme.

The tool runs on Windows, Mac OS X, Linux and Solaris.

Review of online usability testing service

Konigi has a review of the online usability testing service UserTesting. It outlines how the service works, its advantages and disadvantages. The main advantages are time and money savings. The main disadvantages are that you are at the mercy of the service to follow through with your screening request and that you cannot ask follow up questions during the test sessions.

Prototyping with PowerPoint: Five productivity tips

In this YouTube video, Kris Jordan shares five tips on how to use PowerPoint for fleshing out quick and dirty prototypes:

1. Have a separate PowerPoint with a palette of all the widgets and shapes you need

2. Use master pages to hold common elements shared by multiple screens

3. Use PowerPoint's feature for coping and pasting styles to maintain a consistent look

4. Use hyperlinks to simulate interaction

5. Fake mouseover effects with Action Templates

In the video, you can see a lengthy example of how Kris builds a prototype of a iPhone application.
