Prototyping Tools 2012 - Axure RP 6.0 or iRise Studio

Hi all,

My first post on IXDA.

I realise that this point is raised periodically but wanted to get a quick verdict on the most popular prototyping and wireframe creation tools. 

Criteria is that we are designing enterprise, transactional applications and platforms - with complex interactions and logic and our designers are using mixture of Mac and Pc as their workstations - so ideally I want something multi platform compatible. 

Tools under the microscope are;-

Introducing the 2012 IxDA Board of Directors

On February 4 2012 the new Board of Directors took effect. In doing so we said farewell to three Directors: Kendra Shimmell, Joe Sokohl, and our out-going President, Janna DeVylder.

Joe Sokohl has served on the Board of Directors for the past 2 years, filling roles in Communications and most recently as Secretary. He has worked energetically to engage with the broader UX community, strengthening our connections with other associations around the world.

Get involved in UX research! Online Survey (available in english, german or french)

 

Hi Everyone,

As part of my PhD thesis, I am collecting responses to a questionnaire survey on User eXperience. More than 100 Usability/UX researchers and practitioners have already been invited to perform this exercise and most of them agree on the fact that there is still a definite need for a standardized definition of the term UX.

By sharing your views on UX, your participation in this survey will help bringing the concept of UX to maturity.

Changing Usernames

Hi all

Im an interaction/ux designer with a background in graphic design, so have limited technical knowledge when it comes to development. My client, who is a large website with alot of registered members, wants to know the best practise around allowing users to change their usernames. The reason is that their customers are complaining that their usernames are too long when they have to use touchscreens, when they were fine to type out on a keyboard, so want to be able to change their usernames.

Your comments would be much appreciated!

Jeanne
