Prototype V6.0

We are on Version 6 of our prototype testing already! The feedback so far is giving us fantastic direction and navigational insights. Already drafting V7.1 as I type this (V7 has just been done in Flinto which we are moving away from in favour of Invision App). Two gifs of V6.0 is shown below with an android interface but V7.1 will be an iOS interface as further to development tools and supports open to us, our team have decided to focus solely on an iOS app for release late next year. Loads to do yet so back to the drawing board as it were!

Virtual Machines, OS X & Sketch

I am amazed that I have come this far in life without ever having used an Apple computer. Well that has all changed now but alas I am currenty not in a position to purchase, loan or even have a timeshare in a macbook at the moment!!! What I really need is a workaround which the internet gladly shared with me.

Hooray for the virtual machine!! I have spent a productive part of my reading week following the instruction’s on Martijn Schoenmaker‘s blog entry titled “How I started Using Sketch App in Windows” which provided all the information I needed to get set up OS X on my acer laptop. Once I had it up and running, I was then able to install the Sketch app which was the easy bit. While there is no guarantee that this solution works for everyone and granted my laptop is straining under the weight of OS X, it is an affordable way into the world of Apple and apple only programs for those of us on a shoestring.

Freshly installed, I have taken a quick break to pen this article before beginning at the basics in Sketch. I have heard and seen great results from this app so I am super excited to see what I can achieve once I get stuck in. Wish me luck!
