But by drawing out, you get a chance to refine your user journey, and this is crucial for user experience. Take time to test and get some feedback, you never know what you have missed or needed to include in your sketch. With pen and paper, you’ll save a lot before heading towards design and development.

Prott works similarly like InVision if you have tried, and comes with it’s own price tag depending on your projects.

I simply like Adobe’s layout and look which get’s me in the flow when I’m designing. The good news to all Photoshop lovers is, they have released a UX/UI Prototyping software addition to the Adobe family!
