Android, Desktop, and Web
Lookback supports every prototyping platform on Android, desktop, and web. You don’t need to do anything special to record a session with a prototype, just treat it like it’s any other Android or desktop app or website! This includes but isn't restricted to:
- Adobe XD
- And any other prototyping tool on Android, desktop, and web
Please Note: Lookback does not support prototyping tools that only offer their own iOS native viewer app. This includes Flinto and Principle.
Tip: If your prototype is web-based and you’re doing a remote research study, you can insert the URL of your prototype into the “Landing page” field when creating a new project, or from the project settings of an existing one. This way, when participants start a test, they’ll be automatically redirected to this URL.
iOS is a bit more complicated and depends how you're recording on Lookback.
In Person iOS
For in-person testing, Lookback can record anything on an Apple iOS device with your Mac using a USB cable. Thus, any prototyping platform can be recorded in-person on iOS.
Remote iOS with Prototypes that Can Be Viewed in a Browser
Lookback Live and Self-Test for iOS both work with any prototype that can be publicly viewed in a browser using a URL. For example, InVision, Marvel, Axure, and Proto.io all allow for prototypes to be accessed via a browser whereas some others can only be viewed within their own app.
To use Lookback with a prototype that can viewed in a browser:
- Go to your project settings (cog icon in upper right when viewing a project).
- Set the URL of the prototype in the Landing page field in the settings pane.
How can I make my iOS prototype full-screen and get rid of the address bar?
Participate on iOS will honor the following html meta tag:
<meta name="apple-mobile-web-app-capable" content="yes">
If your preferred prototyping framework supports this then you will be able to view your prototypes in full-screen mode.
