Advice and answers from the Lookback Team

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:

  • InVision
  • Marvel
  • Proto.io
  • Flinto
  • Adobe XD
  • Atomic
  • Principle
  • And any other prototyping tool on Android, desktop, and web

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

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 Lookback USB. 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 and Marvel allow for prototypes to be accessed via a browser, while Proto.io doesn't (workaround info below).

To use Lookback with a prototype that can viewed in a browser:

  1. Go to your project settings (cog icon in upper right when viewing a project).
  2. Set the URL of the prototype in the Landing page field in the settings pane.

Remote iOS with Proto.io

If you are testing via Proto.io, you can record through our integration with them by following these directions. Proto.io doesn't support public web links.

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.
