Prototypes: iOS, Android, Desktop, and Web

Lookback supports every prototyping platform — prototypes accessed via a browser or within their own app.

You don’t need to do anything special to record a session with a prototype, just treat it like it’s any other native app or website! This includes, but isn't restricted to:

  • Adobe XD
  • Atomic
  • Axure
  • Figma
  • Flinto
  • Framer X
  • InVision
  • Marvel
  • Principle
  • Proto
  • ProtoPie

Testing Prototypes that can be viewed in a Browser

LiveShares and SelfTests both work with any prototype that can be publicly viewed in a browser using a URL on iOS, Android and Desktop.

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

If you've already created your 'Round' you can also click the 'Edit' button beside your 'Round' to add your prototype url as the 'Landing page'.

Then request Participants to:

  • Click the Participant link and start a LiveShare or SelfTest as they normally would.
  • Then, tap ‘Browser’ to view your prototype on iOS and Android

ProTip! Participants will be shown your prototype automatically when the Landing page loads on Desktop.

Testing Prototypes that are viewed in a Native Prototyping App

Both LiveShares and SelfTests work with prototypes viewed in a Native Prototyping App (iOS, Android and Desktop).

To use Lookback with a prototype that’s viewed in a Native Prototyping App:

Then request Participants to:

  • Click the Participant Link.
  • Follow the prompts to grant permissions and start a Lookback LiveShare or SelfTest as they normally would.
  • Then tap ‘Browser’ on iOS and Android and follow the prompts to install the Native Prototyping App (on Desktop Participants will automatically be prompted to install the Native Prototyping App when the session starts)
  • Test your prototype once the Prototyping App has been installed on their device.

Once your participants are done testing your prototype, request that they:

  • Navigate back to Lookback's Participate App (for iOS and Android) or to Lookback's Chrome window (for desktops and laptops)
  • Follow the usual prompts to 'End' the session.

Everything on the participant's device, including Native Prototyping Apps, will be recorded during the session since our Participate App/Extension supports systemwide recording on iOS, Android and Desktop.

Note: On iOS, once the user leaves the Participate Browser, face camera and touch highlights are disabled due to Apple security permissions.
