Axure garners rave reviews from the design community and is one of the leading tools for rapid prototyping in use today. With Axure one can easily create wireframes and clickable prototypes. Additional enhancements to Axure (e.g. the Repeater widget and Adaptive Views) as well as AxShare (e.g. AxShare Plugins) and the AxShare Mobile App, provide a new level of prototyping excellence.

To begin, this book provides you with a rapid introduction to Axure’s interfaces and adaptive views and quickly familiarizes you with pages, panes, and the design area. After a brief introduction to Axure, this book will help you to develop the capabilities to build simple to more complex interactive prototypes. This goal will be accomplished with a quick run through of Axure's fundamentals, followed by an exploration of detailed blueprints of different prototypes. From there, you'll walk through creating common interactions for a header, an interactive carousel, right column feed to social media channels, and a footer for a community site prototype. You'll also learn how to build a Content Aggregator, pulling together information from multiple sources and a sample portfolio prototype. You’ll learn to incorporate social media feeds from Facebook and Twitter and also build a photo contest for a Facebook application. Towards the end of the book you'll utilize the Repeater Widget to build an eCommerce prototype.

This book will exhibit to novice as well as experienced users, common design patterns for exploration and continued learning. Equipped with these new design patterns and methods, readers can complete engaging interactive projects faster.

  • Optimize designs for desktop, tablet and mobile viewports with Adaptive Views
  • Build mastery of Repeater widgets and interactions
  • Expand Axure’s core interactions by using AxShare Plugins with JavaScript
