index. We made this using an unstyled information-less document set-up from the instructor in 90 minutes, from idea of what kind of topic to search to navigating Fireworks, a program we’ve never used before, then uploading a working prototype of the site using images linked together with html.

This is the first iteration. There are elements, icons that are generic place holders (from the google search for icons) and typography fairly basic. This Fireworks document has interactivity through the creation of “hot spots” (Adobe Fireworks * Hotspots, image maps, and rollovers.). Fireworks is a bit-map editing tool, but also a web building tool and a prototyping tool. Its common library has icons for arrows, dialog boxes, etc. that make prototyping a breeze.

naomikirabradly Naomi, Kira and Bradly acheived their “A” for the day by doing solid prep work, defining what they wanted their app to do and created this efficient prototype that’s worth looking at.

This app assignment is based on the principles for good apps: location, social, big data, special offers and meaningful interactivity and inspired by Sosh App. Sosh App Launches In New York City – Business Insider.

Below, I have some screenshots from the instructor’s presentation on the usefulness of Fireworks and exporting settings to have on.
