I have been taking an entrepreneurship class in college, and it has been a fun experience. Throughout the class, I have been tasked with coming up with potential business ideas and how to best turn them into reality.
One stage of coming up with a business idea is prototyping it, and seeing how it would work in actuality. This is a difficult thing to do, but if you are able to build a prototype, it puts you one step closer to having a product. Also, having a prototype allows you to debug any issues before the actual product is built.
In the class, we were introduced to the website called Marvel App, which is a great prototyping tool. I really enjoy using the App because it does not require any coding expertise, and it is simple to use no matter what background you have. There is both a free and paid version of the app, but the free version is fine if you are just starting out. Basically, the difference between the two versions is that the free version only allows you to keep one prototype at a time, while the paid version lets you build unlimited prototypes (if you want to prototype multiple ideas).
Another great thing about Marvel App is that you can build on different platforms; for example, they allow you to build prototypes for Macs, IPhones, Androids, etc., which is potentially really useful. If you have ever had a great business idea but didn’t know how to get started with it, I think Marvel App is a great starting point!
