Update 10/10/2016: Lookback has transitioned all of its existing plans to a paid model. For plans and free trial information, please visit their pricing page. From an announcement by Lookback’s CEO: “The transition to paid will roll out in stages from here on, and everybody who’s been using our cloud offering for free up until now will be given a grace period to decide which plan to switch to. We will not suddenly force you to start paying and shut you out from your data. Your data will remain safe with us long beyond the grace period is over, should you decide not to upgrade immediately to a paid plan.”

We’re excited to introduce the first in a series of usability testing features in InVision—mobile user testing (beta). Now, you can have users test your prototypes directly from their iPhone while recording their interactions, seeing their faces, and hearing their voices. Plus, it’s absolutely free and unlimited—forever!

 

When your mobile prototypes are ready for usability testing, simply click the User Test button in your project to text your user a link. Their camera and microphone will be on, so you can see and hear your user’s feedback.

To get started with the InVision Viewer app, you’ll need to download the InVision Viewer app from the App Store. If you’ve received a User Testing link, you should automatically be prompted to download the app if it isn’t already installed.

After installing, you’ll need to login if you’re a designer installing the app manually. Otherwise, you’ll be taken to the prototype you’ve been asked to test if you followed a User Testing link.

Note: While we’re in beta, we strongly recommend testers only use iPhone 6 / 6+.

You can also download this app yourself and have access to all your mobile projects and preview Apple Watch prototypes on your iPhone, making previewing and sharing from your device better than ever.

This is just the first of both a larger mobile app push and user testing suite we’ll be launching in the next few months, so stay tuned!
