Whereas most designers work with InVision and Marvel, it’s laborious to show these designs right into a quantitative take a look at. Maze isn’t a video recording instrument and doesn’t require you to look at video footage.
It isn’t a brand new prototyping instrument both because the startup desires you to maintain utilizing InVision and Marvel. Maze can report a consumer path from an internet browser on desktop or cellular with out having to put in something.
After establishing your take a look at, you possibly can share a hyperlink with a bunch of customers.

The corporate has raised a $470,000 pre-seed spherical with Partech and Seedcamp (£350,000). Maze makes use of a software-as-a-service method with a restricted free plan and a number of paid subscriptions.
I performed with the product for a couple of minutes and it’s a elegant expertise. You wouldn’t count on that from such a younger startup. Whereas I’m not a designer, I feel many designers are most likely going to make use of it repeatedly.
