Userbrain works with any prototyping tool, that allows you to share a public link. Simply put, if you can link to it, you can test it. 

Here's how to test your Sketch prototypes with Userbrain: 

  1. View your document in Sketch Cloud. 
  2. To open the Document Settings hover over the document you want to share and click on the "more options" icon (the three dots in the top-right corner.  
  3. At "Who can view this document?" Select "Anyone with the link and people you've invited".
  4. Make sure that all the check-boxes below are deselected. 

How to disable hotspots 

Clicking anywhere on the screen while viewing your prototype will highlight any Hotspots or Links, To share a Prototype preview without hotspots enabled, hover over the Prototype thumbnail in the documents overview, click on the "" button and choose Copy link to Prototype with Hotspots disabled.

  • InVision
  • Framer
  • Zeplin 
  • Flinto Lite
  • Axure 
  • Adobe XD
