Framer vs Pop: What are the differences?

What is Framer? Turn static mockups into prototypes with animation & interaction. Framer is a JavaScript framework that makes creating realistic prototypes a breeze – complete with filters, spring physics and full 3D effects. Framer Generator is a desktop app that imports the resources and folder hierarchy from Photoshop files (Sketch coming soon). Import your design and immediately start to add interaction and animation.

What is Pop? The extensible iOS and OS X animation library behind Facebook's Paper. Pop is an extensible animation engine for iOS and OS X. In addition to basic static animations, it supports spring and decay dynamic animations, making it useful for building realistic, physics-based interactions. The API allows quick integration with existing Objective-C codebases and enables the animation of any property on any object. It's a mature and well-tested framework that drives all the animations and transitions in Paper.

Framer and Pop can be categorized as "Mobile Prototyping & Interaction Design" tools.

Framer and Pop are both open source tools. It seems that Pop with 19.7K GitHub stars and 2.9K forks on GitHub has more adoption than Framer with 5.45K GitHub stars and 506 GitHub forks.

Hey!

I want to prototype an app for a school project. I need to test the app from a distance, so it's multiple user tests from different locations when I'm only there online. What do you think is the best combination of tools available? I want to record the user sessions. It should be responsive on different viewports for phones, and it's should be interactive (e.g., testers can actually type in a text box).

Thanks in advance for your advice, looking forward to it. Please also tell me the "why" behind the choice. - Joey

Hey Joey, I would advise you to use framer. It lets you create realistic prototypes and this allows you to capture usage especially errors from form inputs in a realistic manner as compared to static screens. With framer, you can easily connect to user testing apps such as lookback.io by the click of a button, run your tests and get the best feedback possible.

I hope this helps.
