As an entrepreneur, product designer and product manager for people management and predictive analytics software, I have seen a number of problems related to creating useful products, and getting things done. I decided to keep track of some common scenarios. All views are mine. Not my employers'.

Simulating Page Loading In An iPad Prototype Makes It Feel Like A Real App
While building iPad prototypes using @AxureRp I use a simple technique to make users feel like they are seeing a real iPad app. I deliberately display a page loading animation for a second just to give them the illusion that they are seeing a real app, even though they know very well that it is only a prototype. It helps the audience visualize the final design of the app, and helps me convey the possibilities.
Here is a video of how I do it.
Here is a sample gif file in case you want to use it. You should be able to right click and save this file, if you want to use it in your prototypes.
