Prototypes is the best way to share and test your iPhone App mockups. Turn your still mockup images from Photoshop, Illustrator, Fireworks (anything!) into a tappable prototype that runs on iPhone and iPod Touch.

Prototypes helps you…
• Test designs on your iPhone; Are the tap targets right? Does the IA make sense? Do people 'get it'? Find out!
• Get feedback from a client/boss/coworker on mockups they can try in seconds, anywhere in the world
• Demo an app idea to a potential customer or investor before it even exists
• Iterate quickly on App ideas, no code required

If you're a designer, a developer or an 'ideas guy', Prototypes can help. And the fully-integrated ptyp.es hosting means you don't need anything else in order to share your mockups with one, or a hundred people.

Features:
• Rapid construction using connectable hotspots of app flow
• Transition animations between screens for that familiar look and feel
• Completely integrated creation and uploading of Prototypes web apps that run on iPhone and iPod touch
• One click sharing on ptyp.es, fast and secure prototype hosting is included (30 days per prototype)
• Support for 1x and 2x (retina) mockups. You can even drag a PSD file directly :)


Try the results yourself:
1. Point your iPhone or iPod touch to ptyp.es
2. Follow installation instructions
3. Enter PIN 1234 5678
4. Tap through the mockup!


iPad template coming soon in a free update!



Think of the effort, design and development work you can save when everyone on your team (and your clients) can experience the prototype. Prototypes has more great features planned and, like any professional tool, will continue to develop with your valued feedback

Skala Preview is the fastest way to send pixel perfect, colour perfect design previews from your Mac to your iPhone or iPad.

Previewing your design in situ lets you test tap sizes, text sizes, colour, contrast and ergonomics, all at a time where changes can be easily made — during the design process. It closes the loop, meaning you can iterate faster to a better final design.

Please note: This app requires the free Skala View iOS app.

★ Pixel Perfect
Skala Preview sends lossless, colour accurate image previews to any iOS device. Previews are pixel perfect. Colours are identical to how the final app or website will look on the device.

★ Zoom In
Preview at precisely 100%. Zoom to exactly 200% to view a non-Retina iPhone design full screen on an iPhone 4 or 4S. Zooming in shows crisp pixels, not an interpolated, blurry mess.

★ Portrait & Landscape
Preview designs on an iPhone, iPod or iPad in portrait or landscape orientation, and on devices with Retina and non-Retina displays. If you’re creating an iOS app, we have it covered.

★ Realtime Preview
If you’re using Photoshop CS5 12.0.4 or newer, Skala Preview can preview your canvas as you edit. No saving, no keyboard shortcuts, just lossless previews in realtime.
It is the absolute fastest way to preview a design mock up on an iOS device.

★ Send Files & Clipboard
If you’re using Fireworks, Pixelmator, Acorn, another image editor or an older version of Photoshop, Skala Preview can send images via the clipboard or by dragging files to its dock icon or window.

The clipboard is sent automatically, so you don’t have to break your workflow to send — Just copy something and it’ll appear on your iOS device.

★ Multiple Devices At Once
Send to as many iOS devices as you’d like. It’s even possible to view different colour blindness testing, orientation or zoom level on multiple devices at once.

★ Colour Blindness Testing
Ensure your design can be used by those with protanopia, deuteranopia, tritanopia or complete colour blindness.
