Description

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.
