- THE (TRUE) STORY OF APPCOOKER -
At the crossroads between creation and technology, AppCooker makes a synthesis between those two worlds often kept apart, thus delivering a complete, mobile and accessible solution. The goal: to be able to test an idea for a mobile application in all of its aspects — concept, graphic design, interactive mockup, business plan —, quickly and without coding. AppCooker celebrated its first anniversary on May 31, 2012.
- An app born out of a void -
A few years ago, the founders of AppCooker decided to create an iPhone game. The graphic designer made graphic mockups, which the software developer translated to code. However, very soon they were confronted with what was coming next: marketing their app meant a heap of tasks to fulfill, which they weren’t prepared for. They started looking for a dedicated solution to their issues. Finding none, they decided to create it themselves...
- A bet on the future -
AppCooker was born from the idea that single task oriented software — i.e. word-processing, spreadsheet or design programs — is bound to step aside in favor of multitask programs, more efficient and better adapted to the objectives of specialized users, whose projects are binding in terms of time, money, marketing strategies.
- The user at the heart -
While gathering all the actions necessary to conceive mobile apps in one single place, the designers kept in mind every experience they’d had as users, in order to correct them. Everything they hadn’t been able to do whilst passing from one program to another would be possible, all the wasted time would be spared! Today, the users — who amount up to thousands — are still those who contribute to improving AppCooker through its updates, thanks to their suggestions and constructive feedback.
- Impressive results without coding -
AppCooker’s mockup editor gathers all major graphic design tools: vector shapes, text, bitmap drawing, icon library, images, and all of the UI elements for iPhone and iPad (bars, buttons, objects, etc.). Screens can be linked together with the usual mobile apps linking tools. All of these features allow professionals as well as eager amateurs to end up with an interactive mockup that is visually very close to the final application, in little time and without having to type a single line of code.
- Luxury lies in anticipation -
While the mockup editor is AppCooker’s star, the other fields aiming at refining the original idea, the icon, the business plan and the presence on the App store are not anecdotal. They are easier to use than mainstream programs (i.e. Word or Excel) because they are made especially for the creation of mobile applications: they integrate all of its peculiar constraints. The objective being that, with a global vision of the project, the user has the means never to be taken by surprise.
What's New in Version 2.2
This maintenance release improves AppCooker's reliability and introduce a brand new icon, we hope you like it!
We also add a brand new icon set that has been redesigned to embrace the iOS7 paradigm. AppCooker is now 100% iOS7 ready from head to toe.
Excellent product, fair price
AppCooker is exactly what I was looking for, and I really enjoy using it. The objects (widgets) are really well implemented and configurable. I've experienced creating a 10 screen project. The details in the mock ups are amazing. There is far more utility in AppCooker than just making high fidelity mock ups. You can export PDFs of the screens, or a map layout, or jpegs of screens for sharing your work. There is ample notes areas and project description template for making professional product presentations.
I didn't realize how comprehensive AppCooker was when I got it. It is a thoughtful and respectful user interface. The app has never crashed on me, I've worked AppCooker hard and fast. No problems.
I think every iOS developer should get AppCooker. It's really worth it.
I'm loving it and I have some suggestions....
The app is great and it pays off in a blink of an eye because it's very useful, very good!!!
I have two suggestions and I would give it five stars if those were implemented.
First I would love to switch the wireframe mode on a component that is already in use, so I can build my models using wireframe for the customer approval and later change the whole screen to see the components without the wireframe mode and work on them.
Secondly, when exporting the screens map the app should deselect all the screen. What happens is that I forget the last screen I was working on selected, producing a blue border on the PDF. That blue border causes some confusion when I present the models for the customers.
Great app, but I wish it wasn't limited to iPhone or ipad mock ups
I want to create fully scrollable layouts, but this app limits you to the screen area of iPhone / ipad. This app has so much potential, don't know why they're limiting it to mobile mock ups only. Now I have to find a different mockup tool for my layouts. Normally I would rate lower because I think this is a big mistake on the part of the developer, but it wouldn't be fair. The app is great for what it does.
