Not a Serious App : Preview feature does not work

The “preview current scene feature in browser” does not work propertly. This is a rather essential and basic feature. The app gets stuck on one scene and will not allow other scenes to be previewed. I am very disappointed with Hype and would have expected better quality.

Hype would most likely be OK for small, single scene annimations, but beyond that , forget it.
If you are thinking about a serious production situation, you should consider a product intended for professionals, this is “gadget-ware”, something to mess around with while you wait to board a flight.


This is my favorite application for the Mac! And it keeps getting better. Kudos to the developers for this latest iteration!

This is great.

UPDATE FOR v3.5.2 : I can not get over just how much I’ve come to rely on Hype for not just building animations for webpages, but for building entire sites. The scenes and layouts functionality makes it so convenient to design a site that scales to fit any device from a desktop/laptop to tablets to phones. The “Flexible Layout” tools are invaluable - spend time learning how these work and it will pay off big time. I can not wait to see where this tool goes in version 4 and beyond. Devs, if you read this, THANK YOU!

UPDATE FOR v3.5 : This app just keeps getting better and better. I can’t help but be impressed with the latest release. The animations have gotten so smooth, I’ve had clients mistake them for videos at first glance. The flexible and responsive layout options have made Hype so incredibly useful! I can’t say enough good things about it.

I've been teaching Adobe Flash classes at a local community college for the last couple of years and I've been looking for a way to offer some form of HTML 5 training to my students as a starting point for transitioning into the future. I'm going to be spending a lot of time with Hype 2 in hopes that this could be the answer. From the few minutes I've used it so far I've been really impressed with what it's able to do. As someone who's been a Flash developer since the late 1990's, it's refreshing to see an application like this which can offer an experience similar enough to the Flash authoring tool that it makes transitioning compelling and simple. I'm already really excited about the potential Hype offers and can't wait to use it in an upcoming project. Great work, devs!
