Ratings and Reviews

$1 for complimentary app. rlly?


This app should be free. Period. Don't be greedy.
Major features are missing as of now - no mirroring, no scaling.
Tried to open prototype from dropbox or mail with no luck.

How the does this work?


No instructions, no idea what to do to connect it with the Compositor desktop app.

Developer Response

Hi tsunamiFury, sorry for the lack of instructions! I'm working on adding in-app help to describe how to import your .kite documents into the app and play them back.

To open documents with Kite Compositor, you can use iTunes File Sharing, iCloud Drive, or simply email them to yourself. For example, by tapping on a .kite file in iCloud Drive – you can export it to Kite Compositor using the Share Sheet.

To play an animation document, simply tap it in the document chooser. To end playback, shake the device or swipe up from the bottom edge.

If you have further questions on anything, please feel free to contact me a :)

Works great


This is a super fast way to prototype high fidelity animations on your device. It works with iCloud Drive, so if you’re editing a Kite doc on your computer and save it there, it’ll automatically be pulled and updated here. Great for on-device prototyping. Since everything is based on Core Animation, it’s a 1:1 replication of what your actual device animations will look like in shipping code.
