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 hosting means you don't need anything else in order to share your mockups with one, or a hundred people.

• 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, 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
2. Follow installation instructions
3. Enter PIN 1234 5678
4. Tap through the mockup!

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.

Customer Reviews

Good, but can be improved

Needs iPhone 5 and iPad support badly… and a way to retain pins on device so I don't have to type them in everytime. Also more transitions (fade, flip). Otherwise super useful app!

March 2013 no 640x1136 screen support (iPhone 5)

As of March 24th 2013 this app doesn't support screens at the iPhone 5 resolution of 640x1136 at 326 ppi. Not worth buying if you are doing any work targeting the most current hardware. This limitation along with the price makes this app overvalued.

This product has been abandoned

Save your money. It had potential, but it hasn’t had an update in over two years.
