Ratings and Reviews
Indispensable tool for UI dev at a great price
This app is great for mapping UI requirements to storyboards during iOS / OSX development, and for checking those requirements when running on the simulator. You get a lot of great features with this tool for a very reasonable price!
I mainly use this for the Ruler functionality to measure the spacing between UI elements when doing app development.
One feature that would be very helpful would be the ability to “nudge” the ruler around the screen using the arrow keys on the keyboard (and then shift + arrow key moves it 10 pixels in that direction). I’ll definitely re-evaluate my rating if this feature is ever added. The competitor app has it so I was disappointed when I bought this and found out that I couldn’t do this basic task.
Still, for the price, this app is a great alternative to it’s main competitor.
This feature has been added. Thanks for the suggestion.
Also, I love reviews here. But also note I welcome enhancement and support requests to email@example.com I can be much more responsive through that support address.
Can't live without
This app is a must-have utility for UI developers. In my case, it comes in handy translating designs into functioning web pages. The developer is very responsive and the price is so much better than a certain similar tool that shall not be named. Keep up the good work, Chris.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
