Skala View is the companion app to Skala Preview for Mac — the fastest way to send pixel perfect, colour perfect design previews from your Mac to your iPhone or iPad.
Previewing your design in situ lets you test tap sizes, text sizes, colour, contrast and ergonomics, all at a time where changes can be easily made — during the design process. It closes the loop, meaning you can iterate faster to a better final design.
- Pixel Perfect
Skala Preview sends lossless, colour accurate image previews to any iOS device. Previews are pixel perfect. Colours are identical to how the final app or website will look on the device.
- Zoom In
Preview at precisely 100%. Zoom to exactly 200% to view a non-Retina iPhone design full screen on an iPhone 4 or 4S. Zooming in shows crisp pixels, not an interpolated, blurry mess.
- Portrait & Landscape
Preview designs on an iPhone, iPod or iPad in portrait or landscape orientation, and on devices with Retina and non-Retina displays. If you’re creating an iOS app, we have it covered.
- Realtime Preview
If you’re using Photoshop CS5 12.0.4 or newer, Skala Preview can preview your canvas as you edit. No saving, no keyboard shortcuts, just lossless previews in realtime.
It is the absolute fastest way to preview a design mock up on an iOS device.
- Send Files & Clipboard
If you’re using Fireworks, Pixelmator, Acorn, another image editor or an older version of Photoshop, Skala Preview can send images via the clipboard or by dragging files to its dock icon or window.
The clipboard is sent automatically, so you don’t have to break your workflow to send — Just copy something and it’ll appear on your iOS device.
- Multiple Devices At Once
Send to as many iOS devices as you’d like. It’s even possible to view different colour blindness testing, orientation or zoom level on multiple devices at once.
- Colour Blindness Testing
Ensure your design can be used by those with protanopia, deuteranopia, tritanopia or complete colour blindness.
Quickly test your design with a variety of display brightness settings.

Can't do my job without it!
As a designer this is an invaluable tool for checking my work in real time on all my devices. I've tried other services that claim to do what Skala does but this is the only app that works the way it should.
*Thanks for adding iPhone 6/6+ support!
Essential tool for mobile UI design
Skala View is one of the few essential pieces of my UI design toolkit and has been my favorite way to preview designs on mobile devices since I discovered it. I even prefer it in Sketch to Sketch Mirror. Now that it’s working on the iPhone 6/6+, it’s a total no-brainer.
Crucial to my app design work flow!
I love this app. I've tested out a lot of other similar products but none of them were anywhere close to reliable. Excited to now have iPhone 6 support!
