Proto.io 4 makes prototyping faster and better than ever!

April 23, 2013

Proto.io 4

We are very excited here at Proto.io to announce our latest major release Proto.io 4! We consider Proto.io 4 a breakthrough, not because of its abundance of new features but for the new UI that will allow users to prototype faster and better than ever. Revamping the editor UI to focus on usability and user experience was a long standing goal for us, one we have been working on for some time now. We realize that we have ‘sacrificed’ the priority of features that could precede this release. However, with the totally revamped user interface of Proto.io 4 we will be able to deliver new features and functionality faster than ever, and that’s what we are most excited about! In other words, you should expect many amazing things to happen really soon!

For now, here is a list of some of the things introduced in Proto.io 4:

Editor

  • Completely revamped editor interface
  • Detached properties panel
  • Intuitive, grouped properties for all components
  • Select & edit individual dynamic properties
  • Inline editing for text properties
  • Live update for color properties
  • RGBA support for colors
  • Customizable project color palette
  • Reworked Size & Positioning panel
  • Revamped Item Browser with sortable dynamic properties and inline-editable item captions
  • Contextual menus
  • Key commands for incrementing/decrementing numeric properties
  • Convert item/group of items to container
  • Container breadcrumbs
  • Fit to screen zoom
  • Improved history (Undo/redo)

Interactions

  • Copy/Paste interactions
  • Quick interactions
  • Drag to reorder callbacks

Player

  • Introducing new animation engine to speed up animations by 5x
