Proto.io overview

What is Proto.io?

Proto.io is a powerful web application for creating fully interactive, high-fidelity mobile application prototypes.

 It allows designers to create mobile app screens, apply screen transitions and define touch events for each design element on the screen. This creates a high quality prototype, which will work, and feel like a real app. Additional device events such as screen orientation are also supported. Prototypes can be viewed and experienced interactively within the browser but more importantly can be launched in the actual mobile device i.e. iPhone, iPad or equivalent, creating a breath-taking user experience.



The Proto.io prototype editor offers an intuitive drag-and-drop user interface that is familiar to most people that use traditional graphic software. The editor is fully compatible with the latest versions of Chrome, Safari and Firefox. Proto.io comes with a great number of design elements and UI components for prototyping such as toolbars, tab bars, navigation bars, menus, forms, text, photos and much more. Designed to be a prototype tool for all mobile platforms, Proto.io currently offers UI elements for iPhone, iPad and Android. A comments feature is also included to get instant and specific feedback. Last but not least, designers can print their prototypes and present their work in the traditional way.

Pros
You can convert your thoughts into an actual experience. It really helps to be able to visualize how the final product would look like and at the same time, interact with the interface.

Cons
It is a bit expensive to work with, but I have felt that the features are worth the price if you can afford it.

Extraordinary prototyping apparatus that is a stage above envision yet not all that thick you need a degree to utilize it. On the off chance that you need to make intriguing micro-interactions with regards to your models, Proto.io is the least demanding and most attractive approach to accomplish it.

Pros
Proto.io is a ground-breaking web application for making completely intelligent, high-loyalty portable application models. It enables fashioners to make versatile application screens, apply for screen advances and characterize contact occasions for each plan component on the screen. This makes an astounding model, which will work, and feel like a genuine application. Extra gadget occasions, for example, screen introduction are likewise bolstered. Models can be seen and experienced intelligently inside the program however more imperatively can be propelled in the real cell phone, for example, iPhone, iPad or proportionate, making a stunning client experience. 1. Level Scroll: One of the striking highlights of Proto-io is the even looking over an element which isn't accessible in a large portion of the applications in the market. It consolidates this element easily. 2. Similarity: Proto-io is good with programming like Sketch, the vector illustrations proofreader. Along these lines, the model can be utilized on Sketch too. UI/UX originators initially have memberships to Sketch and accordingly can chip away at the two stages for application improvement. 3. Client Testing: Proto-io model is perfect with usertesting.com. This enables the planner to get model surveys easily. 4. More highlights: While some applications spend significant time in giving a specific capacity, proto-io is the handyman, There are numerous approaches to assemble these intuitive models. 5. Nume

Cons
1. Interface: It sets aside some effort to become acclimated to. Any planner may require some assistance before utilizing proto-io highlights to its fullest. In any case, looking over highlights more than remunerate the issue. The interface is very troublesome for learners. 2. Powers to utilize itself: Proto-io is made so that it debilitates the client to utilize some other applications. Any originator has a membership for Sketch and might want to deal with it flawlessly. 3. Movable measurements: Any model doesn't have movable measurements. An application intended for the iPhone won't take a shot at some other Android telephones. The application must be redeveloped to be utilized on another arrangement of measurements. 4. Sets aside an effort to stack for different applications like on usertesting.com In general: Best Customer Service, When I attempted to build up an application, my screen was slacking a bit. Be that as it may, the client administration got past it. They were useful and brief. Proto-io is a basic and intelligent stage. Great client administration more than makes up for the cons.

Overall experience with proto.io was really appealing because I was able to design a mobile application as intended with the help of proto.io

Pros
One of the best thing I like about this application is that it is beginner friendly .I recently got a assessment to design a user interface of a mobile application.I tried couple of ui design tool to accomplish the assessment but found them really complex to use later I switch to proto.io and complete my task with in a week using proto.io . Ready made template , useful icon and wonderful design environment made my project really promising.

Cons
I found proto.io as a complete package but I still want the developer team to add more advanced ready made template so that beginner user can get advance design idea from them.

wish I could have never heard of it...

Pros
nothing I like about it - it seemed like a good working tool at first - but not...

Cons
DO NOT USE proto.io !!! еfirst of all - they have so many bugs... my developer and I had to contact customer service many times just to find out there are bugs and we need to change a few things... and it's just not worth it overall. There is a better services out there - just do your search. Also there is no way of exporting your project. I had a slight delay with going forward with my project and needed to pause my subscription - there is a "parking fee" every month. I have been a loyal customer for over a year and paid a lot of money over this period, then I parked it for a few months and still paid monthly "parking" fees... but when I realized I need to put the project on hold - until further notice proto.io customer service was not helpful at all - they said there is no way to back up the project and save it. we live in 21 century - the century of IT - task like this is so simple - they just want you to continue paying them.... If I cancel my subscription - my project will be deleted forever... the only way to keep it is to continue paying ... scumbags! think twice before start using them.

Review Source: Capterra

Overall, proto.io has been a fantastic tool for designing prototypes. It is simple and efficient to use and provides everything you would need to design great prototypes.

Pros
As someone who occasionally has to design prototypes for UI/UX-based college projects, proto.io has been a breeze to use. It was in fact recommended by our instructor as well and is a great tool to design prototypes seamlessly and efficiently. It provides all the tools you would need to populate artboards and provides a wide array of tools for prototyping interactions as well.

Cons
While proto.io is a great tool, it could perhaps use a free version (with limited functions).
