Flinto for Mac vs Principle: A Review of Two New App Prototyping Tools

When it comes to creating advanced interactive app prototypes, there’s been no shortage of options for the design community. In the past, we tried Framer.js, Pixate, and Origami, just to name a few. As a member of the design team at Savvy Apps, we found these kinds of tools overly limiting and too complex to use. Some of them even rely on actual code, which for some designers, is a scary thought. For our more basic prototypes, we’ve been happy customers of Flinto since early 2014. Like some other options, Flinto—until recently—was entirely web-based which severely limited the kinds of interactions we could design. That’s where Flinto for Mac and Principle enter the picture.

The Ultimate Sketch iOS App Icon Template

While there are a number of iOS app icon templates for Photoshop on the web, including our own, I've yet to find a version for Sketch that completely meets my needs. Since I primarily work with Sketch at this point, I created a Sketch iOS app icon template for myself that we’re now ready to share with other Sketch designers. It takes advantage of Sketch's vectorized model and mobile-friendly tools to set it apart from Photoshop-based templates. This template also goes above other Sketch templates by providing time-saving Shared Styles as well as all the sizes you need for your app.

By updating your app for iOS 9, Android 6.0, and other OS releases, you're improving your chances of being featured, as well as retaining valuable customers, attracting new users, and flexing your own developer skills to take advantage of new technologies. Read on to learn more about how updating your app to support new OS updates by launch day itself is worth the effort.
