Portland, OR (PRWEB) October 29, 2013
Site9, Inc. today announced the release of ProtoShare for Drive, a new mockup tool that helps anyone with a creative design idea to quickly and easily create and share interactive mockups – with no coding skills required. ProtoShare for Drive provides Google Drive users with a powerful subset of tools available in ProtoShare, the leading interactive wireframing and prototyping tool used by professionals worldwide for the design of websites and mobile applications.
ProtoShare for Drive is designed for people who do not have a design background, but who have creative ideas they want to share – such as a new idea for a mobile app or a feature they would like to add to their website. For those who don’t have the skills to write their own software code, conveying an interactive design idea effectively can be a challenge. ProtoShare for Drive enables users with Google Drive to experiment with ideas by putting them into mockups that have clickable functionality. Mockups make it easier to start the conversation – whether it’s with a potential investor or with a designer or developer – to show, versus tell, how the design idea could work.
With a palette of interactive design components and access to hundreds of drag-and-drop stencils and widgets, ProtoShare for Drive makes it easy to create compelling and powerful interactive mockups. The files can be saved as HTML in Google Drive to be shared online or via email and can be viewed by anyone with a modern web browser. Teams using ProtoShare for Drive can work collaboratively in real-time with instantaneous updates and versioning history to help keep projects on track.
“Whether you are in the earliest stages of brainstorming or you are deep into the planning of a new website or mobile app, you need to be able to capture your ideas quickly and convey them effectively,” said Andrew Mottaz, founder and CTO of Site9. “Many great ideas are created on cocktail napkins, only to be later lost or forgotten. With ProtoShare for Drive, you can immediately put your ideas into play in a digital environment. It allows you to experiment with new designs, explore fresh approaches for your website or invent your own mobile app, and then convey those creative design ideas with remarkable fidelity in an interactive environment – before you invest time and budget into the full-on design and development process.”
Mockups can be created for almost any digital idea. Some examples of how ProtoShare for Drive might be used include:
ProtoShare for Drive lets you leverage all of Google Drive’s great collaboration features. You can allow other users with ProtoShare for Drive to view or edit mockups, and Drive’s versioning features track and store your change history. Because ProtoShare mockups are stored as HTML files, even users without ProtoShare for Drive can download mockups and view and interact with them in any web browser. For users who aren’t on Google Drive, mockups files can be emailed or hosted on any web server.
Users can try ProtoShare for Drive free for 30 days. Unlimited use of ProtoShare for Drive costs just $49 a year. As with all ProtoShare products, top-notch customer support is included. Users can cancel at any time. For more information, visit ProtoShare for Drive on the Chrome Web Store.
