Pixate is the world's first mobile interaction design service that produces native mobile app prototypes on iOS and Android without coding. We just launched today and open to feedback.  Ask me anything. :)

@paulcolton I used it for a couple of days and really liked it. I have a couple of suggestions though: - Keyboard shortcuts like renaming layers and reordering layers - Copy/paste actions into other elements. Or drag an action from the detail view to another element to copy it. - The media upload progress bar is really hard to spot. Feels like it's part of the UI already. Doesn't look like it moves at all on a non-retina screen ;) - It would be great to have a native preview on the desktop of just having an iOS app. I need different software to be able to record a video and send it to someone else. Other than that, great work! I like the active development and the great video resources.

@Jonnotie These are all on our roadmap, thanks! One cool feature we have running internally (and hope to release soon) is the ability to record your prototype right on device and share the video!

@paulcolton This is amazing, thank you. I had a play earlier and was able to make one interaction that felt really natural within 20 minutes. I've spent more than two times more than that in the past trying to demonstrate the same things with my limited After Effect skills, and those aren't even interactive! One thing beyond the things @jonnotie mentioned — I'd love to see is a zoom that doesn't zoom the whole UI?? Anyhow, just wanted to congratulate you and say thanks. I dare say I'll be a full paying customer if I get enough time to experiment/demonstrate the benefits to the rest of the team in the next month ;)

Pixate is without a doubt one of the best prototyping tools I've used. It's not without it quirks but it's so strong for a first pass. Props to @paulcolton and team.

Finally a user-centered tool to create sophisticated animations and interactions (ie. Quartz, Framer.js). I haven't tried it yet but this blog post makes it sound like a very powerful tool. This guy recreates the interactions of well designed mobile apps like Google Now, Foursquare, Spotify and Twitter using Pixate: http://www.comestsavatino.com/bl... I would use it for the last part of my design workflow: Marvel iOS (https://marvelapp.com/iphone) → Sketch → Marvel → Pixate. Would love to see how you guys integrate Pixate in your workflow. Anyway, congrats @paulcolton.
