Proto.io, the mobile app prototyping software used by more than 300,000 industry professionals and regular, non-technical people, today announced the launch of Proto.io 6. Along with a redesigned UI and numerous performance enhancements, the new Interaction Wizard makes it easier than ever to create dynamic, interactive prototypes. This enables users to quickly create beautiful, fully-featured prototypes – even if they don’t have any previous design or development experience.
Regardless of if you’re a product manager, engineer, student entrepreneur, startup founder or just somebody with a cool idea, creating a dynamic, fleshed out prototype is key to ensuring that your initial vision matches your final product. The ability for anyone without design or coding skills to create a realistic prototype easily is what separates Proto.io from the competition. With a stunning prototype, your idea can be completely fleshed out before anyone writes a line of code, which can conserve scarce resources like time and money.
“Our vision is to give the power of prototyping to everyone, without the need of specific skills or knowledge, in the fastest and most intuitive way possible,” says Alexis Piperides, co-founder and CEO of Proto.io. “Proto.io enables prototyping for all. Proto.io is for all people, all kinds of prototypes, from simple wireframes to advanced realistic and interactive animated prototypes and for all sorts of applications and devices.”
With Proto.io, every member of your team can share deep insight on your product without having to route their feedback through a designer or developer. That same power that allows your team to validate their ideas can also help teachers and professors in their classrooms.
“My students have to go from ideation to rough wireframes to complete presentable prototypes in 10 weeks,” says Michael Dain, Lecturer at Northwestern University. “Proto.io is indispensable to get them started, productive and deliver finished designs and high fidelity presentations. And this is often their first use of design tools. The environment is so quick and easy to use they often inspire me with novel transitions and flows that the tool makes easy.”
New features of Proto.io 6 include:
Redesigned Animation Timelines — Motion plays an important role in many of today’s most popular apps. Proto.io 6’s new State Transitions make it easy for those without design or coding experience to create beautiful animations.
Single-Click Sharing — With a single click, users can securely share prototypes with their team, clients, and testers.
Integration with Lookback.io — Proto.io can now record users’ screen activity and facial expressions while they interact with prototypes for dynamic feedback.
Easy-to-use Interaction Design Patterns — Users can drag-and-drop popular Interactive Design Patterns, like slide-in menus, onboarding screens, and scrollable content screens, right into their app.

Proto.io is the world’s most complete and versatile prototyping platform covering everything from wireframes to fully interactive, high fidelity prototypes that look and feel real. Proto.io enhances the design process by giving anyone the tools to create realistic, interactive, easily shareable prototypes that can be viewed and tested on the actual mobile device – all without the need for a line of code.
Paired with outstanding customer support, this makes Proto.io the prototyping platform of choice for many Fortune 100 companies and innovative startups, including Amazon, Microsoft, IBM, BBC, IDEO, Paypal and Disney. Proto.io is based in San Francisco with additional offices in Europe.
