Create expressive interfaces and interactive content without writing code. Designers can define behaviors and control sophisticated interactions with simple menu-based commands without requiring any development or coding skills.
Turn static Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, and Fireworks artwork into interactive components and add interactions that respond to user input. Interfaces and interactive content can appear with a branded look and feel, as the design requires.
Graphically edit and create animated transitions between pages or states of components. Designers can extend their creativity by creating engaging experiences with objects that move and smoothly fade in and out.
Define and preview the look and behavior of dynamic data quickly and easily. Similar to using placeholder text or images, you can use mock data without having to actually connect to a back-end system.
Integrate video, sound effects, and dynamic media as easily as working with static artwork, and then add interactions to control their playback. Even import SWF files that you can play from a specific frame.
