How to Make it Work
For you noobs out there, log in to your account on a computer and log in to your app. On your computer, open up a project. If you haven’t started one yet, click on “Back to Files” and you should see three Figma drafts already in your folder. Open one of those projects.
Once opened, look to the left column. You will see a list of words with a # sign next to it. Those are the frames. Click on one and wait 2-3 seconds, sometimes longer because there is a lot of lag. The app will display the frame on your mobile device.
Connects better than most
I’ve used a lot of these types of apps over the years. One issue they all seem to have is connecting quickly and staying connected; Sketch mirror is particularly bad in this regard.
Somehow, Figma mirror doesn’t seem to have this problem. It connects effortlessly, stays connected without hiccups, and reflects updates in near-real time. I haven’t tried to use it with any prototypes, so I can’t comment on that part.
My only complaint is that for some reason, the developers decided to make “tap” actions move from artboard to artboard, rather than swipes. It’s super accident prone and infuriating, and I accidentally invoke it constantly while simply scrolling.
Would be great if it could open links
The app works so much better than viewing prototypes in a mobile browser, but it’s unfortunately not usable for remote user testing because you need to drive it from Figma on a desktop.
If it could open public prototype links, it would be much better for remote user testing native app designs, which look awful in Safari.
Two stars because it’s also quite buggy and often loses track of what you’re trying to look at, requiring a force quit/restart, but at least it’s not worse than Sketch Mirror.
No Details Provided
The developer will be required to provide privacy details when they submit their next app update.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
