Such a great tool for mocking up high fidelity prototypes for testing. Works great when connected via USB to test on device, but it looks like the app has lost support for saving/opening the prototypes when not connected to your computer on iOS 13.

Really hoping for an update that will fix the ability to launch prototypes untethered from your computer in the latest OS.

Tab bar doesn’t work well

Buggy is fine, I’ll find another way and fix it. Transition not smooth is fine, at least it still work and I’ll reduce the complexity of my prototype. But I just don’t understand why the tab bar works terribly. Had to keep tapping it until it works. That is not ok at all.
Tried it on a newer version of iPhone and it has a larger screen. When it’s not resized the tab bar works perfectly. Once it’s resized(the tab bar again is at the bottom of the screen), it doesn’t work anymore.

Please fix it. Even though it’s buggy and slow (both this preview app and desktop app), I still think it’s one of the best prototyping tool. I really like that I can control the logic and make it like a real app. That makes it a great usability testing tool. Hope the team can put more effort on it and make it better for everyone :)

Best prototyping tool

I have used this design, motion, interaction prototyping tool since it was released. I was also a avid user of Quartz Composer, the predecessor to Origami and retired by its maker Apple. This tool is hands down the best. It is versatile and powerful. There is very little you can’t make with it if you put in the time to learn it’s full feature offering. I have designed products at Apple, Airbnb and others with iconic UIs and elegant user experiences. Origami is the first tool I open when ever I start a design project. It has made my career and has been invaluable to my everyday work.
