If you’ve ever wanted to create a gorgeous and professional classroom website, there’s an exciting new app coming soon to a tablet near you.
Announced just moments ago at Adobe MAX (photo to the right), I was there to check out the new product first-hand. Here’s the skinny: Adobe is building apps that make the iPad and Android tablets more professional. One of those apps lets anyone quickly build a wireframed and solidly organized website.
They’ve made it so you can now wireframe, present, code, and develop an entire website right from the new app called Proto.
Adobe® Proto, a new Adobe Touch App, lets you create interactive wireframes and prototypes of websites and mobile apps on your tablet.
Communicate and share ideas with teams and clients using a touch-based interface.¹ Initially available for Android™.
The Proto app lets you easily swipe and drag to insert generic text, menus, picture spaces, etc.
Sketch website and mobile app wireframe layouts with simple finger strokes on your tablet’s touchscreen.
Insert interactive wireframe components from the component toolbox, including menus, tabs, accordions, and more, to quickly capture your design idea.
CSS grid system
Build your interactive wireframes using well-known CSS grid systems, or work freeform with a blank sheet.
Integration with Adobe Creative Cloud
Upload your files to Adobe Creative Cloud and then access them from your desktop for further work in Adobe Creative Suite® software, or to share with others.²
Render, view, and interact with your designs in popular web browsers. The latest webkit and jQuery support help maintain the integrity of your designs.
Best of all, it’s going to be $9.99. That’s a far cry from the usual prices for Adobe software. Click here to get notified when Proto is released.
It’s really quite neat and worth checking out if you’re interested in a better way to develop a website while on the go. When inspiration strikes, you’ll be ready, basically.
Adobe also announced a few other interesting apps (Photoshop Touch!) and I’ll cover those later on. For now, I personally found Adobe Proto to be one of the most interesting apps in recent memory.
