    I always kind of chuckle when I see UI gifs and heavily animated prototypes. I'm sitting here thinking - good luck finding a dev who can do that, and good luck making that turnkey enough that it'll be approved in a real-world business setting. There's a reason nearly all of your apps don't look like any of these prototypes you see nowadays.

    Lottie is a great tool and I'm starting to see it peppered in here and there, but mostly in loaders and onboarding views. I did notice this tool has a panel for exporting swift code, which is cool and I'm interested to check that out.

    I think what really needs to happen is Apple needs to buy Invision and then integrate this tool right into Xcode - then we'd have something to talk about.

      Apple buying invision would be awful.

      Because it is hard. When you build prototypes you don't need to deal with layout, touch interruption, loading data asynchronously, errors and so on. You design in the ideal world.

      And to be honest today toolkits are not really designed for UI that you would like to achieve. Mostly due performance issues because you animate static images, but once you start animating stuff that needs to be recalculated and redrawn each frame it starts to be pretty complicated (and possibly slow).
