Ah cheers Dominik! Was going to do a Show DN as we've finally updated the iPhone app to include full prototyping capabilities (the previous version was just a photo uploader)
We've also added:
PSD Importing - import PSDs on Dropbox into your prototype right on your iPhone
iPad support - create iPad prototypes as well as iPhone 4 and 5
Dropbox and Marvel sync - everything is synced with your web account for easy access
Getting this version out was a nightmare, the day we released it we found out that it broke for any existing users.
We had to get Apple to expedite our fix (6 hour approval, didn't even know that existed!) but by then we had a bunch of bad reviews.
So learned a lot and we've now got a bit more process before we do App Store releases.
I love that you can show your prototypes in the browser for portfolio pieces. Especially when you are trying to show a client how something should work.
Ah, so that's why mine might have been broken. Let me try again :-)
Sorry for the early posting and congratulations on the release!
No no don't apologise, thanks for posting!
App looks lovely, are there plans to bring a version to Android? (Would love to use this on my Moto X.)
Yep 100%, I've got my co-founder Jon (iOS dev) reading Android tutorials :)
In the meantime, a kinda halfway solution is to use the official Android Dropbox app to upload your sketches into the Marvel web app and then prototype them up
Marvel has worked great so far at SmartRecruiters and it's difficult to argue with the price (free). Also, Murat at Marvel has been very responsive to user and feature feedback so I'm excited to see what the future will bring.
beautiful. looks like a compelling alternative to Invision for rapid design prototyping. Google Drive support will be a huge win, looking forward to that.
Thanks Jim, hopefully we'll have that sorted out pretty soon as it's becoming such a frequent request alongside .sketch support. If there's anything else you'd like to see gimme a shout
Marvel may have more front-end polish and features, but for rapid prototyping, Flinto is still the champion here. IMO, until someone creates a prototyping tool with a reliable way to capture swipes, or some how get Quartz Composed/Origami on the phone, there isn't market demand for another frame by frame tool.
I dunno Jack, the internet is a big place, there's a market for all sorts of tools. It's not just designers using Marvel remember
Sure, there are a lot of apps doing paper prototyping as well — Pop (Woomoo) comes to mind. I'll give you props on your pricing: it's half of Flinto!
This app looks like a great alternative to POP! However, the name of this app makes it extremely difficult to search for it ;)
Haha yeah! Thanks for swiping 30 other apps to get to ours!
Great work! It'd be cool to see Marvel sketches on Marvel.
Started using this yesterday and I already prefer it over Flinto. It's richer (and cheaper - that sounds ironic). I can't wait until you guys add gesture based navigating. That'd be brilliant.
Thanks for trying it out! Gestures is really close, almost went out last week but found some Android bugs that were a show stopper, not long left though :)
Really excited to give this a shot. Will be incredible when Sketch is supported too!
Also want to praise the great work Marvel guys are doing, I started to use the app about a month ago, and can't believe how fast i can get the prototypes put together, also clients are extremely happy with preview on their phones with icon and everything.
Thanks Petr! <3
I want a more visual way of seeing how the screens tie together, where I can see thumbs of all of my screens and see which ones connect where quickly. FluidUI does this and I find it extremely helpful, despite their other shortcomings.
On it :)
Curious when you might have some team aspects to creating, building, and managing prototypes. This is one major feature that's keeping us back from considering Marvel vs Invision.
This is currently in the works.
It's going to be a major release for us so we want to make sure it's really simple and robust.
Personally it's been the biggest challenge of Marvel so far design wise. Took a long time staring at the screen to figure the flow out.
Look forward to showing you :)
Great to hear. Now knowing this and revisiting the product, I signed up for early adopter. Team and Android and you'll have our account in no time. Thanks.
That's amazing, welcome to Pro :D
