Great post, Keynote is awesome for this.
Apple did a presentation on the topic at this year WWDC. They explained how they use keynote to prototype iOS applications. It is worth checking out if you want to dive deep into this. https://developer.apple.com/videos/wwdc/2014/look for “Prototyping: Fake It Till You Make It”
Thanks for sharing!
I did all the (admittedly pretty simple) animations in this presentation in Keynote:
Best thing is, its easily available tool and anyone can edit the content. I find powerpoint have slightly better control on transitions and timing though.
Keynote's such a rad tool and it's crazy how much it feels like its tailored for UI design.
And the fact that it's pretty much free.
Can never complain about free :)
Thanks for sharing Andrew I have experimented with both keynote, AE, Pixate for spec'ing animations/interactions and found that AE can be overkill. AE does have some great features to really fine tune animations, but keynote can definitely get the job done and is far easier to use.
Glad you liked it! I actually went down the Keynote path because Pixate required an extra device and AE's keyframes annoyed me. I did eventually give AE a whirl and it's definitely more powerful, but reality is you don't need it for a lot of the work most of us do.
I'm doing this as we speak. It's amazingly easy.
Awesome! Would love to see the results :)
