Infragistics Launches Newest Version of UI Prototyping Tool Indigo Studio
Version 2.0 Gives Users Added Features for Enhanced Mobile Experiences
Cranbury, New Jersey – September 16, 2013 – Infragistics, a worldwide leader in tools for building stunning applications, today released the newest version of Indigo Studio, an interaction design tool that incorporates rapid, interactive user interface (UI) wireframing and prototyping with user-centered storyboarding. Updated with a host of new features targeted at making designing mobile experiences a breeze, Indigo Studio allows designers, developers, and business users alike to explore functional, animated UI prototypes while maintaining a strong focus on user experience, without requiring a single line of code.
The latest iteration of Indigo Studio makes it easier for users to choose different target devices and quickly explore and test designs for their web, desktop, and mobile UIs. Users now have more flexibility to design for mobile experiences, with a platform selector, new touch gestures, built-in screen-to-screen transitions, and the ability to run prototypes on any device that supports HTML5 – including iOS, Android, and Windows devices. Additionally, a full iOS platform pack lets users accelerate their iOS prototype designs with a wide array of easily configurable native controls. Indigo Studio V2 also adds to its design documentation capabilities through its new automated PDF exporting.
“Creating an unforgettable user experience is a reflection of who we are as a company, and with Indigo Studio, we are giving app creators the chance to bring their ideas to life, whether they are seasoned coders and designers, or novice project managers,” said Dean Guida, CEO of Infragistics. “Indigo Studio V2 makes the process of creating a UI faster and easier, giving the designer or developer an opportunity to present their concepts for early stakeholder and user-feedback, facilitating a lean UX process and reducing the risk of re-work once the app is in development. No matter what platform they’re creating for, we want our users to have all the tools needed to design rich and interactive UIs they know will work and, in turn, deliver exceptional user experiences.”
Indigo Studio V2 builds upon the V1 release, which quickly won accolades from the design, interaction design, and development communities for being an easy-to-use, empowering, and fully interactive prototyping tool that allows the user to maintain a focus on user experience at every step. In addition to the new features, Indigo Studio allows users to design storyboards with real-world usage context, integrate their prototypes within their storyboards, and annotate, share, and document their designs.
