Form – Instant Native Prototypes
Many design tools today are static. Interaction and animation remains trapped in the mind of the designer. There is no easy way to iterate on these ideas, or to communicate them to others. Form is an attempt to solve this problem. The tool lets you build custom prototypes directly on the device. Form prototypes are native. They have access to the device’s camera and other sensors. Prototypes built with Form are as powerful as their coded counterparts. Forms apps run directly on the device. You can run prototypes on multiple devices all in real-time. Compositions update instantly as you work, without restarting. Form is powered by Relative interface — a high performance graphics framework for iOS. It aims to bring the power of OpenGL to iOS apps with a simple, familiar and powerful API. Form is not a new way to do the old, it’s a new way to do the new. It’s as expressive as code, without the same complexity. As you start to experiment and play with Form, it will change the way you think about interaction design.
