Mobile companion app

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I would like to ask if something is on the roadmap or if there are any information regarding it.

 

What I mean by companion app is something like Skala View or Adobe Experience Design/Preview CC which are apps that mirror your file/artboard to a mobile device so you can have a live view of your work.

This is especially usefull for interface designers as they have to constantly check how the design feels on the target device.

 

Is there a good workaround for now if my work enviroment consists of a Windows PC and an Android smartphone?

 

 

Thanks and keep up the awesome work!

Daniel

Hey, thanks for the welcome!

​Too bad there are no concrete plans for a Android version. Maybe if enough people support this idea in this thread we can make something happen! There are interface designer on Windows and Android out there :D

Hi Daniel,

Welcome to Affinity Forums :)

There will be an iOS Mirror app soon but there's isn't much details about it yet. MattP (one of the developers) shared a few details here in this thread (page 4).

I'm not aware of a similar app for Android devices at this point.

Hey MEB , Is there any detail about the iOS mirror APP?As a windows + iOS user, I can not design mobile UI without live preview .Because live preview is necessary.

Hi  MEB, any updates on this feature? It is announced for quite a long time now, so it would be great to get a potential timeline.

While it's great there there are some advanced features for UI design in Affinity Designer, it's sad that mobile device preview, an indispensable feature is still missing.
