Appseed - creating prototypes from sketches
For a site called Appspy, we don't cover a lot of non-game apps, and there's a reason for that. Most apps are variations on productivity software that while useful, is more a case of preference, and not worth mentioning when new programs appear. We also tend not to cover Kickstarter campaigns, because there's a good chance that what we cover won't end up being funded, so creating hype can seem disingenuous.
Every now and then though, we rethink these policies when we receive certain submissions, and Appseed is interesting enough to inform our readers about. It's an app that can turn a drawn concept into an actual working prototype. Watch the video below to understand.
Seeing how drawing out menus is the best way to test out ideas, and making sure the screen isn't cluttered, and yet all needed information available, a program that can take such drawings and turn them into testable prototypes is phenomenal, and it's just one step closer to lowering the entry bar for those who wish to make something on the iOS but don't necessarily have the knowledge required to go about it.
We wish Appseed luck in its Kickstarter campaign.
