ProtoPie Cloud

ProtoPie Cloud is a space where you store, manage, hand off and share your prototypes via the web. Customize and share links for your prototypes, create Interaction recordings, and let your stakeholders experience your prototypes on their own devices.

Opening Cloud Pies in Studio

Prototypes stored on your cloud can be opened directly from ProtoPie Studio’s Dashboard.

If you do not find your Pie in the Dashboard, you can access the prototypes stored in your cloud space by clicking on the “Open Pie” button.

Uploading Prototypes

To upload prototypes to the cloud from ProtoPie Studio.

  1. Click on the Cloud button in the upper right corner.
  • If you are using one of our paid plans or a special license (e.g. student license), you can choose between saving prototypes locally (“On My Computer”) or uploading them to the cloud (“Save”).
  • If you are using the Free plan, you can only save your prototypes on the cloud.

2. Choose the space, personal or team space, where the file should be saved. If you choose the team space, select the right project and click on Save.

3. Once the upload is complete, you'll see a link. Click on this link to preview your Pie in the Cloud or click on Copy to share it with others. Sharing options can be customized in the Cloud.

You can either upload your Pie as a new prototype or overwrite an existing one.

Uploading a Cloud Pie through the Cloud button automatically overwrites the version stored on the cloud. To overwrite another Pie URL from a Cloud Pie click on Save As under File and choose the prototype that needs to be overwritten.

To remove Pie files from your Recent Pies list, simply click on Remove from recent. To delete prototypes from your computer or from the cloud, click on Delete.

If you want to change the information or settings of a prototype, manage these in the cloud. Change the name and description of a prototype, alter the access settings of a prototype, and find previously uploaded versions.

Learn more about managing prototypes.

Testing Prototypes

Share the link of a prototype with stakeholders. Depending on the prototype, they can try it in the desktop browser, mobile browser, or in ProtoPie Player.

 about sharing prototypes.

Desktop Browser

Prototype URLs can be opened on any major desktop browser (e.g. Google, Safari, Firefox). There are various display options below the prototype. Adjust the playback speed, enable focus or full-screen mode, change the cursor, or activate hotspot hints.

Open View Options to customize the way your prototype is displayed on the cloud.

Right-click the background of the prototype page to access additional options.

Mobile Browser

It's possible to open prototypes in the mobile browser. Run and test prototypes on real smart devices.

There are some limitations with mobile browsers. The input layer, sensor-related interactions, and voice prototyping features don't work (properly). We recommend opening the prototype in ProtoPie Player to fully experience these.

ProtoPie Player

ProtoPie Player is a companion app to run and test prototypes on iOS, iPadOS, and Android devices.

ProtoPie Player enables you to test prototypes fully, without the limitations you may experience on mobile or web browsers.

To open a prototype in ProtoPie Player, scan the QR code of a prototype in the cloud or use the shareable link directly. Learn more about ProtoPie Player.
