David Hogue shows how design agency Fluid uses Adobe Proto for iPad:
Very cool! Finally. I will definitely buy it.
Unfortunately, it does not really work for collaboration since it would require every member to have an iPad or a compatible android tablet. To be truly collaborative, it needs to run on Mac/PC as well. This is where HTML5 kind of shine, since you can decouple the application production from the distribution.
Anyway, this is a great individual productivity tool which can be used to share the concept with others to get early feedback.
I really like the innovation that went into the gestures. Great work Adobe…. looking forward to the PC/Mac app as well.
You’re really only talking about *remote* collaboration though. A few people sitting next to each other could very easily pass an iPad (or some other tablet) back and forth and work collaboratively in person, much like pair programming (a collaborative development method where only one person is actually typing code, but both people are talking through the problems to be solved).
Combine the above idea with AirPlay mirroring and it would be even easier for others to see what you’re doing.
I’m actually really looking forward to using this on Google Nexus 7 Android Tablet. As well as possible iPad mini later this year.
I think that the 7inch tablet model is the future (smaller devices w/ large screens in general) so I’d rather get both than just the 10 inch iPad.
That said the Adobe Touch Apps look great. Looking forward to working with them.
