OmniGraffle based Prototype App - An UX Designers Dream Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes

I am an UX Designer and much of my work gets done in OmniGraffle. What I really would love to see is an app, that would extend Graffles wireframes into animated and interacitve prototypes. I am thinking of something like Axure with all the polish and ease-of-use the Mac OS X Platform and Omni software products can deliver.

An app like this could/should include killer features like:
  • define a site structure / navigational structure
  • assign wireframes to site structure elements
  • define clickpaths (for demo / presentation)
  • pattern library
  • user defined modules
  • item catalog / inventory export to different file formats (spreadsheet, word processing)
  • make objects clickable
  • option to define transistions / animations of elements

If you are an Interaction or UX Designer or a Usability Professional and would like to see an app like this or if you have some more ideas about an app like this, please add your name and a comment to this thread.

I certainly support this idea -- I do use OmniGraffle for prototyping and use interactive PDFs as the format. They are not ideal, but do work and allow me to stay in OmniGraffle.

You're right - this would be a dream :)

I'd love to see this too, with all the bells and whistles, but I'd be happy to start with an HTML exportable version of the clickable presentation mode that already exists in OG without it being an image map :-(

Certainly an inspiring idea.

Some more of thoughts on the IxDA mailing list archive.

I would buy it, pre-release (!).

I agree!

I would love to see some of the functionality you describe into an actual Omnigraffle release. (+ 3 other OG users in my company)
