Bridge

Besides interactions on a single device, ProtoPie makes it possible to easily prototype interactions that involve multiple devices communicating with each other. Examples that you could prototype are chatting or transferring money.

Send responses and Receive triggers make interactions among devices possible. A response is activated when a device with the Receive trigger accepts a message sent from a different device using a Send response. The message received on one device should match the one sent from another device.

Send Responses

Channel

Select ProtoPie Studio as a channel to allow interactions among devices. Android Broadcasting allows prototypes on Android devices to communicate with external hardware. The Component channel allows interactions to take place outside the component.

Message

A message is a string that is transmitted. When the message in the Receive trigger on one device matches the message in the Send response, interactions among devices can take place.

Assign to Variable

It is possible to send a value together with a message. This value would have to be assigned to a variable upon receiving.
