ProtoPie Cloud

ProtoPie Cloud is a web-based platform that allows you to store, manage, hand off, and share your ProtoPie prototypes. With customizable links, Interaction recordings, and the ability to let stakeholders experience prototypes on their own devices, ProtoPie Cloud offers a comprehensive solution for prototype collaboration and sharing.

Opening Cloud Pies in Studio

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

If you can’t find your cloud-stored prototype under Recent Pies, you can open it by clicking on the Open Pie button.

Uploading Prototypes

Follow these steps 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 a team space, select the right project and click on Save.

3. Once the upload is complete, the prototype's cloud link will display. Click on the link to preview your prototype on the cloud or select Copy to share the link with others. You can customize various sharing options on the prototype's page on ProtoPie 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 prototype on the cloud 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.

You can manage the information and settings of a prototype on the cloud; including changing its name and restoring older versions.

Testing Prototypes

You can easily share the link of your prototype with stakeholders. Depending on the prototype, they can preview it on web browsers or in the Player app.Learn more about sharing prototypes.

Desktop Browser

ProtoPie cloud links can be opened on any major desktop browsers (e.g. Google, Safari, Firefox). There are various display options you can choose from. Open View Options to customize the way your prototype display on web browsers.

Right-click the background of the prototype page to access additional options, including Full Screen mode and Change Scene.

Mobile Browser

You can conveniently open and test prototypes directly on mobile browsers. However, it's important to note that there are certain limitations when using prototypes in mobile browsers.

The input layer, sensor-related interactions, and voice prototyping features may not function as intended. To fully leverage these features, we highly recommend opening the prototype in ProtoPie Player.

ProtoPie Player

ProtoPie Player is a powerful companion app designed specifically for testing and running prototypes on iOS, iPadOS, and Android devices.

The ProtoPie Player ensures a seamless testing experience, free from the limitations that may arise when using mobile or web browsers.

To experience the full range of features and functionalities of your prototype, simply open ProtoPie Player and scan the QR code of the prototype stored in the cloud. Alternatively, you can enter the shareable link provided. Learn more about how to test prototypes in ProtoPie Player.
