ProtoPie Cloud

ProtoPie Cloud is a web-based platform that allows you to store, manage, handoff, 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 testing and sharing.

Opening Cloud Pies in ProtoPie 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 the Open Pie button.

You can directly open a Pie in ProtoPie Studio from the Pie Cloud page by clicking on the Pie name and choosing "Open in Studio."

Uploading Prototypes

Follow these steps to upload prototypes to the cloud from ProtoPie Studio:

  1. Click the Cloud button in the upper right corner.
  • If you are on the Pro or Enterprise plan, you can choose between saving prototypes locally (“On My Computer”) or uploading them to the cloud (“Save”).
  • If you are on the Free or Basic plan, you can save your prototypes only on the cloud.

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

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

You can 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, click Remove from recent. To delete prototypes from your computer or the cloud, click Delete.

[object Object]

You can manage the information and settings of a prototype on the cloud, including renaming it 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 the Player app. Learn more about sharing prototypes.

Testing Prototypes on Desktop Browsers

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

Right-click the background of the prototype page to access additional options, such as Full Screen, ProtoPie UI, and so on.

Testing Prototypes on Mobile Browsers

You can conveniently open and test prototypes directly on mobile browsers. However, it's important to note 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. We recommend opening the prototype in ProtoPie Player to use these features fully.

Testing Prototypes with ProtoPie Player

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

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, 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 testing prototypes in ProtoPie Player.
