Offline mobile prototypes

Many of you test your mobile products in the field—and that can mean spotty connectivity. Which is why we’re happy to announce that InVision mobile prototypes now work offline, too!Twitter LogoJust load your prototype on any mobile device and you should be good to go, no matter how many bars you do—or don’t—have.

Just make sure you’ve given your prototype time to load before you hop offline.

Let us know how you like it!

Good to know: Projects over 50MB may take some time to cache in the background, so be sure to give your bigger projects time to load before going offline. If you know that you won’t have connection, run through it once in Airplane mode for good measure.
