Introducing Template Libraries

Since the release of our mobile edition, lots of you have asked about template libraries for different operating systems. We listened to your feedback and we are happy to announce that we have launched not one, but five new template libraries.

These libraries include Android, iOS, Windows, as well as Facebook and E-Commerce. These are in PNG format, which you can use in your Pidoco prototypes.

You can download the zip PNG files on our support page.

Once you have downloaded your zip file, you can upload the entire zip folder in “My images”. You can find this above the icon section in the stencil palette. Then click “Add Custom Images” and a dialogue will open where you can upload your zip file from the desktop.

Your image templates will then be “My Images” in the stencil palette. You can simply drag and drop these into your page and resize as you wish. If you would like more information on how to use images in Pidoco, check out our tutorial video.

When you have finished building your prototype you can simulate it on the Android or iOS app, or in your browser.

We also have web template libraries, including Facebook templates and banner advertising.

If you have your own template files you can upload and use these in your Pidoco prototypes. We will be adding to our template libraries, so please let us know if there are any templates you would like us to create for you.

After a long journey: our iPhone app is available

It has been three months ago that we added the pidoco Mobile Edition for you to create specific iOS prototypes, which you can run directly on your iPhone or iPad using our new apps. Since then we were discussing with Apple to get our iPhone app into the store. Today, we’re happy to announce that the app finally is available in the App Store!

When you search for it you may notice that we have a Pidoco app that is for 99 cents and a Pidoco HD app that is for free. You may ask, why you have to pay for the app? Unfortunately, Apple’s App Store policies prevent our app from being free because pidoco° itself is a paid service. So, for your benefit, we chose the minimum possible price. With the iPad version of our app we were just lucky to get it approved before we made our pricing public, therefore it is still for free. But once we have to add a new version, this is likely to be changed.

If it were for us to decide you would get the app for free. However, we preferred having the app in the store instead of having no app at all. Our hope is that you will understand that to date it was not possible to get a free pidoco app into the store. Having now achieved that the app is in the store we will continue to think about a solution that both satisfies Apple to make some money with our app and you to get the app for free. After the last three months, I’m not yet convinced that this solution will be possible in the short term, but we’ll work on it.
