Jolt Awards: The Best Programming Utilities, July 29, 2013 The top utilities that solve annoying development problems.
Finalist: Indigo Studio
I first saw Indigo Studio an excellent, storyboard and wireframe designer in action a few months when evaluating Infragistics' comprehensive NetAdvantage Ultimate package. Since then, Indigo Studio has gained considerable momentum in the user interface design tool sector. Running on both Mac OS X and Windows, Indigo Studio offers designers and developers a fast, painless way to draw out storyboards and hook these up to screen mockups with working UI elements. In addition, it's currently available at no cost.
It comes prepopulated with various usage scenarios that can be dropped into a storyboard and edited to fit the current application. The wireframing can be done easily from there in Indigo, which provides easy-to-use tools to get from concept to to prototype quickly. The resulting prototypes can be run on any mobile device that supports HTML5. To get a quick overview of how this all works, the vendor, Infragistics, provides a quick walk-through video.
