Straightforward application designed to make it as easy as possible for developers to build interaction and animation prototypes
Framer Studio is a straightforward and powerful macOS development tool that helps developers design interaction prototypes and high fidelity animation prototypes using a user friendly interface.
Framer Studio is as stylish as it is efficient, a thing that easily becomes evident once you start the application. Framer Studio’s main window features a code editing panel on the left side, a preview panel on the right side, and a comprehensive toolbar on the upper side of its window.

Besides the fact that Framer Studio comes with full drag and drop support, so you can drag any picture from your Mac’s desktop onto its viewer window, the application can also help you import files from Photoshop, Sketch or After Effects, for an easier way to transform them into interactive interaction and animation prototypes.
The fact that Framer Studio is a well-developed application with a user friendly interface becomes evident when you take into consideration the fact that it helps you boost your productivity with the help of snippets – small reusable code-blocks.
Features a plethora of useful features that will speed up your prototype building workflow
Furthermore, Framer Studio also features a Web Inspector that helps you discover, inspect, and correct errors in your code and an auto-complete function that makes it easy for you to speed up the process of adding functions, properties, and variables.
Almost all the changes done to your prototype can be handled in a 3D space with the help of its inbuilt full screen mode, and by working with different orientations and pixel densities for a wide array of devices, namely Watch, Nexus 5, iPad Mini, and iPad Air, as well as iPhone 5c, 5S, and 6.
Easy to handle and smooth-running animation and interaction prototype development application
What is more, with the help of its built-in spring based physics engines, you can give your animations a more natural feeling, and its default filters let you control interface aspects such as blur, brightness, contrast, hue, invert, and saturation.
Taking all things into consideration, Framer Studio is a stylish looking and streamlined macOS application that will be an asset to any developer who wants to build mobile interactions and animation prototypes using a Mac.
