Crank Software Furthers UI Development with Optimized Capabilities in Storyboard Suite

Storyboard Suite 3.2 Provides Better Workflows and Increased Usability Features for Creating Seamless UIs Faster

Ottawa, On. – Nov. 20, 2013 – Crank Software, an innovator in embedded user interface (UI) solutions, announced today Storyboard Suite 3.2, a new version of its turnkey UI development software. Storyboard Suite 3.2 features new usability improvements and optimized workflows to help development teams create better UIs and get products to market faster.

UI engineering and design teams no longer have to work in a back-and-forth process that results in a rigid UI sacrificing either performance or design. With Storyboard Suite, teams now can save time and costs by having designers and engineers work side-by-side in an integrated, collaborative process to ultimately create a better UI. Storyboard Suite provides the ability to get from concept to working prototype in minutes rather than months with a tool that works across the enterprise.

“The Storyboard Suite platform is consistently helping companies create the UIs they want – UIs that set their product apart and draw customers back to their brand, time and again,” said Brian Edmond, Crank Software president. “With Storyboard Suite 3.2, we’re continuing to improve on the best solution for UI development engineers and designers create great content, develop and refine ideas, and do it in less time.”

Storyboard Suite 3.2 brings increased functionality to Storyboard users, continuing to make it easy for teams to develop, prototype, and refine a UI until it’s perfect for a customer – both in function and in design. New features and improvements include:

  • Photoshop Re-Import: Make revisions to Photoshop files and easily re-import them into Storyboard Suite. In addition, use Storyboard to identify changes in Photoshop files, and see live updates of an application by selecting various Photoshop elements.
  • Scrolling List Table Enhancements: Create vertical or horizontal table scrolling without writing code.
  • Animation Enhancements: Iterate quickly with new animation timeline features, scale and reverse animation, to get the perfect user experience for your UI application.
  • 3D Edit Mode: Achieve 3D element positioning using just mouse and key combinations.

In addition, users can benefit from simpler tools for off -screen content editing making it easier to position controls for animation during runtime, reference anchor points for more precise alignment, and control property functions for inline math. And, Lua can now be used to create animations and directly set table attributes.
