Atomic vs Proto.io: What are the differences?
Developers describe Atomic as "The fastest way to design beautiful interactions". Pull in designs from Photoshop or Sketch, instantly animate between them, and share your prototypes with anyone or view on any device via URL. On the other hand, Proto.io is detailed as "Build high-fidelity fully interactive mobile app prototypes in minutes". Proto.io supports all the major mobile gestures and touch events like tap, tap-hold, swipe, pinch, and zoom. Interaction designers are not limited to a single ‘link’ transition anymore. Instead they can apply animated screen transitions like slide, fade, pop, flip, flow, and turn.
Atomic and Proto.io belong to "Interactive Mockups" category of the tech stack.
Some of the features offered by Atomic are:
- Work your way up from a blank canvas, or pull in designs from Photoshop or Sketch.
- Lay out your states and instantly animate between them, without coding a thing.
- Share your prototypes with anyone or view on any device via a humble URL.
On the other hand, Proto.io provides the following key features:
- Interactive designs
- Prototype for all devices
- Wonderful UI libraries
