Go from an app design in Sketch to a fully working project
    in Xcode in minutes

  •  Sketch

    Create your app design in Sketch just like you do today. No need to use any special templates of follow any particular conventions or rigid workflows. But thoughtful names for the layers in your design will help in the mapping step later.

  •  Import

    Take the .sketch file and import it into App Storyboard Tool. You don't even need to purchase Sketch to read and import the .sketch file. If you are a large team with designers and developers, that can be a considerable cost saving.

  •  Map

    Go through the layer tree in the design and map each element, text, button, etc to the corresponding iOS UI control. Many attributes are automatically carried through from the design, like font specifications, colors, size and positions. Some attributes you need to specify, like should this control be mapped to an IBOutlet, should this button trigger an IBAction or a storyboard segue.

  •  Shortcuts

    You can drive App Storyboard Tool with your mouse by clicking lists, menus and drop downs, and filling out the occasional text field. Just like you'd expect from any intuitive Mac app. But you can also use keyboard shortcuts to do all the work without your hands leaving your keyboard. With just a few keystrokes you can very quickly map a large number of UI controls.

  •  Generate

    This is the best part! App Storyboard Tool will take the information from the Sketch file and the mapping information you provided, and generate the necessary code, image assets and storyboard, so you can just click Run in Xcode and see your app design come to life in the simulator and on your device. The generated storyboard matches the design exactly. No more endless tweaking coordinates in Interface Builder. No more wasting time going back and forth with the designer just to make sure everything matches up.

  •  Not a Prototype

    There are many rapid prototyping tools out there. App Storyboard Tool is not one of them. It may be just as fast as some of the other tools, but the end result is so much more than a throwaway prototype. You end up with a regular Xcode project with Swift or Objective-C code that you instantly recognize, a populated asset catalog, and a fully working storyboard. This is the Xcode project that you will continue to work on to complete your app.
