Turn artwork into an app fast

Create your UI graphics in Photoshop, Sketch, or Illustrator, and import into Storyboard with a couple of clicks. You’ll see your designs turn into an animated interface in seconds.


Bring designs to life with motion

Build embedded products that your customers want to experience. Create 2D/3D animations, add screen transitions, and refine UI movements with easy-to-use animation tools and code within Storyboard.


Simulate on desktop and on target

No hardware yet? No problem. Storyboard's built-in Simulator provides instant validation of how your development is progressing. That way you'll be able to test, debug, and optimize until you feel confident and ready to deploy your prototype or completed project.

Before Crank Software and Storyboard, our embedded UI development time on average took 12 months to complete. Now it takes us 5 to 6 months to get projects done. If we had chosen a different route, I don’t know where we would be today.
