Hey all! Worked on a iOS Safari tabs prototype as my #weekendframer, and throughout most of it, was curious about how y'all find the balance between building a set of smaller prototypes vs building one large & complex prototype. Felt like I went a little overboard with this one using iframes and actual dynamic pages, but curious to talk about the value of either approach.

and when drag text, iPhone is moved too. It looks like a bug in Studio :p I think body has a width as iPhone's real width(before transformed)

if you know how to code use a production system to prototype. framer gets you 70% of the way there then drives you nuts :-) just finished this in framer http://www.visualmagnetic.com/portfolio/do-you-really-have-the-time/ and ranted https://twitter.com/akarve/status/548975271362048000

anything more than you can do in Keynotopia or balsamiq, just go straight to production systems. expression blend was the only system that could do both. framer kind of requires lots of mini prototypes to be manageable but that's s dead end for product and user testing…

Definitely found (in my limited experience with Framer) that keeping the prototypes small and focused on particular interaction details has been where it's shined so far.
