Crank Software announced today that it has been named a Proven Partner in the Freescale® Semiconductor Connect partner program. Crank Software develops Storyboard Suite, a turnkey UI development software that makes it easy for i.MX users to build graphical UIs and ultimately get their products to market faster.
“Creating an embedded device with a successful, graphical UI is a priority for many of our i.MX customers,” said Michael Norman, Software and Tools Technical Marketing Manager, Microcontroller business at Freescale. “We chose to partner with Crank Software because we are confident that with Storyboard Suite, our customers can get the best UIs possible for their devices, taking advantage of a collaborative process and short development time.”
Crank Software is excited to announce the release of Storyboard Suite 3.2 today!
Storyboard Suite 3.2 brings increased functionality to UI designers and embedded developers continuing to make it easy for your teams to develop, prototype, and refine a UI until it’s perfect for a customer – both in function and in design.
Additionally, we’ve improved the overall usability of Storyboard so you now benefit from simpler tools for off-screen content editing, 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.
Crank Software, an innovator in embedded user interface (UI) solutions, today announced Crank Storyboard Browser, an extension of Storyboard Suite with a WebKit-based HTML5 renderer that allows users to bring HTML content directly into a Storyboard Application and deploy it on an embedded target.
“We see the benefits of HTML5 and wanted to bring its capabilities to UI engineers without making them outsource WebKit development, which takes months and strains budgets,” said Brian Edmond, Crank Software president. “With Storyboard Browser, developers get exactly what they need – a version of WebKit that integrates HTML5 content into an easy-to-use Storyboard application.”
To get a UI development tool and a WebKit-based application that renders HTML5 content, product teams traditionally must piece together a multiple-vendor solution, but with Crank Software, teams can simply use the proven Storyboard Suite with the Storyboard Browser extension for a single-vendor, seamless solution to creating the best UI possible.
