Imagine you're a designer of graphical interfaces (GUIs) for embedded devices. If you are reading this blog, you likely resemble this. Now, picture receiving a box that contains everything you need to realize the dream of getting a functioning prototype of your designs up and running in minutes--on a real device, not your desktop. Pretty awesome picture, right?

Our Storyboard Suite 3.2 release last year was packed full of new features for the design, embedded engine and browser. Now that it has been "in the wild" for 6 months and customers have been using it to create user interfaces (UI) for their embedded applications, we've been getting great feedback about which features users love, which ones could benefit from a little refinement, and which new features would be helpful to respond to embedded UI design pain points. We value the comments and questions we get from our customers, because it provides us an opportunity to make Storyboard better and to constantly fine tune the experience of building UIs for embedded applications.
