What's New

### USB

Plug your phone or tablet into your Mac and you’re connected. USB is faster, more reliable and easier to set up than Wi-Fi. It even works when using airplane mode.

### Fit to screen

Skala View is brilliant at previewing designs at specific zoom levels. And now it is also brilliant at fitting your design to the display, for situations where size is more important than pixel accuracy. We’ve also added 25%, 50%, 66.66%, 75%, and 150% image scales.

### Status bar

Preview your design with a white, black or no status bar on iOS. Using a live, real status bar means you don’t need to include a fake status bar in your design.

### Presbyopia

With the addition of Presbyopia, Skala View’s realtime filters now simulate all common visual impairments, helping you create more inclusive designs.

App Description

Skala View is the companion app to Skala Preview for Mac — the fastest way to send pixel perfect, colour perfect design previews from your Mac to your iPhone or mobile device.

Skala Preview can be downloaded from:
bjango.com/mac/skalapreview/

Previewing your design in situ lets you test tap sizes, text sizes, colour, contrast and ergonomics, all at a time where changes can be easily made — during the design process. It closes the loop, meaning you can iterate faster to a better final design.

### Pixel Perfect ###

Skala Preview sends lossless, colour accurate image previews to any iOS device. Previews are pixel perfect. Colours are identical to how the final app or website will look on the device.

### USB ###

Plug your phone or tablet into your Mac and you’re connected. USB is faster, more reliable and easier to set up than Wi-Fi. It even works when using airplane mode.

### Portrait & Landscape ###

Preview designs on an iPhone, iPod or iPad in portrait or landscape orientation, and on devices with Retina and non-Retina displays. If you’re creating an iOS app, we have it covered.

### Realtime Preview ###

If you’re using Photoshop CS5 12.0.4 or newer, Skala
Preview can preview your canvas as you edit. No saving, no keyboard shortcuts, just lossless previews in realtime. It is the absolute fastest way to preview a design mock up on a mobile device.

### Send Files & Clipboard ###

If you’re using Fireworks, Pixelmator, Acorn, another image editor or an older version of Photoshop, Skala Preview can send images via the clipboard or by dragging files to its dock icon or window.

The clipboard is sent automatically, so you don’t have to break your workflow to send — Just copy something and it’ll appear on your iOS device.

### Multiple Devices At Once ###

Send to as many iOS devices as you’d like.

### Colour Blindness Testing ###

Ensure your design can be used by those with protanopia, deuteranopia, tritanopia or complete colour blindness.
