Skala View

Skala View


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 Android device.

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 Android or iOS device. Previews are pixel perfect. Colours are identical to how the final app or website will look on the device.

★ Zoom In
Preview at precisely 100%. Zoom to exactly 200% to view a mdpi design full screen on an xhdpi device. Zooming in shows crisp pixels, not an interpolated, blurry mess.

★ Portrait & Landscape
Preview designs in portrait or landscape orientation.

★ 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 an Android 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 device.

★ Multiple Devices At Once
Send to as many devices as you’d like. It’s even possible to view different colour blindness testing, orientation or zoom level on multiple devices at once.

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

★ Brightness
Quickly test your design with a variety of display brightness settings.

Recent changes:
v1.2.2:
Fixes a rare issue where Skala View might crash after you tap the home button to take a break from your uncompromising design work.

v1.2.1:
Fixes an issue where in some cases images would stop loading and the screen would remain black. We love pixels as much as you, and black pixels while a nice use of negative space, aren't always what you want ;)

Crashes a lot. I would be happy if it worked for more than 3 seconds before crashing. It used to work!

Needs immersive mode Like other reviewers, I wish (and would pay for) a version that supported immersive mode on Android. It looks a little weird to have the KitKat navigation buttons on my Nexus 5 obscuring the Lollipop navigation buttons in my mockup. Despite the shortcomings, it's still a great tool.
