    God forbid a LV user post where it seems intuitive.

    Apple's docs are for engineers; designers should already know how to do their jobs.

    One has to ask themselves if this is really a design decision or product decision... though in most organizations, including my own, it would almost definitely fall on design, for better or for worse.

    Not exactly sure what I'm looking at here.

    Could not disagree with your first paragraph more. Many methods and functions in Javascript only touch front-end elements, and they require basic knowledge of dot syntax as a principle if OO programming. The parent-child aspect of CSS is child's play by comparison.

    Can we just get this out of the way? HTML+CSS is not code. I'm a designer who has taken a few C++ classes and done about a billion PHP and Ruby tutorials, and I can say with confidence that writing linear markup has nothing to do with the written logic we call "programming."

    Every time I read one of these "learn CSS so you can be your own (wo)man!" I can't help but to read a subtext of "you think implementing your weird design is so easy? Do the annoying aspects of this project yourself and maybe you'll come back with another design." grumble grumble

    This is a real problem. Still a damn good product though.

    Sure, there are a lot of apps doing paper prototyping as well — Pop (Woomoo) comes to mind. I'll give you props on your pricing: it's half of Flinto!

    Marvel may have more front-end polish and features, but for rapid prototyping, Flinto is still the champion here. IMO, until someone creates a prototyping tool with a reliable way to capture swipes, or some how get Quartz Composed/Origami on the phone, there isn't market demand for another frame by frame tool.
