Studio feature 2

100% less coding

Add complex behaviors using PencilCase: Studio’s intuitive Whens & Thens Behavior System. Simply create statements that identify the action (the “when”) followed by the event that will take place (the then). It’s that easy! And thanks to the Whens & Thens visual designer and inspector, you can always tell what is happening.

“PencilCase manages to bring simplicity to an incredibly complex problem and does it in a way so you don’t have to be aware of how powerful it is.”

Leslie Roberts, founder, GoForth Institute.

Animations for everyone

Whether you’re a newbie or an expert, you can add custom animations to enhance your app.

For non-animators, use the physics tool to simulate motion, like gravity, magnets or wind. No need for complicated key frames. For the animators, dive into the animation timeline. Move, rotate, fade and transition anything on your screen.

“If you could take the best parts of Hypercard and Flash and combine them to make native apps for iOS, PencilCase would be it.”

3D as easy as 2D

Incorporating 3D into your app is as easy as adding an image. Import your model into PencilCase: Studio and add interactivity instantly. Incorporate dynamic lighting, animations and even mix and match 3D with 2D.

“The most interesting program at [MacWorld] Expos was PencilCase by Robots and Pencils.”

Code if you want to.

Want to add special functionality not yet supported by PencilCase: Studio? Grab a developer to take your app further using the built-in JavaScript engine, or export it as an Xcode project and finish customizing in Objective-C or Swift. Got the skills to code it yourself? Even better.

Preview while you create

Iterating just got easier. Instantly test your app on your Mac, iPhone or iPad. Play with it. Try to break it. Examine it inside out. Or pass it on to clients, customers or colleagues using the Share Code to get instant feedback. Then continue making in PencilCase: Studio until your app is perfected.
