What is ProtoPie Connect?

ProtoPie Connect is an advanced extension for ProtoPie Studio that empowers designers to create prototypes that mimic real-world interactions across multiple devices, displays, hardware components, and APIs.

Essentially, ProtoPie Connect serves as a communication hub, using socket.IO technology to link various clients, including:

This connectivity enables a more dynamic and realistic simulation of how products will function in diverse and interconnected environments.

ProtoPie Connect opens up limitless possibilities. Here are a few ways it can be used:


How do I add the Connect add-on to my Basic plan?

To add the Connect add-on to your existing Basic plan, please visit the Manage Billing section on ProtoPie Cloud and select the add-on for purchase. If you are new and planning to subscribe to the Basic plan, you can include the Connect add-on during your initial subscription process.

How do I add the Connect add-on to my Pro plan?

You can choose the Connect add-on directly while subscribing to the Pro plan. If you decide to add it later, simply visit the Manage Billing page on ProtoPie Cloud to purchase the add-on.

If your Pro plan subscription was started before May 9, 2024, and you wish to remove the Connect add-on, follow .

How is the Connect add-on billed?

The Connect add-on must be purchased for each individual editor, not for the team as a whole.

  • If your team consists of 5 editors, you must purchase the add-on for each editor; it cannot be applied to just one or a few editors.
  • The add-on is billed according to your subscription plan: monthly if you're on a monthly plan and annually if you're on an annual plan.

Can I try ProtoPie Connect with the Free plan?

Yes, as a Free plan user, you can try ProtoPie Connect at no cost. Simply download ProtoPie Connect from our download page and log in using your free plan email address.

Please note that the free version has certain limitations. To access additional features, consider upgrading to Connect Core or Enterprise.
