The InVision iOS app is available for both iPhone and iPad and allows you to view and collaborate on your prototypes quickly and easily on your device. Read and comment on prototypes; reference, share, and comment on all of your design assets in Boards with a tap; enjoy a faster, higher-fidelity experience online and off; provide feedback directly in-app; and much more.
Installing the InVision iOS App
To get started with the InVision iOS app, you'll need to download the InVision iOS app from the App Store.
Signing in to the InVision iOS App
Once you open the InVision iOS app on your device, you'll be prompted to sign in. Enter your account information (email address and password), then tap the pink Login button. If OnePassword is enabled on your device, you can use that to sign in. The InVision iOS app also supports SSO for Enterprise accounts. Use the Enterprise Login link to access your SSO enabled account. For more info, check out this related article: Accessing a Private Cloud instance via the InVision iOS App.
Sign in to your account, and then view your prototypes under the Prototypes tab:
Tap each prototype to load it onto your phone. Once this is complete, you’ll be able to view them offline in addition to any prototype share links which you have downloaded.
By default, prototypes will be sorted alphanumerically, but once you start using the app, the prototypes will reorder according to what’s been opened most recently.
You can search for prototypes by type or name by tapping the spotlight icon at the top right of your screen and entering a name or type, such as iPad, iPhone, Android, etc.
If you tap a screen in an area without a hotspot, you’ll be able to view hotspot areas. You'll also be able tap and hold on any screen to open a menu that allows you to refresh all screens, share the prototype, enter comment mode, remove the prototype from your device (this will not remove the prototype from your InVision account), view all screens, or exit the prototype.
Heads Up: To view InVision Studio prototypes on our iOS app, use the "Mirroring Studio Prototypes" instructions below. Studio prototypes published to InVision are listed on the Prototypes tab of our iOS app; however, they won't yet open without mirroring.
Mirroring Studio Prototypes
Use the device mirroring feature in Studio to preview prototypes in action on the InVision iOS app.
To mirror a Studio prototype on your iPhone or iPad:
- Ensure that your computer and iOS device are connected to the same WiFi network.
- In the Studio toolbar, click the sync icon () and click the Mirror tab. This will generate a unique QR code.
- In the footer of the InVision iOS app, tap the QR scanner icon ().
- Scan the QR code displayed in Studio. This will automatically mirror the prototype to your device.
To stop mirroring the Studio prototype to your iOS device, at the bottom of the Studio sync dialog, hover over the green dot next to your device name and click the X that’s revealed.
Shortcuts from your Home Screen
Once you’re signed in, you can access shortcuts from your mobile home screen by force touching the InVision iOS app icon. Tap Share InVision to send the app to a friend or stakeholder via text, tap Conversations to go directly to your latest notifications, or tap Open Last Project to go directly to the last prototype or board you viewed.
To share a prototype via the InVision iOS app:
- Open the app.
- Click the ••• button next to your prototype name.
- Click Share Prototype.
- Select how you’d like to share it (email a link, generate a link to copy, or SMS a link). Choosing to share by email will open your email client app. Choosing to share via link will copy a link directly to your clipboard. Choosing to share via SMS will open a text message that you can send.
There is currently no way to share a single screen from the InVision iOS app.
When you use the InVision iOS App, you'll be able to load a prototype once, and it will remain available for offline viewing, unless you sign out of the app. If you sign out, only the prototypes that were loaded via a share link will remain. Enabling airplane mode is recommended, as that will ensure we load from the offline version.
Note: If you load a prototype from a share link, open it, and go offline, the prototype will remain, but you will see a warning message display that changes cannot be downloaded.
