Browse a live website in the Simulator

Is it possible in invision or invision studio to run and browse a live website from within the iphone simulator? So I can say get a button to link to a live URL and then scroll and interact with that site in the mobile simulator? If so how do I set this up?

Hi Josh,

Thank you very much for reaching out here in Community about this desired behavior. While this is not available for Studio prototypes at this time, our team is currently tracking interest for this potential Studio feature. Please let me know if you would like me to open a ticket on your behalf tracking your vote for the ability to link to external URLS in Studio.

In the meantime, you are able to achieve this behavior with Craft Prototype by using hotspots. Follow these steps:

1. Choose the originating layer and press C.
2. At the top of your canvas, click External URL and enter the destination of an external web page. 
Note: For the hotspot to function, the URL must begin with http:// or https://.
3. Check the Open in new window box if you’d like to open the link in a new browser window when clicked. Select Add Link to save.

To learn more about creating links for Craft Prototype, check out this help article.

Please let me know if you have any other questions.
