use Fireworks in combination with other tools to create complex iOS prototypes (for both the iPhone and iPad) with similar ease?
Great article, must take a look at this properly.
I’ve loved Fireworks for many years, and although I don’t use it as much as I used to (things like Balsamiq Mockups have taken its place) I think it’s an awesome piece of kit, far ahead of any other software for professional web graphic production (and yes, I’m looking at you Photoshop). I hated CS4 and I hate Adobe’s expensive software. At a time when all the other professional tools I use are £20-£50 on average, it seems obscene for Adobe to charge the price of a laptop for a piece of software. I also didn’t like the direction the UI had taken.
It seems it has moved on since I last looked at it, and I’ll definitely check it out again. Maybe it would be worth the cost of an upgrade after all…
