Figma shared their latest updates and I have to admit. They are killing the game! ⚡ I am a big fan and it has definitely sped our workflow at ABDZ. This monthly update includes GIFs in prototypes, Figma plugins (coming real soon!), Text improvements within one click and more. Some are big and others are smaller enhancements BUT it overall this design tool is getting better and better. If you haven’t tried Figma yet, I strongly advise you to give it a try. Like now!
In their words
GIFs in Prototypes
Whether you’re prototyping a mobile app, designing a product user flow, or putting together a presentation, GIFs are a simple way to make your designs more dynamic—and perhaps bring smiles to a few faces. GIFs can stand in for motion designs, video elements, and subtle animations that can otherwise be hard to represent faithfully in prototypes. Get the GIF starter template here.
Support for Overscroll Behavior
👀 ICYMI: We added momentum scrolling, support for overscroll behavior, and a brand new touch cursor to make interacting with your mobile prototypes feel even more real. pic.twitter.com/p7UzS13tRT
