  4. 4. When you email your pitch deck to someone, you don’t have to include installation instructions.
  5. 5. The prototype also works on the iPad without any additional work (and without writing a single line of code)
  6. 6. Here are the assets I use to create my prototypes. (These assets were all created in Keynote)
  7. 7. Here is how you can create your own
  8. 8. 1. Plan your screens and transitions
