Frequently Asked Questions
What is ScriptKit?
ScriptKit is a touchable programming environment for building simple mobile prototypes on iPad using native iOS UI components and social media APIs, available via an intuitive drag and drop interface.
What can I make with it?
ScriptKit is designed to help you build functional interfaces that use real data as quickly as possible. Want to build a quick interface to test a new API? Write a script that downloads your Instagram photos and saves them to your Dropbox? Test a new design? You can do it with ScriptKit.
How much does it cost?
The app is free, and comes bundled with examples that you can play with. To create and save your own scripts requires a one-time in-app purchase of $19.99.
Can I export the apps I make?
Yes. You can export your script from the editor, and use the XCode template found here
to run your script as a standalone app in the XCode iOS simulator.
Can we get a customized version of ScriptKit for internal development?
We are willing to work with partners on a case-by-case basis to build customized versions of ScriptKit that can be used for internal prototyping and development (if you have a private API you'd like to support, for example). Please send us an email
for more information.
How can I share what I've made with a friend?
Currently, the easiest way is to use the integrated Gist
support to save your script to a Gist. Send the URL of the Gist to your friend, and have them open the URL in the in-app web browser (hint: scroll down in the right hand panel in the editor), copy the script source, and paste it into their editor.
