Crank Software Tools
Crank Storyboard Browser is an extension of Storyboard Suite with a WebKit-based HTML5 render engine that allows designers and developers to bring HTML5 content directly into a Storyboard Application and deploy it on an embedded target.
Crank Storyboard™ Designer enables user interface (UI) designers to easily prototype the look and feel of a product, and then move the UI prototype directly to the embedded target for deployment.
Designers maintain full control over the UI and user experience (UX) without having to perform a hand off to an embedded systems engineer.
