How To Use Mirr.io Sketch Prototyping Plugin

Prototyping in Sketch

The Mirr.io plugin for sketch enables you to design and test in real-time using the Sketch app. This can be a huge time saver for designers and developers. I am going to show you how it works.

This video will walk you through a very simple design that I turn into a working prototype, all in under fifteen minutes.
