Pixel perfect, colour perfect design previews from Mac to iOS and Android

Skala Preview 2.0 (history). macOS 10.8+. Skala View 2.1 for iOS (history). Skala View 2.2 for Android (history).

New in version 2


Plug your iPhone or iPad into your Mac and you’re connected. USB is faster, more reliable and easier to set up than Wi-Fi.

Fit to screen

Skala View is brilliant at previewing designs at specific zoom levels. And now it is also brilliant at fitting your design to the display, for situations where size is more important than pixel accuracy. We’ve also added 25%, 50%, 66.66%, 75%, and 150% image scales.

Status bar

Preview your design with a white, black or no status bar on iOS. Preview your design using immersive mode, or with status bars showing on Android. Using a live, real status bar means you don’t need to include a fake status bar in your design.

New interface

In preparation for our bigger design tool, Skala Preview and Skala View now sports a matching and greatly improved user interface.

Other features

Pixel Perfect

Skala Preview sends lossless, colour accurate image previews to any iOS or Android device. Previews are pixel perfect. Colours are identical to how the final app or website will look on the device.

Realtime Preview

If you’re using Photoshop CS5, CS6 or CC, Skala Preview can preview your canvas as you edit. No saving, no keyboard shortcuts, just lossless previews in realtime.

Send Files & Clipboard

If you’re using other design tools, Skala Preview can send images via files or the clipboard and update each time you save.

Colour Blindness Testing

Ensure your design can be used by those with protanopia, deuteranopia, tritanopia or complete colour blindness. It’s even possible to view different colour blindness testing, orientation or zoom levels on multiple devices at once.
