Hi there everyone,

is there a way to control or trigger an XD prototype running on a mobile device with a remote control? A wireless keyboard or something.

 

Thanks in advance!

As far as I know those triggers only work with computers. But not with smartphones and tablets.

 

I design interactive prototypes for movies and for instance I need a smartphone to look like as if is receiving a notification triggered when asked.

You are demo-ing, right? Then mirror-screencast, or a hidden button?

Unfortunately all interactions must be remotely controled. I use Power Point and Keynote in these cases, though I’d prefer to use XD instead. But remote control is necessary and screencasting is not stable enough.

Keynote (and Power Point) allow to be remotely controlled ALSO on smartphones and tablets. Adobe XD only on computers. So: no, I do not screencast. Presentations run natively on the device and can be controlled with a wireless keyboard.
