Demo Creation Software Gone Easy

Demo creation software has been the bane of many programmers and developers’ existence for a long time. The truth of it is, it’s never been pleasant to work with, and has never worked quite right. Many platforms have existed over the years, such as kiosk SDKs, point and click interfaces like C&C, Stencyl and the like, and many have tried to use Flash and Java as demo authoring tools as well.

Oh, they work, but they don’t work easily, cheaply or effectively. So, for a long time, when it came to making demos, people were up the proverbial creek, and had little choice but to grin and bear it. But not anymore.

Now, a newcomer to the demo and tutorial creation world is taking the web by storm, and for good reason. Picture a point and click programming template with customized GUI, branching logic and full integration directly into the pages themselves, as native HTML5 and AJAX assets. Now picture it being able to interact with the page, and with the user.

Imagine this framework being able to learn patterns and predict a user’s needs, to continue to demonstrate new features. Imagine if you will, that in an hour’s time, demo versions of various web interfaces and software concepts can be effectively prototyped to demonstrate to perspective buyers or project heads.

Now imagine that this software isn’t imaginary at all. Because, it isn’t. It’s called WalkMe, and it’s everything anyone ever wanted in tutorial or demo creation systems, and it’s affordable and practical right now.

WalkMe was designed with the troubles regarding demo and tutorial creation in mind, and not only is it absurdly easy to use, but it works on anything with a browser. It will even work on net smart devices like set top boxes, consoles and mobile devices. It’s dynamic, and can adjust to fit any type of screen with any amount of available real estate without needing layers of redundant design and code.

It doesn’t matter how limited bandwidth is, if a page can load, WalkMe can load, meaning that unlike old models, WalkMe is compatible with any type of connection as well. There are almost no limitations to the power of Walkme.

With a little bit of commonsense and logic, even the most novice user can create effective demos and tutorials with a series of button clicks, and with a little bit of sense of aesthetics, they can be stunning. It doesn’t matter what needs to be demonstrated, or to what depth, because WalkMe can branch logic and functionality recursively without limits beyond available hardware and RAM.

With WalkMe, tutorials and demos are live, hands-on experiences, not limited little applets or static videos that take heavy connections and navigation to load and learn from. WalkMe understands that when it comes to demos, the proof is in the pudding, so this software is designed to directly demonstrate a process by being able to actually do it itself, or guide a user to do it, with little to no change in logic to do either.

Walkme is revolutionary, and it is not a solution, it is the solution to demo creation software.
