If you design, develop, or architect Websites, then OverSite is the app you’ve been waiting for… even if you didn’t know it! OverSite makes it simple to mock up and prototype your Website. You can quickly define your site’s overall structure… and OverSite will automatically generate a graphical site map. Creating wireframes of your individual pages—complete with hyperlink navigation between pages—is a breeze. You can attach notes to your wireframes to provide further details. And once you’re done, you can export your site structure to a number of different formats.
OverSite’s rich feature set includes:
An easy-to-use structure editor with drag-and-drop functionality and the new Rapid Structure Creator.
A wireframe editor, allowing you to mock up pages and screens of your site.
Detailed notes attached to widgets within your wireframes.
Reusable wireframe components with OverSite’s composites and templates functionality.
Automatic sitemap generation with customizable colors, fonts, and other UI elements.
Ability to test site interaction with OverSite’s Clickthru browser.
Ability to import pre-existing Web sites, and modify their site structures.
Ability to export site structures as folders and HTML files, clickable images, and other formats.
Get started quickly
|OverSite’s Rapid Structure Creator lets you simply type in your website’s structure…
||At the click of a button, OverSite will transform your text into a full-blown site architecture!
Widgets and wireframes with ease
OverSite’s rich menu of widgets lets you create wireframes and interactive mockups, and includes:
Library of Common Images/Icons
Rectangles and Squares
Spreadsheets and Tables
Dialogs with Templates
Don’t like the default look of the components? Customize them however you want them to; size, colors, border sizes, fonts, and more can all be easily modified. Even the overall painting effect can be set to anywhere from no effect at all, to subtle shading, to glassy Web 2.0 effects. Don’t want to tweak the look and feel of every component individually? Just define your own custom styles and apply them to all of your components with the click of a button.
But OverSite’s just getting started at that point. Its Composite tool lets you construct your own complex components, based on OverSite’s built-in components, that you can apply over and over again throughout your wireframes. Because let’s face it… repetition sucks! OverSite’s alignment, arrangement, and even-distribution tools let you quickly place components onto a wireframe, then even more quickly lay them out properly. Take advantage of a section’s wireframe canvases to create partial layouts that will appear in all of that section’s pages. Want to create a slight variation on an existing page? Don’t start from scratch with a new page; don’t even start with a cut & paste copy of the existing page! Just create a Version of the page, and make your modifications there!
Create a page… and then create a Version and make a few tweaks
Clarify your mockups
Annotate your wireframes by attaching notes to your widgets. Notes describe the type of each widget, and any other information you need to provide to ensure your mockups are crystal clear.
And lots more…
OverSite’s list of features goes on and on and on… From autogenerated—yet fully-customizable—sitemaps,to built-in interaction testing (in regular or full-screen mode), to a plethora of exporting options, there’s a lot of functionality packed into this tiny price!
What are people saying about OverSite?
“This is the most full-featured and easy-to-use IA/wireframing/prototyping tool that I’ve come across and frankly I’m amazed that I’ve taken so long to discover it (it’s been around for 3 years).”
- Christian from SmileyCat web design blog, A Better Way to Create Information Architectures, Wireframes and Prototypes
“Thank you very much for creating OverSite – from my point of view it’s a blessing.”
- Tony Cundiff
“I have been using it for a week in two different projects and I’m impressed. Does what it says very well. Building the wireframes and prototyping the navigation is very fast and painless.”
“I’ve been using this great little program for awhile, and the more I use it, the more useful I find it. The developer is friendly and helpful as well, and has even added bits of functionality that I’d asked for!”
OverSite requires the following to run:
- Mac OS X 10.4 or greater.
- A Java 1.5 (or higher) runtime.
(OS X, up through 10.6 Snow Leopard, includes this by default. Users of 10.7 Lion will be prompted to download the latest version of Java the first time OverSite is launched.)
