Using Dropbox for your assets
Proto.io lets you sync your Dropbox account to your Proto.io account to easily have access to your assets. When you update an asset in Dropbox that’s used in a Proto.io project, Proto.io will automatically update your project keeping all of your interactions and animations intact.
Furthermore, this is an easier way to organize your design assets - in folders, in your Dropbox account.
