Perfect anything.

Hone is a fine-tuning tool for people building digital products.

Hone is no longer available. This page serves as a memory.

Hone lets developers expose values from code with an open source library and designers finetune those with a Mac app.

It’s designed for all team sizes and platforms.
Hone works with iOS, OS X and Android.

A framework for developers.
Import the Hone Library, expose selected user interface values and forget about updating them and creating new builds just for those changes.

A visual tool for designers.
Launch the desktop tool, connect to a device running your app and tweak its design iteratively on real time. When satisfied, publish your changes back into your team’s favorite version control system.

“I wasn’t messing around with some virtual demo. I was redesigning a real app, running live, on my phone. It was a novel sensation.”
— Kyle Vanhemert. Wired

“I find Hone interesting for several reasons: it allows quicker development times, concentrating on core functionality and bringing otherwise long and costly polishing phase to client/developer side.”
— Tomaz Kragelj. Gentle Bytes.
