Our Approach

You.i Engine One is truly cross-platform. Design for the form factor, not each individual OS. Write one, customizable codebase to manage your entire suite of apps. Abstract common functionality between platforms and deploy to mobile, TV-connected devices, Smart TVs and set-top boxes.

One Codebase

One Codebase

A single, platform agnostic script for all UI changes, bug fixes, and feature updates.

Designer Workflow

A powerful design tool to animate UIs with fluid motion graphics.

Native Experience

Native Experience

Rendering Engine with native capabilities across low- and high-end hardware.

Create

Create consistent user interfaces that speak your brand truth. Involve artists directly in the production process with our Design Workflow powered by Adobe After Effects. Create, iterate, and refine designs without risk directly in After Effects before exporting to code.

  • Build full-page layouts for any form factor.
  • Apply complex 3D animations.
  • Test interaction models with our built-in preview tool.
  • Export all screen assets into code for developer hand-off.

Build

Taking a page out of the gaming world, You.i Engine One follows a build once, deploy everywhere approach to front-end development. Merge integrations and APIs with exported design assets to create a core codebase that can be repurposed for any target platform using pre-built platform bridges.

  • Abstract common app functionalities
  • Render consistently on any device with our custom graphics pipeline.
  • Work directly in C++ or use our Javascript layer for faster production.
  • Punch through to the native OS layer to write platform-specific features.

Integrate

Integrate

A framework purpose-built for video. You.i Engine One offers flexibility when integrating third-party dependencies. We support a handful of popular integrations out of the box and have proven experience integrating with common tools used in the video app ecosystem.

See Integrations
Test

Test faster and more efficiently with You.i Engine One’s Appium driver. Write one script to automate your UI testing across mobile, tablet, connected-TV, and Smart TV devices simultaneously. Compatible with C++ and React Native-based apps.

  • Abstract common actions for universal testing across any platform.
  • Access an in-app dev panel when building in debug mode (RN only).

Deploy

Take advantage of the largest variety of supported platforms from a single development environment. Connect to platform APIs. Render UIs through a custom rendering pipeline. Leverage GPU hardware acceleration to deliver the best performance possible. Deploy to the official store for each platform.
