    For me, it would be particularly useful to be able to just send a linked interactive PDF to a client - where they can click through the app quickly (or quickly send it to someone else in their company).
    I'd need 3 things: 1) I want to send a file others can save 2) without them having to log in somewhere or install a specific app. 3) while still being able to see the flow of the app and how it is supposed to work. Working links, not just static pages.
    Communication is a lot more efficient (and it's more likely for me to get quick responses) when everyone I send the file to can just open it on their devices with tools they already have. But it is important that the buttons still work. When I press a button in the PDF, I need to be taken to the correct next page - like with internal links in interactive PDFs that InDesign can export. The functionality is often hard to understand on static pages without links and require phone calls or long emails which cost a lot of time.

    Also in research projects, it can be incredibly complicated to have people download an app (sometimes this needs specific permissions from the ethics board) when often it would be enough to have an interactive PDF they could be sent and use with PDF readers they have already installed. An interactive PDF that has all the buttons working, but no animations, would be more than sufficient and save a lot of trouble.

    EDIT: I forgot to mention why online preview doesn't fully fit my needs. In a nutshell, it's too unstable. When I gather feedback, I want to make sure that everyone talks about the same version of the design. And when I reference the conversation later, having an archived copy of the design is essential. Organizing, archiving and referencing different versions basically requires a somewhat functional, offline copy.

    Additionally, when ethics boards and sensitive information are involved, you really want a file and not a web link.
