Adobe XD

From the novice designer just getting their feet wet on UX/UI design to teams of scale, this software is a good fit. At the rate they are improving it, there is a chance XD can replace so many tools to fit almost any workflow (esp. Sketch/InVision/Abstract). However, it may be missing some key features at the moment for complex prototyping where Axure is still king.

InVision

InVision is a terrific tool for syncing design work to a central location where other colleagues in your organization can view it. The commenting system works very well at allowing people to comment directly on a page and for recipients of those comments to easily see and respond to a comment.InVision allows for a simple prototype creation, but I find it easier and more robust using other tools. The InVision features are limited for prototype work, but it excels in sharing docs for feedback.

Pros

  • Wireframing/high fidelity mockups. We're using it for both responsive websites and apps.
  • Prototyping. It just gets better with each update, especially with auto-automate.
  • Ridiculously small learning curve. In my opinion, everything seems to be just where I would expect it to be, especially being familiar with other Adobe products.

  • Excellent use for working with teams, especially long distance teams.
  • Access levels allowing you to emulate how a website would behave.
  • Mood boards, I love this feature as a designer.
  • Clickable interactive prototypes really gives the client a much better feel for how it will work.

Cons

  • Rulers and other basic design elements. You can get plugins, but I feel this should be native.
  • Better handling of symbols. I feel they will get to near Sketch-level sooner than later.
  • Online collaboration for teams working on the same project. My guess is this will be coming very soon with the new cloud save feature.

  • Can be a bit slow, especially when upload PSD files...but I wonder how much of that is due to internet speed...
  • A bit of a learning curve when first learning to use it...would like to see a bit more simplified interface to make it more intuitive.
  • You can't switch from screen to screen in the prototype mode, this really should be a priority feature.

Likelihood to Renew

Based on 1 answer
We utilize many of the applications in the Adobe CC suite and our usage of this application came about simply because it was the one that was already paid for. Bearing that in mind we will definitely be renewing the software upon the expiration of the licensing. I am not sure if this is the solution we would go with were it not already included, we would have to evaluate all other options

Usability

Adobe XD8.0
Based on 1 answer
Very easy to use even for novice software users. A lot of the functionality is ubiquitous among the different software applications so the learning curve is relatively small. The biggest limitation may be someone's creativity or lack of it. There are some functional limitations but my understanding is that reviews come out fast and furious

We have never used support for Adobe XD but I'm sure it would be as good as it is for the other Adobe Products

Alternatives Considered

In our program, we utilize both Mac and Windows workstations. We had attempted to use Sketch (another similar application to Adobe XD), but it is only available on Mac platforms which prohibits our students from accessing software at home (which is predominantly Windows PCs). Also, many of our students already have Adobe Creative Cloud subscriptions for access to Adobe Premiere Pro, Illustrator, and Photoshop, so access to Adobe XD is easier than alternative software that accomplishes similar results.

I actually haven't used anything that's similar to InVision, so can't compare. I'm not even sure there is anything out there that can actually compare to InVision. It's an ideal tool for any designer that wants to improve client/team feedback. I highly recommend it and look forward to seeing new features added.

Return on Investment

  • With an Adobe Creative Cloud Subscription, no additional purchase is required.

  • Invision has been used to engage customers, and they like feeling involved.
  • Invision can be a bit misleading on the design state of the product but that's more because it's not a comprehensive clickthrough. When people begin clicking around sometimes they'll assume everything would work even though we remind them it's not a complete product.
