Adobe XD

Many times in the past the needs of the users weren't necessarily conveyed properly to the application development team which resulted in a lot of unusable work. By having the requester utilize Adobe XD to create a mock up of the software with the intended functionality has been a very successful way of alleviating the aforementioned miscommunication issues

Justinmind

Justinmind is great for UX/UI design. It helps my stakeholders understand design ideas and provide helpful feedback to our development team. It doesn't work great for high fidelity prototypes that rely on data-driven design. But product walk-throughs are great.

Pros

  • The software is light and fast
  • It integrates well with other design softwares from Adobe
  • The phone app lets you test your wireframe directly in your phone

  • Creating low or high-resolution click-through prototypes are very simple. Didn't need any training other than watching a couple of short Youtube videos. The more complex interactions require some more digging, but it's mostly drag and drop.
  • Pricing is on a monthly basis, so it's a great tool to use if you need to ramp up or down. I'll use it to refine our user experience and design, and after that's done I don't have to renew the following month if I don't need.
  • Their templates are nice: I can prototype a phone app using standard templates depending on the device. Makes it easy for our stakeholders to understand and visualize concepts and design.
  • I like the iOS app, it makes it easy to share ideas and designs with others.

Cons

  • Unable to outright purchase Adobe XD software, or select a subscription option for only Adobe XD
  • Constant crashing
  • No image editing functionality, so XD still relies on a photo manipulation software (like Photoshop) for some aspects.

  • Although I like the monthly pricing model, it can become more expensive if you use it often as opposed to some competitors who offer lifetime licenses. But it depends on your usage.
  • There is a learning curve to learning how to prototype, but it isn't bad. Within a few days of poking around, I had a good handle on how to create simple prototypes.

Likelihood to Renew

Adobe XD9.0
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 like the user experience with Justinmind and the pricing. Other products are good depending on your needs, but I don't find myself prototyping enough to validate a lifetime license.

Return on Investment

  • Ease of use means we are up and running in no time.
  • Integrates and is a part of the Adobe CC platform (which we already subscribe to) so there was no additional cost.
  • Online proofing and developer handoff links are the icing on the cake. Keeps everything in one place.
  • Handles all our assets (mostly created in Illustrator) like a dream. Even imports native Photoshop docs, too, so that saves us so much time round tripping.
No photo available
  • Faster design to market process. We can get sign-off on our prototypes and push to development faster than creating pages and pages of documentation.
  • Easy for stakeholders and developers to understand how requirements feed design options, and it's easy to provide several design options to figure out what our stakeholders like best.
  • Easy to do A-B testing with users. We can figure out much quicker what works and what doesn't from a usability standpoint.
