Likelihood to Recommend

Adobe XD

Adobe XD is really great for designers who are already familiar and comfortable with Adobe interfaces and other Adobe tools. The integration between Adobe products is spectacular, and the low cognitive lift of using XD for the first time for Adobe fanatics can really save time and help avoid mistakes that might occur when learning a new product from absolute scratch. I wouldn’t recommend this product for people who need to collaborate in real time, as there is no built-in real-time collaboration functionality.

  • I love that I can use the free version if I need. I started my career on Visio, but when my license expired, I tried to save some money by creating process flows and system diagrams in PowerPoint, Word, and even in Paint when in a bind. But Lucidchart lets me create and share those same processes through their free version. Very nice.
  • Even the free version is great. Sure it doesn't come with all the bells and whistles as the subscription version, but the pricing is a fraction of what Visio costs. If you haven't tried Lucidchart, give it a spin. It's the only tool I've used that made me question whether I'd go back to Visio.
  • It's easy to learn. All drag and drop functionality. Even if you're new to creating diagrams, you'll pick it up quick. They have great tutorials and tips to help you get started.

Cons

Adobe XD

  • 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.

  • Not able to use different kinds of arrows, like one to many, or one to one, just regular arrows.
  • It is really a tool that makes charts well, but that's all you can expect from it.
  • Limited templates.

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 XD

Adobe XD 8.0

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

The software is incredibly easy to use and can be used on both a personal and business scale. It really can help you map out processes in a business or help you begin to formulate ideas for personal or educational use. Having the free version is great since you can test out some limited functionality before committing to purchasing the full version.

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

Adobe XD

I've tried all those softwares and the one that I found better was Proto.io. But, it has a high cost, and as we already had access to Adobe XD by our Adobe Creative Cloud membership, we chose to go with it. Some of those software have more features and functionalities than Adobe XD, but it's important to remember that Adobe XD is still a young software and has a lot of space for improvement, and Adobe is improving it with time.

I love Lucidchart's price point and ability to create process flows and system diagrams. It's easy to use and quick to learn.

Return on Investment

Adobe XD

  • As it is only one of the many Adobe CC softwares that we use through our membership, I'll say that it has a positive impact
  • It helped us prototype for some client projects that we had revenue
  • It helps us prototype for our games in development, which we are getting investment for

  • Saves our PM team time on making charts.
