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.

Lucidchart

If you want to get your firm organized and document processes, workflow, org charts, or map out an idea, this software is great. It can be used whether it's on a company-wide scale, for personal, or educational use. There is a free version but it is limited in terms of functionality so depending on what you need it for you may have to upgrade. I recommend the paid version for a large company. If you're an individual I recommend the free version if it suits your needs.

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.

  • Organizational charts
  • Floor plan / office layout planning
  • Process mapping

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.

  • It can get really cumbersome and therefore hard to read as you have many elements of the chart. Hard to keep scrolling and get a bigger picture.
  • Exporting the charts to Google docs was a bit of a hassle.
  • It was a challenge to learn how it works. Onboarding tutorial experience can be improved.

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

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 is the only wireframing application that we have used here as it came with our creative cloud subscription. After testing it out the software worked great for our needs and I cannot imagine other software that could suit our needs better, unless they included some missing features like effects and a way to export usable code

Lucidchart is Enterprise oriented and that means fluent and secure integrations with security systems and other enterprise solutions like Office365 and Google Drive.
