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.

Proto.io

Proto.io definitely takes the cake when it comes to mobile and UI design. It allows for interactive clicking thru screens so you can visualize how your app or product will behave. It's support materials make it easy to learn Proto.io on your own though having a development background will make your experience a bit smoother.

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.

  • Proto.io is very interactive and fluid. It allows you to design an entire app, including interface between screens.
  • It has a very robust library of relevant mobile components.
  • The support and help materials for Proto.io make it easy to use this product on your own.

Cons

  • It would be great if the software helped to generate usable code. It does not.
  • Only allows for simple transitions and not many effects.
  • Image editing within the application is limited. Should at least be able to crop images.

  • There is a bit of a learning curve and is suited for someone with a development background.
  • Sharing across the organization, if not done properly, isn't the easiest.

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

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

Proto.io is definitely the premier mockup and wireframe application. Lucidchart shares some of the capability but can be a bit clunky. Proto.io is interactive and smooth and helps you to see exactly how your UI will look and behave before the development stage. Additionally, it's library of native components is robust.

Return on Investment

  • Positive ROI ... streamlines scope of the application building process.
  • Prevents miscommunication issues between development team and the application requester.
  • Streamlines the aesthetics when the users can create mock-ups of what they are looking for.

  • Proto.io is being used by the entire development group on a fairly regular basis and eliminates the need for paper design.
  • Proto.io's interactive interface and design has helped us to identify UI issues before the actual development stage.
  • Proto.io does not really offer organization charts or workflows and is specific for wireframes and mock ups.
