Adobe XD

Using Adobe XD for a website mockup on the latest project I've been working on, with designers and developers, is great in many ways. The designers mocked up buttons, animations to show what would happen if a user clicked a certain button to do an action, and to display that in the mockup with no code what so ever is nice to give the devs and idea on what it is exactly supposed to do base on the designer's eye. Also, having a development link where developers can grab assets, color codes, etc. Like a style guide that no one has to make, XD generates it and you can easily get what you need from it.

Proto.io

Proto.io is the perfect solution for UX/UI designers that need to create and share interactive prototypes. Proto excels at the interactive part. There are so many different ways to make elements change or interact, whether you're viewing the prototype on a computer (mouse clicks) or on a phone (screen touches). We could build and prototype our entire mobile app on here if we wanted to because Proto.io has the customization that we need to make the app look and feel like ours. If you're looking for a software to create wireframes and static mockups, Proto.io is probably overkill for you.

Pros

Adobe XD

  • 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.

Cons

Adobe XD

  • Doesn’t have image editing tools, so having to go back to Photoshop or Lightroom just to make a sight edit can be a pain.
  • Could add some text editing functionality. It feels silly that I have to draw a line under text when I should just be able to underline.
  • Would be nice to have some real-time collaboration functionality.

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

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

I have not had a need to connect with the Adobe XD support team as of yet, but from past experience when dealing with the other products, the support has been very very good, and I would have no reason to think that this product would be any different. There are a good number of training videos on the Adobe site for this product as well as on other social media sites so a quick search should let you find the answers in several different ways.

Adobe XD is everything you would expect from an Adobe offering - seamless integration with creative cloud, easy workflow and great for collaboration. Adobe once again wins over again the competition by ensuring its software works straight out of the box with little to no learning curves. The competition can’t possibly contend with the cross-platform ability available with XD. Not to mention it’s free to use! Well done Adobe.

Proto.io

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

Adobe XD

  • The app is free, so ROI is hard to estimate. The workflow is similar to what you would expect from other apps in this space, so it is definitely worth trying to see if it is a good fit.
  • We also own a license to its main competitor, Sketch, and use both apps. Compared to the value of the apps themselves, all of the main prototyping apps in our toolset are cheap.

Proto.io

  • It helped us rebrand a company to have a better strategy for the target audience
  • It helped a small company new to UX and UI understand it a little more
  • It was easy to teach new people minimizing on boarding time
