Axure RP

Axure is a robust tool for teams who seek a reliable, proven, and powerful prototyping tool (and have the budget for it!). Because it has been around for a longer time than some similar products, it includes a ton of features to make incredibly realistic and interactive prototypes. Teams who use Axure will likely benefit from how the tool enables users to create master designs that designers can share and reuse, saving time that may otherwise have been spent building a design from the ground up. However, this tool can be very difficult for new users to learn, so it’s not a great solution for teams who don’t have a lot of wiggle room between adopting the tool and using it to create designs on a deadline. Also, the tool is less intuitive than some of its other competitors, which can make it more time-consuming to whip up a design. For teams who often need to iterate on prototypes quickly, Axure is likely not to be the most efficient solution.

Miro is well suited for scrappy collaborative exercises like affinity mapping where the relative spatial relationships are more important and visual design is less so. The sticky notes features are easy to use and can quickly capture a lot of information. Miro is less well suited for designing user journey maps or other diagrams you want to look nice because the design capabilities are more limited. It does offer templates which can be easy to work with but more difficult to customize.

Pros

Axure RP

  • Axure RP allows you to use adaptive views which is great for responsive design and development.
  • Axure RP is a very robust prototyping tool that has the ability to add realistic interactions.
  • There are numerous templates and formats available for wires, user flows, etc.
  • Master styles make it easy to update design features across numerous project pages, taking out the monotonous work.

Miro

  • Built-in video chat.
  • Limitless whiteboard with frames to enable easy navigation.
  • Organizer tools allowing me to bring collaborators to my cursor or look at my view.
  • Ability to invite people from outside my organization.
  • Quick orientation before people can effectively interact.
  • Customizable controls for mouse or trackpad.

Cons

Axure RP

  • Sharing and versioning of the prototypes when working with multiple designers. It uses Subversion to checkout pages and components while they are being worked on, but issues and errors occur frequently.
  • The functions that allow interactions can be basic and cumbersome so when it comes to complex animations or transitions, Axure could really use improvements. . Collision can happen with interactions causing unintended results. Workarounds have to be made to create a complex interaction to describe how the interaction should function.
  • Too many interactions or a large prototype can cause slow performance. So its better to keep the prototype small. However, a larger project would need a different solution or approach to manage features. Can be difficult when aiming for consistency within the interactive wire.

  • I also have a personal account. I'd like to be able to toggle between the two without having to log out.
  • When adding text into a shape, it doesn't seem possible to change the font size of one part without changing all of it. For example, if I want to create a title and make the font bigger, I can't do that.

Usability

Axure feels like a tool that started with a simple interface that wasn't redesigned over time. Simple tasks sometimes require clicking through multiple layers. Crucial pieces of functionality are hidden under text links, or just flatly aren't discoverable. Much of the quirks of the interface only come from having screwed up numerous times, and knowing that certain things are just difficult to accomplish.

It's intuitive for the most part but some elements are a little clunky to work with. Particularly, resizing text, aligning boxes, and spacing things out evenly can be challenging without alignment and measurement functionalities. The tool is probably designed for more scrappy, rapid mapping rather than polished, final deliverables, so the usability for that use case is pretty good.

I've never used the support for Axure but they do have an online community that can be helpful when you're unsure how to accomplish a specific bit of interactivity. Overall the community for Axure is a great benefit for the software. There are also a lot of shared library assets which can help reduce the time you spend on projects.

I have not yet had to engage support live. I have found every answer I needed by tapping the extensive knowledge base. I think they are taking the right approach in allowing me to self serve when I need some info. I will update my review if and when I need to tap a live representative.

Alternatives Considered

Axure RP

Axure is more full features than most of its competitors. We needed the interactivity that Axure provides and that others were lacking in. We also had some individuals on the team that were familiar with Axure from their prior experience and we wanted to take advantage of that knowledge to quickly roll it out.

Miro

Miro feels more intuitive than InVision. I think of the two as Apple (Miro) and Android (InVision). Both are very good products and you can ultimately do what you need to with them, but Miro has that X-Factor where everything "just works". I was invited to a board, having never even heard of Miro. I was using it pretty adeptly within a few minutes because everything I wanted to do, I could. And everything I expected to find on the board in a certain location was right there. And the best thing is it's not "over-designed". It doesn't have 5 million features that make it bloated and slow. They've found the balance of function and form. That's the sign of a well made product

Return on Investment

Axure RP

  • Putting designs to paper makes it easier for those on the business side to evaluate the cost of the project beyond just looking at written requirements.
  • Axure licenses are very expensive and may not be well suited for small businesses or individuals.
  • Axure licenses are permanent rather than being subscription based which saves money in the long run.
