More and more competitors, agencies, start-ups, tech companies are using Figma instead of Adobe XD or Sketch so our company is trying to get licenses of Figma in addition to Adobe XD. At a large company like us, we already have an Adobe Creative Cloud license so it makes sense to use Adobe XD for a while, but Figma has more functions that are similar to Miro or Mural and the ability to create better design systems.

Figma is also a very good product, but the reason we are still using Adobe XD is because we can grab this software and have multiple projects that are going on at the same time, so it's very hard for to move on to other software. ** The Repeat Grid Feature is super good and, in my opinion, it makes Adobe XD stack up against any other software. **

First off if we talk about Sketch, then Adobe XD has the upper hand because it supports both Windows and Apple Macintosh. Then coming on Axure RP, Adobe XD is far better than Axure. Because it comes with extensive features. Finally, about Figma, Figma is the only rival to Adobe XD. Figma has all the features but lacks somewhere like you can not edit a photo directly to photoshop from Figma and photo drag and drop and resizing photo is a little bit messy in Figma. So, as per my use of the tool Adobe XD works best for me.

Before XD came to the company, screens were designed in Illustrator or Photoshop and a PDF presentation was generated, which was extremely time-consuming. XD saved us a lot of time (and money) by generating interactive prototypes, which are much more tangible for the client than a PDF. The "fight" with Figma is frequent. Both have features in which they are better than their competition. And, while I still choose Adobe XD, don't rule out moving to Figma with its multiple updates.

A little change in layout can lead to massive process in Wix, Although templates and ADI system is good it makes issues sometimes. ADOBE XD has more powerful tools than it and for a customized website, It works very well. basic designing particles in the library can be used directly in projects.

Compared to Sketch, Adobe XD is perfectly capable for most prototyping needs that we have. And it's free! I am less familiar with Figma, but can only say that it was a cost-prohibitive choice at the time we were evaluating. I do believe that Figma has become more sophisticated in some ways since we last used it, and perhaps we will consider it again.

While I have used Zeplin, InVision, and Adobe XD on various projects, partly dependent on in-house client teams preferences, Adobe XD is the most familiar to me based on 20+ years [of] working within Adobe applications. They all can do most of what I am looking to do within their toolset, from what I can tell, but jumping from Photoshop to create raster images and to Illustrator for my vectors, it is very second nature then to bring those right into XD to layout, basically as a digital experience analogy to InDesign.

The fact that Adobe XD is already there in Creative Suite makes it very hard to consider any other product since it works well with what I do.

We have used Sketch software alongside Adobe XD to make prototypes and wireframes of our projects. There are some features which are exclusively available into Sketch and we don't want our clients to get shorted on any features, so that's why we use both.

It's a lot easier to prototype ideas and make mock-ups faster in Adobe XD than it is to in say Photoshop. Figma is fairly similar but XD works with the Adobe ecosystem and I feel is easier to learn and use and the way you can share XD links is what I really like.

Adobe XD is very comparable to most of the other wireframing and UX builders on the market. One of the big advantages is that it works on both a Mac & PC environment removing a possible tech barrier. The similarity with the other Adobe products makes it easy to get up to speed, with only a little bit of designer training. It was easy to start using it as it's part of the Adobe Creative Cloud system and interacts well with all the products in that line.

I do not use Sketch consistently as it is designed for Mac computers but Sketch is an alternative to consider if you don't have an Adobe Creative Cloud Subscription. Sketch is a one-time charge, has an intuitive interface. There is a low learning curve and has useful collaboration features. It will work with illustrator assets. Some other drawbacks, besides only being made available for Mac, is that the license is only for one device.

We actually use Figma, Sketch, and InVision along with XD in our design practice. We mainly use XD on quick prototypes or experimentation for mobile projects. We always end up falling back to Sketch+InVision for our Design System Implementations and developer collaboration though. XD hasn't been robust enough in those areas for us to feel comfortable using it that way.

Great wire-framing tool!

Adobe XD is a very useful tool for building wireframes, but I've now turned to Figma for my go-to wireframing and prototyping software. The thing that both Adobe and Figma have going for them is that they're available on Windows, as well as Mac. A lot of tools are Mac-only. Figma goes the extra mile by having a browser-based version of its software, which still has all the same features and functionality that their desktop app has.
In all Figma just seems to be more feature-rich and still very easy to use.

I think in the next year XD will make Sketch irrelevant. It's sad to see giants like Adobe flat out copying independent companies, but it's hard to say no when XD is already included in my CC subscription. They have (mostly) the same features, so it's just a no-brainer.

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.

The biggest benefit of Adobe XD for us is how easily we can use it based on our familiarity with Adobe products and because of the product’s integration with other Adobe products. There can be extra tasks when working, say, with Adobe Photoshop and Sketch. With XD, working between Adobe products is much more seamless.
