Great product for large teams and complex web projects

Likelihood to Recommend

Axure RP is a solid choice for creating complex and highly interactive prototypes. This product leans more toward offering high interactivity, where other products lean toward high design. Axure prototypes can be published online through AX Share which is a great way to circulate prototypes in a large organization with many stakeholders.

Axure RP rapidly prototypes for quick wins with customers

Score 8 out of 10
Vetted Review

Likelihood to Recommend

Axure is the ideal tool for taking feedback from a customer workshop, returning to the office and developing prototypes for future application workflows. In turn, one can then return to the customer site, share the prototypes with the customer and receive feedback on those prototypes, including opportunities for improvement. This eliminates much of the product development uncertainty as to whether the development team is building the right thing for the customer.

Axure: Robust and Proven, but Less Efficient

Score 7 out of 10
Vetted Review
Verified User
Review Source

Likelihood to Recommend

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.

Axure RP is a robust prototyping and wireframe tool that is great for team projects.

Likelihood to Recommend

Axure RP is a great user experience design toolkit that gives UX designers the ability to create user flows, Low-Fidelity, and High-Fidelity mockups all within the same tool. Overall, it works well with teams of designers looking to collaborate on the same project(s). Axure RP allows you to set up masters and components, giving you and your team the ability to share and re-use styled objects. This not only cuts down on the time allotted for wireframing, but it also means design styles are upheld and the overall software becomes more consistent. I would not recommend Axure for High-Fidelity visual design mockups (use Sketch App instead), as Axure is limited in it's the ability to style components.

Axure is great for smaller prototypes

Score 8 out of 10
Vetted Review

Review Source

Likelihood to Recommend

Well for small suited for prototyping features within an application, rather than the entire application itself. However, can be suited for a limited range mobile application.

Not well suited for large desktop applications, unless special care is made to manage multiple Axure files by feature.

Not well suited if the application's usability requires a complex animation or transition.

Robust and feature-packed, but with a learning curve

Likelihood to Recommend

If you are doing intricate prototypes with live data and extensive functionality, this is the software of choice by far. If all you need is something to visually show a concept to stakeholders and collect feedback, there are many other options that are easier to learn and use. It all depends on what you plan to accomplish.

Great for detailed, robust prototyping, but clunky with a high learning curve.

Likelihood to Recommend

I find myself rarely reaching for Axure anymore. While it's great for very detailed, realistic prototypes, the unintuitive and clunky interfaces slows down my design process greatly. It's also quite a bit more software than I need for simply sending a mockup to a client for them to get a feel for how a user would interact with their product. The one time where it really is a step above other software is when I am not the one building the website, and need to send a prototype directly to a developer.

Choose Axure for life-like Prototypes

Score 9 out of 10
Vetted Review
Verified User
Review Source

Likelihood to Recommend

Axure is excellent for creating prototypes that are indistinguishable from the original without requiring coding or graphic design (Photoshop) skills. It is perhaps less well suited for low fidelity prototypes than tools that are suited specifically for that purpose. It is also not great for projects where multiple designers are working on the same product concurrently.

Axure the wireframe and prototyping solution for a windows user

Score 8 out of 10
Vetted Review

Likelihood to Recommend

Axure is great if you are looking for a more than basic wireframing/prototyping tool. This is, in my opinion, the best current option for Windows users. If you are looking to create wireframes for websites of a simple mobile application this software will be great for you. If you are looking to design HI-FI prototypes of complex systems look for Adobe XD to leave beta soon.

Axure remains the top wireframing tool for UI/UX design

Likelihood to Recommend

A primary strength of Axure is that it is an ideal tool on both ends of the fidelity scale. Simple wireframes can be designed, generated, and shared in minutes, while highly complex enterprise applications can be prototyped and demonstrated to stakeholders and users alike.

Most important for us in mockup wireframes and here Axure is very well suited, maybe would be worth it to receive html output base on bootstrap framework, but just an initial HTML, not final, because at the end of a day programmer has to correct this HTML, there is also requirements for this workflow possibility, because sometimes user would like to see how the process will work.

Axure RP Review: One of the best prototyping tools.

I think for now Axure is one of the best prototyping tools available. This is best suited for creating complex web/mobile prototypes with interactivity. If you are just creating wireframes and/or towards importing ai/psd to prototypes, then this fine but there are different tools that are easier to use.

Really, truly, rapid.

Likelihood to Recommend

Axure is better for developing complex prototypes. For example, executing parallax and complicated modal appearance, dialogues and conditional fields can be done with ease on Axure. That being said, I don't think Axure qualifies as a "rapid prototyping" tool per se. For example, I could write out functionalities using HTML and CSS faster than trying to figure out Axure's complicated jargon and trying to understand how to make it work.

Axure - perfect for any project

Score 9 out of 10
Vetted Review

Likelihood to Recommend

Axure is best for conceptual design, requirements validation, and user experience. I love using Axure for projects where the business and stake holders don't have a clear defined idea of what exactly they want. It allows me to show concepts and requirements visually and make changes on the fly based on input. Axure won't be much help if the application or solution discussed doesn't have a user interface, or if the ability to see data flow within the application is critical in the conceptual design.

Axure is best suited when you are working in a distributed environment on cross platform tools. There are other tools that are more appropriate for mobile specific work. If you already have a robust process with a different graphics program (like Photoshop or Sketch) it may be more appropriate for you to find a prototyping tool that is better equipped to work with that existing process (For instance, a Hotspotting tool like Marvel or InVision)

Axure - a powerful prototyping tool

Score 8 out of 10
Vetted Review

Review Source

Likelihood to Recommend

Axure is great if you are creating low-fidelity prototypes and want to take the same into high-fidelity ones. This means you can use real data, create animations, add hotspots and have a robust experience. Axure is not suitable if you want to add more UI elements like emphasis on typography, color, create vectors, posters and other graphic elements. I look at it not as a design based tool (like Illustrator or Sketch) but more as a development based design tool.

Axure is well suited for creating and demoing prototypes to large groups. It's very easy to share prototypes using the unique link generated while publishing a file. Axure is great for replicating real-like websites and apps due to the deep level of interactions that it can create.

Well suited for:
Demonstrating a design that involves many pages.
Demonstrating a completely NEW design - it is hard for the LOB to imagine your vision of the design when you tell them in words. When you use Axure you can show it to them. I love it because it saves a lot of time explaining them

Axure is well suited to prototyping for desktop applications, websites, web application, apps for smartphones and tablets, but I would like to have some options to do prototyping for smartwatches, wearables and streaming devices such as Apple TV as well.
Also, I wish to have stronger features and functionality for better flow charting and retire my OmniGraffle.
