Overall Satisfaction with Adobe XD

Adobe XD is being used by members of our digital media department, though primarily by me. We use Adobe XD to rapidly prototype new website designs and to provide an easy commenting platform for other visual projects. Previously we had often relied on either flat graphics or Word documents, but it was difficult for clients to understand how navigation would work, or where certain changes would appear. With Adobe XD we've cut review times in half for most of these digital projects.
  • Easy, flexible wireframing
  • Simple, but powerful interactions
  • Integrated well with rest of Adobe Creative Suite
  • No motion gifs or HTML video support
  • Scrollable masks can be confusing when scrolling through preview pages
  • Easier templated elements without hunting for specific plugins
  • Free with Adobe Creative Suite
  • Stable and reliable
  • Quick to learn
  • Adds value to the work we're already doing
  • Less client and staff frustration at misunderstandings
  • Quicker approvals and reviews
  • Has prevented cost overruns internally and to freelancers for extra review cycles
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.

Do you think Adobe XD delivers good value for the price?


Are you happy with Adobe XD's feature set?


Did Adobe XD live up to sales and marketing promises?


Did implementation of Adobe XD go as expected?


Would you buy Adobe XD again?


Adobe XD is particularly useful for rapidly prototyping or visualizing changes or new designs for remote work. There are other products in the same category that do similar things (InVision, Zeplin) but they do not have the benefit of such deep integration in the Adobe ecosystem (not to mention being already included in the same suite at no additional cost). There are some higher-end prototyping needs that may not be served by Adobe XD, but I have not run across these for the applications we are currently using it for.
