Overall Satisfaction with Adobe XD
We use Adobe XD in our Product Engineering area, designing interactive prototypes to optimize our development processes for our clients. It came as a tool to better plan the user experience of our implementations, but also as a novelty for the presentations and demos in the sprint finals, where we could show more accurately how the different screens were going to be developed in the future.
- It has a very interactive interface
- It integrates very well with the rest of the Adobe Creative software
- The "Auto Transition" function is very useful for animating.
- Has updates quite often
- It does not allow to complete inputs or text fields in the prototypes.
- It is not particularly cheap.
- They lacks more contact with the community, listening to their suggestions.
- A better marketplace with better plugins is missing.
- Prototype presentation
- Extracting CSS code from prototypes
- Connection stability
- It collaborated with the team organization before developing.
- The price of the software returned in time savings
- Clients see us as a more professional company
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.
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 and extremely easy to learn if you are a designer or a frequent user of the Adobe Creative Suite. Like all Adobe software, the tools, shortcuts, and interface are very similar to each other and allow for easy migration. Now, if you are not a frequent user of Adobe, it will probably cost a bit more to learn how to use the software, plus it is probably not going to be worth the price just for Adobe XD.
