Overall Satisfaction with Axure

We use it for prototyping ideas in great detail- it is far superior than other tools for doing more complicated interactions.
  • Executing if/else interactions
  • Creating complex patters
  • UX flow
  • Intuitiveness is lacking (ironically)
  • Lack of tutorials
  • Complicated in-software language
  • Great tool to explain clients the anticipated functionality
  • VERY time consuming
Despite the three being less sophisticated than Axure, I lean towards them because they make rapid prototyping genuinely rapid. I haven't had to show a clickable prototype in my absence, so I prefer showing a prototype that's more user flow oriented than "feature" heavy.
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.
