Overall Satisfaction with Axure

We use Axure for making wireframes, low and high-fidelity prototypes for mobile, tablet and websites. We use Axure for creating UI screens as well, and when we want to integrate vector elements.
  • Gives better interactivity than other tools for complex websites
  • Easier to share HTML code with developers
  • Axure community and support
  • Easy to share and give demos to clients
  • Create your own UI library for future uses
  • You might have go through tutorials and has a learning curve
  • Importing svg could be better
  • License is expensive
  • It has improved client satisfaction and feedback process
It's better than iRise, Mockplus, UXPin etc for high fidelity prototypes. But for more visual UI and vectors I would recommend Sketch if you are a Mac user.
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.

Using Axure

From a usability standpoint I see this being used by UX professionals, and they may requires some tutorials to get up to speed. There is a learning curve to understand advanced capabilities.
