About Adobe XD

Adobe XD is an on-premise prototyping software that helps businesses of all sizes create designs for websites and applications using animation tools in real-time. It allows graphic designers to design mockups or wireframes and test them across various devices including mobile, desktop and tablets.

The software enables teams to flat images into 3D pictures by moving the objects forward or backwards to provide augmented and virtual reality experiences. Professionals can utilize Adobe XD to create different shapes, modals, or buttons and automatically adjust components while moving or resizing objects. It also allows administrators to replicate elements such as contact lists, photo galleries, menus, and other lists to create grids with customizable content.

The platform lets businesses collaborate with team members or clients, share designs, receive suggestions, and respond to feedback in the same thread. Adobe XD enables managers to synchronize used designs, animations, logos, colors, fonts, and more to reuse the assets.

UX Design tool to design world class products

Reviewed on 2021/06/18

My overall experience in designing various kinds of application ranging from simple websites to complex SaaS products with Adobe Xd has been very smooth as it helps me to easily collaborate with developers and also export the design in multiple formats like Pdf, png, jpg etc.

Pros

Some of the best features I like in Adobe Xd are
1) It helps me to design and prototype 3d Products and also can create animation concepts using X and Y transforms
2) Its very easy to exchange assets from other Adobe products like illustrator and photoshop
3) It provides various design view options like presentation, design feedback, development and many more.It also helps to create password protected design presentation links.
4) Adobe XD mobile app that helps me to see the live preview when designing mobile apps.
5) Organisation of design files into different folders which helped to differentiate designs of various projects.
I really love the design presentation features that Adobe XD provides as it is more realistic and accurate

Cons

The cost of the tool is pretty expensive and there are lot of restrictions in the free version of the tool which may stop beginners or budding designers from trying Adobe XD to design products.

Adobe's Attempt to Compete with Sketch

Oberall, my experience is good and I will tend to use it, but not exclusively. Sometimes I mock right in code, other times I work statically first, and when I do, I will use Adobe XD about 60 to 65% of the time. I think it's getting closer each update to being the unrivaled tool for the job for me, but it's not quite there yet. It is, in the grnad scheme of things, a relatively new product.

Pros

I like that it's part of the Adobe Suite, which may or may not be desirable for some. But since I work with the Creative Cloud, it's a useful prototyping software that has some value over other Adobe programs like Illustrator and Photoshop when it comes to sketching out static mock ups of web designs. It's also useful to have the quick share feature by uploading your work to the cloud, for clients to review.

Cons

It can still be a little clunky, for me, as someone who is used to working in Illustrator. It's kind of a little like the other Adobe programs, and a little bit different, so that can be confusing, despite the fact that some of the differences are what makes it a better tool for website mock-ups.

The best UI UX desingner you'll ever need

Reviewed on 2023/11/11

Pros

It has a clean and intuitive user interface making it easier for even beginners. XD offers collaboration tools such as sharing for review, commenting, and design specs, which facilitate communication between designers, stakeholders, and developers. Designers can create interactive prototypes and preview how their designs will function, providing a more realistic user experience.

Cons

While Adobe XD is generally user-friendly, there might still be a learning curve for individuals who are new to design tools or those transitioning from other design software. Some users have reported occasional performance issues, especially when working on complex and large projects. However, updates are regularly released to address such issues.

Having the software tied to an Adobe Subscription makes it difficult to share prototypes. They have to be updated constantly and relinked every time a change is made.

Pros

It is native to Adobe CC, so you get the advantages of having all your design tools syncing together.

Cons

Because it is native to Adobe CC, it is difficult to share files with clients who don't have the software. You can, though it isn't as easy as an internet based-tool like Figma.

Alternatives Considered

Webflow, Sketch and Figma

Reasons for Switching to Adobe XD

Some of these alternatives are direct competitors (Sketch, Figma), but when used in conjunction with a tool like Webflow, where I can actually implement static designs from XD, it is a good tool.
