"A fluid, beautiful program for creating app mockups"

What do you like best?

I love how intuitive the program is, and how simple it is to create beautiful app mockups in seconds. It's also a perfect alternative to macOS's Sketch for Windows devices, and it even fits into the Adobe Ecosystem!

What do you dislike?

I don't like that the macOS version of Adobe XD is updated with features faster than it's Windows counterpart. This leads to a bit of a disappointment when you rush to try out a new feature and you can't because it's only available for those using the macOS version.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Instead of looking up a ton of tutorials, open up a project and play around with the available tools. Because Adobe XD is a relatively new program, there's not that many tools to use, which is why playing around with it is going to do a lot more for you than video tutorials.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I'm able to create beautiful app mockups quickly on my Windows PC, without needing to have a Mac to use Sketch. Although there are other apps for Windows devices that allow you to create mockups, the fact that this program fits into the Adobe ecosystem makes it much better than anything else.

"Good Cross Platform design Tool"

What do you like best?

Adobe XD works across windows and mac and comes with adobe suite. That means that designers I outsource to can get and use XD affordably and I can still use it in my workflow. It is also a great looking design tool compared to Adobe's past product. Very user friendly, like they actually had modern designers working on it. Very much appreciate that!

What do you dislike?

I primarily use Sketch and while I love testing out and using new tools like XD and Studio the thing that keeps Sketch my primary design tool is the plugins. I can do just about everything I need in Sketch thanks to the plug in family, which is still lacking in tools like XD.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Keep waiting on it, it's improving rapidly.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Getting design work from across the globe even from people without macs so that the design output is still high quality, quick turnaround, and affordable.

What Prototyping solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"Handy Tool for Non UI/UX Designers"

What do you like best?

 The design tools are familiar. I can quickly figure out all how to use it without going through a bunch of tutorial videos. The program itself is light and opens fast. It still preforms quite well when having a large number of artboards. XD is fully integrated with other Adobe’s programs. Just like how you use PS, AI and ID, you can copy&paste elements directly from other programs into XD.

What do you dislike?

You need adobe CC to view or edit the project files. No way to export single element as vector to Illustrator. There is no real image editing tools, you will need other programs to edit then import to XD. There is no layer feature, so it's not handy if you want to select multiple ungrouped elements.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Although XD is missing some of the core features over Sketch, it's more like a mix of basic Sketch and invision. It's a great toll for those who just want to create simple prototypes and share with others as quickly as possible.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I used Adobe XD for Company website rebranding project. Because we didn't have UI/UX designer in the team at the moment, so I had taken over the wireframe task. Compare to Sketch, Adobe XD was easier to get started for people who don't have UI/UX experience. It saved me a lot of time.

"Design your app interface"

What do you like best?

I discovered Adobe XD with pleasure. Previously, when I had to design the interface for an app, I used only Illustrator, but obviously with limits. Now with XD everything is easier, I can add interactivity between the screens and offer a complete prototype to my customers, even publishing on an online link.

What do you dislike?

XD can only improve. For example, it does not allow the insertion of videos or hmtl codes, or even animated gifs. It would also be intriguing to include slideshows or gallery simulations to make sure that the prototype is more and more faithful to how the app will be.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is a software that can not miss for a UI / UX designer who in everyday life designs interfaces for applications or websites. It is easy to use but effective and professional, with excellent compatibility with Illustrator and Photoshop.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have created different interfaces for applications or even for websites, offering a more complete view to the customer, publishing online the interactive prototype.

"Excellent program for app developers"

What do you like best?

The positive parts of this program are numerous. Its ease makes the development of app interfaces very fast. Great to show the customer all the features of an app still in development. I recommend using the software to all website developers or smartphone apps, above all for those who have to convince the customer by making a real use of the project. The ease of use. after exporting the files, the customer can try the app or website.

What do you dislike?

The negative parts are the limited possibility of total customization of the entire interface. Often the prgram has block monitors, and it is impossible to continue the work. With very large and elaborate projects the software starts to slow down or there are no problems with exporting XD files. Sometimes collaboration with other adobe programs is not perfect

Recommendations to others considering the product

I recommend using the software to all website developers or smartphone apps. Above all for those who have to convince the customer by making a real use of the project

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The benefits obtained with adobe xd are directly related to the relationship with the customer. The ease of use. after the export of the files, it means that the client can try out the real use of the project with the hand, making, if necessary, the modifications necessary for the realization of the project. The direction is right but include the ability to program the app with a system similar to that used by muse

"UI / UX Design for web and devices"

What do you like best?

Software that was missing from Adobe, it integrates seamlessly with Illustrator and Photoshop and allows you to create an entire user interface project with the creation of a final interactive prototype, which can be easily viewed on your smartphone thanks to the Cloud and the possibility to connect the device via USB.

What do you dislike?

There are still some tools that allow the possibility to insert pull-down menus, sliders, galleries, which can give added value to the interactive prototype realized and shown to the customer.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Surely the best software to create interactive prototypes of applications, also for simplicity and for the ability to integrate with other Adobe software, such as Illustrator and Photoshop.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have created several wireframes and prototypes for mobile applications, to be shown to my clients thanks to online publication. The results were professional and the customers appreciated.

"Design prototypes for apps"

What do you like best?

Very simple software, allows with a few tools to create wireframes and prototypes especially for smartphone and tablet applications, with the ability to include interactivity on screens and buttons to provide a complete user experience.

What do you dislike?

In the future it would be useful to have additional functions, such as greater interactions, for example including the touch gestures, and offering the possibility of integrating videos or slideshows.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I think it's the best software of its kind, great for designers who often make wireframes and prototypes for screens, especially because it integrates seamlessly with Illustrator and Photoshop.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have created several prototypes of applications or mobile versions of websites for my clients, then sharing the work through links, all in a very professional way

"Some issues, but not a bad experience overall"

What do you like best?

-- works nicely with photoshop

-- easy to use, and cool usability

-- comes with adobe suite package... no additional costs

What do you dislike?

-- currently prototypes are not working in chrome ( After contacting Adobe and having an extended conversation, it sounds like it may be an issue with chrome that hopefully they will figure out eventually. Obviously this is a major problem given that chrome is one of the most used browsers in the world.)

-- some of the tools seem to have different symbols in the tools panel than in other Adobe products

Recommendations to others considering the product

Definitely worth trying out and highly considering. Knowing Adobe, they will stay on top of the browser changes and this product will be good to go in no time. The change in Chrome is the only hold up that I see so far.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

One of the main benefits is the transition from design software to prototyping.

"Adobe XD falls short for high-fidelity prototyping on Windows"

What do you like best?

The ability to create a grid quickly is nice, and I like the ability to link artboards together in my prototype (instead of the way some prototyping tools do it by making you create separate screens and not linking them together ~visually~)

What do you dislike?

To use any of the UI dev kits (or anything that you'd make on your own), you have to copy them from a whole different XD project - there's no ability to save UI components and drag-and-drop them in from a sidebar. Also, I know the Design Specs feature is in beta, but it's very limited as well.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Be aware of the limitations compared to other prototyping tools on the market before you commit to it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use XD for creating high-fidelity prototypes for proposed software features & updates - the UX team passes these prototypes off to our engineers for development.

"Quick and easy prototyping for everyone"

What do you like best?

Adobe XD is really handy and easy to use, unlike its other products. Coming from Illustrator or Photoshop I swiftly was able to navigate through XD as its user interface felt intuitive and fluid. Little things like copying and pasting results in the copied element appearing on the same spot and grids and measurements help create pixel perfect mockups, yet with enough flexibility and speed for low fidelity mockups.

What do you dislike?

Lack of design specs export locally (Internet and CC is required to do that) advanced prototyping animations are missing (only artboards animate, not individual layers). Compatibility with other software like Sketch is lacking and using the layer panel needs a bit of a different approach from other Adobe products.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Worth mentoring other colleagues dependent on this work as the software is so easy to use. I work with developers and integrating XD into their workflow has saved both of us time.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Designing interfaces and visual experiences for various devices has never been so fast. While web development has been a thing for Photoshop historically, XD speeds up this process immensely. Sharing and export tools allow to share your designs easily with others, even if they are not familiar with XD

"The best software for prototyping"

What do you like best?

Adobe XD makes it incredibly easy to mock up a pixel perfect concept. It is much better than some similar tools, which at best give you bare bones wireframes.

What do you dislike?

Even though it is just a prototyping tool, it could be better if it gave you the ability to seamlessly transfer what you design into usable code.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Try it out

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The biggest benefit is how extremely fast Adobe XD is compared with other prototyping tools. I'm able to create multiple concepts in the amount of time it would take to create one concept with a similar tool.

"Awesome for UI, UX and simple/flat designs"

What do you like best?

The usability - it has a lower learning curve than Illustrator and Photoshop, but is still really powerful for anything from concepts, wireframes, mockups, and full designs.

What do you dislike?

The interface is a little bit Mac-y. But maybe that's a good thing? I kind of miss the Adobe-ness of it, but that's a small piece of the whole thing.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Awesome for concepting, wire-framing, and flatter designs. UX and UI elements would be a great use case for this. Super easy exporting for SVGs, which is brownie points for the devs using it to cut up designs (ahem, me).

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Ease of wire framing and exporting SVGs. Much (by that I mean, VERY much) smaller file sizes compared to Photoshop. The smaller file sizes mean that they open much faster and navigating around them is much quicker.

"Fastest design tool"

What do you like best?

XD is the fastest design tool and its deliberately designed that way by omitting unwanted features.

What do you dislike?

Very slow development cycle. Essential features take a long time to get implemented. Windows users need to be taken seriously (live preview still missing)

Recommendations to others considering the product

You will find some essential features are missing, especially when coming from other software, but stick to it and you will get used to it. I think this product is ready for production level projects.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Provides a very quick way to transform ideas into clickable prototypes. The design process thereafter is also quick.

"Good for Everything"

What do you like best?

You can sign, redact, edit, create, and move pages to the correct order. Plus bates stamping! Electronic signing and tracking said signing is a great help too for people not directly in front of you.

What do you dislike?

That the original adobe does not have some of these features and while it will allow for electronic signing; its not nearly as complete as using this version.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Always save versions of your living document. Usually it will name them for you as a different version to writ over but I always save an original, working and then final copy.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Scanning documents from clients and putting them in date order on the computer and not manually. Bates stamping. Cleaning up documents with extra ink on them to make for a cleaner printed page.

"Doesn't stack up to Sketch."

What do you like best?

I can't say that there is anything I like about XD.

What do you dislike?

Symbols aren't as powerful as they are in Sketch. You can't do overrides, nested symbols, etc. The vector drawing tools are not as powerful. Even just selecting multiple elements in different groups are not as convenient as they are in Sketch.

The whole supposed advantage of XD is that you can do everything in one platform: design, prototype, and create design specs. But each of those respective tools aren't as good as the alternatives out there, so we find ourselves using Proto.io, and Zeplin anyways, negating any potential advantage to using XD.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It's not as powerful as the other options out there.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have an Adobe CC license already, so it saves money for us to use XD.

"Surprisingly user friendly (compared to other Adobe products)"

What do you like best?

I was able to get up and running without tutorials or guides (which is unusual for the typical Adobe product). The user interface is simple - overall I like it.

What do you dislike?

If you're a "pro" with Photoshop, Illustrator, Premiere, and other Adobe products, this is a bit different - it has fewer features but a much simpler user experience. If you're a "power user", there are probably other [more sophisticated] tools for you.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Great for getting up and running quickly and small layout/design/planning work. If you're a power user looking for sophisticated features, look elsewhere.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It's great for quickly drawing something (user interface elements for web and mobile apps) and planning layout / colours / etc.

"User Experience Design Made Easy"

What do you like best?

I love the wide range of tools and presets at your disposal that makes creating wireframes a walk in a park. Having the ability to easily create interactive prototypes to show how your wireframes all connect between webpages is awesome. Even just on starting your first project you can choose from various canvas sizes according to the devices you are designing for which makes your life a lot more easier for just having a starting point.

The User Interface for Adobe XD is very clean and makes finding relevant tools extremely easy.

What do you dislike?

I don't like how the panning and zooming between Art-boards work. It can become a bit overwhelming when working with multiple art-boards when trying to see each art-board at full screen. I also don't like the fact that there is no CSS export which makes it a bit of a pain when coding/building the site. This to me is strange simply because Photoshop has this capability.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are familiar with other Adobe products such as Photoshop or Illustrator then you will see many similarities between Adobe XD and those products. With that being said not everything works exactly the same and therefore there will be small annoyances with panning and various shortcuts that will take a bit of getting use to.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Having the privilege of working on many web projects, softwares like Adobe XD are really essential for designing the user flow journey of the overall site. With the simplistic usability of the software allows you to mock up the most complex site with high level functionality.

"Beautiful prototypes, but limited functions."

What do you like best?

The prototypes you can create with Adobe XD are beautiful, and XD works seamlessly with other Adobe programs. Vector items from Illustrator can easily be transferred, such as logos. Additionally, the group and copy features are easy to work with.

What do you dislike?

There is no scrolling feature that works within shapes. I vertical and horizontal scrolling option is necessary. Also there is no hover feature, making it hard to design website menus.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This program is better for people who need very basic prototypes.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am able to show my clients essentially what my web and mobile designs would look like, minus some of the functionality. I also can record a video clicking through the prototypes.

"Great software but missing some features"

What do you like best?

Really like the compatibility with other adobe products. Easy to use, features limited to the most necessary ones.

Prototyping in real time is great

What do you dislike?

i wish there were rules. its pretty hard to align the elements without them. it'd be great to be able to connect it to InVision app too. Also, cant zoom into the project I share with other people.

Recommendations to others considering the product

you might want to switch to Adobe XD if you dont like working in sketch.

"A great tool that will hopefully continue improving."

What do you like best?

The ease of use, and the ability to quickly prototype (whether its lo- or mid-fi to some hi-fi). Even more-so, the ability to share live links with clients or colleagues at (literally) the click of a button. XD was really easy to learn how to use given my knowledge with other Adobe programs working with the awesome tutorials XD has already waiting for you when you open the program.

What do you dislike?

The transitions and lack of animations in-between interactions is kind of a let-down. This causes the prototypes to be fairly rudimentary and doesn't allow for a full explanation of how some elements interact with each other, and what all can be linked. It's capabilities like this that put other programs like Axure and Invision way ahead of Adobe, even with Adobe's clean UI.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Take the time to review the tutorials and see just how you are able to take advantage of what XD has to offer. It doesn't have many of the editing capabilities you may be used to in Illustrator, but the cross-program compatibility is great and super easy to use.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have incorporated this into our entire web design process, and have begun teaching our marketing department how to use XD to make quick changes in order to maximize efficiency. This is especially useful when talking with our developers because we are able to link both the working mock-up as well as design elements to help better explain what we are looking for in an end product.

"Great software but not perfect"

What do you like best?

The ease of use for Adobe XD is what makes it great.

What do you dislike?

Exporting single design assets can be a pain and doesn't allow certain file formats.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This is a great product if you are looking for a quick and reliable UI design tool that can assist you in any project. The price is a little high but if you add all of the Adobe suite it is great that this tool is included. It never started off as a big selling feature for my purchase of Adobe but it has proved to be a very useful tool.

"Clean and Simple Interface"

What do you like best?

This software is available with the Adobe Creative Cloud and has a standard menu commands like other Adobe products. I like how you can preview the project on mobile apps if you want to see it on your phone or on your PC screen. It is a very useful design and prototyping tool for designing websites and application interfaces.

What do you dislike?

There are some downfalls with this software, especially sharing projects with developers since it doesn't create CSS. It can also be a bit buggy from time to time.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you already have the Adobe Creative Cloud, you should definitely download Adobe XD because it is included and see all the possibilities with this software!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Adobe XD has allowed me to build interactive prototypes and gather feedback from teammates. The feedback/comment section is one of my favorites because I can add comments on the go as I gain more feedback from different reviewers. It is a powerful product and simple to use!

What do you like best?

Part of the Adobe CC and designed with the user in mind to save time creating, making changes and sharing with the team for feedback.

What do you dislike?

Adobe seemed to come late to the party with the XD product. I wish they'd done so a few years earlier.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are already an Adobe CC customer ditch your other UX/UI prototyping tools and start using XD. It's already in your arsenal and ready for use. The free tutorials are amazing to get you started and keep you moving forward.

"Great Potential for XD in the Future"

What do you like best?

The grid is really easy to use and the guides are more intuitive than those in Illustrator when it comes to aligning and spacing objects. It's also great being able to mockup the flow between pages

What do you dislike?

There are a lot of features that I'm used to in Illustrator that I wish carried over to XD. It's more difficult to edit text (I wish there were more options like auto spacing, switching to all caps, etc.), more challenging to build shapes and mask images, etc.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I need to use XD and Illustrator in tandem because I can't create or edit graphics in XD alone. It's helpful to combine all my assets in the CC library to make the transitions more seamless.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It's great for building quick prototypes and figuring out apps and websites from a front-end perspective.

"Great prototyping and simple design tool"

What do you like best?

Not being a designer by any means, Adobe XD allows me to visually prototype ideas and projects to transfer to my team, as well as create simple graphical layouts for promotional material.

Our product development team relies on XD for product design and prototyping.

What do you dislike?

The curve function is a bit tough, as well as the masking function. Would love a simple image crop tool.

What do you like best?

Easy to use, it has many features that make it different from others, such as the effects of transitions between one screen and another.

What do you dislike?

It would be great to be able to load previews on your own domain. For now you can not insert videos or embed html code.

"I really enjoyed using XD"

What do you like best?

It was very simple to understand. I initially tried using Sketch and it was just too overwhelming for what I was trying to accomplish. I loved that you could 'link' between designs.

What do you dislike?

I wish you could add a couple more elements or effects.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I think if you're looking for a software to help layout wireframes and show how pages will interact, you'll love this software. It doesn't seem to have a lot of bells and whistles when compared to programs like Sketch, but I preferred that. It made it easier to use.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It helps layout the wireframes for projects so that people have a visual to reference. You can find obstacles before they happen because you're really planning ahead.

"XD for prototyping"

What do you like best?

As a user experience designer, I was using products like invision to help with click through prototyping. The problem with this was that it didn't sync up with other adobe products. I like that XD easily transfers files from illustrator.

What do you dislike?

I think the capabilities for designing are lacking a little. It would be nice to have more design tools, like illustrator but maybe not as fleshed out.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would only recommend this if you are already using other Adobe products, I couldn't imagine it being easy to transfer files from other programs to XD, Adobe doesn't usually like that.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

click through prototyping for user testing, prototyping user pathways to show upper management and teammates, viewing on the phone

"Perfect tool for realistic prototypes"

What do you like best?

Honestly, one of my favorite features is being able to lock a certain part of an art board, which allows me to seamlessly move text/images without the locked portion moving.

What do you dislike?

I don't like that I still haven't been able to crop an image. It's not intuitive to crop an image in Adobe XD, but it should be something that is common sense.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This is a great tool for prototyping in product and marketing. I'd recommend watching a few training videos beforehand, but it's pretty intuitive once you get started.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

This tool has allowed me to create more realistic prototypes for my team, which reduces miscommunication and makes sure requirements are clear from the beginning.

Adobe XD is a very fast, very easy prototyping tool that allows me to really quickly test interactions and layouts.

It doesn't integrate as well with Sketch as I would like- that, and there are some limitations with the hotspots/interactions

If you use Adobe tools for your UX design, I'd really take a close look at Adobe XD.

What do you like best?

As someone with no experience in app design, I was able to open the software and get right to it.

While I was able to quickly build the visualization of the app, when it came time to add functionality I realized XD wasn't useful for that.
