"Powerful Prototyping Solution"

What do you like best?

The ability to easily create pages and interactions using a familiar layout of libraries, pages and actions. These features allowed for the creation of a fully functional prototype, plus additional conditions can be applied for even more realistic scenario development within the prototype.

What do you dislike?

Certain library elements and menus, especially when using adaptive views are a bit buggy when exported as HTML but it is to be expected because the prototype is being built upon only front end languages and may not behave as perfectly as the fully developed application. Some other features and library items are not fully documented well, such as custom widgets. Hopefully further patches and updates will provide a solution to these minor issues.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This application can provide enough functionality to create very powerful application prototypes which would accommodate for solid insight towards the development of final applications. While some level of learning is required, it is very much worth it for any professional or organisation that requires such a solution.

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

I am using this software to provide UXD training for corporate Software Developers and Tertiary Level Students.

"Almost limitless possibilities for creating complex prototypes, and great for basic wireframes too."

What do you like best?

Our product requires quite complex prototyping, as it is too time consuming to iterate the actual product in many cases.

Axure provides a huge array of technical features that allows us to create those complex prototypes. By which I mean very particular functionality - the tools are flexible enough to create almost any behaviour, just by the fact that you can replicate programming logic (but you don't need to be a programmer!)

It's easy to achieve desired layouts and interactivity, you can nearly always replicate the intended design (even visually, if you need a realistic prototype rather than a wireframe).

Axure's sharing service is also incredibly useful; we use this to share among the team and to customers for testing.

What do you dislike?

The user interface is a bit dated, it works, it's usable but it's not exactly a pleasure to use. Some things could bit a bit slicker; it would be nice if the interactions panel was a bit less fussy, but to be honest I'm looking for faults.

Recommendations to others considering the product

There are quite a few prototyping tools on the market now that I have never used, so my review isn't a comparison with those other platforms. I think newer applications are more modern, but from what I know, nothing is as comprehensive as Axure in terms of functionality.

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

We use Axure to provide our product designers with a quick way to make functional prototypes (that they aren't able make using javascript etc) for user testing; therefore avoiding the need for developers to be involved.

It also gives us a way to share prototypes very easily for user testing and team/customer reviews.

Thanks for letting us know!

"One of the Most Powerful Prototyping Tool"

What do you like best?

I love conditionals and adding logic to my prototypes. Axure is one of the best tools and my go to when creating something as close to code as possible. I also love love love the ability to convert high fidelity prototypes into wireframes, or possibly even sketches. Axure comes with an awesome feature that allows you to change up the lines in the prototype to be more "squiggly" or look like something done with paper and pencil. This is extremely helpful when I get carried away and dive too deep into details and want to retract without starting over or losing my work.

What do you dislike?

I think the learning curve to Axure is a bit steep. But the community and support around the tool helped me not to hold onto that dislike for long. I also am not a fan of the lack of communication between Axure and Sketch. I think a lot of people are moving towards Sketch and not everyone likes Invision. So of the integration between Sketch and Axure were tighter, I'd be using the tool A LOT MORE!

Recommendations to others considering the product

This is definitely a nice tool to learn and have under your design belt. Although the integration with Sketch is not where it should be, it's still manageable when it comes to importing .svgs. If you're coming from a tool like Photoshop, you might have the patience to learn Axure, but warning in advance, it does not have the same shortcuts, etc. The support/community around Axure is great and there are some nice widgets that can help you get started! I'd more recommend for those into web design, verses mobile.

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

Axure saves time and resources. As mentioned above, this is my go to tool for creating prototypes as close to code as possible.

"Simple and fast!"

What do you like best?

If you are new to interface design this program will allow you to turn out Whatever you’re mind can come up with. Within reason. You will not be creating after effects like animations. But you will be able to design some amazing interfaces in no time at all.

What do you dislike?

There is always an issue with most software now. Too many ways to get to the same thing. From right climbing to drop down menus to icons to click on. Most companies are doing this now. It seems that 10 ways to get to the item is best. I don’t get it.

Recommendations to others considering the product

While you can do the same thing for screen layout in most design programs. This allows you to link, embed, build, change, modify etc. All so quickly. It almost seems funny.

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

Simply put. Rapid prototypes. This is the easiest way as of now for myself to display and provide clients with fast feedback.

"Best Wireframing Tool Available "

What do you like best?

The ability to create highly interactive content and elements in adaptive views, providing development teams the ability to visualize designs and functionality in hi-fidelity, guiding the overall production process.

What do you dislike?

In an ideal world, the responsive breakdown of elements would behave and function like that of a truly responsive browser window. Also, the coding of "if x than x" behaviors can be a little convoluted and cumbersome, however, it does allow for very precise interactions that other tools do not provide.

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

With Axure RP, we have overcome many of the process barriers that were plaguing the overall marketing > creative > development hand-off process. With Axure, we now have the ability to bring static mockups to life with hover states, click behaviors and rich text that can be showcased in live browser environments with the ability to collaborate and communicate across teams, all through the AxShare Cloud.

"Pretty Much Everything You Need, Some of What You Don't"

What do you like best?

You can make some very high level prototypes with Axure. You can make them as simple or as complex adn beautiful as you'd like. Discussing, collaborating, and sharing are made very easy. It is really nice that you can use it for other UX tasks like flowcharts and sitemaps - then you can link them all together.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes Axure can over do it and make make a task too complex just with the openness it allows and ability to take things so far. Some features, like custom widget styles, are good ideas but not executed well. Their support is not that good. I have attempted to contact them and posted in the forums to no avail.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Use the free trial and get a feel for it. There is definitely a learning curve!

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

The ability to make fast and accurate wireframes and high level prototypes is key. Also, sharing the prototypes with clients and other team members and receiving feedback is a must. The quality of our prototypes is quite amazing and clients and developers really appreciate it.
