Adobe XD

The all-in-one UX solution for designing websites, mobile apps, & more. Adobe XD gives you everything you need to design and prototype websites, mobile apps, voice interactions, touchscreens, and more. It's the fastest way to go from the idea to a final solution.

Adobe XD's interface has two main tabs: Design, and Prototype. The Design tab features simple vector editor that you can use to create UI layouts. The Prototype tab is for connecting layouts together and previewing a design.

Pros

  • Pre-build canvas sizes (XD it offers you canvas sizes according to the devices you are designing)
  • UI kits of Apple iOS, Google's Material Design and Microsoft are available
  • Clean interface
  • Easy to fill UI with content (it's possible to drag image from anywhere, drop it over the object (rectangle or circular placeholder) in XD, and XD automatically applies mask over your image)
  • Easy to prototype layouts (link pages to each other and preview your prototype in the popup window)
  • Repeat grid feature (creating a list of items is simple with Repeat grid: create one and use repeat grid to duplicate that item vertically or horizontally)

Cons

  • Animating UI is difficult (compared to other tools)
  • No CSS export (there’s no way to extract CSS code from your design to simplify the work for developer)
  • Preview prototype live on your smartphone works only for Mac.
