Adobe XD is an on-premise UI and UX design tool that is used to design anything from applications to fully-developed websites by configuring layouts, components, effects, and more. It allows managers to store created assets in a cloud-based repository and share them with other team members if required.
Designers can include various elements to their designs such as animations, navigation menus, audio, custom passwords, and many more.
Adobe XD enables businesses to create interactions with the help of gaming controllers or keyboards and preview mobile prototypes on iOS and Android devices.
Users can integrate the solution with various third-party systems including Jira, Microsoft Teams, Zeplin, Slack, and more.

This is a really well made UI prototyping tool. Adobe has done quite a good job with this. The best part is that it’s completely free to use it, the only thing that you have to pay for is multiple published prototypes at a time. I’m okay with just one, and prefer to control my own files anyway. I really like that this is not browser-based, I hate that so many new design tools are browser based as they do not perform well and are generally buggy, plus they generally tie you into their system, you can’t control your own files. Worst, you can’t do anything offline. Native is absolutely the way to go for this sort of thing.
It’s an Adobe product so it’s more reliable and cross-compatible with other tools like Photoshop and Illustrator which we are using for years. The UI is very modern and simplistic so even a beginner can get hold of it easily and it’s a blessing for non-designers too. Earlier I was used to designing in Photoshop and doing my prototype and review on Invision but now with Adobe XD it’s just one tool that lets me design, prototype, share, and get feedback.
I like the powerful and easy to use features that was bundled with the software. It includes everything I need to design and setup wireframe as well as try out my design instantly without install any other component. The software is easy to use and learn, the user interface is straightforward and simple. If you are already a user from other software from Adobe, you will finds Adobe XD have a similar feels to the software you used.
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
