Earlier, Adobe Creative Cloud didn’t have a tool or an application for designers on which they could create quick prototypes and get team feedback or send it to the client before creating the final UI design. Since designers were finding it difficult to design prototype layouts, Adobe has come up with a brand new product called Adobe Experience Design CC (Adobe XD). Adobe announced that they were developing a new interface design and prototyping tool named “Project Comet”. The first beta was for macOS as “Adobe Experience Design CC” to anyone who has an Adobe account. The next beta of Adobe XD was for Windows 10 on December 13, 2016. On October 18, 2017, the final product was launched.
Adobe XD is a relatively new product in Adobe Design Suite and is used to design prototypes for different platforms like web, mobile, tablet and others. It is a cross-platform application and can be used in windows as well as macOS. Adobe Experience Design also supports Photoshop and Illustrator files. Suppose, if you want to design some layouts in Photoshop or Illustrator and then want to open it in Adobe XD and create a prototype and share it, then yes, you can do it.
Some of the best features in Adobe Experience Design:-
Although Adobe XD is still relatively new, the reception has been terrific. Adobe XD is a wonderful application rolled into a single tool. In fact, Adobe XD is very minimal and easy to use once you know how.
While using Sketch you’ll need to install certain extensions and/or subscribe to a few third-party services in order to add any prototyping functionality, whereas Adobe XD offers these tools natively.
While Sketch is an amazing option for designing user interfaces, Adobe XD is the clear winner for those switching from other Adobe apps such as Photoshop or Fireworks.
