    As if the tool has any bearing on the final output. I'm going to stick with Axure 8 + Sketch + Atom , not because if this or that, but because Adobe do not deserve my attention after years of charging shit loads and then finally vomiting this utter nonsense!

    Frankly, when speaking about tools, most of you omit Axure... and Axure is by far the better and most powerful of the lot. Has absolutely anything one could desire and it's been around for years... Compared to Axure, this is amateurish... End of rant!

        It's the year where everyone calls themselves UX designer having learned a new, trendy, hipster software.

        I do real UX, for real massive clients and Axure is by far the best of the lot. You can keep on with Invision, XD or other design tools, but please, enlighten me...

          Apt username at least.

          Agreed, we use Axure as our wireframing/prototyping tool in my office because we have very large clients with very detailed, heavily interactive internal web applications and nothing comes close to Axure when it comes to showing functional interactions in prototypes. Only downside is a I have to constantly remind clients that it is just a prototype and not a fully functional website because it works so well.

            Thank you, Eric!

            Same happens to me, constantly having to remind them that the actual work still needs to be done, and that speaks a lot about the quality of Axure's output.

            If you also throw the specifications, it becomes a must tool for real work... dribbblers can keep their framers and zeplins...

        I'm so confused by your comment. Axure is probably the most useful prototyping tool available. I could easily do my job with just Axure and Sketch.

          Everyone should use the tools that fit their work process. But for me it is much quicker to do low fidelity prototypes in Sketch and Marvel/Invision (+ maybe something like Principle) and then start coding immediately

      Agreed. Axure is too often overlooked. Or course it does have its rough spots but if I could only take one tool into battle Axure would be it.

      Why is Azure so good?

      I quite like XD, but cannot see where it would fit into my workflow. I use omnigraffle and HTML for wireframes and prototypes.

      Personally I can't stand the interface of Axure, and most of the output makes me groan. But some people can make it sing.

      XD, at the moment anyway, just doesn't offer enough.

      In your workflow, I guess it could replace sketch and Atom, but so far it doesn't have the chops.

      For me, I guess it could replace Omnigraffle, but again, so far it doesn't have the chops.

      Maybe when it is properly released.
