Framer X is Awesome, but it's not ready

almost 2 years ago from Modou Lo, UI/UX Designer

    I agree that it has a lot of potential but where it stands right now, I don't see my team and I switching to Framer X. I didn't play around with the Beta but my colleagues did. We also had a demo from a rep at Framer X and asked a lot of questions. Long story short, we just felt that it didn't make sense to pay for Framer X when Figma offers much more for free. Framer X still doesn't have real time collaboration and browser based functionalities whereas Figma does. The main reason we were so excited for Framer X was it's integration to React code but from what we learned, it's not a seamless integration with production ready code. It still has to live in its own platform and then get ported over. We don't want to add yet another app for developers to download, we just want one app to rule them all for designers and developers.
