Hi guys,

Just wanted to let you know that you can now preview, in real time, your #AdobeXD designs and prototypes, on iOS devices (iPhones and iPads) or Android phones (Android tablet support will land soon). Make changes to your design and see it reflected on all the devices you have connected. Add wires to your prototype and play with it to polish the experience, all within the same workflow.

View all the details here (blog post and video).

Please give it a try and let us know what you think. Be part of XD's journey on mobile devices, this is just the beginning.

Really looking forward to hearing your feedback!

    How long do you think it will be before this makes it out of 'preview'

    Edit: Also, is preview only available via USB? No plans for a wireless connection?

      I can confirm that we will be adding support for wireless connections for device preview.

      More news on our plans for Adobe XD at our annual MAX conference, Nov 2-4.

      Thanks, Andrew (Adobe XD team)

    I still don't know why there aren't layers.

      I'm sure they're trying to figure out a way to implement them so they make sense. Illustrator has one giant layer for every art board and Photoshop has a layer for each art board but neither UI is well implemented (Photoshop is close but collapsing art board groups all the time can be annoying).

        Layers are coming really soon - we've taken the time to create something familiar yet unique for the needs of UX designers. Look forward to getting your feedback on our approach.

        Thanks, Andrew (Adobe XD team)

          Maybe you'll have something that Illustrator and Photoshop can mimic because both could use a better multiple art board layer system.

    Will you have something similar for desktop? Or something similar to invision motion? http://blog.invisionapp.com/motion-prototype-animation/

    See you at Adobe MAX!

      That would be f'ing fantastic (as long as they use the After Effects timeline and not the Flash, nee Animate CC, timeline.
