Adobe XD is a vector-based user experience design tool for web apps and mobile apps, developed and published by Adobe Inc. It is available for macOS and Windows, although there are versions for iOS and Android to help preview the result of work directly on mobile devices. XD supports website wireframing and creating simple, immersive, interactive click-through prototypes.
Adobe XD creates user interfaces for mobile and web apps. Many features in XD were previously either hard to use or non-existent in other Adobe applications like Illustrator or Photoshop.
It helps to create a grid of repeating items such as lists, and photo galleries.
Prototype and animation: Creates animated prototypes through linking artboards. These prototypes can be previewed on supported mobile devices.
XD supports and can open files from Illustrator, Photoshop, Photoshop Sketch, and After Effects. In addition to the Adobe Creative Cloud, XD can also connect to other tools and services such as Slack and Microsoft teams to collaborate. XD is also able to auto-adjust and move smoothly from macOS to Windows. For security, prototypes can be sent with password protection to ensure full disclosure.
Apps can be designed using voice commands. In addition, what users create for smart assistants can be previewed as well.
Users can create symbols to represent logos and buttons. Symbols can be used to drag and drop items on to artboards and organized them to be reused.
Responsive resize automatically adjusts and sizes pictures and other objects on the artboards. This allows the user to have their content automatically adjusted for different screens for different sized platforms such as mobile phones and PC.
XD is compatible with custom plugins that add additional features and uses. Plugins range from design to functionality, and automation and animation.
