Axure review 2022

Nice tool for creating responsive apps and is very easy to use, suitable for medium and large enterprises. Highly recommend it

Pros

Best tool for creative wireframes which supports many integrations like Jira & Slack. Axure is pretty much better for prototyping which enormously helps to save time and enhances workflow with quality results.

It's easy to work with and provides a responsive drag & drop editing experience. The tool is very beginner-friendly with a good customer support service.

Cons

Pricing plans are too high. This doesn't always favor everyone especially individuals with low budgets.
I'm wondering why it's only available in English?
Does it mean, French users or any other user can't work with it? I look at it as a #1 handicap. developers should look back to it.

One of the strongest tool for dynamic prototyping

One tool for all your prototyping​ need, be it animation or a simple drop down.

Pros

These days you have dozens of tools available for prototyping but none of them are as strong as Axure, the usp here is dynamism. Whilst most of the prototyping tool lets you work with static screen, Axure allow you to make it dynamic without writing a single line of code. You can build a complete design system in Axure which is a​ one-time​ investment​ but goes a ​long way in saving time.

Cons

No mobile support yet, considering the complexity and logic it lets you handle not sure how possible is the ​mobile version.

Good Until It's Not

I use it daily. Mostly it works well. But when it doesn't, don't expect CS to help.

Pros

Very flexible for diverse concepts.

Cons

Not well tested prior to release. Tends to get buggy as the page gets more complex.

A great interactive prototyping tool for developers or designers with graphic design software...

Pros

I love that you can make FUNCTIONAL prototypes with this software! Being able to present a "working prototype" is a huge benefit of this tool. With the use of "behaviors" and "widgets", you can ensure that the stakeholders get a interactive demo BEFORE you start development!

I also love the fact that you can have "pages" that when published can mimic a real working website. The publisher feature of Axure allows you to share prototypes with clients or stakeholders and get feedback from an unique URL. There are so many pre-made widgets out there as well that can be imported for use right in the prototype, making it truly adaptable to development frameworks, like Google Material Design.

Cons

It was easy for me to get up and running using this software given my background and experience with Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator. I think without some background in those applications, this software may have a learning curve.

Also, it may have limitations when compared with web-based versions when it comes to portability of your source files.

The constant updates can be annoying to keep track of, as I often end up with multiple installations instead of a true upgrade, but that could be user error or lack of knowledge of proper Axure updating on my end.

I've been using Axure for creating high fidelity prototypes for 2+ years.

I'm able to visualize my ideas to my team. It's a crucial step in our design process.

Pros

I love that you can create high fidelity wires with full interactions. I'm capable of creating something that's fully interactive and looks like a complete website without ever having to write a line of code. It really helps me speak to my designs.

Cons

I wish there was a spec sheet to hand off to developers. Often when I hand over my wires, they have to replicate what I've created just by sight.
