What is Adobe XD?
Adobe XD is the software maker’s solution to designing digital products. It’s included in Creative Suite plans, so if you are already an Adobe user, the tool is waiting in your account for you to try.
Adobe XD is a vector-based design tool that you can use to make websites or apps from prototype to mockup to full-design stages. It works on Mac and Windows on your machine (unlike other options that can be dependent of the operating system or browser-based).
Despite being a relatively new option for designers, Adobe XD is growing in popularity quickly. This is probably mostly due to the fact that so many designers already use Adobe tools, making the learning curve not so steep.
