Powerful prototyping. Fewer tools. All part of Creative Cloud. Learn why designers choose Adobe XD vs. InVision for UI/UX design.

Why should I use Adobe XD vs. InVision?

Consolidate tools. Move faster.

InVision claims to connect your workflow, but instead, just breaks it up. Trying to keep projects in sync across Studio, InVision Cloud, Freehand, Inspect, and DSM is too much to juggle. Adobe XD combines the capabilities of multiple tools into one design, prototyping, animation, sharing, and developer handoff experience.

Consolidate tools. Move faster.

"Adobe XD saves hours by giving us quick and easy ways to send the prototypes for review."

Go further with Creative Cloud.

InVision is all on its own. XD works with your Creative Cloud subscription. Edit images in Photoshop, import graphics from Illustrator, animate in After Effects, and bring it all together in XD. Plus, you’ll have access to other Creative Cloud services like Adobe Fonts or Adobe Stock — all from the same account.

Motion. Animations. Interactions.

Go beyond static screens. Power-up prototypes with states, animations, micro-interactions, sound effects, and voice interactions. Skip simple hotspots and create prototypes that feel like the real thing. Export to After Effects to take animations even further.

Interaction. Animation. Motion.

Realistic prototypes for any experience.

InVision limits prototypes to desktop and mobile, but experience design goes far beyond. Use XD to prototype all types of experiences - websites, apps, voice, AR/VR, games, and so much more.

Realistic prototypes for any experience.

“Thanks to the rich prototyping that XD makes possible, we have been able to align with clients on exactly what they'd like to see.”

FAQ

When choosing between InVision vs. Adobe XD, consider the following benefits of XD as an InVision alternative:

 

1) XD combines design, prototyping, developer handoff, collaboration, and sharing into one design platform. InVision requires multiple products.

 

2) InVision often relies on other tools like Sketch, Photoshop, and Zeplin. XD is an all-in-one UI/UX design tool. XD offers more robust prototyping capabilities and allows you to prototype for all types of experiences - websites, mobile apps, voice, games, and more. InVision limits prototyping to web and mobile devices.

 

3) Unlike other InVision competitors, XD is part of Creative Cloud, which allows you to extend your workflow across other creative apps like Photoshop, Illustrator, and After Effects and share design assets between apps with Creative Cloud Libraries.

Adobe XD is an intuitive, easy-to-use UI/UX design tool for designers of all skill levels. InVision requires you to use multiple tools - each with their own learning curve - to accomplish the same workflows.
