Why should I use Adobe

XD vs. Figma?

Wonderfully easy to use.

All the tools you need without the complexity. Figma can feel complicated and difficult to navigate. XD lets you create without limits with a simple, intuitive interface.

Wonderfully easy to use.

"You can continue to iterate on the designs without affecting what has previously been shared, which is incredibly valuable."

Work the way you want.

Online or offline. In the cloud or on your machine. Solo or with your team. Figma relies on an internet connection and forces you to design out in the open. XD gives you complete flexibility to design however you want.

Work the way you want.

“We’ve been able to use Adobe XD to stack the deck in our favor and get buy-in.”
