Pros
Axure can be a beast but it's great for very large scale super detailed projects. If you need to easily tie requirements into your UX work, Axure is perfect for you.
Best tool for creative wireframes which supports many integrations like Jira & Slack.
I have been choosing among different solutions, but finally stick with Axure, because IMHO it has the best interface and the widest set of opportunities to implement actions.
Cons
The software requires much effort to create detailed prototypes, asking you to know a bit of coding logic to work with it. It's also terrible for UI design.
Also, sometimes it can be frustrating the way some of the simple interactions have to be built to work as the user expect.
Learning to use Axure is complicated. Mostly because of the ton of options, and partly because it is difficult to discover how the internal mechanics operate.

Axure review 2022

Reviewed 16 days ago

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.

Axure RP 8 - still going strong

Reviewed 2 years ago

I was trained on Sketch at the beginning of my career, and when I transitioned jobs, I argued for Sketch, since I wasn't familiar with Axure. Now that I have been using Axure for 2+ years, I don't think I'll ever go back to Sketch. Axure saves me time while allowing me to communicate design concepts and information architecture.

Pros

One of the best things about Axure is that you can write text within elements. In comparison, in Sketch, you need to add an additional text element. For low-mid fidelity wireframes, Axure is way more efficient than Sketch. The second best thing is how well balanced the features are- everything is there in one place. You got your creation covered (complex interactions included), you got the generation of a share link without needing to export the screens to another app, you can also collect feedback via the discussion panel. Widgets are customizable, there's plenty of user help available on the web regarding how to do various things... Axure is great for rapid prototyping.

Cons

Collaboration features are mostly non-existent, but that can be solved by storing the .rp file in a cloud, such as Google Drive Stream. I wish the widget names would save when pressing 'enter' on the keyboard instead of clicking out of the field, but that is a minor issue. In Sketch, I do still prefer the way they use symbols, in Axure the masters vs panels seem to be a bit convoluted.

I wouldn't buy it again

Reviewed 4 years ago

I used Axure several times, once for a smartwatch-project, the other times for smartphone app-projects. Then I switched to InVision. Why? Because it was painful to handle Axure. I don't like it and it feels like the developers didn't like what they do. And here's the problem. I want to love creating prototypes and I want to love the prototypes. But I can't love it all using Axure.

Pros

You can create good prototypes for many different devices with Axure and it will do as it should with routing, sound and functions. Through some lines of code it will offer you more if you like and if you find it.

Cons

The user interface is not the strength of Axure and the prototypes you get don't look good. Yes, it's a prototype, but a good look - somehow - or a good feeling would support to carry over what you want to create. Instead you get something that looks like it stands on legs made of wooden sticks. Crafting the prototypes isn't feeling fine and you can waste a lot of time because it doesn't feel natural.

UX-oriented must have

Reviewed 3 months ago
Pros

It provides the process side of designing instead of UI oriented solutions of similar type. The community around the app is very helpful.

Cons

It gets complicated in case of complex interactions, so you need to spend some time on particular solutions.

The Best Software for UX Work

Reviewed 3 years ago

Axure allows us to quickly and easily put together high fidelity prototypes to share within internal and external stakeholders. The functionality is powerful enough that our prototypes often get mistaken for full working builds of software.

Pros

- Extremely powerful prototyping toolset - All the "fit and finish" features you need from Illustrator or Sketch

Cons

- Team and cloud functionality needs more features - Documentation and customer support isn't always helpful
