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.

Wire-framing

Reviewed 5 years ago
Pros

It is most easy tool to create prototypes both functional and conceptual. A user can create HTML prototypes with this tool. It is very simple to use and it has inbuilt codes which will run the HTML functionality.

Cons

In this too, Image cropping is difficult.

If you want to make their jaws drop when you say "no, this is just a prototype," use Axure!

Faster feature implementation

Pros

Axure makes interactive prototypes so easy, and has saved us millions of rounds of back-and-forth for people who "need to see the whole picture" or "feel the workflow end-to-end" before they can give feedback. There is not a substitute out there (everything else just creates hotspots and links). The support team and training materials are also awesome. This tool makes me so happy and makes me look professional as a UX designer. I've used it for everything -- from workflows to high-fidelity user-facing usability tests.

Cons

Axure is not a traditional design tool to replace high-fidelity photoshop mockups or sketch vector assets. Its implementation of master widgets do some of the things a designer might need, but it is still not the same as what you get with a final-asset tool that traditional designers would use. The mobile-responsive flow is also a little wonky sometimes. There are breakpoints you can design for but not fluid design states.

Great tools - Hard to Find

Reviewed 5 years ago

Overall, I think the Axure needs to introduce new UI to make it a bit more user friendly to use, especially for people that are considering using it for the first time. The tools are there, they are just hard to find.

Pros

Axure is great for wireframing. I've tried so many different tools for wireframing, but the built in components in the library are a huge plus. This has made wireframing and user flows seamlessly fast. I don't like spending too much time on this phase because its always subject to change, so going back and revisitng

Cons

The user interface is very hard to use and there is a big learning curve. The interface itself feels a bit outdated, and the light theme and grey tones makes it difficult to look at. The array of tools available are great, but I find myself having a harder time narrowing down an action, like linking different components to each other, because it's visually hard to find.

Wonderful tool to wireframe

Reviewed 6 years ago
Pros

I enjoy how intuitive it is to start creating right away. I use Axure to create wireframes and prototypes of applications. Additionally, when I find myself not understanding how the software works, I reference the online materials provided and am able to quickly resolve my issues. Axure provides wonderful documentation and tutorials for beginners, which really led to my understanding of the software and its capabilities. One of my favorite features include being able to comment on the pages and specific elements of the prototype. Another one would be being able to share a prototype through a link, especially being able to put a password on it so only people that I want to access it are able to. I highly recommend Axure for those looking to create mockups and prototypes.

Cons

Something that would really help me create prototypes faster would be providing more templates or drag and drop options. An example of something that would help my line of work is having drag and drop options to make prototypes for mobile apps. Some of the elements might be just having cell phone bodies, or popular cell phone UI buttons and widgets ( ie. back buttons on either iPhone or Android). Axure allows me to create nice prototypes from scratch but I would enjoy being able to use already made elements.

High quality tool

Reviewed 5 years ago
Pros

It's fairly simple, even for beginners, to create a great looking and full featured prototype of a project.

Cons

In the beginning, the UI didn't seem to be the most fluid or user-friendly but you quickly learn your way around.
