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.

Pros

What I like most about InVision is how easy it is to share and collaborate with important people within the organization.
The InVision app is an awesome mockup tool for designers to create mockups as you want. Easy to share and comment the designs with your coworkers.
Its super fast and allows you to create prototype form your design in minutes. The comment functionality is amazing to give rapid feedbacks.

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.

Cons

Importing artboards from sketch could sometimes be pain in the ass, it just wont sync with sketch.
You can't even import SVGS easily without jumping through hoops. I don't want to see a pixelated shrunk down version of my damn shit.
You have to really replace the whole screen which has poor effect while doing demos. No way to add comments for other team members to see.

Axure

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.

Axure

UX-oriented must have

Reviewed 8 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.

Axure

Critical to our design process.

Reviewed 5 years ago
Pros

It does everything I want it to do, and lets me set things up so that I'm not repeating myself. Amazing how much better the design process is with this app.

Cons

I'm sure I've only scratched the surface of what this software can do. Often times I will set things up, then learn there's a much easier/more organized way to do it and end up starting all over.

Axure

My favorite program to design UX

Reviewed 4 years ago
Pros

One of the most cool part of the programm is that you can see the result (in my case the app) on your smatphone in real time, complete with all the features that the UX needs.

Cons

Some features are hidden and conditions often do not have a clear application.

Axure RP 8 - still going strong

Reviewed 3 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.

InVision App

Great for high-level mock-up sharing and prototyping, but very rarely is it enough.

Reviewed 4 years ago
Pros

- Easy to use, generally speaking. - Has almost everything you need for UI design, unless you're getting into more complex designs. - Affordable. - Great team tools.

Cons

Limited. And maybe there are designers who will look at me like a crazy person when I say that. But if you've ever needed to do full interactive prototypes that feel closer to a real product, then InVision is like a hammer next to something like Axure, which is a nail gun.
