What’s hot in UX this week:
First impressions with Adobe Experience Design →
I’ve had a short time to design and prototype in Adobe’s new Experience Design app, the fruit of Project Comet. While Experience Design (Xd for short) has a lot of potential, it’s missing a great deal of features available in other prototyping apps such as Flinto or even Keynote. For Xd to succeed they need to include a lot more in version 1, and do this quickly.
