XD lacks big time in certain aspects.  Figma feels like scratching my face with my foot, the work flow sucks and is slow, XD is a thousand times better in that regard.

However, XD sucks from the developer's point of view.

 

Why isn't Adobe trying to improve the developer's work flow, so we can all forget about Figma? Because Figma is becoming more and more popular, I have clients who don't wanna hear about XD.

Hi Nawneet,

I'm a designer, not a developer, but mostly all of the developers I worked with prefer Figma. But as a design tool, in my opinion, Figma sucks. So if XD could tackle the problems that the developers are faceing, that would make XD the preferred app for both designers and developers.

 

Right now many companies are moving away from XD, like there are literally clients and developers who don't wanna hear about XD.

 

That's why I started using Figma as well, they actually refuse to work with someone who doesn't use Figma. In the not very distant past, it really didn't matter what you used, clients didn't really care. Nowadays most of them specifically want Figma.

 

I'm afraid that if Adobe doesn't do something soon, XD will have Sketch's fate. I really hope not, I love XD, even though I hate its bugs, but as far as work flow and UX, XD is amazing compared to Figma.

 

Cheers,

Chrus

XD's share links have tools for developers similar to Figma. I think what you're seeing is simply personal preference of one app over another, not because XD is specifically lacking features for developers. Developers often prefer everything in one format. For years that was Photoshop files even as better apps like Sketch, etc first came onto the market. Now Sketch, XD, and Figma are all battling for the hearts and minds of designers and developers.

I'm not arguing, I'm just saying what the developers are telling me. As a collaboration tool, Figma is faster. As a design tool, XD is faster. Use Figma with your team and you'll see that there are huge differences.

 

I'm just saying, please copy Figma's collaborative features and win. I HATE FIGMA WITH A PASSION!
