Figma out beats most competitive prototyping softwares in the market

5.0 11 months ago

Comments: It helps us with design prototyping and wireframing as per our project(s) needs. I find this software extremely effective and enthusiastic. In all circumstances, I will always recommend Figma to businesses, organizations, enterprises, and personnel.

Pros:

Figma is an amazing software for application prototyping. It has a high affinity for design visualization and idea portraiture.It supports the most popular fonts that we often use throughout our designs and has an advanced and rich user workspace. I like its responsiveness to media queries and the editor is duper fast.Figma helps us craft amazing prototypes and wireframes as per our project(s) requirements and also enables us to directly merge them with our favorite development tools and thus, creating a seamless development experience.Its design layouts are very cool and we can collaborate on our projects easily.

Cons:

I will say, Figma is not for beginners. Features are too overlayered. This makes it a little hard sometimes to properly figure out a specific feature and more to it, icons placements are not user-friendly

Great Prototyping Tool

5.0 4 weeks ago New

Comments: I've really enjoyed using Figma. As a previous user of both Axure and Adobe XD, it appeared to be relatively straightforward to switch over.

Pros:

Figma seems to get better at each incremental software release and is relatively straight forward to use.

Cons:

The downside is that your prototypes cannot be served offline, as you need to be connected to the internet to use it. This can be difficult for example using prototypes on location for film/tv.

Great Idea in Theory but Extremely Difficult to Use

3.0 2 months ago New

Pros:

The idea behind Figma is wonderful. It was made to help content and design teams work together in developing applications, instead of the two being siloed during the development process. Once learned, the commenting tools can help the two collaborate.

Cons:

While the idea behind Figma is wonderful, it's not user-friendly at all. To start, our company had dozens upon dozens of trainings on it for months, which was proof of how difficult this new software was. It's very difficult to use its basic tools, like viewing screens. But the biggest drawbacks for our team was keeping track of all the different versions of the documents being edited and finding particular items within a screen to edit. Many on our team wanted to go back to the tried-and-true Excel and Word copy decks for the ease of document version control and the search-and-find function. I think Figma has some kinks to work out, though the idea is great.

No other alternative is as good as Figma

4.0 3 months ago

Comments: Figma rocks for design – no matter the stage! It's super easy to use for basic sketches (low-fidelity wireframes) and powerful enough to build complex, high-quality apps. Basically, Figma is awesome for design from start to finish!

Pros:

I like the way that advancement is extremely simple in figma in light of the fact that the intelligent metatrails accessible in there and generally the modules caused my work to dispense more straightforward and Strong parts, auto formats and clearly tokenisation of plan framework. I also made my CV layout in it to make it look good.

Cons:

I will say, Figma is minimal hard to use for amateurs. Highlights are too overlayered. This makes it somewhat hard here and there to appropriately sort out a particular element and more to it, symbols situations are not easy to understand

Figma is the leading design platform for tech product driven businesses

5.0 last month New

Comments: Figma is used across our entire business for product design, prototyping, design and asset printing and more. It is the operating system we need to scale our design capabilities as we grow. I couldn't imagine us using another tool for design.

Pros:

Figma has so many excellent qualities but a particular value add for us was the ability to build a component library. This enables us to give the entire company access and turns them into designers since the components of the design have been pre-built. We create thousands of assets for clients so this enabled us to create a design system with infinite scale.

Cons:

It isn't the easiest tool to learn and there is certainly complexity that can be overwhelming with tools like Canva on the market.
