The Best Software for UX Work
Comments: Axure allows us to quickly and easily put together high fidelity prototypes to share within internal and external stakeholders. The functionality is powerful enough that our prototypes often get mistaken for full working builds of software.
- Extremely powerful prototyping toolset
- All the "fit and finish" features you need from Illustrator or Sketch
- Team and cloud functionality needs more features
- Documentation and customer support isn't always helpful

One of the strongest tool for dynamic prototyping
Comments: One tool for all your prototyping need, be it animation or a simple drop down.
Pros: These days you have dozens of tools available for prototyping but none of them are as strong as Axure, the usp here is dynamism. Whilst most of the prototyping tool lets you work with static screen, Axure allow you to make it dynamic without writing a single line of code. You can build a complete design system in Axure which is a one-time investment but goes a long way in saving time.
Cons: No mobile support yet, considering the complexity and logic it lets you handle not sure how possible is the mobile version.

A great interactive prototyping tool for developers or designers with graphic design software exp.
Pros: I love that you can make FUNCTIONAL prototypes with this software! Being able to present a "working prototype" is a huge benefit of this tool. With the use of "behaviors" and "widgets", you can ensure that the stakeholders get a interactive demo BEFORE you start development! I also love the fact that you can have "pages" that when published can mimic a real working website. The publisher feature of Axure allows you to share prototypes with clients or stakeholders and get feedback from an unique URL. There are so many pre-made widgets out there as well that can be imported for use right in the prototype, making it truly adaptable to development frameworks, like Google Material Design.
Cons: It was easy for me to get up and running using this software given my background and experience with Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator. I think without some background in those applications, this software may have a learning curve. Also, it may have limitations when compared with web-based versions when it comes to portability of your source files. The constant updates can be annoying to keep track of, as I often end up with multiple installations instead of a true upgrade, but that could be user error or lack of knowledge of proper Axure updating on my end.

Best wireframing & prototyping tool
Comments: Great tool! Best wireframe scribbling, easy and very complex prototyping. Amazing for client workshops!
Pros: How easy it is to scribble with down in a few seconds AND how perfectly the prototypes work: have never seen such complexity in any other prototyping tool
Cons: Might be the image axure has: since it is very old. And the Tutorials - would be lovely to have good video's instead of mere text.

I wouldn't buy it again
Comments: 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.
