Adobe announced the release of a brand new version of Experience Design (XD). A new tool for UX design and quick prototyping. Formerly known as "Project Comet", after a year of gathering ideas and research, here we have another great tool for mobile and web development.

Adobe XD is made for fast, fluid UX design with innovative tools that eliminate speed bumps and deliver breakthrough performance. Switch from design to prototype in a single click. Quickly create wireframes and visual designs, preview changes in real time, and share prototypes with your team for instant feedback. And it's just the beginning. We're adding new features every month.

You can start a new design for Mobile, Tablet, Desktop or a custom size canvas. It also comes with Apply iOS, Google Material and Microsoft Windows UI Kits to help you speed up the prototyping process and to able to test the new flow quickly.

If you used Sketch before, the workspace for Adobe XD is pretty similar. You can see the overview of all your design when you zoom out.

Interaction and Preview

You can define the interaction between design. You can add animations and transitions to your design immediately to experience your UX design straight away.

If you already have an Adobe ID, you can download the preview version today. Full version will be available later this year for all the Creative Cloud subscribers. For serious users you should consider getting your Adobe certification from a company such as The Knowledge Academy, as some employers may see this certification as a bonus when looking for designers.
