Axure RP Reviews
We have 1 review for Axure RP. The average overall ratings is 4.0 / 5 stars.
Overall Opinion: To this day, Axure RP remains the industry standard in terms of rapid prototyping and user experience software. The redesigned interface lends a modern feel and will help Axure remain a top choice among developers. Axure 8 also features a pen tool that can help users design custom vector shapes. While Axure allows users to create custom widgets, these widgets are built on templates that are found in Axure’s standard libraries. Unfortunately, Axure’s standard libraries are not nearly as comprehensive as they could be. This will force some users to either import or purchase external libraries to fill out the gaps left by Axure. A program like Mockplus, for instance, contains over 200 commonly used components. This may cost some developers time from either hunting down free libraries on the internet, or money from paying for libraries that they’ll need to make full use of Axure. One area where Axure is lacking is development for mobile devices. While Axure share allows user to test prototypes on their phones, Axure has poor compatibility support across various models. Axure also has an incredibly steep learning curve, but the trade off is that it’s highly effective at prototyping many different kinds of interactions. While more user friendly rapid prototyping software exists, that comes at the cost of being able to accomplish only a fraction of what a software like Axure can accomplish.
Pros: Designs powerful prototypes without coding Has been the industry standard for over a decade Still in development and has been given a modern facelift Feature rich interface has everything you’ll need Custom widgets
Cons: Steep learning curve More expensive than similar programs You may need to import external libraries as Axure’s internal library is not comprehensive
