Now you have another wireframing tool in your skill set, and 0:00 you know how to make interactive prototypes. 0:03 Let's reflect on the benefits and drawbacks of wireframing and Adobe XD. 0:06 My favorite aspects of this tool are, 0:11 it's familiar since the wireframe is already in a design program. 0:14 It's easy to polish it up into a mock up. 0:18 You don't have to recreate it. 0:21 The price, XD is an affordable option, and it's currently offered for free. 0:24 And if you're already subscribed to the Creative Cloud, 0:30 its full featured version is included in some plans. 0:33 It can sync wireframes to mobile devices, you can easily create interactive 0:36 prototypes and preview them on an iOS or Android device. 0:41 Collaboration is built in, getting feedback from your teammates is easy, and 0:48 there's no need to use external sharing tools. 0:53 My least favorite aspects are, it's easy to lose focus. 0:57 As a program that's capable of doing more than wireframing, 1:01 you may be tempted to perfect the wireframe. 1:04 Drag and droppable components aren't built in. 1:07 There aren't any built in icons and UI elements, so 1:10 it takes more effort to put together the components. 1:13 Fortunately though, there are wireframe kits for XD which solve this. 1:16 Check the teacher's notes for links. 1:21 Remember to make your own screens and iterate. 1:24 If you want inspiration, take a peek at the teacher's notes. 1:26 I included a list of ideas and 1:30 exercises to help you keep their creative ideas flowing. 1:32 If you have any questions, let me know or 1:36 post a question in the treehouse community. 1:38
