Adobe Experience Design CC ( beta ) – Review
Adobe released its new tool for Mac named “Adobe Experience Design CC”. Today, we have tried the application and here are our thoughts about it.
What it is
It is a tool that allows you to design User Interfaces. That does not mean you can create a working application or operating system. It is just for design the application.
One of the first things that you will see in the app is the clear user interface. It has a great, simple ui which makes the app less complicated.
When you first open the app, you will love it until you realize how limited it is. Even though it is just the preview of the app ( for which only available on mac ), still it lacks a lot of basic tools that you will find on its competitors such as Sketch or Adobe Illustrator, but again it is very easy to use. I guess it lacks these features because Adobe wanted to make something more easier than Photoshop or Illustrator for the beginners.
As you can see in the picture below, there are Android Material Design, iOS and even Windows UI kits which makes it easer for you to design an app for these programs. Also, after you create an ui, you can preview it. But do not wait something like Sketch which even allows you to try your app on your iPhone.
Since it is the part of the creative cloud, you can expect to pay monthly, but since it is not the final version, there is no information about the price.
I liked the application, but it is very limited. If you are working as a professional, then it is not for you. I recommend you to try the application, but as I said it is very limited. However, if you actually see or even tried the Sketch or Adobe Illustrator, and found them complicated, then it is one of the best design apps for you.
Pros & Cons

It has a beautiful ui
