Best design tool for collaborative work
Kommentare: If there is more than one designer in your team who have to collaborate on the same project, there is no better time to stay in sync and work on the same screens at the same time.
- Collaborative work in Real-Time
- Projects instead of files
- Intuitive interface
- Software speed
- Projects sharing with reviewers
- Free plan is enough for small teams
- Not too many plug-ins (Plug-Ins are quite new feature in Figma and the library is growing!)
- Custom fonts are not supported

Kommentare: Overall experience is just amazing.
Vorteile: Everything is just amazing. This is one of those softwares where you just enjoy working with. Easy to use... self intuitive and comes very natural. Zero learning curve. Best feature is overlay transition when creating prototypes. Couldn't find this in any other software.
Nachteile: Only one feature that I'm missing is to replace an instance of component for any other component. There's something similar but not exactly what I'd like to see.

Vorteile: Collaborating with teammates, SHARED LIBRARIES, ease in creating a design system, real time feedback, prototyping, intuitiveness, non-designers can open in browser, the list goes on and on. Honestly, I love using it and enjoy creating in it. I first tested it out to decide if I wanted to switch from another program I was using, it took about a day of using to completely be on board and start using Figma primarily.
Nachteile: My biggest shortcoming with Figma is that I can't access files when not online. Couple use cases: 1, I've been on flights and don't have wifi. 2, My neighborhood's power was down so no wifi at home and no wifi in the surrounding area.

My favorite tool for design today.
Kommentare: The first time I used it, I was surprised at how fluidity it accepted my commands. The editing tools have quick response, and do not consume as much memory or processing as the most popular products on the market. It is a very well optimized tool, and it has a simplified and intelligent editor. In our team we use to design new features for our software and conduct usability testing with real users.
Vorteile: It's great for med/high fidelity prototypes. I can show others about the functionalities of a website or app I'm working on, including interactions and onboarding, will look like. Great for sharing with the team a product vision, or simply presenting to a customer. In addition I can still do real time editing with colleagues in the same project, and it automatically saves everything in the cloud, figma is a marvel.
Nachteile: Integration with Adobe Fonts account is still a downside, I need to have the fonts installed in my pc.

Figma transformed our entire design <> developement cycle
Kommentare: Figma allows us to make better, more precisely designed products, faster than ever before, and we can't think of going back to old tools and methodologies.
Figma allows our designers and developers to work and collaborate with a single tool.
The design and product team design in Figma and the developers go in and take all their necessary assets and info for development. Everything is synced in the cloud so there's never the issue of trying to find old versions, and the cycle for development is shrunk to a minimum. Figma allows our designers to focus on the best design and the developers are never stuck without their assets.
Nachteile: I believe there's still a need for better organization tools. In a big team with lots of projects, it can be hard to organize everything in a sane manner.

All in one!
Vorteile: If you're familiar with Sketch, this is similar but way better! I've been using it for a while and find it way powerful. It includes its own prototype solution so you don't have to integrate with another prototyping tool (like InVision or Marvel) and does really really well. Also, the inspect mode is included (so, again you don't need to integrate with, i.e. Zeplin). Symbols works fine, prototyping is great, inspect very useful, permits are a must, live view is awesome to see what other are doing in real time + comments. Autosave thumbs-up! Cloud storage also nice!
Nachteile: Manage and find comments its a little bit awkward yet and there are no plugins (but they're coming soon!) Live view is a powerful tool but take care people don't abuse of it.

I'm in love with Figma!
Kommentare: Finally, a tool that is actually meant for web and UI design!
Vorteile: Figma is so beautiful and smooth... it's fast, it has awesome features and it's everything I have always wanted in a web design and user interface tool. For years I've been waiting for a tool like this, the Photoshop and Illustrator days are over! Figma is easy to use and makes the design process a lot easier and faster. I love the live preview for mobile devices and that nobody has to download anything to preview the design. Also, it works on any computer regardless of your OS. Compared to Adobe XD and Sketch, Figma is 100% superior and more powerful. For small teams or individual work, the free version is more than enough.
Nachteile: For some people it might be weird to use it or even consider that a browser-based software could be as good as Sketch or other installable software but it will blow your mind. There's nothing I don't like about it. For all the designers out there, definitely give a try! It will surprise you, in a good way.

Figma is the best UI design tool on the market
Kommentare: I love it. It's the best.
Vorteile: I have used illustrator (in the old days) sketch, Adobe XD, Invision studio and many more. For real world product design with stakeholders, developers, managers, teams, etc. Figma is hands down the best tool. Because it's all web based you have one source of truth. There is no syncing files across Dropbox, ensuring the team is looking at the right file, syncing discrepancies, etc. In addition any user can open a link in their browser to start working, export assets, or colaborate in real time on a design. It's the best.
Nachteile: Figma needs to improve it's mockup and prototyping tools. A huge part of product design is getting high fidelity mockups in front of users quickly and figma struggles in this area. You can do basic baisc mockups but you can't do more realistic mockups.

An Excellent Tool for Collaborative Design
Kommentare: Figma has allowed my design team to collaborate more closely and effectively by making design collaboration and sharing seamless.
Vorteile: Figma's best features are that it allows collaborative design work and that it makes sharing designs so easy. When designing collaboratively on Figma, multiple designers can work on the same file at once, which has been a great way for my team to generate lots of design ideas. The engineering and performance of this feature is impressive. Even with many designers making many changes at once, the application does not slow down, and everyone sees changes immediately.
Nachteile: My only complaint about Figma is that it takes a while to open some files. However, this is only with very large files. Overall, Figma is still a great product!

I LOVE Figma
Vorteile: I love that it's web-based but you can also download it and everything's in one place. It opens quickly and everything's really fast. They are constantly improving the performance and adding new tools and features. They recently added the PDF export feature and that shows that they really listen to their users because that was one of the most requested features.
Nachteile: They changed the way the artboards work and now when trying to resize them it tries to resize/move EVERYTHING in it. It didn't do that a couple of updates ago. It's extremely annoying and it just doesn't make sense to me why it behaves like that. So I have to group everything, move it out of the artboard, resize the artboard and then move everything back in. Not good!

Great tool for prototyping
Kommentare: I've used it for student work, as well as my first real-world tasks. I've tried Sketch and Balsamiq in the past, and currently Figma is my favourite for all phases of a UX design project.
Vorteile: I can make quick wireframes, as well as detailed prototypes. Has a lot of the ease of use of Balsamiq, which is my favourite go-to for low-fidelity wireframes. However, with Figma you can also easily make a polished prototype, collaborate online with colleagues and get comments from devs/other designers while working on a project. It's very intuitive.
Nachteile: Mostly, it works without a hitch. I did encounter a bug once that took me a bit of time to fix, with a group not appearing in prototype view. Turns out it's a common issue, solved by turning the group into a frame, or selecting a single (simple) object to trigger a transition instead. The support database and forums have a lot of information, however, so this problem wasn't so hard.

Figma is THE Powerful, Collaborative Design Tool for the 21st Century
Kommentare: Figma is a powerful tool that enables design teams to collaborate on design in real-time, and scale their process and design systems. It is hands-down the best screen, digital, and interface design tool on the market.
Vorteile: Figma unlocks powerful digital and screen/UI design at a scale, pace, and collaboration that was previously unthinkable. It is the most iterative, frictionless way to design just about anything.
Nachteile: In the early days, Figma had some stability issues and difficulty importing Sketch files. Sketch import is now near flawless, and it is powerful and stable. I would love to see Figma tackle more robust branching/versioning, but it has become the only design tool to outpace Sketch in terms of speed and quality.

Best all-in-one software for designers
Kommentare: For me, it's the best option for designing since it includes all I need in one package. I replaced four other softwares with Figma and never looked back.
Vorteile: The best thing about Figma is that it's a complete package. Using Figma, I can design, prototype, inspect elements (for actual development), version my projects and collaborate with others.
Nachteile: As Figma is still in its early days, it may lack some very specific and niche functionality. I haven't encountered myself in a situation where I needed something that was lacking, but it may happen.

Giving Sketch a Run For Its Money
Kommentare: The real-time collaboration within Figma makes it a very powerful tool for syncing projects within teams and keeping your work organized while simplifying your workflow.
Vorteile: Figma is a robust and simple program for UI/UX and Web Design. Its features will be familiar to you if you have ever used Sketch App or Adobe XD. It is packed with all of the features you need in order to collaborate with colleagues on projects and present your projects straight from Figma to express your concepts in a meaningful way. You can also add comments directly on your document which show up in real time. Another great feature of Figma is Figma Mirror which allows you to preview your mobile designs with edits reflected in real time.
Nachteile: Although I understand why Figma wouldn't implement this feature, I do wish you had the ability to export to Sketch for designers who insist on sticking with Sketch. Fortunately, SVG is a universal format which you can use to export designs across platforms and OS. However, I don't have many complaints. It is a very clean program with a beautiful interface.

The most intuititve and smoothest software for wireframing and prototyping out there
Kommentare: Really satisfied. Their customer support gets back within a day if you got any queries. They Figma community is great. I would say, my work speed has increased 10 folds after shifting to Figma from the previosu software.
Literally everything. To mention a few
1) It is completely cloud-based. You can access and work on your projects from literally any system. Plus you can collaborate with your team and work on the same project in real time.
2) The software is extremely smooth even after having like a 100 frames in one file.
3) The prototype mode irradicates the need for Invision to present concepts to clients.
4) Exporting is seamless in Figma and quick. Large number of frames can be exported all at once.
Nachteile: Not much to not like about Figma. But recently there have been certain bugs that can be quite irritating. Currently, you can create any animations or apply any transition effects to the prototypes. This would have made the prototypes more presentable to the clients.

Figma - The best software for UX
Kommentare: I am extremely satisfied with this software and with the help of it, I can work faster and more efficient. Since making wireframes is so easy and adequate, I can make multiple design options and explore so many things. Previously I was creating wireframes in Mockflow and presenting them on Invision, but now I can just share a Figma file directly to the client which allow me make changes even after I have shared the file with the client.
Vorteile: The best things about figma is that you can work online and it allows multiple users to work on a file simultaneously. You can see a team member, working on the same file in real time. The software is extremely smooth and accurate and another best feature of Figma is that it auto-saves your work so that you don't need to worry about losing some changes that you make in a design.
Nachteile: The thing that I don't like about Figma is that it doesn't have an auto spell check and external plugins like Grammarly doesn't work on this software. Another thing that I hate about this software is the comment feature when you send a link to the client. A client has to log-in to write a comment on the link that I share.

Excellent UI/UX design tool
Kommentare: We use Figma to streamline the work flow with developers and designers. It's an excellent tool for designers to create web components in a way that is clear for developers to implement.
Vorteile: It's easy to use, available as a web application or a standalone client and it's free. It's becoming the industry standard for UI design.
Nachteile: The standalone client tends to consume a lot of RAM and becomes a bit slow. No libraries of design templates.

The best collaborative wireframing app
Kommentare: We use Figma for design, ideation, prototyping and presentations. Also for any documentations.
Vorteile: We have been using Figma since the very beginning, what started as an online vector drawing application has become our go to tool for any collaborative note taking or design tasks. We even use Figma to build pitch decks and presentations. Also great that they support students with free team accounts. Thanks!
Nachteile: Simple animations or pointer/ mouse gestures are unfortunately not possible. So for any high fidelity prototyping we use Framer instead, which unfortunately is not collaborative.

Kommentare: I'm a UI/Ux designer. I design web/mobile app with Figma, giving users a feel of what they desire. I have enjoyed Figma more than any other app design tool.
Vorteile: Figma is one app design tool I have made my choice. It's not just a tool, it's a feel. I love the collaborative feature, working together with a collegue or client simultenouesly. It gives you a feel of the app you're working on without disrupting what the next person is also working on, despite doing that on same canvas.
Figma is still a web-based app. For users to be able to fully happy, there should be a free use of the Figma when there's limited or no internet access.
Secondly, I have long expected to see Figma integrate animation features. This will buy my soul eternally for Figma.

Figma, one of the best UI/UX tools for developers and designers
Kommentare: I'm majorly an Android developer and Figma helps me collaborate with my UI/UX designer seamlessly without the need to install a separate app -- everything is on the web. It has also reduced the time it takes for me to get around and implement features added by the designers, which increases efficiency and increases speed of development and product release.
Vorteile: I like the fact that, as a developer, I'm able to see the dimensions and other properties of UI components like text colour, font size, font family, etc very easily. It also generates XML code (for Android and iOS) and CSS (for web) which comes in handy to get a quick UI setup. Lastly, it allows you to collaborate with others on your team seamlessly.
Nachteile: It was not easy getting used to it at first as I'm coming from tools like Adobe and Zeplin, but once I got a hang of it, it's bliss afterwards. There's nothing I don't like about Figma, at least on the web client which I use.

Great for collaboration!
Vorteile: I liked that you can work with live collaborator and it is immediate and that it offers the translation of the design in code for ios/android/web which is great for developers!
Nachteile: The fact that offline doesnt work, when you have lots of design in one board it gets really slow and I cant control when designers change something and I notice it after lots of days and my work is different from design.

The first designer collaboration I ever used
Vorteile: Collaboration not just limited to commenting but actually having more than one designer working on the same file at the same time. There's no doubt Figma is an under development tool and its team is working hard everyday to fulfill the requirements of UI/UX design industry. I have to say for me they are succeeding to achieve what I need from my dream design tool. The other best part that Figma now have allowed everyone to create plugins and make it available for everyone. This have been so helpful and users have been very collaborative in building plugins and helping Figma to expand it's boundaries. Creating libraries for assets, text and colors and sharing it with the team is very friendly. And I always have a backup for my file so now I don't need to worry about the software crash and files are easy to access from anywhere as Figma is a browser based software and the desktop app is light.
Nachteile: When you enter in a group and delete a particular object Figma don't just delete the object it also pushes you outside of the group and now you have to enter in the group again to delete any other object. However I can use CTRL key and then select any particular object.

Figma is an innovative, collaborative, powerful shared design tool for teams.
Kommentare: This product has enabled our entire team to be productive at a myriad of design projects from marketing, to product.
Vorteile: Figma has outpaced Sketch in terms of UI design allowing you to collaborate on a myriad of design projects in the browser, along with your entire team. Also they've recently forayed into enabling teams to build shared component libraries, and tap into external services via the Figma Platform API.
Nachteile: Figma (in its early days) had some bugs and lagginess, but that has eradicated. It is stable, fast, and solid for nearly any digital design project.

FIgma is shaking things up!
Kommentare: We are using it to update our current website and create new designs for our company. I want to attempt to use it for social media display ads as well. So far it's been an absolute life saver!
I haven't used figma for long but man oh man has it blown me away. The first time I showed a website design to my boss while we were both on screen, through the web browser was pretty incredible. I could see his mouse movements and suggestions as I made edits. Allowing for real-time interaction and feedback is incredible.
Next is that it's cross-platform because it runs in a browser. Sketch is Mac only. They have really thought out what a modeling UI/UX designer needs and are constantly improving the platform. One of the huge things is live prototyping I can see what it will look like on my device in real time. That can't be beat. Incredible piece of software that will only get better.
Nachteile: Text styles are a little limited and it can be clunky to edit variables such as button text compared to sketch where each button has an input field in the properties panel. This is a small complaint and really just one of those things you have to think around and then you discover it's just fine.

Vorteile: To start, Figma has really put a lot of thought into how designers can organize their files and design efficiently. The components are awesome and being able to have your resources in a library across multiple projects is very useful.
Nachteile: The plugins have their limits and leave much to be desired.
