Competent, robust, and stable prototyping tools are plentiful, but you don’t always get the feeling they’ve been developed or tested by genuine UX and design experts.

Consequently, it’s easy to find yourself (or your team) signing up to the wrong software. Onboarding with a new tool, and finding your feet can be time consuming, and workflows can take time to adjust. That’s why it is important to ensure that the new prototyping tool you’re considering is right for you and your team. is an online UX design application, and runs in your browser window. It can support single or multiple users, and handles design for desktop and mobile screens.

Developing a UX project with is a little trickier than with some other tools. This speaks more to the sheer scale of features rather than a lack of them, however. Indeed, this is probably why the editor provides a collection of templates for you to start working on. 

While the supporting materials and guides (see below) will guide you through, is not for anyone new to UX. Its features are more in-depth than some of the alternatives, with everything from text formatting to specifying actions for individual elements. This is a tool for more than simple UX design – the complete user experience can be built from scratch. 

The AI Wizard is provided to help you easily find an image for your project. Blog post images, products, logos, and icons can be quickly generated for these purposes. Customer support

If you run into trouble with your design, a collection of support resources can be found on the website. A searchable Help Center lets you search for solutions to problems, while a User Guide provides helpful articles in a logical order. Some of these include videos, which can be found separately, grouped in a “Video Academy.” 

Direct support can be enjoyed via the live chat box, found in the corner of the editor. The response here is pretty quick, so should swiftly provide you with the answer you need. Alternatively, a support request can be logged on a dedicated web page. The competition

Mockitt, Figma, UXPin, and many other UX design tools are available. Why would you opt for ahead of any of these? 

Well, you might consider the quality of the editor and the templates. Or you might assess the feature list and compare it against the competition. We think matches these other offerings in this regard, although some of them are cheaper (or freemium). 

You might also consider’s list of clients, which includes Indiegogo, Nordstrom, and PayByPhone. Final verdict

We were very surprised at the depth of what can deliver as a web app. This is a desktop-standard UX design tool that you can run in Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge, or Mozilla Firefox. So, it is platform independent, too – just as long as your OS supports a compatible browser.

While the website can be accessed from a mobile device, it will warn you that some features are not supported. Desktops and laptops are advised.

With so many features, cross platform support, and considerable integrations and collaboration options, really impressed. It may be more expensive that some of the alternatives, but it seems that this tool’s reputation is well deserved.

We feature the best web design software.
