Adobe announces that it's offering its design software, Adobe XD, for free

Once you're done prototyping your design you can transition it into your app. Clearly, it's putting some significant effort into XD, with monthly feature updates. Of course, Adobe is hoping this free plan will entice you to subscribe to its other offerings, including the $9.99 Adobe XD Single App plan. "Adobe XD will be as big as Photoshop, if not bigger", said Andrew Shorten, Senior Director, Product Management at Adobe XD's recent global press conference.

That doesn't yet extend to building an app directly from Adobe XD, but Pickr was told that Adobe is invested in advanced prototyping, and that could arrive later.

Adobe also announced the Adobe Fund for Design.

To enable the vibrant ecosystem of partners, developers and startups, Adobe today announced the Adobe Fund for Design, a $10 million fund, distributed in the form of grants and equity investments.

The software is getting several new updates that will start rolling out in the next couple of months.

Adobe is betting on its UI/UX design and prototype solution Adobe XD to be as big as its flagship product Photoshop in the forthcoming future.

New Adobe XD features and capabilities are prioritised and introduced based on feedback from the design community and user requests.

Some of the improvements in this month's update include improved integration with Photoshop and Sketch.

There is also an option now to password protect files that allows designers to restrict access to specs by using a password in the Share popup window. You can also now paste to multiple artboards, saving even more time.

While Adobe's experience designer program "XD" normally requires a paid subscription to its Creative Cloud suite, this week Adobe is releasing a free starter subscription on Mac and PC, potentially opening its platform up to more people, including those who might be curious about design and keen to give the area a dabble.

"The new Starter plan for Adobe XD supports Adobe's vision to give everyone-from emerging artists to enterprise brands-everything they need to design and deliver exceptional digital experiences and explore the rapidly expanding field of UX design with no financial commitment." said Scott Belsky, chief product officer and executive vice president, Creative Cloud at Adobe.

Additional details on plan options and pricing for each tier are available on Adobe's website.
