Adobe has permanently made the interface design program XD CC for $ 120 a year permanently free. That’s just a start, according to Adobe’s explanation.
From now on, the Adobe XD CC Starter kit, which includes mobile and desktop versions of Adobe XD, allows designers to design, prototype, and share websites, applications, and other user interfaces, and is freely available to all designers anywhere in the world.
In 2013, Adobe switched to a cloud-based subscription system and completely cut off illegal downloads. In 2016, the company went from trial to trial to 30 days to 7 days depending on the trial version. So why is Adobe offering XD free so much against the free use of its software?
The main reason for this is that Adobe is using more of its software in the emerging UX / UI expertise and demanding that the company get a bigger share of the cake. Having conducted a survey with the company’s UX design managers and department leaders, Adobe found that 87% of the top priorities saw winning UX designers.
Scott Belsky, the lead author of the Adobe product and design team, said that the free software is just the beginning, saying that Adobe is now a new goal and that it is a new priority to think of new tools that will bring the tools they have.
