Axure RP gives you the wireframing, prototyping and specification tools needed to make informed design choices, persuade any skeptics, get your design built to spec... and maybe win a few fans along the way.

 

Sketch & Design
Quickly create wireframes that evolve from sketch to ready-for-dev designs.
Quickly create beautiful wireframes with boxes, placeholders, shapes, and text. When you're ready for more visual polish, add color, gradients, and semi-transparent fills, import images, use grids and guides for precise placement, or the many other tools designed to help you work at the right fidelity for your project.

 

Interact
Experience and present prototypes that go beyond basic links.
Create simple click-throughs or highly functional, rich prototypes with conditional logic, dynamic content, animations, drag and drop, and calculations. You don't always need it, but when you do, it's nice to have the power to take your designs to the next level for your own evaluation, client feedback, or user testing.

 

Document
Annotate your wireframes and automatically generate Word specifications.
Add notes to widgets and pages to provide more context to the prototypes and clarify or detail functionality. The annotations are organized into customizable fields to help manage the information and standardize the documentation. Page notes can also be divided into categories for different audiences

 Collaborate
Design together keeping a history of changes and keep track of  feedback.
Use shared projects to work simultaneously with other team members on a project. Keep a history of changes and export previous versions of the project when you need to. Use a shared network drive for easy setup. Or store projects on an SVN server for remote access. And the best part, there's no additional cost for Axure RP.
