It seems like Adobe is pretty adamant on bringing their productivity suite to the Windows Store; it has only been a few days since the release of Adobe Photoshop Elements 15 on the Windows Store, and now it turns out – Adobe is bringing Adobe XD to the Store as well.
Adobe XD – also known as Experience Design CC – is designed to make the process of creating a user experience more efficient. The app provides tools that help developers build simple wireframes to complex multi-screen experiences.
The app has features like interactive prototyping, allowing designers to add interactions without ever leaving XD, and simulate them in real-time for the desktop or mobile.
While Adobe XD was originally exclusive to the macOS, per the report from Neowin, Adobe has been working on bringing the app to Windows 10 as a UWP app since September.
The folks at WindowsBolgItalia have now gotten their hands on the private beta for the app, which – at the version of 0.6.3.28 – does look well on its way for the prime time, but not quite ready just yet.
End of 2016
This private beta is by no means a surprise – Adobe had already stated that there was a Windows version in the works, and it would be releasing before the end of 2016.
It’s just that 2016 is ending in less than a month, so Adobe should probably haste with the development.
Of course, nobody – except Adobe, probably – can guess when Adobe XD would release to the public; you can, for now, try out the private beta by filling up this form.
Although, the chances of you getting in are slim – Adobe only adds 50 people every month to the private beta program.
Hopefully, Adobe will be able to keep its promise of a 2016 release – if not, an early 2017 release can’t be too bad.
