"I was opposed to Figma, but then I tried it"

Pros: Being in the industry for a decade, we were using a variety of tools for UX/UI Design. But Figma has conquered our minds with the next most impactful features: collaborativeness, ease of use (thank you components), cross-platform approach.

Cons: Managing files could be significantly improved by adding folders and tagging. Projects are not enough.

"Figma should be the industry standard for UX/UI design"

Comments: As somebody who deals with complex applications, the collaboration and design system capabilities Figma brings to the table is just awesome. I switched from Sketch which covers some of the functionality but it's very hard to create and maintain a design system which mirrors how developers build up interfaces. Figma enables and encourages you to think in components and build and scale a design system as oppose to individual screens. This approach is essential to any product-based business.

Pros: - Collaboration: follow every update in real time. Sharing designs with client? You don't need to worry if they look at the latest updates or not. Collaborating with others on a design? No need to sync or update - it happens in real-time and automatically.
- Components: very easy to use components and start to apply an atomic design approach.
- Design system-centered thinking: Figma nailed a bunch of tedious and cumbersome design tasks: for example, it was not intuitive to work with layer styles, text styles and colors in Sketch (before I switched to Figma in 2018). In Figma, you can apply a saved color to texts, vector objects - anything. Very easy to work with saved text presets as well - they all built in a way to help you re-use them.

Cons: - The design (UI) of the interface is not so nice :) After 2 weeks I stopped noticing it, but as a designer it bugged me at the beginning.
- In some cases it takes time to load.
- Figma updates the software regularly which in some cases means a completely new interface - and sometimes not all the updates are very intuitive (though they are iterating pretty rapidly so that's a good thing)

"The UI/UX Prototyping Tool I've Dreaming With."

Comments: Not being able to use Sketch and not really liking a lot of the UI/UX prototyping offer, Figma appeared as god sent, you can build professional grade interfaces with just a few clicks.

Pros: Figma is pretty intuitive, in my first day I could make an entire UI prototype for a project, the best part? It looked great! With just a few clicks you can make animations and "emulate" complex menus and functionalities with just a couple video tutorials. Also, you have access to a ton of plugins to make your projects even better.

Cons: My only gripes with Figma has been the missing resources I get when previewing my projects sometimes. Also the amount of projects is limited on the free version, but I guess is worth it.

"the best design tool for teams"

Comments: As we are working on the same project at the same time the Figma cloud service it's really helping us being more productive.

Pros: The thing that I like the most about Figma it's the cross-platform support: You can use Figma on your Mac, pc, linux or even a browser. The second thing is the cloud service. Every changes you made it's updated automatically and every person on the team can see what you are changing in real-time

Cons: The thing that I like the lest about Figma it's the fact that it's not battery-efficient on the Mac compared to alternatives and it does not work well on browser. Moreover it's not very easy to use.

"Never expected that design collaboration could be that easy."

Pros: All in one... I moved to Figma for the purpose of design collaboration but as I kept using it I realized it have everything that I need to design a product. From website design to mobile apps I'm all in on Figma. The prototype creation is smooth and the best part above all it kept improvising and understanding all about what we designers as a user want from a design tool.

Cons: Although the prototype creation is smooth but it only allows you to have one main frame on a page. That creates problem for me when creating prototypes for micro interactions. I have to create multiple pages to have multiple prototypes. There are easier ways in terms of experience to fix it and I hope sooner Figma will improve this part too.
