Adobe XD design app for Windows 10 to be released this year

Adobe  just announced that it will release a UWP version of its Adobe XD design app for Windows 10 soon. The app should be available to users in an open beta and is set to release later this year, probably sometime at the end of 2016.

Adobe’s XD design app is already available on Mac, and after success on this platform, the company decided to try its luck with another operating system.

“UWP represents the future of the Windows platform, opening up opportunities for us to leverage the latest touch-enabled hardware and to deliver Adobe XD to a future generation of Windows-based devices.”

The Windows 10 version should have different features compared to the Mac version, like full support for both pen and touch. As Adobe XD design will first be available to users in a beta version, it won’t have all its planned features at first. Once the app becomes stable, though, everything will be added.

“For example, only on Windows 10 will Adobe XD offer full support for both pen and touch – meaning that you can fluidly zoom and pan your document, create vector artwork and connect wires between screens of your prototype by using touch-based input. Designing and creating prototypes using touch on Windows feels completely natural and will make Adobe XD feel even more special for Windows users.”

It’s interesting to see Adobe developing an app for Windows 10’s UWP, especially with many big developers having run away from it recently. Still, it is perfectly reasonable for Adobe to have a Windows 10 app because some of Microsoft’s devices, like the Surface Pro 4, or the Surface Book, offer great interfaces for working in apps like Adobe XD design.

If you want to check out a pre-release version of the app, developers can sign up for early access at Adobe’s website.
