1. Axure RP

Compatibility: Windows and Mac

Price:

Free Trial - 30 days

Pro - $29/month, Team -$49/moth, Enterprise -$99/month

Axure RP is a professional and all-in-one windows prototyping tool often recommended and used by most experienced UX designers thanks to its powerful functions, like exporting visualized conditional flow, adding vivid animations and data-driven interactions, and completing a team project, etc. And it can help edit a project to the very super details.

However, with a very professional interface, it is also a little bit tricky for people who are not familiar with its over professional features and complicated operations.

So, it is more suitable for an experienced UX designer, not a beginner, to design and create a sophisticated and professional prototype with Axure.
