Figma just leveled up

I've been using Figma as a design tool on and off for about a year now. It is an awesome program, but look what they just added!

Figma Animation

What design tool are you using?

Note: I am not affiliated with Figma in any way, I just really dig their product.

Currently using XD. Is it easy to switch to Figma? Interesting in the live collaboration.

Yes, i think so. May take a bit to import all the stuff your working on, but it's similar.

Does it require a mouse or is a laptop touchpad sufficient?

I've used both. I prefer using a mouse, but it'll work with a touchpad.

looks like it's time to check out Figma and move from Sketch. Thanks for this post, Jared.

Of course! The prototyping alone makes it worth it 👍🏼
