iOS version of XD with robust iPad Pro support
I've been enjoying the XD Preview immensely, and find it super useful, with much promise. But I'm doing more and more work on the iPad Pro these days, and that's in large part due to the current crop of Adobe iOS apps.
A full-featured version of Adobe XD for iOS, including CC sync, would be amazing.

Very much agree. Having the ability to make mock ups on the fly would be a game changer.

Im Agree, totally agree. It will help me to create prototype anywhere.
+ 1 for XD on the iPad
Adobe should be (and appears to be trending towards) focusing on making the collective design process as seamless as possible - always minimizing the distance of creative energy and the device. The iPad pro should be the obvious focus for full(er) spectrum design flow - make the hop to the desktop feel right - not cumbersome.
I totally agree. This would be the biggest differentiator for XD compared to Invision and Marvel.
Problem is, no one I know would drop an Invision or Marvel license to pick up the $50/mo for Creative Cloud and Adobe is in no rush as they already have their current customer's money coming in. #cynical

If Adobe XD would come to the iPad Pro with Pencil support and automatic shape interpretation like what Adobe Comp CC does, my happiness would know no bounds.
It seems like a no brainer, every time I link an artboard with my mouse, it's like I should be doing it with my finger. Ipad pro support is the next step, you even use an existent app like illustrator and add this functionality instead of write a new one (speed instead of months of waiting). It seems like illogic that I'm on ipad pro I cannot create a quick prototype to be able to display it on my ipad or iphone.
Do not waste your time developing an app to test your prototype when you cannot first create the prototype in the ios device.
Another idea, just try also to create this app on the iphone. There is no app that let's you prototype on the iphone. It seems like the most obvious idea for adobe to explore prototyping on the same device that you are going to use it, no?
I hope is helpful.

+ 1 for XD on the iPad
I love Adobe XD on desktop, and the speed with which I can wireframe in Adobe Comp for the iPad — especially using a Pencil on the iPad Pro.
Being able to work this way enables me to sketch a design out in a meeting and saves a load of back-and-forth.
It's frustrating that in order to take the designs to the next stage that you need to go back to the desktop. It breaks up the flow and can feel harder to collaborate on a desktop.
Even a cut down version of XD with the layout features of Comp, and the ability to link a few screens together would be really useful.

I am moving into the cloud. For the next year, traveling worldwide ultralight, I will have to maintain websites on an iPad Pro with 256GB memory, intermittently connected to high speed internet. I hope that Adobe makes an app for this market eventually. I am an app developer, and understand the issues. I have been a CC subscriber, but for the time being will have to drop CC until a full stable of iPad versions are available.

This would really make XD stand out from other ux apps. I would love a powerful app like Adobe XD for my iPad Pro.

As soon as I saw the previews of XD (Comet) I had a similar reaction. The iPad Pro appers to be so well suited for this prototyping environment. This would add to the "Pro" status of my iPad.
