Export interactive prototype as native mobile app (iOS, Android)
I'm Head of Brand Management in a marketing department. And more and more often we need to make a simple app to our colleagues in sales. Very simple functionality but vital information. The problem is that our development department do not have time and recourses to help us doing the coding for us.
So basically my suggestions is quite simple: Why can't Adobe XD have a export or build function like nativ.com or Appy Pie where you can build an app without coding. I do my designs in XD, Photoshop etc. and I have a licens for Adobe CC but I need to go to development and have them to do the coding. And if they dont have the time I'm lost.
So please consider to implement function like this - that would be great
All the best/Jean

@Pepito probably wanted to say "It'd be nice to see an Integration of coding / programming in Adobe XD" (I guess JS?)
theres no shortcuts to this. do the work
Still no reaction to this?

After using Adobe XD to create a cool app I run into the same question these same people have been asking for the past year or more.
HELLO? anyone home? Seriously.
Why are you not putting your efforts and resources into making Adobe XD a all in one App creator?
Add some swipe screen elements.
Some embed video including 360 video
And url linking complied with App export to not only Apple and Google but to the Blockchain itself.

XD is amazing but could be awesome if it could an iOS app without the need of coding. Don’t understand why with MU we can make a fully interactive website, but can’t do an app with XD? Let’s go adobe, you guys can change the game with this!
I agree with the last two comments in particular from Alizer and Peter Burgess. Why can we make a functional website with Muse, but not an app in Xd? This really needs to be rectified ASAP I believe.
Make Adobe XD a Mobile low code development platform. This is especially useful for small design companies that need to provide more digital services for small or new businesses that, although their budget is small, still need to compete in a digital business marketplace. A basic app builder would allow a designer to get an app up and running without a development company that may be cost prohibitive for something like a food truck business, for example.

Adobe XD: So we've created and prototyped our app with Adobe XD and it works great. So why can't we just upload it to google or apple and make it a working app. If I can build a functional website with muse, why not a functional app with XD?
what else do we have to do to actually make this a working app that can be uploaded? We don't have thousands of dollars to pay a developer...

It seems crazy that XD cannot use phone gap to publish a compiled app or to dreamweaver ...

It would be great to be able to export a real app to the smartphone, even if it was only with basic functions, but being able to draw and export a functional app would be the dream of many accomplished designer.

A very powerful feature to add would be a “Convert to Android (and Convert to iPhone”) feature. For example, after the designer has designed an iPhone screen, the designer would duplicate it, select the iPhone-specific widgets (or just the artboard), then select the “Convert to Android” function. Adobe XD would then read the name of all iPhone-specific widgets in the design and convert (swap) them all to Android widgets! All widgets would need to be named properly. This would save the designer from having to redesign the page for Android.
That would be a killer feature for AdobeXD. Especially if the exported project will use a native library for SVG assets, so that they does not need to be converted, but can be edited and included as assets in the original format.

Make an App like Invision, an native ios or android with a web view that loads and displays the sharable XD link.
Its about 2-5 hrs work for the iOS part. just needs local storage of the html which is easy.
Then it needs to be sharable.

"...you want to take the interactive prototype you created in XD and turn it directly into a compiled, native mobile app with the same very simple interactivity you created in XD?.."
Yes that's what I would want, especially for teaching in high school
Also more tools as have been mentioned
Dave Cochrane commented
I concur that this would be a great feature. You've got a tool here that is begging to be used for museum and retail exhibits, training applications...the list is endless. XD has impressed my students more than just about anything I've shown them in the last two years. The potential it offers is enormous.
Jean Felber commented
Yes basically - to both questions
I would like XD to export simple code for interactivity like slide functions between screens. Fx the app could consists pictures with text/info made in Photoshop - and then an simple slide function between the pictures so it actually works when I export it. That way we will be able to make an app our sales guys can have on there phone. I dosent have to go throug App store or Google play....
I have looked at Framer and it looks pretty nice - but again I'n no code-person. But I need the interactivity :-)

I think this request is more in line with your 1st assumption.
Just export the prototype as a a compiled native app. Much like Marvel from Google.
I think it would work better than going over the online prototypes - especially for enterprise scenarios, like mine, where we cannot use UX online prototypes
I think this feature could be the next big step. You won't need Developers anymore for simple apps. Just think about how much influence this would have. Adobe you should really get started working on this.
