I keep looking at XD, but we keep having to use something else. XD seems to really JUST be about how something looks, but good experience design is more about how it actually works. Making it pretty is just part of that.
So we're using Proto.io to deliver a looks like, feels like prototype. It doesn't do much because it doesn't have interaction outside of itself. It can't control an LED. So we fake that with an onscreen light if we need. Or I capture commands with something else if we get that far.
But it has very basic (I mean VERY) variables to control a few things, custom animations, and you can really get a decent prototype of what you're after. Delivering that to the actual developer ensures you end up with something much closer. They can even look at the code if they are having troubles developing it. That usually gives them a hint on how to accomplish the same look and feel.
We just need basic If thens. If the advanced button hasn't been hit, don't show these items. If the user hasn't filled in their name, show them an error if they try and advance.
We need to be able to show those things. Right now people are creating a Ridiculous number of artboards showing, what they think are, every possible screen to the developer. But with XD you can't actually go through them, because they are Context based. So it doesn't really help.
Seriously, sometimes the developer is great at programming, but just plain dumb when it comes to user interaction. XD Could be the tool to show that interaction. It's getting Closer, but still not useable.
Just in Mind is pretty good. Proto.io is good. Axure is both terrible and good.

Well, you can't do this, but remember, we have the super useful Voice feature. :/
