Experience with Axure RP?

Is there anyone out there who has been using Axure for
creating wireframes, sitemaps and/or specs who's
interested in sharing their experience?

We've been looking at the tool for our own use (we mostly
use Visio and Fireworks now) and are wondering just how
much more efficient it is for creating documentation, and
how it's working for others.

So how is it?

read, what a good interaction ( design ) should be ?


Most interesting were Westergren’s comments about advertising. As you can
see in the clip below, the show’s host, Scott McGrew, and my co-panelist,
NPR’s Laura Sydell, claim to be huge Pandora fans but couldn’t seem to
remember hearing many ads. Said Westergren: That means we’re doing it right.

He said when he talks to Pandora users they always say they don’t hear many
ads, and they don’t think they interact with the site much.
