Figma is a powerful, browser-based design tool that is quickly becoming the go-to choice for many professional and amateur designers alike. It offers an intuitive and user-friendly interface, allowing users to easily create beautiful designs. The platform is also highly collaborative, allowing multiple users to work on the same project in real-time.
The popularity of this web-based design software has led to the development of several apps for devices like iOS and Android. These apps allow users to access their Figma projects from anywhere, anytime. Unfortunately, there is currently no official desktop app available for Windows or Mac users.
Why No Desktop App?
Also, since the Figma platform is designed to be used in a browser, there may not be much incentive for the developers to spend time and resources creating a desktop version.
Although there isn’t an official desktop app available yet, there are several alternatives that can be used instead. For Windows users, Microsoft’s WebView2 technology allows you to access Figma in its native web environment directly from the Windows 10 desktop environment.
For Mac users, Electron can be used to wrap Figma’s web application into a native Mac app that can be downloaded from the App Store.
At this time, there is no official Figma app for PC or Mac users. However, with the help of technologies such as Microsoft’s WebView2 or Electron’s open source framework it is possible to access Figma’s web application directly from your desktop environment.
