    Well, doesn't change the fact that it's still free.

    Sketch isn't multiplatform. Not all designers have Macs. Sketch is a non-starter for many people that don't have Macs.

    Photoshop has a completely different workflow that isn't focused on UI design at all. And I dunno about you, but once you get a ton of artboards with tons of elements, the file slows down dramatically. Launch times are painfully slow, and quickly zooming and panning can be excruciating.

    XD has its perks. Just because you don't see them doesn't mean they aren't there.

    But the reason why we have 100's of tools on the market is because everyone's needs are different. XD is a great tool that works for a ton of people and in many areas is better than PS and Sketch. Especially when it comes to specs, collaboration, dev handoff, performance, and prototyping.
