    pros, cons and recent comments

    It's the best UX/UI tool out there, bar none. Besides very strong vector editor features, which allow creating responsive wireframes, mockups, and prototypes in no time, its collaboration features are unparalleled. It's extremely simple to hand off a design from UX to UI, or from UI to a copyrighter, allowing them to experiment on a duplicated page or just tweak the copy in the design.

    It has most of the features found in Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop, XD and Indesign.. I believe it is for creating Graphics more than editing them... Each update comes with new Features
