      Principle's main benefit comes in the fine control over animating UI interactions - XD does not offer comparable functionality (as of fall 2019).

      Adobe XD is for UI Design, Principle is used for making interaction mockups, where design is ready. So even their main purpose is not similar!

      Adobe XD has only some predefined interactions. There is no control over interaction design.

      Nothing to download/install, create and access your mockups from anywhere. Add pages with templates and define links to present a clickable prototype. Our components are of medium-fidelity not very sketchy or look too real. Its just right.
