Every designer has questions about paying Adobe Creative Cloud (CC) Tax or paying for individual third-party design apps.

Today, I used Adobe XD for the whole day. I felt it was competitive to use the Sketch app on Mac.

I have avoided using Adobe XD all these years because Adobe Subscription Tax usually costs me INR 5,000/—here in India. But I loved Sketch App’s payment model, which is almost INR 5,000/year. Then, you can renew your subscription or use it without updates as long as you want.

I loved Adobe XD’s compatibility and integration with Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop. It is really smooth and well done. Adobe XD’s prototype tool is smooth.

I loved it.

BTW, I was using my company’s license for Adobe CC, so it is not that affordable for personal use. I hope Adobe looks into its pricing model.

Minor correction: Adobe CC costs INR 5,000/—per month in India, and the Sketch App costs 5,000/ to 7,000/ per year for updates. You can use it as long as you want without updates.

Thanks & Regards
