What is right tool for UI/UX Work: Adobe Photoshop / XD / Sketch / Figma

As far as I can remember I am using Photoshop from version two. So I am using Photoshop for almost twenty years less or more.

I am using the Sketch app for 4 years. And just now because of team recommendations I have to switch to Figma.

The most problematic point about Photoshop or XD is its pricing model. Adobe force you to buy all Creative Cloud apps whether you choose it or not. In India, Adobe CC costs INR 45,000/- plus taxes.

The best thing about the Sketch app is its pricing model i.e. Annual Subscription which cost you INR 7,500/- for a year and after it ends you use the same app as long as you want without buying another subscription yes you will not get updates but you have an app to work with.
