    I'm baffled by how many people use Photoshop over Illustrator for UI designs. There are better tools than Illustrator, but Ai is already head and shoulders above Ps for interfaces. Do they just refuse to learn Ai? That said, I've been forced to use Powerpoint and Keynote for iOS apps before, which was literally a nightmare (seriously, I had dreams about endless pixel pushing)

      I think it's mostly familiarity for the majority, but there are some Photoshop experts on here like Marc Edwards from Bjango who is apparently working on another Sketch competitor.

      I will never use Photoshop for UI design, but to be fair it does do better exporting of bitmap content than Illustrator does (like gradients that are too complex for CSS).
