      Adobe XD (for me a beginner) is the best vector design tool for creating / designing your mobile apps and websites. It is very easy to learn and you could be designing and creating your websites and iOS/ Android apps within a few days. There are so many tutorials on Youtube that teach you Adobe XD.

      Everything is displayed and arranged well. You will have no problem with the panels to the right, left and top. You can even have plugins that make life easier. Plugins that can generate filler text, add faces to your profile icons, add designs (like taxi image in app screen below) and more. You can add collaborators, send your clients a version where they can give feedback and more. Test your app out on your smartphone, see it in different sizes, and test it out yourself in XD. You can wireframe and prototype in Adobe XD.

      Adobe XD is very beginner friendly and its completely FREE.
