Which do you use most for digital sketching? Why?

both more than get the job done, and even though i feel like sketchbook for the ipad is technically a better app for sketching, because of its tools (things like shape templates, rulers, etc.) and the way it actually smooths out lines, i find procreate to be easier to use in practice...it just seems a more straightforward to navigate and its gestures are easier to use, which just make it more comfortable to use for me. i also like that procreate can automatically be set to record every stroke & out a video as opposed to having to actually remember to hit record in sketchbook.

I started with Procreate on iPad, but once Sketchbook came out with ellipse guides, I switched. I decided I like the Sketchbook UI more, too. Faster switching between brushes. Procreate does have a lot of handy features, but switching brushes was slowing me down big time.

I use SBP but would be interested in trying out Procreate. I'm using both a touch capacitive screen on an HP x360 and an active screen for a different x360. I would be interested in knowing if anyone has a good pen suggestion for a capacitive screen.
