These are the pieces of software that I know and I'm comfortable with. I may or may not have spent more time than necessary recreating their icons from scratch.
Adobe Creative Suite
Apple Pro Apps

Other Useful Tools
These aren't as easily categorized as the other ones, but can be equally as important.
This has recently become my go-to tool for just about anything design related. The ability to create shared styles, symbols, and export with ease makes my workflow just flow, which becomes super apparent when switching back to Photoshop and Illustrator. There are also powerful Plug-ins that make it even more flexible, and automated. Sketch Mirror is a powerful companion app that is indispensable while working on mobile UI design.
The best implementation for a music making application I've ever used for a mobile platform. Based on rhythm and range, the simplicity makes it easy to put down an idea, or even experiment. There are only a couple of parameters to manipulate, so you can't get sucked down a rabbit hole of tweaking.
Minimalistic writing app that makes it easier to focus on what you're writing by getting rid of distractions. Markdown formatting, web preview, and syncing make this super nice. The iOS app easily allows you to export the document you're working on into other apps, such as Squarespace's Blog app.
These apps aren't exactly tools for creation, but they make the job easier.
That's all folks!
