- It's great for interface design for apps and websites, has loads of templates and resources available on ui8.net and other sites. Also good for flow diagrams. And as a bonus, I use it for product canvases/strategy canvases - a kind of infinite surface where I need to dump a load of info on the screen at once (docs, images, annotations etc).
- Once you get used to using Alfred you'll be able to kill your dock and speed up your workflow.When I sit in front of a Mac that doesn't have Alfred installed, I have no idea what to do. It is like when I am at a friend's house and I drop food on the floor and realize they don't have a dog. Why not just get a dog? It makes like so much easier. Alfred is the very first thing I would install on a Mac
I cannot imagine how to use Mac without it. Finding apps by name is more convenient for me that do it with standard ways that iOS provides
Workflow is a killer feature. Also, you can configure Alfred to be called by double tapping one of the modifier keys. This is super convenient.
- Essential accessibility tool for designers.
- My preferred design environment that's on the come up. It's prototyping abilities are decently advanced and improved on periodically. A bit more intuitive than Sketch while also being less bloated, imo. Adobe XD has a very nice built in prototype sharing feature, too. I send my higher-ups links to prototypes with embedded comments throughout the artboard which they can easily pull up in browser. Or I can connect my phone to my Mac and view my mobile designs with ease via an Adobe XD mobile app. Edits I make on my Mac are instantly reflected on my phone in real time. It is also free to use and cross platform, which is handy.
I used it to create a bunch of clips for a presentation – it was a literally game-changer. Everybody asked me afterwards what tool I used. Great stuff Morten!
A great product to quickly create videos/gifs for design presentation. I've been using After Effects to create videos of my designs since a couple of years. Used tonnes of plugins (like Sketch2AE) to get my designs into AE but it just doesn't work all the time. I usually ended up creating a Flinto and then use that video in AE. A pain!
With DesignCamera, I could import the Sketch designs with a quick shortcut. The layering feature was awesome too. The built-in animation preset looked awesome!
I had a performance problem on my Macbook Pro 2017 but it might have been because of number of apps open at that time.
It's a great concept but the implementation is still lacking; resource usage is incredibly high, the application is frustratingly slow, and the amount of bugs encountered is in the tens per day.
This is a new way to manage design work. I really appreciate their app pretty new and pretty awesome. Recommended for small and medium and larger design teams who are working with product apps.
- Likely the fastest prototyping tool with great options for micro animations. The learning curve is low and can easily support complex projects with many pages. Has good integration with Sketch but can also be used as a stand-alone design tool. The prototype can be viewed on all iOS devices but not on Android.
This is something I had no idea I needed until now. I used to measure things by initiating a screenshot and then dragging to measure. I'd say this is WAY easier.
It's a great tool and if somebody had a lot of screenshots because used command + shift + 4 for measuring distances on the screen, this well worth the price!
I've been using SetApp for more than a year and I have to say, it's become one of my favorite services.
I was skeptical about an app subscription service, but did the math and for Ulysses, Screens, and a few other must-have apps, it was worth its price.
To my surprise, it has actually become even more valuable, as I discover apps I wouldn't have otherwise used -- like Expressions and TablePlus -- or that I may have been weary about buying for their price (like Downie, a youtube-dl frontend that is great but not something I'd necessarily want to spend $20 on).
If you have already paid for some of the pricier apps in SetApp, it's "value" may not be as great -- but as time goes on and more major upgrades are released, it's something Mac users, especially power Mac users should definitely consider.
I love it.
First ever subscription model for macOS apps of different companies.
It's awesome, I regret purchasing many apps before.
