- I love Figma because of the real-time collaboration and excellent thinking behind the product. Vector Networks (https://medium.com/figma-design/...) was one of the first features that attracted me. They are challenging the norms of design apps and rethinking how you can work more efficiently.I love Figma. Just switched my team over from Sketch.
This is still in the early stages but I like what I see so far! As a product manager constantly working with designers, I can now open design files on PC for quick screen views, exports, etc. If that's your primary need this will be perfect!! If you are looking for a full featured Sketch replacement, it's not there quite yet.
Some personal opinions: A bit laggy. Also you can not lock something horizontally/ vertically by holding SHIFT. Some expected keyboard shortcuts doesn't exist (like ctlr+L to lock). Zoom-in & out speed could be a bit faster.
- Ivan made this productHidden feature: the Windows Store version supports editing of .sketch files. It's not official, not in the description, and not on the Windows Store screenshots.Depending on what you're trying to do, you may also want to check out this Sketch viewer for Windows. If your concern is collaborating with dev, who work on Windows machines, Lunacy could help you.
When we wrote it, we thought it's cool. An year after, we see that we've completed 90% of the features that Sketch supports, with the sole exception of the Symbols. Let's see how we see our version 3.0 in one year more.
Particularly, the best alternative to Sketch on Windows, until this moment, is Adobe XD.
I try use Lunacy, but it's heavy for memory.
- Adobe Experience Design for sure. Works with Windows an MacYes - also know that you need to be running Windows 10
- Affinity is new cool kid for Mac and it provides lot of features what you get from Sketch. At first it was released only for Mac and the team released a windows app as well.Have been using this to design my app for the last few months. Very powerful and feature rich. Definitely recommend.
- I've started using Gravit Designer. It's cross platform, mac, windows and linux and it's free. Has the same feel as sketch but doesn't have all the features yet. It's getting closer with each release.
I love everything about InVision.
Since I started using it 3-4 years ago they improved so many things and added really useful features. They collaborate with so many top designers of the industry that they always know what we want. I really appreciate the effort, time and love they put into their products and it's always fun to use them.
The tools I use on a weekly basis are:
InVision (Webapp); Freehand; Craft; Designbetter.co
All my designers loves the service, but I am struggling to use it, I find its UI/UX uncomfortable and not obvious. The most terrible is a mobile version of the web-site, extremely slow.
