Though it's well designed, the product isn't ready for paying customers by a long margin.

Pros:

Addresses a big need - organization of design files

Cons:

Too many bugs, very slow, high resource usage

Version 0.66 currently. Use with caution, I've had nothing but headaches with this software

Pros:

Source Control for Sketch files, pretty novel

Cons:

Crashes constantly, confusing interface, TONS of bugs

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.

Pros:

Very cool VCS for design tools

Cons:

only for sketch, INCREDIBLY resource intensive, very buggy

@matpreau We have set up abstract for our design team. But, the support reponse is really slow. No answers, yet.

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.

Pros:

Easy to manage product design projects based on Git technology

Cons:

They need to grow faster.

Support Adobe files.

We are having a 8 person team on abstract working on big projects, and lately the abstract performance is so bad, I really don't know what to do but rant everywhere. We are working on very time sensitive project but syncing, opening file, even deleting branch is too slow that I we couldn't continue the work for day!!!!!! I love the idea of abstract, and I think this is the only right way to collaborate in a UI design team, but till you guys fix your issues, I can't recommend you guys to anyone, only can hold our pain of not being able to completely get rid of abstract while having to pay for it....
