I've been using Figma as my main tool lately and I'm loving it. I still need Sketch for a few things here are there (like getting things done offline, but that's rare). I just really love prototyping now that I can see changes immediately (no waiting for exports or a server to sync). I also love it when I can collaborate with a writer as I design screens. We used Figma to design the App Store screenshots for Tonight! New York (also on Product Hunt) and it was so fun and productive.Pros:
The collaboration and prototyping features in Figma are game changing. I didn't think I needed collaboration, but I did!Cons:
...no offline app (yet?)
Tried Figma as Sketch replacement since i lost my MacBook.Pros:
- Easy to Use
- Cloud based Storage
- Have all basic vector need
- Zeplin integration which is plus for meCons:
Sometimes the app is freeze after doing some medium to hard task.
Nothing wrong with my Laptop but the issue come from UWP i think
They also have a integration with Zeplin and you can export all your layers into Zeplin.
Works very well. You can export every layer or group/object as JPG/PNG/SVG.
You can copy every text layer by just selecting it and Ctrl+C (copy as text), you can see the fonts and colors for text layers as well.
You can also share your projects with your team by email invite and public link.Pros:
Everything looks exacly like in SketchCons:
Uses a lot of RAM memory and sometimes breaks and needs a refresh
My goto wireframing tool. There are things in Sketch (organising and nesting/overriding components) and Adobe XD CC (the grid) i would like to see in Figma but the overall power and focus far outweighs a few shortcomings.Pros:
Platform independent. Sketch on steroids.Cons:
But I think they are still implementing some features. Above all, it's really a great alternative :)Pros:
Nice, comes with almost all XD tools, easy to learn interfaceCons:
would be better if I can collapse the left tab. and also have a grid system like XD.
