finally I don't need a Mac to work with our designers

Pros:

free and windows compatible

Cons:

it's just a beta

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.

Pros:

It's on PC! Works like butter.

Cons:

Beta. Missing some important features. (But I'm sure they will be fixed soon)

TODO: - Improve the speed of zoom, especially for documents with large/many bitmaps - Find some better list of shortcuts that includes Ctrl+L - Check Shift lock - I'm positive we have it; I've just checked and it's still there. Could you record a short video of the test case?

Sometime ago I just dreamed about such software, now it's real. Thanks guys, you're awesome!

Pros:

working on PC

Cons:

lack of supported features

Thank you! You inspire. Which features do you miss most?

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.

Pros:

It works on Windows! Opens sketch files, provides CSS and YAML as well as most basic Sketch functionality. Portable version available. FREE

Cons:

A bit laggy and keyboard shortcuts are not all the same. It's still in beta though. This will only get better.

Justin, you know how to motivate! Thank you. Quick update: the next release addresses the shortcuts. The release after will bring speed as we'll start to cache the unaffected objects as the bitmaps.
