Reviews
  • Pros: 

    Time saver, Money saver, Faster than fast, Easy to use !

    Cons: 

    None

    I was in the beta test. I can tell you that they listen to designers but they also give us answers and clever solutions I think I am objective: there's no reason to not use it

    NEMROD has used this product for one month.
  • Pros: 

    saves time, fast, very useful, interesting new features in the pro version

    Cons: 

    How the plugin handles users with a home and a satellite computers.

    I have woven sketch runner into my daily design life but will sadly be leaving it due to how it handles users with more than one computer and how they handled the rollout of making this a paid extension re: without warning. It used to be the first thing I added to sketch when starting fresh on a machine but due to having a stationary work machine where I do the bulk of my work and a portable on the go machine I won't be using SR any longer as you need to buy a license per computer, because of this something that was once free would have me out 40 dollars due to my common setup. Wish it would let you split the license between the two machines since I can only ever use one at a time. Happy to support them but don't like this for something that is way and above the average price of a plugin for sketch.

Hello there 👋 Today we launched Runner Pro. A Sketch plugin that speeds up your design workflow. It was often referred to as a Spotlight / Alfred for Sketch. And that's pretty accurate. With this release, the search window got a big redesign. We think it will be assisting you to work even faster with the keyboard. We've also added a mini toolbar called RunBar, and a new search panel called Rider. With Rider you can search and apply overrides to Symbols. We're explaining the new features and the reasoning behind certain decisions more in-depth in our Medium article. Check it out here: https://medium.com/@rvroo/hello-... We hope you'll be able to design better, and faster, with the new Runner Pro! It comes with a 14-day trial, after which you can upgrade to continue using the full feature set. Give it a try, and we're curious to hear what you think!

I always recommend this plugin to other designers. When the Pro is released I bought it without a second thought. You already gave us 3 years of a free and brilliant plugin, you totally worth the support!

Thank you, Roy, Aby, and Team! I've been a fan and evangelist of Runner since your post-hackathon Beta launch, and have saved countless hours -- I'm excited to start using the Pro version. The power to search and apply overrides with Rider is likely to become my new time-saving feature, as our team builds out our Design System in Sketch. Also, kudos on your pricing that empowers everyone to benefit from some core productivity enhancements and charges a fair price for the additional value-add features -- this makes it easy for me to continue recommending Runner to next-gen Product Designers. If you're ever looking for user research participants, please keep me in mind.

@ux_adam Thanks for the kind words, and for being such a long time fan, Adam! And indeed, we wanted to keep an important part of the plugin for free, so that it's easy for new customers to get accustomed with it. We hope that works out how we expected. Thanks for spreading the word!

OMG it's beautiful. Thanks @rvroo and team for building this invaluable plugin and committing to feature enhancements, bug fixes, and general stability by having us give you a small fraction of the money we've saved using Runner. Someone on my team mentioned today that Runner was no longer free and I literally said that unless it costs more than $500, I'm absolutely forking over the cash.

@rvroo As an aside, I guess every designer is just busy these days or something cause dang, we don't really show out in support of our favorite tools. I would've expected this to shoot to the top of PH and there's literally no mention of it on DN.

@panoptican Thanks Jason! There has been some confusion on our pricing model. For what it's worth: when the 14-day free trial runs out, Runner Pro automatically reverts back to Free mode with Run and Install enabled. So for those that are not heavily relying on the other features, they can continue to use it without paying a buck! Thanks for that uplifting message, haha. It's great to hear some are willing to pay substantially ;)
