Overall Opinion: There are some bugs in this software that make is a bit annoying to work with, but most of them are fairly innocuous in the long run and don't really affect the end results. For instance, if you are adding text to a project, in some cases the text will disappear from the scene while you are actually typing it. Once you've finished typing, the full sentence appears. This is simply a small bug with the real-time rendering process. In short, the reason why Sketch could even come close to the functionality, or at least the utility, of Photoshop is that it has some features that Photoshop actually doesn't have. For instance, Adobe only recently added some new art boards to Photoshop, but those same features have been in Sketch long enough that the community around the software is already at the development stage for various plugins to use with Sketch. The goal of some of these plugins is to integrate code structures and live data into the Sketch platform. If you operate a team that performs something that is artistic but doesn't require any photo-editing tools, Sketch is the ideal solution. Since it doesn't have those photo-editing features, it is much easier to use Sketch in the design of user interface modules. For example, Photoshop can not import or open SVG files, and the drag and drop function in that software is fairly unreliable. In essence, you can use Photoshop to perform the same UI design functions as Sketch, but Sketch gives you the power to perform those functions faster and with more efficiency. Unfortunately, if you have any photo-editing needs that go along with what you need to design a UI, you'll need something like Photoshop. It is highly unlikely that any such tools will be added to the Sketch software any time soon. Many users would love to be able to avoid the new monthly subscription costs associated with Adobe premium software, but it will be some time before the functionality of both Photoshop and Sketch is found in a single app. In reality, Sketch is only a viable tool as a UI designer because there is no dedicated software suite on the market that does the job. There are several things that a new design tool could use that other tools don't have, like design that is oriented around objects. It would also be nice to see an app with a user interface that matches the coding of the app itself. For now, Sketch is the most viable option for UI design on the market, and with the right tweaks, it could become one of the most notable artistic apps in the world. It might even usurp Photoshop one day.
Pros: Excellent Artistic Potential
Cons: Annoying Bugs
Today, I would like to compare SketchApp and photoshop. You might be thinking that photoshop is a clear winner but SketchApp is not even competing with photoshop, it has got it's own audience....
