Last week Sketch 3 was released. I’ve long owned Sketch, but never really used it — I didn’t get. I own Acorn, Photoshop CC, Pixelmator, and Sketch — and I have to say while most of these apps seem to be the same thing, Sketch is different.

I’ve been consulting on more apps lately and that often necessitates me ‘sketching’ out an idea of how the app should look. It’s just hard to describe things in words, when a mockup can state everything more clearly. This used to take me a lot of time to do in Acorn/Pixelmator/Photoshop, but with Sketch I am have been firing them out like it’s nothing.

I am loving Sketch.

One thing I will note, is that like all the apps listed (save Photoshop), Sketch offers very limited control of typography. I really wish that weren’t the case, but sadly it is.

Sketch is $79 on the Mac App Store.
