Justinmind

Justinmind is great for UX/UI design. It helps my stakeholders understand design ideas and provide helpful feedback to our development team. It doesn't work great for high fidelity prototypes that rely on data-driven design. But product walk-throughs are great.

Sketch

Sketch has worked really well for us in projects where our team is internal (so we all have Mac machines), where there is a no need for distance real-time collaboration, and for making designs very fast and intuitively (which is helpful when you’re working with a product that involves lots of feedback incorporation). Sketch has been a little difficult for us in scenarios where we’re working with contractors who do not have Sketch, and when we need to be able to collaborate with project team members remotely. In these cases, we tend to find workarounds.

  • Extensive tools for both novice & advanced users.
  • Easy to navigate. Once you get used to the app, its easy to find what you are looking for.
  • Great Layout of the web application.

Sketch

  • The ability to create a custom symbol library and/or download available libraries for free or purchase make Sketch incredibly versatile and fast. Sketch eliminates the need for creating form fields and other UI elements by hand before using them in wireframe layouts. This saves so much time! The flexibility of symbols in Sketch allows for easily creating multiple width views of pages for responsive design.
  • Nesting symbols in sketch provide the ultimate flexibility in creating product UIs that have variations throughout a system. Nesting allows you to change aspects of a symbol on a per-instance need as opposed to forcing the creation of a unique symbol every time you need to display something a little different.
  • Multiple canvases on a page allow for creating multiple views of the same page based on conditional variables. Or for responsive design. There's no need to flip between pages in Sketch to do this. You can see multiple views as canvases in the same Sketch page. This helps greatly in keeping your Sketch files organized when you are dealing with a large system.
  • One of the key benefits to my work is Sketch's ability to work with 3rd party plug-ins and extensions. This allows me to immediately sync a single canvas or collection of canvases on a page with InVision, a tool my company uses to house all our UX documentation for feedback from stakeholders.

Cons

Justinmind

  • Although I like the monthly pricing model, it can become more expensive if you use it often as opposed to some competitors who offer lifetime licenses. But it depends on your usage.
  • There is a learning curve to learning how to prototype, but it isn't bad. Within a few days of poking around, I had a good handle on how to create simple prototypes.

Sketch

  • When working in a team, everyone must be on the same version of the software, otherwise there are a lot of glitches happening to the files that have been saved under an older version.
  • Some users are transitioning into making print-ready designs from Sketch and using it as the sole creative tool. I would like to see better print ready features integrated into Sketch.

At the end of the day, it's just simple. This goes a long way in design and goes even further when your talking productivity, intuitive design and turnover rate. It's not difficult to figure something out even if it's not something your directly familiar with, i.e. if you want to export in certain file formats or change the size of the canvas, you don't have to delay your end product trying to figure it out. Similar situations took me less than 30 seconds to solve without a Google search. That's Usability.

Sketch 8.6

The support is relatively decent, and they are quick to respond. However, their releases are not great. Sketch could use more robust testing of their software before releases. Over the last four years, I have had many days lost while waiting for Sketch to patch issues with their releases. It's actually a running joke in our office.So, support, good. Releases in the first place? Not great.

Alternatives Considered

Justinmind

I've used Adobe products like Photoshop and Illustrator to give lots of high quality details and depth to the mockups in the past for client meetings, or I have used Balsamiq for rough drafts for internal teams to show them a working idea on what needs to go on a screen. However JustInMind combines both and gives me the ease of use like Balsamiq and details like color and texture like Adobe Photoshop & illustrator to mockup a mobile application, saving me time, but not compromising on quality.

Sketch

Sketch is quite different from Adobe Photoshop. It's not built for photo editing, which is a good thing. It has just-enough in that area to get you by. Sketch is much more suited for creating websites as a design professional. The app is very fast, streamlined, and easy to use. I like the lightweight feel of Sketch as apposed to Photoshop—it doesn't have stuff I don't use.

Return on Investment

Justinmind

  • Faster design to market process. We can get sign-off on our prototypes and push to development faster than creating pages and pages of documentation.
  • Easy for stakeholders and developers to understand how requirements feed design options, and it's easy to provide several design options to figure out what our stakeholders like best.
  • Easy to do A-B testing with users. We can figure out much quicker what works and what doesn't from a usability standpoint.

Sketch

  • It greatly reduced my time in learning new tasks.
  • Has significantly reduced my time in creating products based on a template that was created by one of our designers.
  • It was an additional software to purchase (as opposed to continuing use of Adobe illustrator--which I already had), but the purchase has ultimately been worth it.
