Overall Satisfaction with Sketch

I use Sketch personally at work. I believe that I'm the only person in my department who uses it, and I might be pretty much the only one in my organization who uses it. I use Sketch as my primary design tool for web sites and vector graphics for use on the web.
  • Vector graphics.
  • Website design.
  • Bitmap editing.
  • Better support for SVGs from other apps.
  • It allows me to quickly create mockups of designs.
  • Sketch is pretty inexpensive compared to any of the Adobe alternatives.
I was a big Fireworks user when it was discontinued by Adobe. At the time most people used Photoshop, but I've never liked Photoshop for web designs because it was built for photo editing, not vector graphics. I've heard Illustrator might be a pretty good alternative now, but it's also more geared toward print design. I've heard a lot of great things about Figma, but I have yet to give it a good try. Adobe XD is one that might also be worth checking out.
The company behind Sketch seems to be very active, updating and improving the app pretty frequently. Sketch has been gaining popularity, so there are a lot of users online who can help answer questions. Sketch has a pretty great plugin system as well, so there are some really good plugins available to make the app even better.

Would you buy Sketch again?

Sketch is great for pretty much any vector-based graphics. My primary use for Sketch is for designing websites, but it could probably also be used for print. I also use Sketch to export any graphics I need for the web. It can be set to export a graphic in multiple formats at the same time. They have been adding more collaboration features to Sketch recently, although I have not yet tried those features.
