We Need Sketch for the iPad Pro

    And the lack of trials is inconsequential since you could easily do a trial within the app that would provide access to all tools for a period of time.

    This is forbidden in the App Store Review Guidelines

    2.9 Apps that are "demo", "trial", or "test" versions will be rejected. Beta Apps may only be submitted through TestFlight and must follow the TestFlight guidelines.

    11.9 Apps containing content or services that expire after a limited time will be rejected, except for specific approved content (e.g. films, television programs, music, books)

      Well they could launch the app free and do an in-app purchase to upgrade. I think this guideline is here to ensure that there are not 1.000 free and pro versions of an app, but if sketch would just be called sketch and would require an inapp purchase after 25hours that would be ok in terms of apples guidelines. I'm not sure however if it would increase the conversion.

      Sketches does the demo / trial functionality fairly well if you want to see an example.

      Really though if anyone wants a powerful layout / vector tool for the iPad a few already exist:

      • iDraw
      • Concepts
      • Protosketch (launching soon?)
