    I really don’t understand what all the fuss about InvisionStudio is about! Yes all the preview videos looks cool and has a lot of functions that i would like Sketch to adopt, but if you are used to work with Invisions other services Projects, Freehand ect. I would be very sceptical to this app. I really don’t understand why Invision uses so much time on hyping Studio and creating UI kits, and not updating their core services that a lot of us are using every day – personally I’m much more excited to see what Invision 8 brings to their platform – because, Sketch (with its shortcomings) is a brilliant design tool, and at the moment I don’t need another one!

      I believe most of the excitement is from the prototyping side of the application and not the actual UI design tool.

      Even with the dozen or so prototyping tools out there, most of them can only do basic interactions or very difficult to use. If Studio can solve this problem at a go.. why not?

      I’m also a bit skeptical about the performance of the app but since this will be a native OSX/Windows app, they’ll have more control over features and performance than webapps. The again, it’s not like Sketch is bug free.

      For me the big draw will be how it handles interactions. If it delivers all that it promises then the transition from Sketch will be minimal.

      Let’s face it, Sketch is about UI; layout, patterns and work flow. If Studio is on par, I’m happy to make the switch. Any real heavy lifting is better suited to other applications.
