    I just want to throw this out there because this post is getting pretty negative - Sketch is awesome. The application has many amazing features that are much simpler to use than the competition. They add great new features all the time (Background blur... amazing.) but if some of these core features are added they could really move to the next level. Even though I can't use Sketch for everything, they have my full support and I use it whenever I can.

      I wouldn't call it negative.

      More like constructive feedback. It's great, it will be awesome in a few years.

        "Why can't they get basic features right" and "you shouldn't charge people for a faulty product" is pretty negative. Sketch is still missing what I consider a key feature, and because of that I won't use it, but that doesn't mean I'm not tremendously impressed with what they've built… how close they've become in quality to Adobe products over just a couple years and with a tiny team. Better even, in several ways (background blur, asset exporting…). And for the price! C'mon, there's just no way this isn't a good deal at $50, kludgy guides or not. Every tool has compromises.

        I'm with you in that I'm waiting for it to become a tool that suits my needs better before making the switch, but it's obvious it's already a tool that suits the needs of many, and does it very well.
