    Yeah, because $50 is such a great expense for a tool that's supposed to make your professional work life easier.

    I'm quite happy with their decision to make it a paid update and I didn't even use Sketch 2 very much.

      haha lol, didn't expect so much fuss about my post. Most of the peeps who use Sketch are just fanboys, I see Sketch as a hipster program. I liked it but IMO they changed not enough to update from 2 to 3. I have been using Sketch 2 quiet a while in the beginning, but it won't defeat Photoshop for me.

      Feel free to use and buy it, guys are doing a great job. But I don't think a little update is worth another 50$. If they changed more I defo would have bought it.

        It seems software developers cannot win.

        When the Creative Cloud subscription service was unveiled, people complained that they just wanted to buy and own a license to a given version of an application; one released in yearly cycles with upgrade prices in the triple digits and with a handful of new features of the calibre found between Sketch 2 and 3.

        So a small team disrupts the design industry with a nimble application, listening to customers and continuing to support it with improvements over the course of 2 years.

        Then they release a major update with improvements of at least the calibre Photoshop CS6 to CC represented, and release it for a comparatively affordable price, and people still complain.

        It's interesting to see designers commoditising the product of a small, hard-working team of software designers and developers. I'd have thought designers—of all people—would be on the same page about the value of our work.
