    This is one of those times a downvote would be nice. This is such a great company putting in boatloads of work on a david and goliath mission. I'd pay $50 just to support them continuing work and not even get anything in return. Don't think of just yourself, think of the real people working at this company that need to continue getting paid to continue working on this.

    Also, as someone else pointed out, this entire app is equal to using photoshop/illustrator for one month. That is absurd.

      So that's why it's worth a down vote? They are doing a great job indeed. But "But I don't think a little update is worth another 50$. If they changed more I defo would have bought it.".

        They changed a huge amount. I just bought and downloaded it, and it is a massive update. There aren't a lot of shiny new features to flaunt, but almost everything about the interface has been fiddled with and improved, as well as a huge stream of stability increases and bugfixes. $50 for this is cheap in my view, after playing with it a bit.

        EDIT: here's a video that goes over some of the changes. you'll quickly see how how of an update this was:

          Agreed. Purchased, installed, reading through everything- this is a pretty big update.

          I had the beta. The only thing that I love is the Teehan+Lax symbol thingy. But that's not worth the money. I hope you guys enjoy using Sketch!

          I actually made a DN reader app for the Design+Code contest in the Sketch 3 Beta, feel free to use it and explore Sketch with it.

          (The close icon feels pretty odd, but that's an Layervault preview issue I think.)

            Hahah I love how this comment is at -1 points even though that doesn't seem possible for normal users. Good, it deserves it. "Not worth the money" is so absurd of a justification here.

            Just to continue hitting this same point over and over, you must understand that bohemian coding employs real people to make this product, who need to be paid in order to continue working on it. Second, if you compare this with the only competitor, creative cloud, the price difference is so gigantic that it is truly absurd. Third, if you are a freelancer, it's pretty likely that one single hour of your work covers the price of this product. Never mind thinking about the hundreds and hundreds of hours of hard work that have gone into making this what it is.

            I guess value is different for everyone though!
