Sketch 3.0(

    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.
