    The interface design is amateur at best. I expected more from an app that supposedly caters to ‘professional’ designers.

    I quite like the interface. They decided to stick with a lot of simple, native UI elements as well as Apple-recommended and styled toolbar icons. This makes the app immediately approachable and understandable for anyone used to working in Mac apps. On the surface things may look simple, but there is a lot of functionality and many details tucked away.

    It should also be noted that Sketch won an Apple Design Award for their UI, so, take that as you will :)

    the text panel still lacks support for opentype, alternates, glyphs, etc.

    View › Show Fonts, click gear icon, choose Typography… Advanced Font Features

      I'm aware of those options…unfortunately they still lack some advanced features when working with type. Illustrator, inDesign and even Photoshop have full featured settings for working with type…and they should, considering typography is at the forefront of good design.
