      Nope! I was at their event in Amsterdam and they said it will be free for all users (including enterprise ) with no strings attached.

      Sharing of protypes (more than 1 project ?) will continue to paid as it is now.

      ... I have to add though, that since this Invision, they can go back on their words and pretend they never said it.

    I really don’t understand what all the fuss about InvisionStudio is about! Yes all the preview videos looks cool and has a lot of functions that i would like Sketch to adopt, but if you are used to work with Invisions other services Projects, Freehand ect. I would be very sceptical to this app. I really don’t understand why Invision uses so much time on hyping Studio and creating UI kits, and not updating their core services that a lot of us are using every day – personally I’m much more excited to see what Invision 8 brings to their platform – because, Sketch (with its shortcomings) is a brilliant design tool, and at the moment I don’t need another one!

      I believe most of the excitement is from the prototyping side of the application and not the actual UI design tool.

      Even with the dozen or so prototyping tools out there, most of them can only do basic interactions or very difficult to use. If Studio can solve this problem at a go.. why not?

      I’m also a bit skeptical about the performance of the app but since this will be a native OSX/Windows app, they’ll have more control over features and performance than webapps. The again, it’s not like Sketch is bug free.

      For me the big draw will be how it handles interactions. If it delivers all that it promises then the transition from Sketch will be minimal.

      Let’s face it, Sketch is about UI; layout, patterns and work flow. If Studio is on par, I’m happy to make the switch. Any real heavy lifting is better suited to other applications.

    Comes with a free Twitter feed of reasons why it's not working right now.

      Yeah, they are not showing transparency. Sending out access to influencers. If they say hey we need a month more, i would say ok because we all know a good product needs its time. But to say hey it will be out in January 2018, and then send out invites only to influencers, removing any sign from page and video regarding the release time is bad communication. So i have big problems in believing invision now. Because i set a new project to start an february an animation intense project, perfect fit for invision studio. So now i have the problem to do it like before while i have less time for it.

        You planned a project based on a product you never used? Ballsy. :D

          Not really planed, but i would like have used it, like it sounds yo getmore creative time while using studio, ya know. I got more than 20 years of experience in design/tools. So switching between applications is no problem for me. But i don‘t like the intransparent experience that invision got. And i am not the only one who wants to start a project with studio. The invision experience its more appearance than substance for now.

          "Ballsy" Ha, just noting, this right here is why DN is 99.9999% male.

            What would the female equivalent be? Ovarish? Ovarious?

            Perhaps we need a browser extension that switches such adjectives randomly.

              Ideally if the word is gendered, you switch from a gendered word to one that isn't. So instead of ballsy, risky, daring, stupid, silly, adventurous, There are an endless amount of alternatives that aren't gendered, switching to a 'female' version would actually be worse.

                Oh I know, I was just having a laugh. It sometimes helps to see the absurdity of our language by flipping the genderism or what-have-you. Heck I try to avoid the term "mankind" because it isn't an accurate description of humanity.

        It hasn't been sent to only influencers - I've got my invite ;)

    This is a clever tactic. InVision currently makes $0 on people creating designs. Their entire business model is predicated on sharing and team dynamics. But allowing you to create designs for free (ON THEIR PLATFORM) you're essentially shovelling up-sell potential at them based on this existing business model. The more designs and prototypes you have in there, the stickier you are.

    Neato burrito. I personally like the disparate services approach we have now, though. Feels like I have more choice.

      I'm down to make the switch from Sketch which I love dearly so long as the product delivers from all the hype. From what I've seen, looks pretty slick. I imagine they'll have smart tips on migrating from Sketch/PS/XD/etc.

      On the other hand, if Sketch implemented prototyping so I don't have to hop into a tool like Principle or Protopie, I'm not sure what could be so much better to make me leave.

    And not bug-free. I'm still waiting for a satisfying Invision web experience. The product lags a lot, a often just crash, and I'm on an expensive brand new mac

    Will it though? Also does anyone know how multiple designers working on one file works in Studio?
