Nice, but ... no scrum board ?
Those are dev specific feature introductions. I guess what Brennan was referring to, and what most of the people were looking forward to, were direct consumer innovations. Or are you going to use ARkit or ML directly ?
Now, if we only could use that code for full featured production apps, we would go full circle. :)
BTW: How's about component-focused project design ?
Sorry guys, but I don't have any issues with this implementation of a full page scroll jacking, as it's implementation is well done, quick, smooth and really underscores an excellent full screen experience. Well done !
I haven't tried out the App yet, but I really really like the dark theme and the seemingly rich, adaptive interface. (vs sketch always to bright default interface)
Let's just say they badly needed this.
Is there still an opportunity to get into the VIP line ? :)
Hello, I'm a designer and I think you wrote this sassy comment because everything you wanted to say had already been written.
But seriously, people (designers) should be allowed to openly discuss the future of the tools they need to make a living without getting mocked.
Everything can just improve from a living, active and open discussion.
I can just agree:
We think a fairer approach is for everybody to get the same period of free updates, no matter when they purchased the app.
Because, let's say they would release Sketch 4 traditionally with a $99 price tag, but you had just purchased Sketch 3 six months ago and then feel the need to get 4, you would be paying 99/6 months vs. a user who has Sketch 3 already for 2 years which is 99/2 years: which means the cost/productivity revenue is way less. It just doesn't make sense for a user buying high numbered version software and I think the devs realized that and actually came up with a very clever subscription model that actually rocks, because no matter when you get the software - you GET THE SOFTWARE (which you can actually use as long as you want) & 1 year of FREE UPGRADES.
Don't confuse this with Adobe's way of subscription, which basically says: "If you stop paying us, you won't be able to use our software AT ALL anymore !"
BUT to be fair, I must add they should then probably half their price to $50. Why? Because traditionally as they wrote themselves on their blog, they would release a new version every 2 years. Which means when you had bought the app on release, you would pay: 99 / 2 = $49 per year & we still could use it after 2 years.
If instead of $50 the new price of the subscription model will still be $99 for the software & 1 year of free updates, it's just a hidden price increase on Sketch.
