    Great, a Mac/Sketch only tool built by a tiny team.

    That was a bit crappy. Even scrolling slowly the content doesn't load before the screen section has gone past and the clip-art style thumbs up and cyclist don't exactly scream premium product.

    I dig the message and format of dismissing concerns but there's not really killer on the page that iPhone does differently or better than a similarly premium Android device that would make me want to switch

    I actually rather like this, nice and stripped down aesthetic.

    Don't know if I'm alone in this but I find it a little weird when companies don't have an about us page that tells me who their team are and what they do. I like to see the people behind the company.

    In the UK we have Small Claims Court for smaller amounts. I assume other countries would have similar setups for just this sort of thing.

    The fees for making a claim are low and often the threat of making a claim has been enough for me to get payment in the past but it's an option if truly necessary.

    I'd always be wary of these kinds of shitlist even for the very worst clients - you literally have no idea what sort of legal ramifications there are from posting up these sorts of things.

    I love that scolling. I mean I hate it but I love that it's so weird my mind can't process it :D

    Nope.

    Never in the history of the universe has a loading screen "built anticipation"

    Are you saying that switching to Windows isn't a goodidea because they currently care about modern hardware, design and pro users more than Apple but might not in the future?

    I can't help but think they just stopped designing once the iPhone size looked alright.

    It really doesn't scale up or make much use of space on anything resembling a decent sized monitor which is a shame as their work is amazing.

    work

    Adobe XD on Windows is a dire car-crash of non-features. I was surprised to see it even got released with so few features compared to all the lovely videos of the Mac version.

    Sketch was a big miss for me swapping back to Windows but Affinity Designer has really filled that gap for the design stuff I do. It's probably not quite where Sketch is right now but it's a good option and certainly better than XD.
