    Also.. this seems very expensive for a tool that sits on a specific part of your toolchain. Even sketch doesn't cost that much. Is it just me or are tools nowadays shamelessly trying to take advantage of the tool crisis we are in? 150€/Year for this seems way too much. I think the 80€ for Sketch are a bit hard, but they seem fair because it does basically everything or UI design, besides animation. How is paying 150€/Year for a tool that closes the gap that sketch left in the workflow worth it, if the chances are rather high, that sketch itself will close this gap at some point?

    Am I the only one who does not want an animation tool to export any code? I just want a tool that allows me to animate my sketch interface... I code it myself anyway.

    I can hardly find a use case for this in the industry. But that might just be my limited personal experience.

    Sara Wachter-Boettcher, probably originally Wächter-Böttcher at some point. Such a great name.

    without trying to discredit your effort, I would like to see a bit more sincerity when it comes to products and reasonable logic for pricing too. As far as I understand, you have essentially created a fancy theme on top of gmail.

    I personally don't think this is nearly worth the price you are asking for and most definitely not worth a monthly pricing model whatsoever, even if its just very small.

    But tech is ruled by capitalism, and it doesn't matter. As long as you find someone who pays, all is well. And ultimately, looking at such an extreme price point, that must be the only goal after this.

    Plus $14 per month is optimistic for a fancy front-end to Gmail.

    It literally is that.
