You guys are missing the point: beautiful doesn't count for shit if your idea is garbage.
This question shows a distinct lack of understanding of how development of an app works.
If you want to build a one-to-one duplicate of an existing app and backend service that is one thing. But, why would anyone use it?
If you want to build something entirely new, then you will have to go through a lengthy development process which will include:
You will likely go through many iterations with changes and upgrades along the way. It's why it is called "development". You develop something rough into something slick. It takes time, knowledge, and a lot of hard work.
Generally, outsourcing this kind of project to an external group doesn't work out because you end up paying through the nose for this long, drawn out process.
The correct question is: How much money do I need to start a business and support a development and marketing staff to get this off the ground?
The problem is that most people who want to build an app don't understand that what they actually should be building is a business.
Bought by InVision in 3..2..
But buying things leaves me feeling empty.
It's the lack of plugins that bothers me most. Global color replace is something I do often and I'd hate to have to do that manually.
Also, rebuilding all of my work files (literally hundreds of hours of work) would be incredibly tedious. I'd have to have a really, really good reason to do so. So far, Sketch is just fine.
It's being used today as a way to funnel designers into marketing channels. Lots of advertising and other such cruft.
Not so much really interesting discussion.
I'm building an online palette tool and having a way to easily export a native sketch format is a huge boon. Great to see!
Hahaha. All my public work is shitty.
Joke is on you. And me :(
I don't know why this isn't talked about more. I moved away from Windows because doing development work on that system was totally untenable. I want to work on Unix. MacOs is a good base, but I want hardware freedom (Apple is obviously not interested in producing hardware that fits my needs).
I'd like to move to Ubuntu, but design software is sorely lacking.
What about a Linux version?
I would be double the money just to be able to move from MacOS to Linux and not have to deal with Windows at all.
