    Jep +1 for System 2.

    Though the icons for new apps & services look better in System 1, but sure they don't fit together in this state.

  • Posted to What is this icon in sketch app? (bitmap icon + slice knife), Jul 31, 2018

    When you mark any asset as exportable you get the slice knife. It's just an indicator.

    Layers that have been made exportable will make themselves known in the Layer List, by displaying a small slice icon next to the layer preview.

    You can read more here: Make Exportable

    For the sake of completeness Claquette is another well designed screen recorder tool.

    I also use ScreenFlow, because of the dedicated editing inside the app.

    Maybe! But sadly these are just the inverted colors…don't know if this is a real thing.

    Definitely a nice thing to have a UI Kit from the creators itself, and also for Sketch! Though the Kit isn't that super comprehensive. The split in so many Sketch Files is a bit "confusing". I prefer one big Sketch file I can search in, to copy the elements I need.

    Also I miss some iPad specific content like Popovers or iPad Keyboards!

  • Posted to Any good DN iOS apps left out there?, Nov 07, 2016

    Good question!!

    I'm currently still using Designer News by MengTo, but it's neither universal nor under active development…the last commit is over a year old.

  • Posted to Is there an offline image saving app like Pinterest with the colour palette generation of Dribbble?, Oct 18, 2016

    Once upon a timer there was a nice app called Ember, wich is good for this purpose. You can search for colours, but not like dribbble with the colour palette on the side. Sadly it seems to be discontinued in development.

    Alternatively to Ember there is Pixave 2, but I'm not sure if it supports colour palettes. But at least it seems to be a nice offline image saving app!

  • Posted to How do you keep your Sketch Plugins up-to-date?, Oct 12, 2016

    You probably know Sketch Toolbox? It exactly what you're searching for, but sadly it seems like it isn't maintained anymore.

    Currently I'm checking my plugins by hand from time to time. Good tip btw!

    Thanks! :) I actually did this everything in Photoshop, because of the basic animations. But this was kind of a mess to do. So I would not recommend to do it in Ps for bigger scale. As louie solomon mentioned this effect can also be done in photoshop. I converted the video into single frames and converted every frame into bitmap, by hand. The interfaces are also drawn by hand. ;)
