    I think you are mistaking the fact that the collaboration feature is available for its actual use. I have worked collaboratively on many Google Docs but rarely does this collaboration happen simultaneously.

    But be fair, even if it IS there, no one outside Adobe's (and other vectors tools) product team has the slightest idea what "use non-zero winding fill rule" means or how it works.

    I was hoping you show up in the thread! You have a point, not all is new, but the ability to attach more than 2 lines to a single point is the killer here. But I sense a bit of defensiveness in your post which reinforces my feeling that what these guys are up to is big. Anyways, I can't wait to see what Skala has to offer. Truly exciting times ahead!

    High fidelity mocks are just that, mocks. I work with a visual designer who takes those mocks and creates the actual designs from them. I am not suggesting anyone else should do it, this is an experiment, and I must admit that I am in a very specific position to do so. But I also expect to run into obstacles that will push me back to my laptop in the future.

    Working on an iPad certainly has its constrains, but it works for me. I have never been a fan of having too many windows open on screen at the same time; on my computers I tend to put apps in full screen and use virtual desktops (Spaces) to separate each activity. So I rarely have more than a couple of windows open on screen anyway. But I completely see how other people would feel clostrophobic on iOS.

    And you are right, iOS is a constrained platform, multitasking is only in its infancy and many of the things that one takes for granted on a desktop can be hard or flat out impossible.

    The thing is, I didn't try to translate my desktop habits over to iOS, like I didn't ask Sketch to be Fireworks or my bike to be the metro.

    I am often browsing DN to discover and learn about the tools that other designers are using but there is little talk about iPad apps (probably for good reason) hence the very interesting discussions that we are having right here. :)

    I just got Grafio. I really like it, but the performance is just terrible. I don't see myself using it until they fix it.
