I have been using Photoshop since forever on my designs. But I recently was introduced to [Sketch App](http://www.bohemiancoding.com/sketch/ “”) by Bohemiancoding. So far i’m loving it. It’s super fast and intuitive to learn. It’s all vector based which is perfect for creating svg’s. I’m currently running the beta version and there are a few bugs here and there especially when scaling complex shapes or groups but nothing that Photoshop doesn’t struggle with anyway.
To be honest I feel at the moment that i’d quite happily swap Sketch app for Photoshop. There are a few things I would love to have in Sketch App to make it a complete replacement, things like layer and group styles, but I heard these are in development – speaking of development the app is updated every other day with bug fixes and new features, it’s for sure well supported. It’s £34.99 which is nothing in comparison to Photoshop…
I created some vector based social icons using Sketch feel free to download them there are .png .pdf .svg .esp ever the orginal .sketch file for those who have it! [http://www.neilorangepeel.com/free-social-icons/](http://www.neilorangepeel.com/free-social-icons/ “”)
Anyone else tried Sketch App? Do you think it could compete with PSMarch 12, 2013 at 12:24 pm #127900Paulie_DMember
We tend to use Photoshop as a ‘genera;’ website “design” / mock-up tool but that isn’t what Adobe actually designed it for.
Adobe will tell you that’s why they have Illustrator/Fireworks/PS…hence, the Creative Suite.
General vector image are the forte (including export to SVG) of, obviously, Illustrator.March 12, 2013 at 2:55 pm #127929TheDocMember
Our designer just switched over to using Sketch. He demo’d it for me. I can’t wait to be able to work from it.March 13, 2013 at 2:10 am #128003March 13, 2013 at 3:23 am #128008CodeGraphicsParticipant
Downloaded the Try version, but cant see the setup.March 13, 2013 at 4:24 am #128013
Are you on a Mac or PC? I believe its a Mac only app. The developers are super active on twitter so maybe hit them up for help? [@sketchapp](https://twitter.com/sketchapp “”)March 13, 2013 at 5:08 am #128014CodeGraphicsParticipant
