    Inkscape icon
    • Sketch is a UI design tool and its interface, feature set, and workflow are optimised for that. Inkscape is a (barely) adequate vector editor, but lacks even basic features necessary for UI design, such as pixel preview, multiple art boards, etc. Guest • Jan 2017 • 44 agrees and 12 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Inkscape is a Vector program with barebone features, no workflow for web-design at all and the only way to make things pixel perfect is with a plugin that barely solves the issue. Guest • May 2017 • 19 agrees and 5 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Too hard to use. Sketch is fast-learning. chipthrasherDec 2016 • 23 agrees and 11 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Inkscape is a vector editing tool for simply editing SVG files. Sketch is a vector editing tool for creating and designing digital interfaces for applications, websites, etc. Sketch has tools to create responsive interfaces, a complex plugin system, and an interface that is well done and easy to use. No offense, but Sketch is light years ahead of Inkscape as a tool for design. Guest • Jun 2017 • 3 agrees and 1 disagrees Disagree   Agree

    • Buggy, I get it's free and the developers have done an amazing job for free software but it really isn't good enough to replace sketch if you want to use it for a daily tool that your job depends on. If you your a product owner or an engineer and just want to get an idea put together it's fine. But it's not a UX designer's main tool solution.

    • Vectr is free, (there is a paid option but they are very generous to offer free tiers), and excellent. Small footprint but you can do everything. My only gripe is they do not let you add arrows as in a vector drawing programme, but that's a non-issue, as you can add arrows in other ways. It's a beautiful programme, I strongly support this. arindambasuAug 2017 • 1 agrees and 1 disagrees Disagree   Agree
