    • 1) almost a clone of Sketch, 2) distributed by Freemium pricing model which makes it more appealing 3) can multiplayer :D choomaqueJul 2017 • 10 agrees and 3 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • As of today, Figma is my go to when I don't have Sketch available and the UI and everything is very similar. It also lets you import .sketch files. Only drawback is bitmap editing which is limited right now. luckyshotMar 2019 Disagree   Agree

    • Very poor interface to start even a small project Guest • Nov 2019 • 0 agrees and 1 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • it's free and does the basics of ux/ui design and stencils/models are free as well Guest • Sep 2017 • 13 agrees and 2 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. Guest • May 2018 • 7 agrees and 4 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Pencil is projected to design apps and sites. That proposal lets Pencil a valuable alternative to Sketch. joaozitopoloJan 2018 • 5 agrees and 3 disagrees Disagree   Agree

  • Inkscape

    Inkscape is a professional vector graphics editor for Linux, Windows and macOS. It's free and open source.

    • 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 • 64 agrees and 23 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 • 37 agrees and 13 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Inkskape is a vector drawing app, while sketch is much more specified in UI design Guest • Apr 2019 • 2 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • They have completely different purposes, only the underlying vector graphics technology is similar. Guest • Dec 2018 Disagree   Agree
    • Too hard to use. Sketch is fast-learning. chipthrasherDec 2016 • 32 agrees and 21 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Inkscape is a vectorial tool, Sketch has specialized options for screen design. tigerfenixJun 2018 • 2 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Not exactly designed for UI design Guest • Apr 2018 • 2 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Because it free and works on Windows! romamakoveyMay 2018 • 0 agrees and 2 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 • 5 agrees and 1 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Inkscape is not comparable to Sketch. Guest • Feb 2017 • 2 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree

    • 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
