      Gravit is a full-featured tool, that covers demands from simple image editing to multi-state UI design, including even master page support. It's available to all major platforms (Web included), and it's own UI is very friendly.

      Very poor interface to start even a small project

      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.

      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.

      Inkskape is a vector drawing app, while sketch is much more specified in UI design
      Negative comment about 2 years ago

      They have completely different purposes, only the underlying vector graphics technology is similar.
      Negative comment over 2 years ago

      tigerfenix Inkscape is a vectorial tool, Sketch has specialized options for screen design.

      Not exactly designed for UI design
      Negative comment about 3 years ago

      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.

      Vectr vs Sketch
      pros, cons and recent comments
      arindambasu 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.
