    I really like using it - it's simply, definitely faster than I am in PS for putting together concepts and wireframes.

    That said, I'd love to see future versions incorporate more features that third-party tools are used for. I'm starting to have a love/hate relationship with Invision and the Craft plugin, because the frequency with which they push updates (multiple times a week) makes me feel like they are not QA'ing updates well before they push them. I've got team members who have Sketch completely lock up if they update both Sketch and the Craft plugin. It's weird.

    If you're not using Invision's Craft plugin, GET IT.…

    Especially if you're working with a team, it offers a lot. I'm trying to work on a new rapid prototyping process at our company, and the Craft plugin will be a big part of that.

    I could go on and on, but one thing i like about it is the ability to use a shared Library of symbols, colors, and font styles. I have a master Sketch file that contains original symbols, patterns, etc. and it serves as the master copy for the Library. If symbols change, they change in that file then push out to the Library, which automatically updates for anyone using the same Library.

    It's a great feature considering Sketch itself offers nothing like it, and certainly no collaborative tools like Axure offers.
