Well today I’m glad to share here a cool tool that could be a good replacer for Sketch, it’s called Sigma and it assumes to be the first interface design tool with real-time collaboration.

 

Interface design tool with real-time collaboration

Figma collaboration features

Very similar to Sketch this powerful tool is browser-based and because of that it naturally becomes multi-platform (Windows, Mac, Linux).

Import Sketch files.
Another important detail that could make the difference is the possibility to import Sketch files, this could be very useful for those that don’t have a Mac since Sketch for the moment only works there.

Vector Networks is the Figma innovation to deal with paths. Instead of using paths like other tools, Figma is built on what they call vector networks, it’s compatible with paths but offers more flexibility and control.
