You may have heard of Figma recently. It’s a web-app (with a hybrid-native version) that aims to solve the same problem Sketch solves: make it easy and fast to design and prototype software. When two apps solve the same problem, why would you want to learn to use the new thing when you know how to use the old one? In this article I will go into why, and when, you should consider Figma, even if you already know how to use Sketch. Why you should think about Figma The first question we have to tackle is: what does Figma do better than Sketch, and do those aspects matter to you? The answer is that both are solid applications and they each have their pros and cons. So when you evaluate which one to use, we have to look at the strengths and weaknesses of both, and judge them based on your needs.
