You’ve read that right, Apple recently updated the Apple Watch design resources to include Sketch files (alongside the Photoshop version). It’s impressive how an app by such a small team (compared to Adobe) could rise so quickly to being the gold standard for UI design. It really goes to show how great of a piece of software it is1. I also feel like we’re at a turning point. Unless Adobe does a complete 180 on its product stategy and focuses on what customers really want, the ship has sailed. Photoshop will just keep loosing relevance amongst designers.
Plus, I’m sure Apple really likes the fact that it’s only available for OS X.↩
