This will be good news for a lot of graphic designers on the Mac. Bohemian Coding today released version 3.0 of its digital design app Sketch bringing new features and improvements. Here’s the list of features from Sketch 3:

NEW IN VERSION 3:
- Symbols, for reusing elements in your design
- Text Styles and Layer Styles, redesigned and unified for a better experience
- Redesigned inspector, giving you quicker access to everything
- Automatic Slices, export layers directly, without needing to set up manual slices
- Export multiple resolutions from a single slice, at any scale
- Improved PDF, EPS and SVG importing and exporting
- Speed, bug fixes and polish all around
- Presentation Mode, go full screen and hide all controls, perfect for showing off designs
- Improved bitmap editing with Magic Wand, Crop, Invert and Vectorize tools

The app is a paid upgrade so you won’t be able to move from Sketch 2 to Sketch 3 for free. Customers who bought Sketch 2 on the Mac App Store after March 1st, however, can email Bohemian Coding with their receipt and receive Sketch 3 at no cost.

Sketch 3 will be on sale from today until April 21st at $49.99 on the Mac App Store before it returns to its full price of $79.99.

  1. Hey!

    I just bought this on Feb 25, 2014.

    We’ll see if they upgrade me. Either way, it says on their website that whatever upgrades they provide, it will be outside the Mac App Store, and the upgrades won’t use iCloud syncing.

    Nice…

    • I’m in the same boat; I bought a copy on Feb 14th and I’ve emailed them and Apple’s App Store support as well.

      Oh, another fun discovery: what led me to discover the new version was that my app failed to update with an error code I hadn’t recognized. They have apparently removed the damn app from the appstore so if we do not get an updated version, we essentially have an obsolete app that I paid $1.36 a day for and used maybe 5 – 6 times.

    • To be fair this isn’t there fault. The Mac App store doesn’t let them give you the app for free and if not done via the mac app store it won’t support iCloud.

    • nowconcept says:

      Remember The Mac App Store doesn’t let developers change prices with codes or coupon passwords. That’s why the low the price in the debut of the app. That’s the upgrade price. Take it or leave it. That’s the Apple way!

  2. Looks like it’s no longer on sale as of April 21. That’s disappointing, as I was just going to click the purchase button.
