    Why don't you compare it to Adobe Fireworks instead?

    Fireworks was discontinued in 2012.

      Believe it or not, people still use Fireworks. That is, until they discover Sketch, a better alternative.

      Fireworks is the only product comparable to what Sketch does. Illustrator and sketch are comparing Apple to Oranges.

        To be fair, people compare them because some people do use Illustrator for UI design.

          Also Sketch and Illustrator are both vector based so it is a very logical comparison. Both programs have similar tools (pen, rectangle, rounded corner rectangle tools), and similar boolean operations as well.

          I am starting to use Sketch and I do love it. However, I have run into some really nasty bugs when doing Boolean ops and also it tends to get really slow and hangs on me.

          I love the way Sketch has multiple export options and the way it integrates with InVision.

          Needless to say I am not unlearning neither Photoshop nor Illustrator anytime soon but I will continue to increase my skillset in Sketch as well. Hope it keeps getting better.
