Avocode Pre-order: Anyone got onboard?

    The Avocode beta video gives me the impression that if I am already using Sketch, I don't need Avocode.

    Sketch already has a great slice/export feature. Sketch can also extract CSS as well.

    I'm going to hold off until I learn more about Avocode and read what others have to say, if its favorable, I'll download a trial and give it a try.

      Pretty much what we decided on too. Using Sketch already makes exporting assets a breeze, plus about 90% of our designs can be replicated in code alone, while the rest is more interaction heavy and needs extra attention anyhow.

      Certainly an interesting tool, but not worth changing our workflow over right this moment.

      Yep, Same here. I got all excited watching the video and then realized Sketch has been providing this for a while.

      This is great though for teams and people who have to use photoshop.

      In the same boat - I'm finally making the switch to Sketch after being obstinate for so long. The ability to export things is key... all of which is built in to Sketch (and seemingly some of the new Adobe companion tools). I can't see any rationale for paying multiple subscriptions for functionality I get in Sketch for >$100.

      I used the Avocode beta, and I love the guys who made this, too... from CSSHat to Enigma, they've created some tremendous Photoshop workflow enhancers. Also the fact that there's no windows version... wtf, guys. I realize a lot of designers are on mac, and there's increasing numbers of devs moving to mac, but the VAST MAJORITY of developers I've worked with are on Windows machines. That's never going to change. None of my devs here were able to even try the beta out with me on any of our projects. No traction = no uptake. Dead on arrival. What a waste.

      In all, I just feel like this project is months behind and as a result has missed the boat tremendously here.
