Apple Design Award Winner, 2012
Sketch is a designers' dream toolbox. Specifically created for designers, it powers a beautiful interface and powerful tools. Tools every designer will appreciate. Here's one feature - multiple shadows per layer. Making beautiful graphics isn't challenging anymore. We set out to build a better app for graphic designers. Not to copy - rather to improve.
The vector tools and basic shapes are a fantastic starting point for any drawing, whether you design for web, icons, and more. Sketch has more advanced layer style options than you can dream of: multiple shadows, multiple fills, gradients, noise, blending, blur, and more. To top it off, Sketch has boolean operations to combine multiple shapes into much more complex ones - all of this is non- destructive. Forever.
Coming from the developers of Fontcase, text rendering is as good as it can get. Sketch also supports OS X's built-in versions and auto-saving. To ensure you'll never lose any files.
All this power is deliciously baked into Sketch's single-window interface. Everything is there, but only visible when you need it. A simple interface with seriously powerful tools.
Now everything is possible.

You can now select multiple items in multiple groups simultaneously
Groups can now be configured to click-through; taking away a lot of double-clicks in the process
Command+click now immediately selects layers buried deep in groups
Artboards are now actual Groups themselves; they show up in the canvas and group your layers in the layer list as well.
Slices are now attached to their Artboards and move around with them and show up in the layer list when exporting.
Greatly improves SVG Importing and Exporting support
Various Performance improvements
A New mini toolbar gives access to common-used settings such as alignment and more
Alpha Masks; Give a mask a semi-transparent gradient and it will be used to for the masked layer's opacity
Copy CSS Attributes now also includes Font, Size, Letter and Line
New line shape tool. Much requested, so; enjoy
Exporting in Sketch now renders text using sub-pixel anti-aliasing (vs normal anti-aliasing)
Enabling Inner Shadow on Text objects no longer makes them jump
Fixes the Screen Color Picker for dual monitor setups
When dragging objects around in layer list, the list now scrolls if you get close to the top or bottom
After changing text attributes such as colour or font in the text inspector, the blue selection now hides temporarily to give you a better look at how it fits in with the rest of your artwork
Improves naming of new layers (No longer you'll get Rectangle 312 etc)
Images now properly support overlaying gradients
Vector point rounding is now more logical and available in the mini toolbar
Adds a new tool to align one or more objects in a grid
Artboards now have preset sizes to choose from
Bitmap images now crop to fit their minimal size after cutting parts out of them
Changes to vector editing: The Command key no longer draw straight lines but is now used to draw a straight line after a curved one has been placed, like people expect. Similarly, can no longer be used to make a selection; use the toolbar button instead. Instead it now draws straight lines
Shadows under semi-transparent fills are now clipped
When opening a document Sketch will warn you if any of the fonts in the document are missing
Saving Pattern Fills now results in smaller file sizes
Improves text-on-path rendering
Layers in the slice tool no longer appear in reverse order
