Benefits

A subscription offers the complete Sketch experience — including access to the Mac app, the web app, and a Workspace. Workspaces help you keep your work in sync and available anywhere so you can collaborate in real-time, receive feedback, share prototypes, send your designs for handoff and much more.

We continue to sell legacy Mac-only licenses for people who, for various reasons, can’t yet switch to the new model. If you choose to stick to the legacy Mac-only license model, you won’t have access to all these features.

Take a look at the table below to see how a subscription compares to a legacy Mac-only license.
