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.

Take a look at the table below to see how a subscription compares to a Mac-only license. See this help article on how to switch to a subscription-based account.
