Sketch - Disordered Component Editor
Pixso - More Logical Component List

With a long components list and deep layers, you have to edit components carefully to avoid mixing up layers in Sketch.

By contrast, Pixso creates parent and sub variants for convenient editing: the sub variants will be changed along with the parent variants, but latter won't interfere with each other of the same grade.

use Pixso for effective design

"Having been using Sketch for a couple of years, and I have to recreate & compress a prototype and send it to all project members every single time if there's any changes made in it. It's truly a tedious process!"

Pixso fast handoff process

Sketch Manages Version History Disorderly
Pixso Stores Files Neatly & Updates Versions Instantly on Cloud

Usually, Sketch stores various versions locally, which eats up your storage and increases the data loss risks.

On the contrary, Pixso frees up your computer space by saving only one version to cloud. You can still roll back to any older versions freely. It also simplifies the developer handoff by link sharing method.
