InVision Studio calls itself "the world's most powerful screen design tool" and they are probably right. Without having even tested it, this looks like it is going to be the biggest design tool for website designers since Sketch came along. For those that don't know, Sketch has completely taken over from Adobe's Photoshop as the tool of choice for designing websites.

Sketch vs InVision Studio
Just looking at the screenshots of the InVision Studio app, it looks very similar to Sketch and that is done on purpose. It's meant give a similar layout and environment that Sketch users are used to so they don't feel like they have to endure another learning curve for a new tool.

InVision Studio for Mac & Windows
The big knock against Sketch is that it is a Mac only application. It really feeds into the whole concept of designers being snobby and thinking that Mac is the only computer that should be used for design. Mac computers are inherently expensive and it just seems like Apple is doing a better job of messing up their new Macbooks and iPhones that these software companies should make their app available on more platforms. InVision Studio is rolling out their app for Mac and Windows computers.
