Working on doing some hi-fi wireframing for a new one-page shopping experience component. Decided to step away from using Fireworks as a wireframing tool and use Sketch instead... and loving it!

Fireworks to Sketch..interesting move with Fireworks being so easy to work with. Interested in hearing about your experience here.
An app/site can be made successful or fail depending on wire-frames. Such important work. This looks good - good luck with the site!
@Jivaldi For some reason I've never been a fan of Fireworks. I don't do much wireframing anymore, but when I did, I used to use Fireworks because it was the only tool out there in a 'designers' toolbox that I could use to wireframe up websites and apps that was vector based (other than photoshop or illustrator).
Few month's back I ran into Sketch, and I've been waiting to use it ever since. A project at work finally came up where I could do some wireframes first, so I decided to give Sketch a shot. All I can say is I'm starting to love this program. It's fast, easy to use, and just makes sense. I hated the Fireworks interface and that's what mainly pushed me away. Well, and the fact it always crashed! But Sketch is just a delight to use. It's not perfect tho, I don't think any program is. I'm still learning and getting used to it. One thing that frustrates me the most is the amount of 'clicking' I have to to through to just edit shapes in groups. I can't seem to figure out how to just direct select a vector point. But it's a learning process as with any new software, and it just keeps getting better.
I love doing the UX & Wireframing side of projects, since I don't get to do it that often. This is basically going to be a custom Joomla component based on the concept of having a 1 page shopping & checkout experience.
Thanks @Mehmet Belet!
I'll be posting up full size shots soon.
@Ryan Belisle - yeah, not many people like Fireworks, but it's so easy to use that it seems to go well with wire-framing. I've been hearing more and more people talking about Sketch so I may have to check it out at some point. Appreciate the feedback.
