One new iOS application allows users of Sketch for Mac to mirror their projects on an iDevice. Called Sketch Mirror, the $4.99 universal application was built, as its developer explains, "to let you preview designs from the Mac on your iOS devices over Wi-Fi." In this respect, the new app is much like Hype Reflect, which appeared in the App Store last month. Developer Bohemian Coding explains:
You can swipe on your device to switch between pages and artboards in your document and zoom to inspect individual pixels. What's more, Sketch Mirror scales your designs up or down to fit the screen resolution of your iOS device automatically. Also, you can run Sketch Mirror on any number of iOS devices and connect as many of them as you want to one Mac client. Preview your iPad-sized artboards on one device while your iPhone or iPod Touch mirrors the smaller artboards.Of course, iDevice owners should be aware that Sketch for Mac is required in order for the companion app to be of use. As a reminder, Sketch for Mac is available to download in the Mac App Store for $49.99 (which makes the $4.99 price tag applied to the companion application somewhat questionable - especially when Hype Reflect is made available free of charge). Nevertheless, Sketch Mirror can be downloaded for $4.99, and as mentioned the application is optimized for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.
