We use different tools, but this is also how work is done at Shiny Frog.

We use Sketch to get an idea roughed out (and for creating assets), and then move quickly to Xcode. Sometimes we’ll make a prototype project, but as much as possible design happens in the real app’s codebase.

One way in which this is a huge benefit and time saver is with themes in Bear: there are a lot and it’s critical to quickly see how a design holds up across them all. Doing that in Sketch would take forever and require a sophisticated system that need always be kept in sync with the real code.
