Really excited to share my latest project **[Bootsketch.com](http://bootsketch.com/)** with you. I'm treating this as a **"soft launch"** to get some feedback from other designers before I drive traffic to it. *** ## What is bootsketch? Bootsketch is a sketch file that gives you all of the Bootstrap components in the latest 4.0 documentation. ## The problem I design a lot of sites that are developed in Bootstrap. All of the current Bootstrap sketch files seem to be missing the mark. no symbols or poor use of symbols, ineffective symbol overrides, unorganized, not resizable, colors / type aren't linked to components ## My Solution In Bootsketch I've created each symbol to be **resizable, intuitive, and extendable** **All colors** are linked to layer styles and symbols so updating branding is extremely quick and easy. Updating text styles is just as easy ![Image title](http://www.bootsketch.com/assets/img/self-explanatory.png) ![image title](http://www.bootsketch.com/assets/img/gifs/3.9-resize-carousel-min.gif) *** # With all of that said... I welcome any bit of feedback you might have. Anything from: - Price point - Design - Copy - How useful you think the product is - What would you change, etc. *This is the first place I'm posting it, so I can get feedback and iterate. As a thank you here is coupon code for $20 off [Bootsketch](http://bootsketch.com/)* ## Coupon code: > DNForTheWin ### Update: Thanks so much for the positive feedback, DN! I've created a public trello board for everyone to add wishlist items, bugs, future updates, etc. Feel free to add your requests to this board https://trello.com/b/0FRbgQvy/bootsketch https://www.designernews.co/stories/90235-bootsketch-design-sites-faster-looking-for-feedback Wed, 13 Dec 2017 13:15:34 +0000 2017-12-13T13:15:34+00:00 Password Stealing Apps With Over A Million Downloads Found On Google Play Store http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/TheHackersNews/~3/2fZKSp2h1Yw/google-playstore-malware.html Even after so many efforts by Google like launching bug bounty program and preventing apps from using Android accessibility services, malicious applications somehow manage to get into Play Store and infect people with malicious software.
