Free Sketch App on Mac OSX? Sketch Trial Reset!

Sketch Trial Expired

How Does It Work

You don’t need crack or keygen anymore. All you have to do, to extend your trial period, is go to Date & Time preferences and set date before you trial period has started. Then open your Sketch.app and set your time back to automatic.

But this can be really annoying do it over and over. And you can do it from your terminal too! All you need is date command. To set specific date you it with date parameter in following format +%m%d%H%M%y (MonthDayHourMinuteYear).

sudo date 0102030405

So command above will set your Date & Time to Sun Jan  2 03:04:00 +07 2005. Now when you open Sketch.app everything should appear as trial has not expired yet. But you don’t want to have your computer with wrong date & time. So to set it back you can use following command, which will set your time according to apple time server:

sudo ntpdate -u time.apple.com (deprecated on Mac OS Mojave)
sudo sntp -sS time.apple.com

Now with this knowledge it’s pretty easy to create your own Automator.app, that will do this workflow every time you run Sketch.app

Other Trial Resets

Other trial resets are described in these articles: Adobe PhotoshopAdobe Premiere Pro and Adobe Illustrator.

This one is for study purposes and demonstration how easy is to bay-pass trial period. Any modification of any software is not recommended and you do it on your own risk.
