Con Can't export your site for deployment unless you pay.
Not unreasonable, but something users should know before investing their time.
Con Design tool is web-based, not a proper application.
The site doesn't state this explicitly.
Con Fixed media queries
Webflow has four fixed breakpoints (desktop, laptop, mobile landscape & mobile portrait). The inability to set your own media queries can be limiting. If your layout breaks outside of these four options, you have to export the code and write them yourself.
Con Changing rapidly
The fast rate of growth/change for Gravit can be a pro in that in means plenty of new features.
However, it also makes the product fairly unpredictable.
For example: In the past year, Gravit was open sourced, then closed sourced again.
Con This does not appear to be a Web-design tool
Gravit appears to be a vector-art tool, and nothing more. Their homepage doesn't even mention Web design as far as I can see.
