So while waiting for Adobe CC to come to the iPad I find this! This app blows desktop Illustrator CC out of the water, while being considerably more affordable. Full of features and snappy performance! You can even undo after saving the file (what!!). And support for the smallest but important things like crop marks and colour profiles which wasn’t on the last iOS app I was depending on. My only issue, although minor is getting fonts installed—I can’t seem to select the (OTF) font files via the Files dialog, it’s all greyed out except for folders.

Thank you for all the hard work and putting some real competition into the pro design app space!

A great start but can’t recommend it for now.

There is a lot to love about this full featured product on an iPad and it saddens me to say that I still would not recommend it. There are a few features missing here and there but that is to be expected for a small team. But there are some productivity crippling bugs that are still in there 4 months after release. With Serif working on Affinity Publisher, I worry that this product isn’t going to have the support that it needs. Hopefully early 2019 will see some fixes, as this could be a dream product.

Always rope stabiliser

Tried everything that I know, it’s always the rope stabiliser, no window one.
