Adobe killer

After owning from CS4 to 5 to 6, I have now shifted all work from Photoshop and Illustrator across to Affinity Photo and Designer. It is every bit as good as those products, and in my opinion better. Tutorials are brilliant, which made the move even easier, and Affinity doesn’t think that the world owes them bucket loads of money, in fact I think they are massively undercharging for there software. I have Photo and Designer on my Mac and iPad Pro, and work seamlessly between the two, achieving tasks already as fast as I achieved them using Adobe products after less than a month. Buy Affinity Designer and Photo! Do the tutorials! Be happy! Congratulations Affinity on outstanding software.

Affinity Leads in Enterprise apps on iPad!


Having had the excellent affinity photo on Mac and then iPad (as soon as it was released), I’ve been waiting for ages to get Designer . I mostly use vector apps so having Designer on Mac and iPad is just perfect. It runs well doesn’t appear to have any major bugs and means I can easily move workflow between desktop and iPad. Apple Pencil just adds the icing on the cake.

Affinity, as usual, have put to shame the other big names in producing quality fully featured, enterprise grade, software for iPad and showing what can be done (where are you Adobe and Corel, just playing around with freebie cut down apps I think). Nuff Said!

Finally! The best app for illustration comes to iPad!


I’ve been using Affinity Designer for the Mac for years, so I was desperate for the iPad version. Now it’s done, I can only say what a remarkable job the team has done making this FULLY FEATURED app a reality.

What I really love is that unlike Affinity Photo, many of the little kinks have been ironed out in this version- two finger tap for undo for one! Such a great feature and badly needed in Photo, and beautifully implemented here.

As is everything else! The tool selection is predictable and effortless. The speed is blazing (on iPad Pro 1st gen)

The whole experience is throughly relaxing and enjoyable, and it will be a pleasure to draw more customisable imagery on the go now.

Fantastic job guys, very well done!

One little ask-

Could we have the option to auto save to iCloud Drive? The extra step of asking it to ‘save’ is a little easy to forget!

But really wonderful stuff. Naturally I shall tell the world!
