Many possibilities, some bugs to Iron out.

I’m not a pro so forgive the lame explanation. I make an elipse, give it some fx (3D etc.). AFTER that I create another one, select the artiitic text, I tap on the newly created shape and... I get thrown away from the canvas. The Icon suggests I did everything right ( I see those red/green arrows that allow further manipulation) yet nothing I type shows up.

Why can’t I just create a shape, type and then warp the text around outside/inside the shape? Or group a shape with the text as a selection and then place the text on a path? That’s how it’s solved in Autodesk Graphic. Other than that, after playing around a bit, your software seems a beast in termsof mobile graphic software. Please iron out those minor issues and make Designer as well as Photo a bit more stable ( they Force close from time to time at least on those weaker iPads that are supported).
Waiting impatiently for fixes as well as for a mobile Publisher.
Best Regards :)

Revolutionary app

I’m a professional graphic designer. For years I’m using Adobe software struggling with vectors and raster apps. Affinity Designer allows me for creating outstanding effects with an ease using only one app! Supporting vectors and rasters is a revolution for all graphic designers and illustrators! Too bad I found it out so late!

It would be great if the iPad version is more compatible with a desktop version.

It will make you believe in iPad

THIS! This software became my main art tool in a week.

Switching from Mac or windows photoshop and illustrator, pad feels tight: one hand workflow, no keyboard shortcuts, simple software, then affinity comes in and everything is awesome.

Interface takes a while to get used if you’re coming from desktop, but it is actually brilliant and I can say superior to adobe interface by long!

Fantastic layer effects, automatic rounded edges, lightning fast, grouping and clipping are easy and powerful to use, vector brushes, raster brushes in vector paths and even raster layers to clip on vector shapes for advanced hand shading.

It’s possibly the best drawing software on iOS.
