  • I want to love it, but.......

    I really want to love this application. The user interface is very hard to understand and has a huge learning curve. Tools are not easy to find and often don’t make sense. I really want this application to succeed so I hope Serif really spends some time refining the tools in the user experience of this application. I truly believe it can be one-of-a-kind.

    Another great software/app with a reasonable one time price, unlike $ grab subscription based companies like Adobe. The app is feature filled professional vector art tool set & is continually developed/updated by the awesome Serif Labs team. I personally want to thank you all for making great professional software for everyday ppl/hobbits for a one time price point, that means a lot to me & I’m sure many others. Gone are the days that Adobe sits at the top making bloatware with out any real competition, which allowed them to do whatever they wanted & to price gouge their customer base. I personal own all Affinity products on mobile & PC, without any hesitation or regret I would whole heartedly recommend the PC/Mac & mobile software to anyone...especially artist! Thank You Very Much Serif Labs Team!

    I can honestly do all of my previous Illustrator work on an iPad Pro now and I can’t tell you how amazing that is. This is the first truly professional vector illustration app for the iPad. It doesn’t cut any corners!
  • Where’s the User Manual???

    Love the app but,... the developers really need to post a downloadable PDF User Manual on their website or integrate one into the app that can be opened in iBooks or emailed etc. This goes for Affinity Photo and Publisher also. At $20 you can’t beat it. It’s better than paying for a subscription for the upcoming Photoshop for iPad Pro!
  • At this point is a great app that could improve

    I have been using Affinity Photo and Designer for three years now and I was excited for the release of this app. The app works great, there are still a few bugs to fix (as most apps when launched). I liked that the app is basically a full mac version. First time I used it, it was hard to find the undo button, I was expected the UI to be really close to Affinity Photo for iPad but there are difference that makes harder to find what you are looking for, is easier to work with a UI that you are familiarized with. I will recommend this app, no doubt. It’s not perfect but I’m sure new updates will improve the app.
  • Crashes frequently. Disappointing for its price.

    Keep losing work on a 2017 iPad Pro due to crashes on relatively small and simple documents. Very frustrating.

    This app is just so much fun to use! Full featured? No. Illustrators feature set? No. The best drawing illustration and graphic design app on the iPad? Yep! Love that it does both vector and pixel.
  • Still Wow!

    This is a powerful vector app with a good UI, and the added bonus of supporting raster graphics simultaneously. I'm finding it very useful for designs and sketches of woodworking projects, and light duty photo touch up. Well worth the money!
  • Hoped for more

    Coming from adobe illustrator I was hoping for more. There are a lot of great features and this seems like maybe the best vector program available on iPad, but it is still very buggy and I can’t do simple things like expanding vector brushes or spray repeat symbols. As they update I’ll change my review but right now I feel let down considering the price of the app. Seems like too much time spend trying to make the interface nifty and not enough on just making the app work correctly. Hoping to rate higher as the app matures.
  • Needs Trim Feature like Adobe Illustrator

    I’m doing the unholy of all unholiness in app reviews. I am 1 staring Affinity Designer for not having a feature. The feature in question is one that needs to be in any vector software. Why it is not in the most top rated professional vector app on the planet is beyond me but here it is. We need proper object trim capability. It is the most basic function of the desk top vector apps like Illustrator or Corel Draw. Put this feature in Affinity Designer and you will get the 5* Rating this app should have. Update! The developer response is hilarious! You’re giving me tips on cropping the canvas? That’s not what I asked for. TRIM!!!!! The ability to use one or more objects to cut through other objects. Not divide...TRIM! Please look it up on youtube, Adobe Illustrator Trim functionally. In fact just replicate everything in Adobe Illustrator pathfinder tools...PLEASE! You don’t have a proper merge capability, as well. Seriously we need to be seeing an update with improved tools on a weekly bases. How about taking look at the feature requests made by other users in the Affinity Designer forum on your website. Everything in there is completely reasonable and needs to happen. 1 Star stays because developer response did not address the issue.
