  1. Any updates on when the slow launching issue will be fixed and an update available in the App Store?
  2. Well, that's comforting! But yes, your comment to Willem above did sound very dismissive of the issue. Hopefully it will be figured out soon! Thanks.
  3. Every single one of my apps are Universal, except for one. I've made a point of installing only Universal versions (including a beta of the Universal version of Microsoft 365 apps), and none of them have this issue. I'm not a developer so I don't know how the process works, but there must be a difference in the code between the App Store version and the standalone version. I see the size of the file is different, so they are not the same. In any case, I'm stuck on using a trial (which is temporary) so please don't sit back and wait to see if others have the same issue. You have two people with the problem. I'm happy to assist in troubleshooting, or...you could actually download the Universal app from the App Store on a M1-based Mac and try it yourself.
  4. I am not using WIFI. I use Ethernet. But even with it unplugged (no internet), it is the same -- slow startup.
  5. I do have some other 3rd party apps from the App Store, but no issues with them. Just the Affinity apps from the App Store.
  6. Thanks. I had read a similar article, but it mentioned that App Store apps don't use OCSP. Not sure if that's true or not, but I do not believe that is my issue for a few reasons: The article says the OCSP check is cached for 12 hours. My Affinity apps from the App Store have the long delay EVERY TIME they are first launched or a long period of time goes by since it was launched. The article says that if the Mac is OFFLINE, the check is skipped. I can disconnect my Mac from the network and the launch delay is still there. It is no longer November 12, 2020. The delays in OCSP have been fixed. No reason why this should be happening if it's OCSP related (Apple's fault). It could still be an issue with Affinity. The standalone apps do not delay on launch. Ever. They do the same OCSP checks, right?
  7. Brand new Mac Mini M1. Very first thing I installed was the three Affinity apps I purchased from the App Store. Once installed, upon launch, I noticed a very long delay before the app appeared. I closed and relaunched and launch time was normal (2-3 seconds). I rebooted and launched again. On the first launch, each of the apps takes 17 seconds to launch. Tested again and again with same results, each time rebooting and then launching apps. I then compared launch time of the same App Store apps on my Intel Mac. 4 seconds, consistently for all the apps. Someone on another forum mentioned something about OCSP and App Store apps, so I decided to try an experiment -- I downloaded and installed trial versions of the three Affinity apps directly from the Affinity site. Surprisingly, all the apps launch 2-3 seconds every time. So, it does seem something is wrong with the App Store apps at first launch of session. I'm guessing on the first launch, once an App Store app has been approved by OCSP, it doesn't make that check again during that session and is why it launches normally after the 1st try? (just guessing, I have no idea...) Just to be clear, the time it takes once the app is clicked and when the splash screen appears is 17 seconds. Crazy long! Anyone have any ideas how to rectify this?
