Affinity Publisher is Apple’s Mac App of the Year

Recommended Posts

ConCats! Curious what Affinity app will win 2020.

Seriously, I hope none.  I do not have Affinity Publisher, but I do rely heavily on Affinity Photo.  I am dismayed at how long some features remain broken, while others seem trapped in a cycle of breaking, being fixed, then regressing.  A long thread about compatibility with Apple Photos is an example of the former.  And it is still not possible to print directly (i. e., without merging layers or exporting to another format ... except PDF) an .afphoto that uses live filters. In my experience as a software developer for a major Swiss bank and a large Swiss pharmaceutical company, it is sometimes necessary to put new software and new features on the back burner in order to fix the foundations of existing products.  This would be a good time to do so.

So has any other software company gone three for three for so much Apple award recognition for their version 1 apps?

All three sport Editors Choice badges on the Mac App Store. AD is an Apple Design Award Winner & the other two are App of the Year winners. Currently in the US Store all three are on the Top Paid apps list.

Correction: I forgot that both iPad apps are also Editors Choices, & both are on the Top paid list. So I guess we could say Affinity has gone five for five.


Affinity Photo 1.7.3, Affinity Designer 1.7.3, Affinity Publisher 1.7.3; macOS High Sierra 10.13.6 iMac (27-inch, Late 2012); 2.9GHz i5 CPU; NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660M; 8GB RAM
Affinity Photo 1.7.3.155 & Affinity Designer 1.7.3.1 for iPad; 6th Generation iPad 32 GB; Apple Pencil; iPadOS 13.1.2

Hi Patrick its excellant news that Apple have announced that Affinity publisher is the Mac app of the year, but what about Affinity Photo? you have said this is being looked into regarding the error when loading edited picture to Apple photo's. what I can't understand is how some people have Affinity Photo with Catalina but others don't. I appreciate there is no end time for this issue to be resolved but why can some get Affinity with Catalina and others don't?

Congratulations! And well deserved. Keep up the great work.. of keeping me off of any Adobe products :p

Sorry for the laughing smiley, but I had to laugh so hard. Adobe I avoid now too like a plague. I was before a real Adobe fan-girl and here I am now :)

Congratulations, team! I kind of expected this, but it's still rewarding, ain't it?


The website is still a work in progress. The "Comics" and "Shop" sections are not yet ready. Feel free to connect with me and let me know what you like or what can be improved. You can contact me here, on my contact page, YouTube channel, or Twitter account. Thanks and have a great day!

Serif are certainly a spectacularly industrious company. Congratulations on the Apple Award it is well-deserved. Your legacy applications were also award winners in their filed as I remember. Particularly PagePlus. I hope Affinity Publisher will go from strength to strength and become a new industry standard that will remain powerful and affordable for users and professionals alike.

Wow! Again! Congratulations. Richly deserved.

As exciting as this award is, the absolute killer news is this little gem tucked away in your award announcement:

'There’s some great stuff coming in our 1.8 update (including IDML import in Affinity Publisher!) which should be with you early in the New Year… '

I see a very large Adobe rock coming off a lot of shoulders in early 2020.
