Affinity Photo Customer Beta ( - GM Seed)

Recommended Posts

Status: GM Seed

Purpose: Features, Improvements, Fixes

Requirements: Purchased Affinity Photo for iPad From App Store

App Store: Submitted

Download link: Download



We are pleased to announce the immediate availability of the final build of Affinity Photo 1.8.3 for iPad.

If this is your first time using a customer beta of an Affinity app, it’s worth noting that the beta will install as a separate app - alongside your store version. They will not interfere with each other at all and you can continue to use the store version for critical work without worry.

This beta is an incremental update to the 1.8.2 version recently released to all customers. We recommend that you use this beta in preference to the store version if you are affected by any of the issues listed below.

We are moving to release candidate stage early for 1.8.3, due to the discovery of a bug which prevents auto save from working in most circumstances. This bug can cause significant loss of work for users and is classed as extremely high priority. Once 1.8.3 is released, we will be back with 1.8.4 betas relatively quickly.

Please note that there is no longer a requirement to email photoipadbeta@seriflabs.com to join this beta - anyone can use the beta using the link above, provided you have the App Store version of Photo installed.
