Affinity iPad App Not Needed? Apple Sidecar?


Recommended Posts

Hey trying to determine efficient workflow and maximizing capabilities.

I have had Affinity Photo and Designer for MacOS for quite some time. Just got an iPad Pro.

1) Is there any reason to actually get the iPad Pro App when I can just use Apple Sidecar Affinity Photo or Designer?

2) Does the iPad Pro App have the same hot keys as Desktop version if I have a Bluetooth keyboard to my iPad? Like Hold Shift to scale uniformly?

One benefit i can see, is being able to work on your iPad without having to be connected to a Mac.

It does have some keyboard shortcuts and they are the same as the Desktop version where possible.  You can also change the Shortcuts in Preferences for certain actions
