Unable to download sample files on iPad for Affinity Designer

Recommended Posts

Hi I am unable to download the sample files provided in the Designer app on to my iPad. I managed to download one file but the others are getting stuck for impossibly long periods of time. Agreed this is not a major issue but it has me worried about whether there is some larger issue at work. Esp since I am to totally new to Affinity. Any ideas? I am using an iPad Air 2, the device is old but the app seems to run okay on it. Also, there is enough space on the device  and the connection is all right too, so it can’t be those issues. Thanks!

Welcome to the Serif Affinity Forums, @accentontheoff. :)

I’m also using an iPad Air 2, and I’ve occasionally been unable to download Affinity sample files. I suspect the main problem is that some of the sample files are very large and we only have 2 GB of RAM. Try restarting your iPad so that as much memory as possible is freed up before you have another attempt at downloading.

Ah ok thanks. 
Are you certain RAM can affect download speed. 
And how do you find the app to use otherwise. 
I am considering switching to the latest base model iPad. 
I am a beginner when it comes to design, so hopefully that should be enough. 
P.S. Will try the restart trick later.
