Affinity Publisher for iPad Pro

Out of curiosity, why are they referring to 'Publisher 2 iPad', where's Publisher 1 iPad?! Unless they are also bringing out Photo 2/Designer 2? And what about Publisher 1 Desktop?

What IS ‘Publisher 2 iPad’ ?

It can be. Just like there is Office 365, while there weren't 25,58,125,234 and 364. Its just a name. But I know what you mean. It could very well be named iPad Publisher, as there were none before it. But I belive its done on purpose, to differenciate it from curent, so to say v1 family, generation of apps.

I guess it is just a name, yes, but names often hint at what you’re getting. It’s almost like a qualification. Since the naming is different, it suggests that what’s in the can is different, too. 
 

like coke classic. Is it real coca-cola? If it is, why does it have a different name? It suggests you’re not actually getting the real thing, but some kind of euphemistically-named substitute. 

this might be overthinking….

however, when I learned that it seemed there’d be an iPad version of possibly the greatest graphics suite ever created, it felt like the plan was to offer a cross-platform work environment…

…which I feel is why we’re all on the edge of our seats waiting for it. 
 

having a v2 when there isn’t even a v1 makes one think that it’s not a continuation of what we have on mac and windows, but something with clipped wings. 
 

still…will be cool when it arrives.

Why Not? - Perhaps to bring all the products under one name now the family is getting bigger.... Anything is possible.

I did wonder about the numbering of Publisher for iPad. But (assuming there isn't a v1 followed rapidly by v2) it probably makes more sense for all nine apps in version 2 of the Affinity suite to be referred to as v2, rather than Publisher for iPad having a different version number. I can see that there could be a lot of confusion, as people new to Affinity would probably assume that "Publisher for iPad v1" was actually an earlier version than all the other apps in the suite and, therefore, not compatible with them!

Yeah it’s telling you exactly what you’re getting. You’re getting the v2 codebase and feature set scaled for iPad. 
 

if they brought out all new apps for the other platforms at v2 and the iPad at v1 then I’d assume it was on the same codebase as publisher v1

 

You’ll notice that iPadOS debuted with a high version number than 1.0.

I like the Affinity products but I am a bit disappointed with the "consumer communication". It's a shame that the information comes from Apple and not from them. If there is an Affinity admin, it would be nice to hear from him..

The main source of information has been Apple “leaks” in their screenshots. Nothing official about a release date. 
 

I suggest more starching of the underwear. Prevents getting them in a twist.

From the iPad Pro page:

So we’ll have to wait a bit more, hopefully not more than 2 months and 2 weeks.

Serif staff in another thread claim that it’s only a beta version of Affinity Publisher for iPad that will be released THIS year…

So, don’t predict that Publisher for iPad is around the corner for the public…

Since the new iPadOS is due to be released on Monday Oct 24th, hopefully the new Affinity version on the same platform (iPadOS) will be released as well.

No…

Perhaps we will see some kind of beta version of Publisher for iPad this year, but, public release will probably be next year…

The hope is the last thing that abandons you. On Monday we will have the answer if Affinity managed to release their new baby or not.

And, can it be installed on Windows 9 as well?

This thread has served its purpose. Apple has shown Affinity Publisher 2 for iPad will be available soon(near the bottom of that page and in this video. Thread locked
