Provided you are using the exact same Apple ID, if you click on the buy button, once you authenticate yourself with the mac store, it should change from $49.95 to the download icon indicating you already have it. For peace of mind, you could try downloading another free app first as you would still have to authenticate. Now the icon for Affinity should indicate you already own it and can download it without fear of being charged again.

I have just downloaded the free trial of Affinity Photo and so far so go.  I would like to know if I can use Affinity Photo on my desk top and also on my Mac Book?  I will be attending a course where I need an editing program so need it on my Mac Book for that but I mostly will be using it on my desktop.

Hi Terr,

Welcome to Affinity Forums :)

Yes, you can install and use the software in both your personal desktop and laptop.

Make sure you are signed in (in the Mac App Store app) with the same Apple ID you used to buy the app for the first computer.

The Affinity Photo trial will only run for ten (consecutive) days.

Hi dark lord vdr and welcome to the forums.


Yes we currently think it will be necessary to buy separate licenses for Mac and Windows. The App Stores don't play friendly with each other and Apple for one don't share any customer data at all, so we have no straightforward way to manage cross platform licensing. The same will be true for iOS I believe. It's something the team considered when choosing a low price for our apps as part of a suite, so they're affordable when usage grows, planning for one purchase per app per user per platform.
