Affinity Designer for Ipad

17 posts in this topic

Well. Downloaded last night for my ipad air 2 and i'm impress about the speed and response of the app. I can't wait to see on my new Ipad 12.5 2nd gen next week. 

Anyway. Are we going to have an Affinity Designer too?

Hi Marcoborghesi,

 

Thanks for the feedback and great to hear you are enjoying the app.

 

Designer is currently being worked on and will be coming to the iPad soon :)

 

AD would not spread as AP but it is equally important.

It's been developing for a long time, we hope it's true.
AD IOS will bring many other professionals to this brand.

I think if on iPad I will have the ability to use Pantone colours in Affintiy design it would be the turning point for a lot of people that wants to stay pro but in mobility and I'm pretty sure this is the way that slowly Apple would like to go developing mac but also a new big branch of professional people on mobility.

 

Can't wait for Affintiy Design too. Do we know when it would be aproximately?

Affinity Designer for iPad with the same feature set like the desktop version would be a breakthrough for graphic designers. Currently in the App Store there is no app which could be seriously used for print and web projects from start to finish. There are a couple of illustration apps but they don't have anything else: no layout tools, no print features (CMYK, spot colors, bleeds), no web design/export features (pixel snapping, asset export etc. etc.).

 

If I were the CEO of Serif Ltd., I would've pushed Affinity Designer for iPad to the market before the Photo app. :)

Well at least sooner than later and we will get a complete suite for iPad to be a pro on mobility. I can't wait for that day. Specially because I made that strong decision that I will relay just on the ipad 12.9 from now on. No laptop anymore. Let see how it goes

I can't also wait for the DTP software and App.

ohh man, thanks!

 

I can't wait to compare the workflow between desktop and ios versions.
After a week of testing in AP IOS I realized that I need about 3/6 times the time for the same job on the mac, depends on the work.

 

I hope to reduce this gap in AD because I would like to use both software for my work and not only for fun.

Just to be clear, are you saying that the same job on the Mac takes 3-6 times as long as it takes on the iPad? :unsure:

just a simple reply....shortcuts
I'm a photographer and I work with shortcuts only.

 

Work with fingers or the applepencil is quite slow and after 3 or 4 hours of work you are very tired. The only thing where I'm faster is the manual cutting, a real pleasure! ( I do the same also through ASTROPAD, for using apple pencil on the mac version of AP and Photoshop)
 
anyway,  I love AP iOS  and I consider it my backup on the go in my work, very powerful. Affinity does what adobe ( with tons of USD millions ) are unable to offer.

Ah, OK, so it's the other way around: working with the Apple Pencil on the iPad Pro is slow and tiring compared to the equivalent actions on a Mac. That sounds like quite a high price to pay for the ability to work on the go. :(

Well, I would say it is still faster than having nothing to seriously use on an iPad at all...and therefore the lack of efficiency is made up by the shear availability.

 

Half full? Half empty? Other side of the coin...

Cue for a cutting remark.... :P

I mean professional work, paid also based on the time you spend.
You can't compare between the same job done through shortcuts on a keyboard and fingers on a touch screen, not the same thing. We talk about 3/6 times more than my regular workfloor on OSX and I'm quite fast :)
 
Ipad (12)  is the best if you need to work lighter or to check shots with the customer, or to show to the customer ( or the model)  in real time your work trough astropad during the shooting (with iPad close to the model, connected via WIFI on a mac, and the laptop connected to the camera through canon software).  It is a great tool for professionals, not only for AP.

yes of course, no alternatives here and my guess is related only to the professional work.

I have a lot of fun on ipad now because I can play with my images everywhere. I made some minor works this week only with AP IOS, more time but new lifestyle :)
