Long-time user of Serif products, chiefly PagePlus and PhotoPlus, but also WebPlus, CraftArtistProfessional and DrawPlus.  Delighted to be using Affinity Designer, Photo, and now Publisher.

I wonder whether the latest votes come from users who've been seduced by the 'value for money' factor. Todoist is free. ¬¬

Maybe!....

 

It might have been better to keep this tread visible at the front of the Forum....There is an 8 hour gap in quotes/replies...

 

...still Hopefully AD will win :)

I was wondering whether price would play a part too, as all the others can be downloaded for free.  I just hope they are genuine votes from real users and not coming from a click farm or something.  It's frustrating to see a to-do list ahead of something like Affinity Designer. It doesn't even have a particularly good rating, which makes it's popularity even more puzzling.

Todoist has a much broader appeal than Affinity. Everyone needs a to-do list, even if it's just for grocery shopping, the same can't be said about a design & illustration software. That said, it will be pretty sad if they win. :(

Penbook has now shot up to 22% at the expense of all the other three. Compared to the figures that @Stuart_R posted 16 hours ago, Affinity Designer has dropped by 2%, Plex has dropped by 3% and Todoist has dropped by 4%.

It's because they've sent a notification out to everyone's computer who has it installed. I know because I got one earlier...

Time for Serif's email marketing team to do the same then


Due to the fact that Boris Johnson is now our Prime Minister, punctuation, spelling and grammar will never be worried about ever again.  We now have far bigger problems to be concerned about.

We can't unfortunately, not without building a new version and distributing it on the store - which would take way more than a few days (the vote expires on 16th).

I don't recall getting one. (I grabbed the app while it was originally on offer for only a few days, but I see that the offer has been extended to cover the remaining days of the voting period.)

I meant email everyone that has purchased the app through the Affinity store (whose email details you already have)

I voted and I neither have Windows 10 or use the Windows store
