Affinity Designer for iPad - Offline Video Tutorials

Recommended Posts


Is it possible to allow users to download the Affinity Designer for iPad video tutorials so they can watch and learn from them off-line?

July is the holiday time of year, and what not a better way to spend any travel waiting downtime than learning and using Affinity Designer for iPad?

I would love it if you can make these available for all those keen to learn.

They're all hosted on Vimeo, so if you can find your way to the individual pages you'll find a download link for each one. Unfortunately, I don't know of a quick and easy way to determine all of the URLs. I think I've found the information I was looking for!
