Affinity Photo App Store vs Website Download

Recommended Posts

I was going to purchase using apple App Store but I can see that is I order directly from your website it says you get a free bonus Macro Pack, can you confirm if you get this bonus pack when purchasing through apple store or is this exclusive to website purchase?
 
Also if I purchase full version for my iMac, am I able to download the iPad version for free to use when I am on the go?
 
Thanks

Hi drew32,

Welcome to the forums.

After purchasing and installing from the Mac App Store on the Welcome screen is a link to the free Macro Pack download. The iPad version is a separate app and can only be purchased from the iOS App Store.

FWIW, the delay occurs because the app "phones home" over the internet to fetch the most current info about the available products & promotional offers. A consequence of this is if the Mac is not connected to the internet or a firewall or third party utility like Little Snitch blocks access to the servers, it will never update.

The Force Macro Pack Vol. 1 offer is a permanent offer, so there’s no need to fetch current info about it via the app. Just go here:

True, but that might change at some point in the future, like maybe with a new version with more or improved macros, & the promo stuff does change from time to time.

What would be helpful is some on-screen indication that the Welcome screen is trying to connect to the servers, possibly similar to the way the Samples pane does that with the round progress indicator.
