Affinity Designer iPad for iPhone (split)

The Help file available in the apps cover/describe all the functionality/features available on each app - it's the closest equivalent of a printed manual. If you already have some experience with other design/photo editing apps you shouldn't have much trouble translating their workflows into Affinity l(et us know if something isn't clear enough). If you want to learn a little bit more about their use in practise take at the official video tutorials which are quite extensive and show how to use most of these features in detail:



Also don't miss Affinity Spotlight - besides the behind the scenes, news and inspiration sections it also has a learning section with tutorials covering various aspects of the apps.

The Workbooks are intended to go a step further. Rather than being just focused on describing/detailing the program's capabilities/features as manuals do, they are project based tutorials (plus working/sample files) - some of them written/provided by third parties/authors - that focus/teach how to approach certain tasks/workflows and design/photo editing projects from scratch, while getting the most out of the app's features/capabilities - they are more than just manuals thus being sold as independent books.

These are just the official resources. If you look around, most social networks and learning sites (YouTube, Vimeo, Skillshare, Udemy, Lynda.com just to mention a few) already provide quite a lot of tutorials - some for free - here's a few for Affinity Photo and Affinity Designer (also written tutorials for Affinity Designer here).

Is the iPad version also works on the iPhone?

Welcome to Affinity Forums :)

The Affinity Designer for iPad software does not work on an iPhone, no. The screen is too small for the interface and to small for the accuracy you would need to adjust the controls of the iPad version.

Hi! Does it make sense to wait for the light version for the iPhone in the near future?

I really miss the pocket vector editor for accurate sketches ... with symmetry and sticking on the grid

Or can you recommend an application from another manufacturer? ;-)

@Patrick Connor has already explained why there isn’t (going to be) one. Apple have only recently released the iPad Mini 5 which — unlike earlier iPad Minis — has a large enough screen for the Affinity apps.
