Are Affinity files interchangeable between an iPad and windows laptop?

Recommended Posts

Hi, 

Are Affinity files created on an iPad seamlessly compatible with Affinity Photo, Affinity Designer and Affinity Publisher on my windows laptop? In other words: can I open artwork I made on the ipad as an Affinity file on my laptop, and then work on it a little more on my windows laptop, and vice versa? This might be a really stupid question, but I just want to make sure things will work before I buy an iPad. 

Also: what's the easiest way to transfer Affinity files between an iPad and Windows Laptop? As I can't seem to store Affinity files in icloud , and I don't believe iPads usually have an sd card slot.

Thanks in advance for your reply! 

Karina

Hi, in the meantime I have bought an iPad and tried exchanging files between my iPad and windows laptop with dropbox, google Drive, wetransfer and the like numerous times. This did not work well at all, especially not with larger files. This could be because my wifi isn’t the strongest. But still very frustrating if something just does not work, even after trying so many times. 

So, I went looking for a solution that did work, and found one. Yeah!!! What does work is an app called ShareIt. This creates a wifi hotspot and works like airdrop. I can transfer large 580 MB files really fast with ShareIt. Works every time. Apple airdop is even easier if you have a Mac, but ShareIt definitely works. Hope this helps somebody out.
