Version 1.7.3
This is the best in the market right there. I have used photoshop, but nothing is compared to the smoothness of the work through Affinity. I am using an iPad Pro 2018 and it is a bliss to use.
Love.

The tools and flexibility is appreciated. But! Its very difficult to find traditional painting tools and guides in this UI. The UI disappears repeatedly without hitting the full screen button. There are issues with touch as well. Needs a load of simplification.

App is excellent, however I am unable to load any LUT’s stored on my iPad Pro 10.5 model. I can’t load both.CUBE or .CSP extension LUT’s.
This is a big problem for me as I work a lot on colour grading my photos. None of the LUT’s work , the downloaded ones n the saved ones by me. I tried to look for some help through forums. But still no help...pls fix this.

I can’t even edit one photo to the fullest. After few edits it completely stops responding to edit the photo. Kindly improve it. After spending so much money on it now I feel it was total waste.

App is one of the best, but got some minor problems.....

It's an incredible application and I love every part of it and recommends everyone I could. It would be interesting to see an art board feature and perhaps a simple video/ animation timeline features like Photoshop. I see Affinity will and shall rule the New Photoshop app for ipad in all the ways.

The font size and icon sizes have been reduced compared to the previous version. But why ? At least give an option to get back the original font and icon size within the app. It is very annoying to use the small font and icon size in the app.

I have just bought new iPad Pro 2018 model to to do artwork and photo editing. For this purpose I have purchased Affinity Photo and Affinity Designer both together. I haven’t used affinity Designer yet but I have used affinity photo and my first impression was very bad. It get crashed every time when I use smudge tool and all the hard work I did get lost. I have tried several time but it crashes again and again. Kindly fix the bug as soon as possible.

It’s great if you want to make your photos into pieces of art or design something, but it doesn’t go very far in editing raw files. Noise removal is especially bad.

I’ve loved this app like no other on app store. But your last update “optimised for new iPad pro” isn’t letting me open any file. It just stops working and takes me back to my iPad’s home screen.
I do my commercial work on this, it causes me loss of time and frustration.
The moment Affinity Photo worked as it did, I’ll be back on 5 stars.
PS: I had to update my beta OS. Everything is working fine now

Perfect

1.They should seriously add a full tutorial within the app.
2.Full UI redesign must be done.
3.Some times the app gets stuck and I have to close the app and launch again to make it work.
4.Drawing is laggy when compared to Procreate!

Affinity Photo brings the abilities of desktop softwares to the iPad. It's got most of Affinity Photo's desktop features and the UI is easy to use and very touch friendly.
It's got a wide range of adjustments and filters, some of which are entirely new.
Missing are an on screen delete button, shift button, command button and keyboard compatibility which right now it barely has.
It's one of a kind and a must buy for Designers
