As you would expect, Affinity Designer for iPad has been fully tailored to harness the explosive power of the iPad’s cutting-edge technology – from its advanced graphics processing, to the latest iOS functionality and precision dynamics of Apple Pencil – each element has been meticulously considered.
The result is a slick, powerful, modern app that can handle a full creative workflow and totally free you from the confines of working at your desk.
Here’s just a taste of what you can look forward to:
Super smooth curves – Affinity Designer’s vector tools have been completely re-imagined for iPad. With live preview, unrivalled brush stabilisation and multi-touch modifiers, you’ll find crafting curves an absolute dream.
Fluid live shapes – The fully customisable live shapes in Affinity Designer are incredibly smooth to adapt with automatic snapping points and non-destructive Booleans to ensure spot on geometry every time.
Advanced layer controls – Tweak your designs to perfection with a full set of non-destructive adjustment layers. Combined with support for masks and clipping layers, Affinity Designer gives you the most advanced layer controls available in any vector-based app.
Exquisite typography – Whether you’re working with artistic text for headlines, or frames of text for body copy, you can add sophisticated styling and ligatures with full control over attributes. Convert your text to curves to produce your own exquisite, custom typography – perfect for standout logos and branding.
Incredible colour control – With support for all major formats, 16-bit per channel editing, end-to-end CMYK, live blend modes and silky smooth gradients, the control you have over colour is almost limitless.
Switch to pixels – Sketch out your ideas with raster brushes, paint inside vectors to create texture, create masks and make pixel selections – all without ever leaving the app.
1,000,000% zoom – Just because you’re on a mobile device you don’t need to compromise on power. You can work on huge designs, with literally 1,000s of layers – and even zoom to over one million percent.
End-to-end UI design – Affinity Designer boasts an incredible feature set for website and app design including unlimited artboards, precision guides and snapping, dynamic symbols and constraints for responsive design.
Unrivalled pro export – Our revolutionary app offers the most advanced export capability ever seen on iPad. Whether you want a press ready PDF/X-4, a fully layered PSD, SVG or EPS file – you have full control over all export options.
For a project of this magnitude we enlisted the help of some of the most influential artists, illustrators and designers in the business to ensure Affinity Designer for iPad was developed with the needs and workflows of real users at its core. Here’s what some of them had to say about working with the beta:
“Affinity Designer for iPad is incredible, powerful and reliable. I love the way objects are managed and gestures have been implemented. It’s a great surprise to me to have such complete vector software on a mobile device, it’s something I’ve been waiting for.”
David Sossella, illustrator and creative director“I’m delighted that there is now an app like this available on iPad. Combining vector and raster tools, and with the addition of type, it has everything I need to work solely on the pad if required.”
Matt Griffin, illustrator and author“I’m blown away with Affinity Designer for iPad. Having the freedom to work from a sketch to a finished vectorised artwork all without any cables, in one app is a dream come true and a huge time saver.”
Will Schorer, illustrator and graphic designer
Another revolutionary thing about our Affinity apps is their unique cross platform and cross application compatibility. Affinity Designer for iPad not only works seamlessly with the desktop version, it works perfectly with its partner app, Affinity Photo, too.
And just in case you were wondering, Affinity Publisher will complete our roster of products later this year, bringing design, photo editing and desktop publishing into one unmatched, cutting-edge creative suite.
So whether you’re an owner of our desktop app looking to add greater flexibility to your workflow, an Affinity Photo user considering adding more vector power to your toolkit, or you’re still to discover the power and performance of the Affinity range, now is the perfect time to take the plunge.
