Editors’ Choice

On desktop, Affinity Publisher won our Mac App of the Year Award, providing all the tools necessary to lay out a large-format photo book, a poster for a school play, or a brochure for your small business. The new Affinity Publisher 2 lets you do all this and more using an interface optimized for touchscreen.

Great app with one problem!

I bought affinity photo and design ver 1 for ipad, both of them are fantastic and I will update to new version. I had a passion for publisher and I installed trial version. after work with them I think it’s a fantastic app. it’s great we can design and publish long content like books and magazine with ipad, it’s grate. app feature and format support is fantastic. but any apps of the serif affinity don’t support RTL text! I use mirror online web site for import RTL text in designer and photo. but in publisher we have a big problem for this app because our texts are to long and we can’t use mirror tools for them. I don’t think after ending trial version time I buy this app only for this problem! Because I need your app support RTL text. I’m sure very people will be waiting for RTL text support. your software is fantastic and economy for middle east and north Africa market. Please adding this feature. Thanks.

A few small errors

I love it in a million different ways, but the double tap options are limited to publisher tools, which is useless in studio link. And, the saving function is wonky; I can only seem to get anything saved by saving a copy, otherwise the save copy is no where to be found. Other than that, it’s more or less everything we hoped it would be.
