Complete capabilities for a fraction of the price

Pros: It has all possible capabilities for professional designers, usable intuitively once the procedures are learned. Above all, the price is very low, perfect for freelancers and small businesses.

Cons: It does have a learning curve because it can do so much, but it ends up handling fairly intuitively. Professionals need all those capabilities, so that's the price you pay for being able to do what you want.

Overall: I'd like to mention that the company, Representative has made amazingly capable products for design, publishing, etc. at very low prices, products that I used regularly for 20 years as owner of a company and as freelancer.

Super easy software which...

Pros: Has reduced my time in two other programs (Photoshop and Illustrator) and is less heavy on system resources. Interface is simple and familiar to those who have used Photoshop. Serif aren't looking to redesign the wheel but offer a faster way of achieving similar results.

Cons: Has some limitations when compared to Illustrator but for most users this will be more than enough

Overall: A good midweight design program that achieves the same results for a one off price rather than a monthly subscription.

Great Affordable Design Software

Pros: Affinity Designer has thought through several of the most commonly used design features and enhanced them to make it faster and easier to use than most design software. It is affordable and has extensive font options.

Cons: The one thing that has frustrated me for a while is it does not have any live trace options. It would be great to have this option. The other thing is that the workspace organization complicated at times. overall it is easy to use though.

Good for tweaking plots for papers

Pros: I love it ease of use. I'm not an artist by any measure. Yet, I could still use this software to fulfil my professional needs: to make illustrations and tweak the visuals of plots for research papers.

Cons: It lack some features that would be useful for me. For instance, it doesn't support parametric fonts.

I also would love if it had support for mathematical expressions, but I realize that this would be too much.

And finally, when I open a PDF, it seems to always vectorise all text. That's really undesirable.

Overall: It fulfils my needs (tweaking plots and creating illustration for research papers).

My needs are very niche and casual. It seems like a expensive software to such casual use, but I'm glad that it's a one time purchase only and I don't need to care about a recurrent subscription.

Best Bang for your Buck

Pros: Ease of use, performance, and....basically, everything

Cons: For the moment, nothing. I had some trouble getting used to it, but that's because I was used to Illustrator.

Overall: It's been great, no bugs, no freezes (happened to me a lot with Adobe stuff), no monthly payments.

It's super fast so it improved my work experience a lot.

Over the moon with this app.

Pros: Great range of functions and easy to learn and use. I purchased Affinity Designer to complement a Watcom tablet. Didn't want to pay the big photoshop money and AD was a great deal cheaper and has the same (as far as I know) functionality. I've been using it consistently for 6 months and keep getting more proficient and learning new things.

Cons: Hardly a negative, but so much functionality it tends to be a bit overwhelming. The different personas were also a bit confusing at first. Minor stuff!

Overall: Very positive - I was a pixelmator user because I like simplicity but this is several steps up.

Amazing Alternative to Illustrator

Pros: Cost and Function! These two factors blow Adobe Illustrator out of the water. For only 40-50 bucks you can have a fully functioning program with almost all of the same functions as adobe illustrator. A designers dream

Cons: Some of the advanced functions of Adobe Illustrator aren't in place yet. Smart function of drawing an outline around a picture is not there yet.

Overall: This program is amazing for designers of any kind. It has a very involved community and the creators will not implement an update unless it is extremely intuitive and effective.

Illustrator replacement? Yes!

Pros: Affinity Designer lets us do all that Illustrator does for a fraction of the costs.

Cons: There is not much not to like about Affinity Designer. Yes, some things are in a different location than in Illustrator. Not a big deal.

Overall: Affinity Designer is a no brainer. Just get it and save money.

Excellent Alternative to Photoshop

Pros: Affinity is fairly intuitive for people who are switching from Photoshop. I really like paying a single, reasonable price as opposed to the Adobe Photoshop subscription.

Cons: I wish here was a magenetic lasso tool. That's the main issue I've discovered.
