    • It has all the tools I need, minus the junk I never use, and it's a one-time price that is very reasonable; no subscription model! Guest • Nov 2016 • 18 agrees and 2 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Really easy to use, one-time payment, a bunch of tools and especially how fast it is. Guest • Jan 2017 • 14 agrees and 1 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • As a veteran user of vector software from the beginning with MacDrawPro onto Freehand and then Illustrator, I consider Affinity Designer to be the most intuitive and user friendly of them all, amazing when you look at the size of the development team. Illustrator is a little more feature rich on the clever tool front but nothing that I really miss and the people at Serif continue to roll out updates – joy to use and now my default app, I can't sing their praises enough. Very well done! mailkosJan 2017 • 10 agrees and 2 disagrees Disagree   Agree
