    • Really easy to use, one-time payment, a bunch of tools and especially how fast it is. Guest • Jan 2017 • 4 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 • 2 agrees and 1 disagrees Disagree   Agree

It's a little slow and gummy when you've made a very complicated picture, but it's honestly the best possible alternative I've found. Thank you, and thanks to Gravit. rvanarsdaleMay 2017 Disagree   Agree
