An amazing 2017 for us has been crowned today with the news that Affinity Photo for iPad is officially Apple’s App of the Year 2017!
Announcing Affinity Photo as the App of the Year for 2017, Apple described it as: “an uncompromisingly excellent tool,” adding: “Affinity Photo is a pro grade photo editor and illustration tool that has wowed not just us, but the professional users and enthusiastic amateurs that it serves, too. This isn’t a jack-of-all-trades app, it’s a master of all.”
From launching on-stage during the keynote at WWDC in June to this latest accolade, it’s been an unbelievable six months for Affinity Photo for iPad. We’ve been blown away by the response, not just from within the tech and photography industries but from thousands and thousands of customers who have justified our vision that a no-compromise, professional photo editing app was possible on iPad.
Affinity Photo for iPad truly is the first fully-featured, truly professional photo editing tool for iOS, redefining photo editing by exploiting the explosive power of the iPad’s hardware and touch capabilities.
Each tool, panel and control has been completely reimagined to optimise for touch – either with fingertip or Apple Pencil. All rendering, adjustments and filter effects have been fully hardware-accelerated and the result is a genuinely unique new way to interact with your images and your iPad, with performance you’ll find hard to believe.
Using iOS 11’s Files app, users can simply drag and drop a chosen image, or multiple images, and start editing. This harnesses the full power of techniques such as HDR, panoramas and focus merge, which require the selection of multiple images.
Affinity Photo for iPad draws its heritage from the desktop version of Affinity Photo, which was selected by Apple as Mac App of the Year in 2015.
Affinity Photo for iPad is compatible with the iPad Air 2, iPad 2017, iPad Pro 9.7-inch, 10.5-inch and 12.9-inch.
