What does the launch of V2 mean for existing users? Do I have to upgrade?

Upgrading is completely optional and, if you wish, you can continue to use the original apps for as long as you like. While V1 will no longer receive any feature updates, we will endeavour to fix any critical issues which may be caused by operating system updates for as long as is reasonable to do so.

Is V2 a paid-for upgrade? If so, is it subscription-free like V1?

Yes and yes. If you wish to upgrade to V2 you will need to pay, but as with V1, you only need to make a one-off payment—no subscription required.

How is Version 2 different from the original apps?

Equipped with a completely redesigned UI, hundreds of timesaving tools and a ton of brilliant new features, Version 2 is a next-level creative experience. Read more on our What’s New in V2 page.

Can I take out a free trial of Version 2 apps?

Yes! We offer 30-day free trials of all the apps, as well as the Universal License so you can try them all together to experience the full power of Affinity.

Will V2 receive free updates?
