Yup you heard Affinity Designer is now on Windows in Beta at the moment.. Check it out and sign up for the Beta.
We’ve got some very exciting news to share today—we are going to be launching Affinity on Windows later in the year!
We have to be honest—we’ve been working on this for some time now, but because of the technical challenges involved we have been reluctant to commit to any definite schedule. However, development has gone a lot better than expected. We now have an Alpha build of Affinity Designer running on Windows which is very nearly feature complete—and we are expecting to be able to put that to a public beta in as little as 2-3 months time.
Should you run a Windows set up and want to be one of the first to check it out you can put your name down for the free beta now—it’s open to everyone.
Even if you are exclusively a Mac user we hope you agree this is a positive step. With the Windows versions basically being replicas of what we have done on Mac, including 100% file compatibility, it should improve adoption and file sharing ability for everyone in the future. And importantly we’ve done this with an entirely separate team of Windows developers so it’s not compromising progress of the Mac versions (as it happens we’ve got a couple of great updates to Affinity Designer and Affinity Photo for you in the works right now).
