Today, March 20, Affinity made the following announcements in support of the Creative Community: A new 90-day free trial of the Mac and Windows versions of the whole Affinity suite A 50% discount for those who would rather buy and keep the apps on Mac, Windows PC and iPad The introduction of the 90-day free trial and deeply discounted pricing is done in the hope that this will make life a little easier for people who rely on creative software to make a living, but may be stuck at home without their usual tools, or for students who might not have access to their Affinity apps on their personal devices. We plan to make the free trial and additional discount available until 20 April

This really is a great app speed and fluid use and using the other app on the fly is great and is very flexible. I also used SwiftPublisher in the past this is in another league. Having used Adobe design etc in the past no more this is just great. Also a lot better value for your money.

Love this app. It may be hard to believe but I deleted my QuarkExpress and iNdesign within a week of getting Publisher. Publisher will satisfy almost any publisher and the app gets better day by day!. Support is without rival. Flexible with virtually any file format. Something that gets rarely mentioned all of the Affinity apps integrate into one another main a huge inexpensive magnificent suite!!!

I'm using for about 5 years SwiftPublisher to design posters. It is great, easy and pleasure to use. Before SP I used Pages, but when I discovered SP and what it can do, I never looked back. How it compares to Affinity Publisher ?

The speed of Publisher and ability to pull in the resources of Affinity Designer and Paint on the fly are just awesome. High quality stuff for a good (non-subscription!) price.

Affinity Publisher is really an Adobe InDesign killer for desktop publishing for macOS and Windows. Presently, I'm learning how to use the software. So far, I think it's great. Can't wait for the Publisher workbook to be released! Also, I own the macOS and Windows versions of Designer and Photo - now the suite is complete with Publisher.

The developer “Serif Labs” is famous for developing very high-quality software and Affinity Publisher is surely no exception. However, it’s a pity no DEMO is available as this is a new software and unless someone is willing to take a leap in the dark it’s impossible to evaluate it beforehand.
