This November, Adobe released the long-awaited iPad version of Photoshop, which promises to facilitate the work of professionals who use both the tablet and the computer.
However, many complained about the limitations of functions in this first version, as it was more than a year of development. In addition to charging a monthly subscription to use, there are already other options on the App Store that do much more than the Adobe solution.
Taking advantage of the wave of criticism, the Affinity Photo app has halved its price, which alone is less than a simple Photoshop monthly fee.
THE Affinity Photo it is considered an excellent graphics manipulation application, with advanced options in the iPad version. With the absence of Photoshop, it gained space in the market, being one of the preferred options of professionals in the field.
Now Adobe’s solution has finally been presented, but it is being attacked harshly in two points: the lack of more advanced functions and the constant payment model through subscription.
The people at Affinity Photo wasted no time: they cut the price of the app in half, which ends up costing less than a simple monthly subscription fee from Adobe. In Brazil, it costs R $ 37.90, while Photoshop’s iPad plan costs R $ 40.90 monthly.
And on the competitor’s website, they make it clear: without subscription and with 50% discount. In fact, you only need to pay once to access the full app and its future updates.
Of course, for those who work with Adobe and already have access to Creative Cloud packages on other platforms, using Photoshop on the iPad is free of extra costs. However, those who just want to have a powerful graphic tool on the tablet and are looking for a solution, Adobe’s monthly values end up weighing heavily in their pockets. For a single price, Affinity ends up being the best choice from a cost / benefit point of view.
For those who want to take advantage of the price reduction, the link to Affinity is this.
