Affinity V2 launches with all new UI and much more

Developer Serif teased a major overhaul for its Affinity creative suite last week and today V2 of the software is officially available. Arriving with a totally redesigned UI with “hundreds of performance enhancements and workflow improvements,” Affinity V2 aims to be “everything you want in a creative suite.”

Serif launched the Affinity overhaul today for desktop and iPad and it’s made pricing for both individuals and businesses subscription-free. Along with that, it’s offering universal bundles of both the desktop and iPad Affinity apps at a one-time price as well as selling them individually.

For a limited time, Affinity is 40% off to celebrate the launch of V2. That makes it just $99.99 (normally $169.99) for the desktop and iPad bundle.

The Affinity V2 apps for desktop are priced at $69.99 individually but are $40.99 at launch. And the iPad V2 apps are priced at $19.99 individually and $11.99 at launch.
