Bad title, its not really what article is about, but good read and nice work you guys are doing.
Any plans to support affinity designer i think it will be massive next year
TLDR: yes its open just not very human readable.
Thanks for the clarification. :) Your TLDR is correct. We hope to be support Adobe Xd and Adobe Illustrator first, but once we have that, Affinity might be next. We're already talking with Serif (the guys behind Affinity Designer).
We found out was that Photoshop is no longer in the lead.
Such a misleading quote.
The source is hardly reliable.
Data was taken from a small sample. To imply it's industry wide is wrong.
Just to clarify, the article literally says:
This year we have assessed data from over 1,000,000 Photoshop and Sketch designs that were uploaded to Avocode in 2016, and one of the most curious things we found out was that Photoshop is no longer in the lead.
It doesn't imply it's industry wide.
Additionally, we have been talking with founders from other design services (prototyping and collaboration platforms) and they confirmed to us that they're also seeing the rise of Sketch in their data.
