    Default Anything like Xara Designer for iPad?

    Making a lot of 1080x1080 images for Instagram lately. Would love to have an all-iPad workflow. Anything like Xara out there for iOS?

    Thanks Handdrawn I'm going with Illustrator for the iPad... it's not Xara, but will do for the simple stuff. Has text, layers, shapes... could be worse. See pic below... this is the kind of social media art I'm doing... simple text and graphics overlays on a photo...

    Illustrator is as good as any, although you may be drawn into the dark side (Adobe ecosystem!)

    I've got Affinity Designer on my iPad which works seamlessly with files from the desktop version (via Dropbox). It's half-price at the moment! (about $14 US).

    Before that I used an an excellent little app called Inkpad - maintained and supported by the husband and wife team Derek and Lindsay Pollard. (Screenshot below showing layers).

    If that is your sole use of Adobe software, it does surprise me since for the simple work as you describe affinity is more than equal to that task and a fraction of the cost.

    Of course, if you already have an Adobe Suite licence, it's free.
