Recorded 11th November 2018
This week news (at least news that interested us much) was a bit thin on the ground so we were very happy to be joined by Andrius Gailiunas of Pixelmator to talk about Pixelmator Pro, the current beta, why the Pro verison is the future and why, for now, there isn’t an iPad version on the horizon.

- Everyone should have a font manager… I really do believe that. So I highly recommend FontBase — All platforms. Professional features. Beautiful UI. Totally free. FontBase is the font manager of the new generation, built by designers, for designers.
Essential Apple is not affiliated with or paid to promote any of these services… We recommend services that we use ourselves and feel are either unique or outstanding in their field, or in some cases are just the best value for money in our opinion.
