I think this is exciting news: 

See this forum reply from one of the Affinity team:…

Lets see what they can come up with!

This is hopeful. I have avoided joining the perpetual payment model of adobe so far. As a nonprofessional, I don’t want to have unlimited spending. Photoshop CS5 does more than I need. So now I have spent on one1 photo, affinity photo and like them both. Affinity seems to do most of what I could do on photoshop. The only time I needed photoshop lately was when I couldn’t get Affinity to cut and paste from a PDF file. 

I am ready to migrate out of Aperture, as this program is glacial on my Mac Air, but does work on the iMac(retina 27 i5) but it crashes quite often. I may move my small library to Photos and test it out, but I am not ready to do so on my main one.

My issue now is that I don’t want to plunge in and throw yet even more money on these new apps (MacPhun for ex) when I only need a decent organizer, and editor that I can rely on being around after I take the time to learn it. As of last week I was resigned to give up and put in for Adobe. Especially since on1 keeps upgrading and charging for it; adobe may end up being cheaper over the course of a few years. So I will wait a few more months. At least with Adobe, I can bail after a year if there is a great alternative to lightroom CC, or suffering with Aperture…

No doubt this is exciting. My question is whether they can include integration into iCloud as a third party, or whether Apple restricts that to it’s own applications. I use that functionality a lot through Aperture (specifically shared photo streams) and that’s one of the biggest things keeping me from switching to Lr.

But you are not tied to iCloud, and especially so for photography; FLICKR’s free offering is excellent and there are other cloud services available.
