  • App crashing constantly..

    By SumrLuvr
    Updated app review as of 10/21 it's working great. Thanks so much for the quick update. iPhone 8 plus...updated. Deleted the app added back still completely unusable. 😔😏 Love the new features if it would actually work with them.
  • Huge bug!

    By MandiStack
    I tried to use the app today, kept getting an error message, deleted the app, and still getting the same error message. “Offline content. Unable to download content for offline use. Error code:4” Otpions were OK or Retry. Both selections bring the error message back or shut down the app. Please fix this! PS - Developer: Please read the part that I mentioned I ALREADY deleted the app and reinstalled. While I appreciate that you took the time to respond, I wish you had actually READ my review. I already did what you said - and it didn’t fix the problem.
  • Very good

    By Tngomaureen
    Overall, very good app. There are some limitations, and if you're a designer used to Photoshop, the choices are a bit limiting (Cricut folks, check out the Silhouette app, just sayin'...). But, generally, I have no complaints. VERY user friendly!! And the Cricut machine itself is amazing.
  • So close and yet so far (developer commented but didn’t read my review)

    By r8erz
    UPDATE: “Developers” “commented” on this review asking me to try the new version. This review is for the new version - whoever responded clearly didn’t read the review. Actually - anyone who reviewed this new version of the app is getting a canned response from the developers - which says to try the new version and tell them what we think. They’re asking me to try the new version - as a response to when I review the new version. - We want to upgrade to a Cricut Maker but are waiting until the iOS app is better. We don’t have a desktop anymore. They added image upload but it only takes photos from my photo library - which means we can’t use SVG while in iOS. (Because the photo library won’t save SVG files) They need to support iOS 11 drag and drop on the iPad. And Multitasking. We should be able to open Files and drag things from our iCloud or Dropbox or local files - using the Files app - and drop it onto Cricut Design Space. I stand by my 3 star score. This app needs to support the features of iOS for people who don’t buy desktop computers... I am however deducting one star due to the canned “response” from the developer. Bad PR. There are also lots of little annoying quirks. Like tying to open another app while using Cricut design space - Cricut doesn’t allow side by side for some reason then the other app gets stuck and then you have to go to the home screen then back into Cricut. Cricut is not supporting iOS 11 uses well. So close though. At least we can get some artwork in (PNG works well). Also - MAJOR ANNOYANCE: in the “clean up” functionality after you import an image - the floating image in the top left sits over your zoomed in tool - so you can never get to the top left of your image to clean it up - the overlay is always there and there is no way to move it. Can’t use clean up when importing an image. - It is fall 2017 - many people use iPad exclusively. With the iPad Pro we don’t even need a computer in the house. The iOS app needs to support image upload. The iOS app should have _more_ features than the web site. Mobile is the future. iOS 11 supports all kinds of drag & drop and multi-window views on the iPad. It’s completely doable.
  • HORRAY! upload image feature!

    By Waist of $$$
    No longer a major disappointment!! The app now allows you upload your own images from your mobile device rather than waist time back and forth to PC! As a designer accustomed to photoshop tools i have to agree what another reviewer mentioned about adding the ability to curve text and the need for an erase tool in addition to "slice"...... Both features would greatly improve versatility and overall functionality of a circuit machine.
  • Updates Undone

    By melliellieokm
    Since I updated my iPhone and updated the app, my app keeps crashing. It worked pretty well before, but I’m looking forward to using the upload feature once the app let’s me get far enough to start cutting anything...
  • Crashes

    By qcteach
    With the new update, every time I go to insert an image it closes out the app. So frustrating!
  • Thanks

    By lupita1215
    Omg I’m loving the new update. Before I wasn’t able to upload images from my phone because I didn’t have access to a laptop yet. It was so frustrating. Today I found out cricut has this new tool and I’m so happy. Thank you so much!
  • Frustrated!

    By deebabe3
    Just download the new mobile app update and it keeps crashing on me! I was excited to see the ability to finally upload and then I have lost my design 3 times!! Ugh! I also keep getting an error code 4 - unable to download off line content. I have an iPhone 8. I would really like to use the app rather than have to lug a laptop around. Please fix the crashing! I would give a better rating if the errors and crashing would be fixed.
  • Crashing

    My app keeps crashing since the update. It will only stay open for a few seconds.
