  • Great

    By Ashleigh Baugh
    This app is great I’ve been able to do almost everything I want. The one thing that I really want to be Abel to do that seems to be missing is the ability to curve text. I don’t have a computer right now and I am only able to use the app. Adding this function would be a great addition. But it is so easy to use.

    By Bastropian
    I love this app. I use it more on my IPAD. I have made several items with this app.
  • Love it

    By vinylcutfreak
    It work great
  • Cricut Air. 2

    By LiliB61
    I received the Cricut air 2 for Christmas. So far I’ve used it, through the app, to make photo booth props, banners and signs for my daughter’s gender reveal party. I love it! I was hesitant at first because I was so used to using the original Cricut. The app is user-friendly and I made everything quickly with no issues. I can’t wait until her shower to pump out some more decorations.

    Absolutely in love with how I can design and come back and hook up to Bluetooth and cut. Awesome
  • Pretty Good

    By GrammaTweety
    I like using this App except when trying to select items to attach, group or weld. It's difficult to do in the App from my iPad and way easier to do via my laptop. Otherwise I would've given it 5-Stars.
  • Great app

    By Dis niggahhhh
    Great app for quick and easy projects, but missing a lot of the functions of the desktop version that would make it easy to use for more complicated things.
  • Very handy APP

    By aCUTEness DESIGNS
    I love there’s an app that allows me to create while I’m on the go. I’ve been a Cricut fan for years. I will always try whatever Cricut designs. Awesome Awesome!!
  • Couldn’t purchase design

    By mkesjw
    No matter what network, Verizon, AT&T, barns and noble one networkOr app (iOS, Android) I AM NOT ABLE TO PURCHASE my design. Website doesn’t work. Say network not connected . Frustrating as all get out. Geeeze
  • Great...then it wasn’t.

    By Bobbyaya Kappa
    I have used the app daily for a little over a month now. I had no complaints and I absolutely loved my Maker and this app. But now, using my iPad, I cannot find an option to calibrate or even USE the knife blade anywhere! I have scoured the internet and can’t find a solution. This is preventing me from growing my business!
  • Im so mad

    By Cat 33333
    I spent 40 minutes trying to get snapmat to work nothing everyone in my family tried no one could the scan automatically feature is a lie
  • Awesome Program

    By Muhjah
    I love this app. Best thing ever ❤️
  • Very easy to use

    By mrszwiers
    I have had my machine for just over a year and still learning new things all the time. The app is very user friendly, and I would highly recommend it!
  • Love

    By Tamarachow
    I just love 💕this app. Easy to use and Will recommend to all my friends.
  • Like it

    By AP7582
    Like this app very much.
  • Not beginner friendly

    By Nana Nitro
    While this app and the design portion of it isn’t very user friendly for beginners, if you persist it pays off! I really am enjoying it and my new cricut air 2 ☺️
  • Won’t work unless connected to internet

    By mmfoy
    App is fine.... unless you aren’t connected to the internet! What is the point of having a portable app if it has to be connected to the internet??? I want to work on projects wherever I am at - I design much of my own stuff and import it to design space, and it doesn’t require me using the internet, but I have to be connected in order to import off my own files?? And the maker is Bluetooth connected - again, should not need internet connection. Super annoying. Fix it.
  • It’s great

    By Ladiebug0
    Love it use it all the time :)
  • Cricut Design Space App

    By LEOwife2010
    This app is typically user friendly until recently I updated the app and now I am constantly receiving “Preparing” on every option I select. This causes the app to show the busy circle and it slows down the process.

  • Please fix...

    By TiredAndSick
    Design Space has been crashing and force closing for too long now. This issue makes it impossible to complete projects under deadlines. It also prevents you from SAVING your project after doing ALL THAT WORK! So much time wasted. Please fix!
  • Works great but

    By Cmclarke
    I've had a Cricut since way back in the infomercial days. I've stuck with them through the law suite so I have some Cricut experience. I wish Cricut had more diverse content to African Americans. I must say it has increased just a little over the years. They still seem to have so many childlike images and those images are not very diverse. I do love love love the various silhouette images Cricut has. However, I was trying to find a plain female silhouette manikin type figure. no poses bald head or no hair plain hairstyle with no clothing in silhouette form there is none. In every female silhouette image there was movement (unless it was representing maternity) or the images were presented in an unnatural posture generally presenting with long straight hair. Forget about a silhouette Afro. I decided to check out the female teen images. I was shocked to see that many of the female images were presented as if in high heels or in postures which made the rear seem to protrude with hands on hips or posed in unnatural positions. The images of the males seem more natural. Anyway didn't find what I was looking for. I'm just saying just give me what I want. Cricut does have some great cartridges. It would be nice if a favorites or wishlist feature was added to the cartridge section so that I would not have to search the list each time to find the next one I want to purchase. One other thing of note. If you purchase cartridges outside of the app save your receipt because you may have problems with redeeming the cartridge and customer services will not help without proof of purchase even though you have the code from the card.
  • Buggy app makes it useless

    By Missodessa
    I have project files in the cloud which work fine from a computer but when opening them on the iPad app some of the layers do not show up. Hard to customize a design if certain elements don’t even show up. also the fluidity of the app its self is terrible it’s not as user friendly as the desktop version.
  • Love it on IOS!!

    By 1247KiK!
    I’ve tried the app on both android and IOS. The app is much more user friendly on IOS whereas the android is definitely a work in progress!! I wish you guys can update the app for all android users so that they can design better on the go!!
  • Can’t search

    By liunav
    Image search is not be available. I pay for cricut access and it’s unusable. Searching thru thousands of images for the right one is ridiculous and now my $400 machine is kind of useless. Please hire some IT and actually fix it. We pay enough money that our software shouldn’t have these glitches every update. Plus the setting tab hasn’t worked since December. Not very happy with this software.
  • What’s Going On?

    By SamAtchley
    I can no longer access images?? Can you please fix this?!??!?
  • Latest update does not work!!!

    By fixit2019
    For the past 2 years Design Space worked great on my iPad. The latest update has totally screwed it up. Nothing is working. All it does is spin and say “preparing”. What’s the problem people? Why aren’t you fixing this? I want to use my Cricut!!!!!
  • Love my cricut explore air 2

    By Babyphat1986
    Love this app and the cricut machine do my work easy and I don’t have to making with my on hand love i love it I can ask for more
  • Quick and easy

    By BlueTshirts
    This app is quick and easy to use on the Cricut machine. Makes designing simple and fun!
  • User friendly

    By Moni7xo
    Has a couple of glitches but over all great. Just save your work often so you don’t lose work. Also, runs slow/lags if design is too large. Beware that large files won’t save.
  • Newbie

    By Mdewithluv18
    So far so good!
  • Not worth it

    By SoonLuuc
    The first and ONLY thing I see is “get premium access. Only $1.99” That’s it! Can’t do anything, nothing, nada!!!
  • Last update broke my design space app

    DO NOT INSTALL the LAST UPATE for DEsign Space unless want to spend hours fixing any saved project files with system fonts because this last update has a bug that uninstalls your system fonts used in your projects! Your projects look like normal until you open them! I have contacted Cricut for the last two weeks and have uninstalled the app and reinstalled and no fix! Still waiting for a fix to the bug....and a call from Cricut!
  • Seamless App

    By kjpickering
    I love using this app on my phone to creat projects. It syncs perfectly with my machine every time!
  • Love my cricut!

    By Bye Bye Jason's Deli
    I have the Explore 2 and am so pleased with it and design space. They are all a little intimidating at first because there are endless possibilities with them. There are tons of tutorials which are extremely helpful. The only negative and the reason for only 4 stars is the expense of cricut products. I would love to add a big cricut press to my tools but it is just too expensive for me at this time. Maybe some day I will get there and until then I will continue to enjoy my explorer 2 and design space.
  • Super Satisfied....

    By Cocozoey1
    It’s been a year that I’ve had my Explore Air2 working.... I’m so... super satisfied with it and the Design Space App... it takes time and patience but I would do it all over again.... and again... ty Cricut....
  • New to Cricut

    By Nana2sixtoo
    Still struggling with finding my way but watching tutorials to help. My daughter is working our way thru it as well but still feel a bit frustrated. Can’t wait to be proficient using it.
  • Great program!

    By LeeDCobb
    Love this stuff! Cricut is the best. I’m so addicted!
  • Better than on a computer

    By BekaFaythe
    I find this app easier to move around than on my computer!
  • Always use when on the go!

    By dhdhskfhaboi
    When I have an idea of a craft I can throw it together on the go, and it is saved for when I can get to it. Great app, and easy to use.
  • App not working like it should

    By gigiloveheartbeat
    Half the time this app does not work. I can not see the projects, it is just blank on the pictures . The app needs work. Don’t get me wrong I love the app but it is frustrating when it is not working and I want to do a project.
  • Makes Designing Easier

    By Miafaye22
    I’ve heard many horror stories about Cricut Design Studio going down. True, most of these stories were posted by Silhouette users, but still, I was leery. I did weeks of research before deciding to purchase the Maker over a Silhouette. I’ve been using DS for 3 months now and haven’t had a single problem. Having used the Silhouette program before purchasing my Cricut Maker, I can say I MUCH prefer the Cricut Design Studio and I love being able to use the app on my iPad in tandem with my laptop. I’ve found that while I still prefer to complete final touches on my laptop, I love the ease of designing on my iPad while lounging on the couch! To import and clean up images, it’s the best! I only gave it 4 stars instead of 5 because I feel it’s not quite as robust as designing on my laptop, but I’m sure it will continue to improve. Thanks for giving us the option Cricut! I’m SO happy with my choice to purchase a Cricut product.
  • One thing I would change

    By DreamWithFaith
    Everything on this app is wonderful but the biggest thing I would change is update it so it can CURVE FONTS
  • Off line internet used

    By j.griffith
    I love it because my internet router keeps shouting off all the time at enety time all time I had to reboot my router each time my router shouts off it is a pain in butt I do not know why it does that I have 75 MBs a secant internet speed I will be much happier if you can install knife Blade so I can used it on my Ipad 2019 model 9.5 inch screen with 130 MB storage space and ten hours battery life before recharging why is the Knife Blade not installed with the rest of info installing why is that ?
