  • Error message

    By Kam0213
    I’ve been using the cricut app for a year and bought a new iPhone. I’ve been trying to use the app but continuously get a error message saying unable to download offline content. It tells me to delete and reinstall the app if I keep getting the message. I’ve deleted and reinstalled a handle full of times and I still keep getting the error message for code 4.
  • Easy to,use

    By Alexis Tex-Willis :)
    I love this app now that I know how to use it
  • The possibilities!

    By sand.0val
    I love the machine! I always wanted to get it but never got around to it but I’m happy I’m finally an owner 😊 you can literally make anything you want! It does take some time to learn it but there are countless videos on YouTube that help!
  • Highly recommend

    By dogmom26
    Iv been a cricut user for 4 years. I have upgraded up 2x and now have the maker. I run a business off my iPhone 8+ and have little issues with the app. Yes it takes time and patience but once you get the hang of it, it’s so easy!
  • Problems

    By Cody h16
    Same here. I’ve only had mine 3 weeks. Also using the design soace mobile app. Same things happened as far as my images. So I decided to make something without uoloading a image and just did text. Then it said NO MATERIAL SETTING
  • Love Cricut, Design Space Needs Work

    By Dorinajean
    I love using my Cricut machine for everything and the Design Space software makes it super long as it’s working. It seems to be down a lot and has a lot of glitches and bugs.
  • Design space doesn’t load

    By Ipu1275
    Having the same problem as many others. My images won’t load and projects won’t save or load. The app keep loading and gives a blank screen. So frustrating. I have barely used the cricut. iPad and Mac have same problem.
  • down again

    By LoAdams71
    nothing is loading hate when the app randomly decides not to work 😡
  • Stopped working

    By Leise1193
    I am having the same issue as aloha-girl and she posted months ago. There is still no fix??? Not only did the app atop working on my phone and on my iPad. It isn’t working on either laptop I have access (neither are apple incase anyone thinks is an apple issue). So now what??
  • Issues

    By 2019.chem
    I am having issues loading uploaded pictures into my canvas. Pretty much nothing i search for is loading within the app. Very dissatisfied
  • Me too!

    By Kitt654321
    I can’t upload anything. I am having the same issue as the “beginning to wonder why I bought this” review.
  • Great Machine — Faulty App

    By Love this!! 5 Stars!!
    Received this machine as a Christmas present. Downloaded the Cricut Design Space app on my iPhones (XR and XS Max). The app worked great for the first 24 hours. I was able to purchase a monthly, year long subscription to unlock thousands of fonts, images and projects. After the first 24 hours, I was no longer able to use the app. The projects would not load, the texts and images would not load, and my profile could not be accessed. I have tried several searches, looked through many FAQs and re-downloaded the app (3 times) hoping to find answers. So far I am still stuck. Send help.
  • Don’t waste your money

    By javsAndrews
    It’s been four hours since Cricut Design Space is down, I’ve lost all my progress and projects, and nobody knows how to fix this!
  • The app won’t load

    By cashcreations
    I have used the app twice and now it will not load. All I get is the swirl. Very upsetting when I have lots of orders to fill but cannot get on my app.
  • Not Happy!!

    By Nick1234Arm
    DS is ALWAYS down keeping me from completing work. I’m on my 2nd Cricut and I will be switching! If you are thinking about buying a Cricut don’t! Their customer service is TERRIBLE!!
  • Inconsistency

    By Fdjjffsguhgfjordan
    The app works perfectly fine on your fist day of use but if you go back in and try to use it on a different day then nothing on the app works. It won’t even let you view your own profile. I tried making a new account and yet it still doesn’t work, it won’t let you upload any of your images to the mat. Starting to think i wasted 300 bucks
  • Piece of Junk software

    By Madhottdamm
    Bought a new machine and have spent 3hrs trying to get past the new machine setup. It didn’t work with the iPhone/iPad app nor did it work on my Mac. Website kept crashing.
  • Sadly stopped...

    By Angelkiss941
    I have been using the app for two weeks now with no problem what’s so ever. I got on today to finish making my son his shirt.... well sadly the app won’t load any images. I deleted the app then re downloaded it and the same problem accrued. I just want to use my cricut air 2 that cost a lot of money.... so for now I just have an expensive paper weight 😑
  • What’s going on

    By AGutzLA
    Purchased this for my wife for Christmas and haven’t been able to use the app in a week. I have an iPhone and she has a Droid. It’s starting to make me upset I purchased this. Can we please fix the app. Both of us have uninstalled and reinstalled the app and still an issue
  • Great when it works...

    By Mary Pari
    I LOVED this app, but then out of nowhere it stopped working. I couldn’t design anything or see any of my previous designs. I’ve sent an email for help, so we will see how that goes. If they can fix it and I can actually use it again I’ll revise my review.
  • Good app in the beginning

    By jen116678468
    Worked great when I first started using it.. lately there have been too many problems with it loading properly
  • Good, Not Great

    By Daltonpannell
    I enjoy using design space, it’s easy to learn, which makes creating things easier. That being said, design space seems to have many flaws like, freezing, cashing, and being unable to load. The current software seems to be a good starting place but there is plenty of room for improvement.
  • Sluggish at best

    By traceelh
    At first, the app is great, however, it is very dependent on the website and their traffic, I guess, this app is sluggish. the app would be good, if the traffic on their site wouldn’t be too much for them. I’ve checked and rechecked internet speed, and it is not a problem on my end
  • Issues..

    By Bella730
    I have owned my machine for a year. The app has been having issues since I first bought my machine. For a company that has expensive materials, machine and downloads I would expect everything to run better. Why should I keep investing in something that doesn’t dedicate the same investment in their apps and costumers?!
  • Fun

    By ShannonInWonderland
    Great, fairly easy to use.
  • Better than expected

    By SinceCingular
    I have the Explore Air 2. I use the app on my iPhone and MacBook. I was excited that there was an icon automatically downloaded at the top of my laptop, which makes the app so easy to access. It’s pretty easy to use as well. The only issue I have is that there is an error at least once every project that causes the app to restart. After restarting itself, my project is always recovered but it’s just a little annoying that it does this at all. Other than this problem, I love the app! If you guys could work to fix that error, I’d be one happy crafter! Lol
  • Love it!

    By MelDWake
    The only complaint I have is that you cannot use the templates on an iPhone! It would be so helpful if we could have use of that on our phones.
  • Love It! So convenient.

    By abc-/:
    It is great. So easy. If you don't know how do do something there is lots of help available through Cricut and online.
  • Works GREAT!!!

    By SassyEssence
    I’m new to the Cricut world, and only been using since the first of the year. I’ve watched countless YouTube videos and then when I get in this app it is very easy to maneuver around. No complaints. Thank you for making it simple for newbies like me who had no experience. S/N I use this on my iPad
  • New student

    By PhaDiva
    I just received my Cricut for Christmas but haven’t used it much yet. I like knowing how everything works before I jump into something. I love the lessons on your website & YouTube has been a great help.
  • All good!

    By no f-ing nicknames left
    Love it! I’m brand new on a Cricut and it couldn’t be easier.
  • So far, so good!

    By WDE99
    I have had a great experience with the Cricut app thus far! Works great with my iPad Pro!
  • Love!

    By Amandahud
    This app is great! I love it, except when it’s slow. That’s annoying!
  • Love it

    By crafting &loving it
    I love my cricut air2. I have an I phone and iPad I use with it. I have no problems at all. I can go from I pad to I phone and fine my projects. I’m sorry some people are having problems. But the Machine it’s self is great. I love it.
  • Hate that you have to use Wi-Fi

    By Sadiemaejo
    It would be so much better if I could use my data to create new projects! I would use the app, my machine, and many more cricut products if the app didn't fail as often as it does. It gets ridiculously irritating when progress on a tedious, time consuming, project disappears. The app also freezes and /or restarts frequently. Otherwise I love my cricut and all of the seemingly infinite different things i can create with it!
  • Love it!

    I LOVE this app! Love working from my phone! I’m making crafts and making $. I LOVE MY CRICUT!!!
  • Easier

    By alliem119
    Despite the fact that my mobile screen is smaller, the mobile app is much easier to use when deleting negative space. I’m loving it!
  • Great App However...

    By Michi520
    App works well while away from my laptop. Only thing that kept me from giving 5 stars is that there are no templates and glitter colors!!! That would make it so much easier when designing away from a laptop or desktop. Please make that feature available please🙏🏽😳
  • Love my cricut

    By LinnyCora
    I use this thing for everything! I couldn’t count how many different things I’ve made! Love it. I do wish the font didn’t cost so much yet they have to make money too and I’m sure I could get it free if I looked harder but it’s ok.
  • Design Space Dream

    By pbaum1939
    Design Space is a dream to use. Use it on my iPhone and my google smart tab. Very easy to design and carry out projects. Love the curved text feature and the contour button helps customize any project. I’ve learned by doing and reading the tutorials. Great app for a great cutting machine.
  • Love it!

    By slayer70
    I love this app. I don't have a computer so i use this exclusively for my Cricut. I do wish that the app have the curve tool like the computer software though. Other than that, very happy with it.
  • Great so far but

    By mizzladii69
    Great app and no issues as far as bugs go but I would love the option for tutorial to be kept on until I am comfortable as I am a new user.
  • Love this app!

    By gamer18409
    This app is easy to use and very helpful. It is very easy to setup and start using. The app tells you what you will need and how it will cut out what you want. There are also so many options to cut out or you can design your own projects if you want to. I personally love this app and think you will too!
  • Cricut

    By MsCrafty456
    When are you guys going to add the option to curve.Its on the desktop but nothing else😩😩😩Please put curve on iPad and iPhone
  • Love this app!

    By DVC Minnie
    I love having the convenience of the Design Space app available to me on my iPhone and iPad. I am able to begin my projects while traveling and the cut them / complete them when I’m home. I actually prefer “cleaning up” the project on my phone vs my desktop.
