  • Resizes Uploaded Files

    By AndroidBound
    I recently purchased printable planner stickers from an Etsy shop. In order to use the stickers in my planner the images must maintain their original size. Every time I upload the images into Design Space the dimensions of the image are resized to a ridiculously larger size. This happens every time I try to upload a .svg, .png, and .jpg. I contacted Cricut and spoke to Rohit KH who said it was the purchased Etsy file and not Design Space. Determined to prove it was the Design Space software (iPad and PC) I used Photoshop and Illustrator to create and upload my own original images into Design Space. My original images were also resized when uploaded to Design Space. The “dimensions” of the picture were changed such that you can’t resize the image once it’s in Design Space and get the original dimensions (just in case anyone who reads this thinks this is a solution). The dimensions varied greatly from the original image even after using Design Space to resize the image. After wasting several hours adjusting an image thinking I could get the original dimensions spot on, I quit, because I couldn’t. I will update this review if this problem is fixed. In the meantime if you plan on cutting dimension specific images, I suggest you NOT use Cricut Design Space. **UPDATE** After 2 weeks of determination (GATech degree = no technology will ever get the best of me) I was able to print and cut my planner stickers. I cropped the image to about half the sheet of stickers and then uploaded the image into Design Space, and after about 15-20 minutes of adjustments (the next set should only take about 5 minutes) I got the size close enough to use the stickers in my planner. IDK, I was extremely close to purchasing a competitor’s product but refused because frankly I’ve invested way too much in Cricut products (Maker, Explore Air 2, Expression, Create, and of course cartridges and images). Cricut needs to fix this (I purchased a $400 machine, so I expect the software to perform as it should ), but for now I’m going to move the competitor’s product to my “Save for later” list just in case.
  • Love

    Very easy to use even for a beginner like me.
  • Love the app!!

    By Brandijolawsonjadee
    I love everything about working in the app! It’s so easy to move things around and line stuff up with the x/y guides. I’m still very new to the cricut world so this helps me so much!!
  • Amazing App

    By MsButtafly
    So much easier than using the computer. Snap mat feature is out of this world. I give this 4 stars only because offset & curved letters aren’t available.
  • Crafting Heaven!

    By Crafter Noon
    This app works so well on my iPad I could stay in my craft room for hours working with it! I do my designs on an IMac, then go to my craft room and use the iPad to set up and print. Very rarely do I have problems and when I do, I can figure out the issue myself. Very user friendly and I'm not a tech geek! Just a 58 year old with a creative mind😀
  • Signs me out and deletes my projects 🤬

    This app signs me out from time to time. Today I logged back in to find that all of my projects are GONE.
  • Great App

    By Jignapat
    I really like this app. I am new to the paper cutting machines and went straight for the Cricut Maker for the fabric cutting capabilities. I think the learning curve is pretty short. I feel the app is intuitive. Plus there are tons of tutorials on how to work in design space. Both from Cricut and this affiliate bloggers. and my Maker machine.
  • Templates

    By GlitzGlamCouture
    I wish cricut would implement templates into mobile app & android app since I don’t always have access to my laptop it would make my like so much better.
  • Love it!

    By Michi520
    Love the app. Only gave it 4 stars due to not having the ability to utilize the templates for better and more accurate designing...unless I’m overlooking it.
  • Went from great to useless

    By SeanAerospace
    This was an excellent app until the update. Does no one test the updates anymore??!! Open the app and a few seconds later it crashes. Tried everything, it’s toast!!! Hoping it gets fixed so I can use the machine again. Another update today and still it crashes.
