So much easier to use!

Design space is quite complex and takes a definite learning curve (along with the maker)! I have ruined lots of materials and shed many tears trying to navigate design space. I bought makers for a friend and a couple family members years ago and none of them have made anything. They are intimidated by design space and how to start. This app is so much easier to use! Pick your project, pick your design and make it. It is super user friendly and I definitely recommend it to first time users who want to DIY but don’t know where to start. A perfect match to the joy machine.

iPhone Cricut Joy App

I was overwhelmed when I got my Cricut Joy. I thought it was more of a beginners way to learn how to expand my crafting. After experiencing a beginner’s confusion with learning to write with my Joy I contacted customer support. Not only did the associate know less than myself, he talked to a supervisor. His advice was that I needed to just get the Cricut Joy App for my iPhone. The app seems to imply it will be easier to create. There is no apparent way to go back once you have started. I have deleted more projects than I have created. The App relies heavily on paying for Cricut Access. Why would I pay full price when the app has such limited abilities? I have a laptop which works just fine. By the way there are little to no free card inserts available. The Cricut Joy is a card making machine. If I had known how difficult getting writing only fonts would be as well as indicating my machine is a Joy on Design Space and you can ruin a card by getting the “bubble” effect while trying to write inside the card I would not have bought the Joy. The Cricut Joy makes half a card or rather a blank card in minutes. Truly customizing one takes much, much longer.

App or computer will not work

App and computer keep getting stock even with the application up-to-date, I used to be able to use a few funds for free now I cannot print anything for free so it’s making me pay for this description, I don’t use it for business I use it for home and I don’t make the tags all the time so it’s not worth for me to pay the monthly fees, I just wanted to make quick name tags for my daughter stuff once in a while. It has taken me an hour to set up everything because the applications keep getting shut down, I’m very computer savvy so it has nothing to do with how well I managed the application either in the computer or the phone. It is a great machine but they need to work on their software and give you a little bit more options for free since I already pay for the machine.

Developer Response ,

Thanks for your response. We appreciate it. Can you tell us the device you are using at We will try to evaluate the issue and get back to you.
