The app has flaws
This is a useful app if you don’t want to watch classes in your web browser, but you must have WiFi for the app to be of any use. I “downloaded” classes in the app before an extended camping trip, anticipating a lack of WiFi. Much to my surprise, when I tried to open it to view the classes I had “downloaded”, I got a sign-in screen. You can’t sign in without WiFi. When I contacted support about the matter, I received instructions to enable data usage on my phone, but I’m not using my phone! My iPad doesn’t have cellular data, also, most of the time if I don’t have WiFi I also don’t have a cell signal on my phone.
The Creativebug response to this problem: “ If your Ipad does not allow date (data) usage, then you will indeed need WiFi in order to use the app! Apologies!”
The other annoying issue I have, which also applies to the classes online, is that when you stop a lesson part way through it doesn’t resume where you left off. You have to fast forward through the part you already saw, or watch it all over again.
Developer Response ,
Hi there, I wanted to let you know that this issue has been fixed. So sorry to keep you from crafting off-line! We hope your next crafting excursion goes better now that the download feature has been fixed.
I thought this video was great! I’m not sure why people have negative attitudes I guess they do not get the “Happy Planner” idea. The planner is just that it’s to let each individual design and decorate their planner exactly the way they want it. There are NO right or wrong ways which makes this planner even better!! I call mine my Bible. She goes everywhere I go. You could call me old school.....you cannot trust your phone or computer they can crash and poof its all gone. I appreciate you ladies for coming up with such an awesome idea!! I mean who smiles when they have to pay a bill but when you have cute stickers it makes it fun!!! Thank you again for sharing this idea for the consumer!! For the negative Nancy’s out there maybe you should invest in the grumpy girl calendar because clearly you do not grasp this wonderfully perfect idea!!!!!
Basic functionality portal to online subscription service content
This app is simply an app-ified interface to the content available online; as such, I’ll attempt to leave my opinion of the content itself to another venue.
The app, while visually smooth, is lacking in basic features one would expect for a paid subscription service - such as account management (which I suspect may be a calculated move to complicate cancelling subscription or auto-renewal) and help resources. There’s not a mention or a link to be found to the fully featured webpage.
Navigating the app requires constant clicking to view info that ought to be presented up front; there’s no way to identify if an offering is a 2-minute blurb or an actual full multi-hour course without opening the full details; same goes for bookmarking. There’s not even a way to view the multi-course curriculum paths that are available online, which is one of the core features of the whole system!
A quick note on the content... the legacy stuff is good, wonderful multi-hour courses that build on earlier lessons step by step, appealing for beginners and experienced alike.
I could do without the YouTube-style commentary and 5-minute shorts though...
In short: The app serves it purpose, allowing users to view content on their device. I wouldn’t recommend it standalone; be sure to make use of the full feature set on the webpage.
