Update messed up landscape orientation scrolling

Now you can only see the class info below the video window a line at a time because the video window is locked and doesn’t scroll with the rest of the screen. This is very impractical and more than a little frustrating. Also, I can only use portrait in one orientation now and it’s not the one I prefer (apparently I like to use the my iPad upside-down/backwards). Please return it to the way it used to be!

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.

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.
