Calling all Silhouette users—Silhouette America’s PixScan™ technology is going mobile!

With PixScan™ Mobile, you get the entire PixScan™ experience right on your tablet, smart phone, or other app enabled devices.

Here’s how it works:

Using your device’s camera, take a picture of your project*.
Use the app’s trace, offset, or erase features to setup your perfect cut job.
Send your design right to your Silhouette**—the app takes care of the rest!

Silhouette America recommends a 5MP camera to utilise Silhouette PixScan™

Please do not run the Silhouette Studio desktop application while using the Pixscan Mobile App, this may cause the inability to send designs to the connected Silhouette Machine.

*Your Project needs to be placed onto a Silhouette PixScan™ Mat
**You will need to install Silhouette Link™ on a host PC to send your project from a Mobile device to a Silhouette Cutter

Still learning but cool so far

This app could use a better tutorial for sure but I just played around with it and it worked well for me on my iPad. At first I could not get the picture to process like in the other reviews. What worked for me: I put the pixscan mat on my tile floor (make sure no other background clutter is around the mat) and stood slightly to the side so I wouldn't cast any shadows, made sure there were no shadows or glares of light, and took the pic at a slight angle and it processed perfectly! I have not sent my design to the printer yet so I'm not sure how that will go. I will update my review after I do. I hope this helps some of you that are having issues getting your pics to process.

If I could leave zero stars I would. This is garbage.

I am so annoyed. For whatever reason the ability to save the picture to my phone's hard drive is disabled. Not being able to save the photo defeats the purpose of having the app. You need the ability to save the photo on your phone so that you can pull it up on your computer. Then the instructions state you must have the silhouette mobile app installed to send the picture from this app to your computer. Ok. I went and downloaded thwt app. Guess what? That app doesn't work either. What a joke. I will not buy anothet Silhouette product. Don't waste your time.

Use to, now it doesn’t...

I have not really used the app, however I have opened it up a couple of times to see what it looked like and i had no problems... until yesterday. Yesterday evening, I opened the app and the pop up notification requesting to use the camera on my iPhone came up and I selected yes, now, it will not cancel to go back to the apps main screen. The issue has crossed over to my iPad, making the app unusable. I am going to delete the app and re-download. Whatever the outcome I will come back to regrade.
