Quick Tour of Cricut Design Space for Android
Let’s take a peek at the Android app for Design Space.
The Home screen allows you to select existing projects, or create a new project from scratch.
The upper left menu allows you to sort projects by category and view saved projects. The upper right tabs allow you to switch between the Home, Canvas, and Mat screens.
The canvas allows you to create your designs, where you can either import designs or create your own from scratch.
The mat preview allows you to rearrange and copy designs on the mat before you cut.
The Android app for Design Space was originally announced as far back as November 2016 and beta was released in January 2017. It has come a long way but still lags behind desktop and iOS when it comes functionality.
As of 2020 there are still numerous complaints from users when it comes to Design Space for Android functionality. The app may do the trick for you if you are in a bind but you’ll get much more success using your PC or Mac with Design Space and a lot less headaches.
