TheGravedigger's Review of CraftsyReviewed on 6/15/18 1:24 AM
This is the most unstable app I’ve used in quite some time. It frequently refuses to start, and then crashes during use. Now, it is “unable to load your video”. This has necessitated re-installing the app and then re-downloading my classes. Rest assured, I’m not buying any more classes until this issue is solved.
Kaywakaywa's Review of CraftsyReviewed on 6/1/18 12:22 AM
I would much rather just get on my computer to look at something. It's so glitchy that it's hard to search for anything. Every time I click the free patterns button, all it shows are patterns that you have to pay for. I'll probably delete it from my phone just because it's really hard to find what you are looking for. I'm just going to use my computer if I really need to get on craftsy.
MsFlinstone's Review of CraftsyReviewed on 5/4/18 1:13 AM
I just watched my first class that is very good, one of the few free ones and I really like it, but it does not have the connection to the Chromecast, so I cannot see it on the tv, which would be really nice and useful.

perryl8's Review of CraftsyReviewed on 3/6/18 12:56 AM
Fast forward to Craftsy App for iPad Feb 2018 .. The app is optimized for shopping and not learning. The landing page is the store and not the library of classes that I bought. When viewing instructional videos, I must turn off my iPad to pause the video - this "feature" negates any benefit that the 30-second repeat ever provided. Myriad of other new bad features and optimization of none of the good features. Again one-star as this new release is one step questionably forward / 3 steps definitely backwards. At least the technical team is consistent - consistently out of step with the frequent end-users. Or maybe the technical upgrades are driven by Marketing - which is all wrong because they are noticeably even more out of step. --- Many problems were fixed in the Craftsy App (circa 2014); Now its 10/2016 and a new app update, I assume, is the reason why my Craftsy videos are the wrong size for my iPad?!? The edges (top, bottom, left/right) of videos is cut off ... Therefore I cannot see the complete knitting pattern that the instructor is talking about; Titles, captions, and important notes are also truncated so that I have no idea what the instuctor is talking about. Does the technical team rolling out updates perform the required testing?? Because there are a lot of disappointing flaws that are too obvious to miss if proper testing had been done before releasing to customers. I love the Craftsy service and overall product and I feel very sad that such excellent content is s****** up by the poor implementation of the technical delivery medium. Also the new website must be s****** up ... I did not purchas a class that I would have bought yesterday because I got an email offering the class at $19.99 and when I go to the website to pay, the shopping cart lists my purchase price at $29.99; The new website is more of a barrier than portal for business transactions. ---------------- (Review for Craftsy App Update circa 2014) I am a diehard fan of Craftsy classes - and the new Craftsy iPad App has an excellent new topic navigation menu ... But there are some major and deliberately designed flaws: 1) Full screen video has been ?lost 2) When I open an enrolled class the new crApp assumes I want to watch a video and immediatly gets stuck trying to download & buffer the video where I last left off ... BUT that is often NOT what I want to get STUCK doing ... other scenarios include: downloading class handouts, looking at chat, reviewing course outline, and with the new crApp, It gets stuck buffering video and I never am able to do the other stuff. I think I HATE this new crApp update!

Ssgilby's Review of CraftsyReviewed on 2/7/18 7:07 PM
I’ve had this app for a year or two, and it used to work just fine. Now, however, it’s unusable for me on both my iPad and my iPhone. On the iPad (older version) it crashes every time I get a minute or two into watching a class. I’ve tried downloading the class to see if that would allow me to watch it, but it will not download. It works even less on my iPhone 8. When I try to open my list of classes, all I get is an “Unable to open page” error message. I’ve tried uninstalling and reinstalling on both devices. Essentially, this app is useless now, and I haven’t even had success trying to watch classes on the website. Not sure what the issue is, but it’s very frustrating that I can’t access classes I’ve paid money for. Not happy.

Since the new upgrade on Dec 7, 2017, when I try to open the app it seems that it is going to open but only the orange screen with the logo pops up on my iPad and then immediately disappears. I've tried and tried with the same results. I even went to the App Store to see if I needed to "Get" the app. It just says "Open". I don't want to remove it and reload it because then I will have to download all my classes again. May end up having to do this in the end.

I am new to Craftsy and have downloaded a number of classes, including sewing, serger, fashion illustration, and a number of baking classes. The quality of the videos is very good. It’s handy to download the classes to my iPad so that I can watch them when not connected to wi-fi. I’m a happy camper.
iac1003's Review of CraftsyReviewed on 12/5/17 9:11 PM
I love the Craftsy classes and instructors but now the app won’t open for me and is totally useless. I have deleted and reloaded the app to no avail. This issue occurred after I attempted to post a photo of my project in the discussion section. I emailed tech support who has now told me this is a known bug with iOs so that people using iPhones or iPads will not be able to use the Craftsy app after they attempt to post a photo. Tech support could not tell me when this will be fixed. This situation is ridiculous as you cannot access the discussion section without the app. The instructors give much important information while answering questions in the discussion section. I certainly won’t be buying more Craftsy products until they fix this bug and I am sorry I just bought 2 more classes.
milehigolf's Review of CraftsyReviewed on 12/5/17 6:55 PM
Since my cabinet-bound old sewing machine prevented me from attending local quilting classes when I decided to start quilting, I discovered the ease and wonder of Craftsy classes with very knowledgeable and experienced instructors!! Having these classes available on my iPad whenever I want is ideal. Now that I’m finishing my 4th quilt (with a new sewing machine!!), I’m about to re-watch the class on binding. Thanks, Craftsy and all the great instructors!!

Cmclarke's Review of CraftsyReviewed on 12/23/18 12:50 PM
I've been on Craftsy since it started. They have a great selection of classes. I've enrolled in 130 classes with Craftsy. It's a great app. I use it often. However the app crashes sometimes and is not available at other times. Frequently this happens when there is a special price on the classes. (Generally that's when I purchase classes) They seem to fix the problems quickly but I find this to be very frustrating especially when the attraction for Craftsy is accessibility at any time. Thus the low rating. But all in all the classes are worth the price.

Very very frustrating. I use both iPhone 6+ running “11.1. some thing or other”. My iPad is Generation 2 updated to latest Apple Software. CRAFTSY APP CRASHES UPON TOUCHING THE ICON....WILL NOT OPEN. I use this app everyday & having it not open is beyond naughty!!!!! Please fix ASAP!!

Bcr8ve's Review of CraftsyReviewed on 11/4/17 4:16 PM
The iPad version of this app allows you to download classes for offline viewing, but offers no way of organizing classes. It's obvious objective is to sell classes. Thus, it rather begrudgingly allows you to view the classes you've already bought. I quit using the Android version (which does not support d/l classes--grrrr) after an update made it massively frustrating. This app's only redeeming quality is the ability to view classes offline. I love the Craftsy website, and recommend it frequently. But I have no enthusiasm for the app.

Eunique's Review of CraftsyReviewed on 11/28/17 7:31 AM
Update 11/24/2917 - the good news is that Craftsy has done a good job of fixing the playback issues, and have categorized the classes so they are a bit easier to find. And the class quality is still second to none. But..the app is still a bit unstable. I can watch the classes pretty well, but the features like discussions, or posting a question are unreliable. Sometimes they work, sometimes they don’t, and sometimes they cause the app to crash. And these features have been totally removed from the mobile website, which was my backup during bug fixes. Upping my review to 3 stars because Craftsy still has the best quality classes, and tech support is very good, but I wish the app was a bit more stable. I rely on the app because I just don’t want to sit at my computer to watch these classes. Update 10/31/2916 - oh dear. Craftsy you have taken my absolute favorite app from 5 stars to 2. This latest version is really broken. I can't find my classes by category. If I do find them, they won't play. As someone else stated it looks like you are trying to become Etsy. 2 stars because You had a great app and I trust you will fix it. But 1 question - didn't ANYONE test this??? I have been using Craftsy for a long time (I have over 50 classes) and the class content deserves 5 stars for the quality of instructors and variety of topics. Regarding the app - I started using Craftsy when it was only available on line. Craftsy has done a great job of incorporating the online features into the app, making the mobile aspect great. Best features: -Ability to take and edit notes that bookmark the place in the video -30 second rewind with a continuous loop feature so you can master techniques -Class discussions so you can see QA from other uses -great customer support -Classes are yours forever -Easy to download class materials - classes can be downloaded to watch anywhere Overall, this is one of my best and most used apps. Highly, highly recommend

The downloading is cumbersome but probably all for the good as file sizes can be big. Interface is intuitive and doesn't require much of a learning curve.

I love shopping the craftsy classes on the app and watching them through the app or on my iPad. The classes are very well done and the app makes it easy to access them. Thank you!!!’

What happened after IOS 11 et. al.? App will not open despite restarts this is especially true when trying to watch when in airplane mode. 😕

I just love this app!! It is like your are the only one in the classroom, only you can rewind or watch multiple times. All techniques are clearly presented with easy to follow instructions. I would recommend this app to all who want to learn in the privacy of their home. Wonderful!!!!

Wonderful platform. Just wish we could stream on my tv thru roku , google play, or Apple tv.

Glad I can download class sessions since I don’t have internet access at home, but there for a day or two it didn’t work. I hope deleting and reinstalling fixed it—ut works today.

netwebb's Review of CraftsyReviewed on 11/12/17 4:28 PM
I’m a fan of both Craftsy and the app. It is easy to download individual class segments to watch when I don’t have access to WiFi. Since the space on my phone is limited, it is also easy to delete class segments that I have already watched. Wish all apps were this useful. Also wish there was a Craftsy app for Kindle Fire.

I have lots of everything sold here & especially that designers have a place to sell their patterns. I have a huge number & enjoy that part of Craftsy because they have heart!!!

I have had this app. On every IPad that I’ve owned. I love the ease in using this app. I love their classes and the variety of crafts. I think their platform is still one of the best online. I highly recommend this app if you knit.
GwynniePooh's Review of CraftsyReviewed on 10/31/17 9:44 PM
I finally had time to develop my oil painting skills, found Craftsy, and have improved by leaps and bounds. When I want to learn something specific I go to the class in my library and practice. When I need something new I can scroll through the offered classes and get a sample of what the instructor is like, and if they will cover what I want before I purchase.

These apps are just the ticket. I take my iPad to my sewing room and it's As if I have my own private instructor! And they don't complain when I have them repeat a step! (Sometimes over and over! 😳)
Elli_belle's Review of CraftsyReviewed on 10/31/17 12:51 PM
The shopping and pattern portion of this app works fantastically. My concern is with the class interfaces (not the classes themselves, the classes are very well made). When you’re in the class list, it will usually shoot to the top of the list when you get into and out of classes. Which is annoying if you accidentally click one while scrolling and you have to start over. However, the most maddening feature is not being able to navigate the discussions. I can look at discussion posts, post, and reply, but the back arrow to return to the main discussion feed does not work. Example: I have a question during the video and see that another student has asked it. I click on the question, see the feedback, and then I’m stuck. The only want to get back to the main discussion is to close the entire video and reopen it. Since this video list automatically starts me at the top, I have to search for the video Every. single. time.
Machine Embroiderer's Review of CraftsyReviewed on 10/28/17 8:38 PM
Every time I post a question with a photo to my instructor since the newest update, the app crashes. After that it keeps crashing upon opening until I delete the app and reinstall it. Then the minute I post a question with a photo attached, it repeats that crash. I do not recommend this app. The website is terrible and useless, does not include the discussion part of your course and they pretty much forces you to use the faulty app. I have purchased many courses and no longer have the ability to ask questions that I need to post a photo with. Not a happy camper. Yes, my device has plenty of room. Yes everything is updated. Yes, I loved it until this last update, but it is no longer usable since the website is terrible and forces you to use the app. If this issue gets fixed it will be four stars because even the app is not very user friendly. When you do post a question, it is hard to find it to see any reply you might get. That is another big problem.

curlybrwnbaby's Review of CraftsyReviewed on 10/25/17 4:21 PM
Previously when posting to the discussion section I was able to go back and read the instructors comments as well as other posters questions with the “scrolling+” icon. This has since disappeared with the update and I’m unable to view the discussion topics and comments unless I want to be stuck on the one comment I attempted to view. Please fix this!

dmitch1966's Review of CraftsyReviewed on 10/23/17 2:22 AM
This app used to be a really good app, then it was “upgraded“ and now you can’t view projects in the app, in class comments you can go in to review answers but don’t try and get back out of the answer because you can’t without completely going out of your CLASS. The app asks you every single time you open it and select a class to view if you are enjoying it and if you answer no it asks if you want to provide feedback and DOES NOT take you into your class. What a pain in the butt, I pay for the classes and want to use them... not to review the app. Put back the functionality y’all took away and make the app usable again.

I love that you can download a lesson if you need to go someplace off the grid. Terrific content. Great instructors.
Oluckyme's Review of CraftsyReviewed on 10/22/17 6:02 PM
Edit 10/22/17: The latest version of the app is not working at all on iPhone 8 with latest iOS update. Please fix so I may Craftsy again! The class purchase through iTunes is buggy. Advertised discounts do not show up through iTunes, and receipts are not always sent. There is no purchase history function, which is a must on a site through which one would make multiple purchases over time. Response to touch commands can feel laggy, but it does function well for class viewing, allowing users to see class discussions when in portrait mode, and to view full screen when in landscape position.

Cssymonshoughto's Review of CraftsyReviewed on 10/20/17 3:36 PM
Generally if I am watching my classes on Craftsy, the app is great. It works fine. And the platform is still better than anybody else's online crafting courses. However, it has one feature that I HATE: I have over 200 classes, and scrolling through the list on the app to find them is positively mind-numbing. I have to go through page after page, and if I stop to bring one up to look for something, it returns me to the TOP of the list all over again. PLEASE Craftsy, just give me a list, and stop trying to be so d*** slick. The search function is functional, but sometimes I don't know wha time looking for, and finding classes is a real pain. And there is another general issue: Sometimes the app is unreliable in a sense. For example, today I opened discussions to read them, and I can’t get them to collapse so I can look at the rest, even after restarting the app. And in case you are wondering, I work at a college...in tech support, so I’m not exactly a newbie when it comes to how the d*** thing should work. I use my iPad Air 2 typically, and I have excellent band width. There should not be issues with syncing, etc.

The way material is laid out allows nothing to stand between me as a learner and the topics I want to enjoy.

Why pay $20 per class, when you can learn the same things on YouTube for free. Facebook also has plenty of videos you can learn things on. Seems like a waste of money to me.

The Moodmeister's Review of CraftsyReviewed on 10/12/17 4:30 PM
Sure you can watch the Food Network, subscribe to Cook’s illustrated or follow a cookbook recipe. Craftsy is different. It’s as if you have a personal audience with a master. I had struggled to bake sourdough bread using an excellent cookbook. What the book could not convey was the way to get the right hydration of the dough. The Craftsy course was a breakthrough for me. I can recommend the Craftsy platform and courses without reservations. Each course I have purchased has been a gem.
