Learn about the new Cricut Design Space for Desktop Beta coming soon that will allow you to use your Cricut offline, while you’re not connected to the Internet!
You all know how much I love crafting my Cricut cutting machines, yes? One of the great things about Cricut is the free design software for them called Cricut Design Space. Well for the longest time, this software was only available in a web browser or mobile app. But NOW you can get download it as an application for your Mac or Windows desktop, which means you can use it OFFLINE and whether or not you have Internet access! This is HUGE, especially for anyone who travels or lives without reliable Internet. Cricut Design Space for Desktop means you can use your Cricut anytime and anywhere!
AND even if you do have reliable Internet access most of the time like me, the desktop version is more direct, more stable, and faster, so everything just works even better! With Design Space for Desktop, you are less likely to crash. You won’t need to deal with downloading the plugin as it auto-updates for you. And, of course, you can design while you’re offline. What I think I love the MOST about Design Space for Desktop is how it looks identical to what we’re used with the browser based version. That means it’s just download and play.
Of course, if you’re a fan of the web-based or mobile versions of Design Space, they’re not going anywhere and there are no plans to remove them. And your Cricut Access subscription, if you have one, transfers over, as do your purchases and projects.
Now one very important thing to note is that while the application is available freely to everyone to download and use right now, it’s not quite fully functional yet — we don’t yet have the ability to CONNECT to the Cricut cloud with it. This functionality is going to be available by the end of the year in 2019. The Cricut team is hard at work to get offline functionality ready to release. When the “Offline” feature does work, you will still need to be connected to the Internet to browse the Cricut library. But once connected, you can browse through the entire project library, and save what you like for offline use. That saved content will be available for 30 days from the last time you were connected to the Internet.
Q: When is the the “Offline” feature coming?
A: In mid-September 2019, the Offline feature will start rolling out to members who downloaded the early-release version of Design Space for Desktop (the Beta version of the software that I linked to earlier in this post). By the end of 2019 – maybe sooner – this feature will be available to everyone who downloads the Design Space for Desktop app. So download the app by September 10 and you have a chance to be selected for the offline feature earlier rather than later!
Q: Can I get a better chance to get into the beta for Offline feature?
If you download the Desktop application, you’re in the beta. Even better, download it by Sept. 10 to “get to the front of the line” for the chance to be chosen to test offline.
Q: What computers can I install Design Space for Desktop on?
Mac and Windows. You cannot install it on a Chromebook or Unix/Linux.
Q: I have a laptop, not a desktop. Can I still use Design Space for Desktop?
Yes! It works on both Windows and Mac desktops and laptops.
Q: What if I use an iPad? Can I work offline?
The iOS app already has the ability to work offline — just install the Design Space app on your iPad or iPhone and you’re good to go! This announcement only applies to the desktop version.
Q: Will Design Space for Desktop be free or paid?
A: It’s free!!
