Best crafts app.
Must get. Better than any other craft app, like Snapguide, Etsy, Guide central and Kids Crafts! So many crafts! I wish that there was like a note thing so you can add a note to the craft like "use the gold paint in the basement"I don't think you should add the possibility to add your own craft, because then people would use it as social media.
Every afternoon (except Sundays) new projects are posted! This app is filled with tutorials and inspiration, really great stuff! The favorites feature is perfect for saving projects for later, and there is a randomize function for finding older tutorials.
Recently started crashing
I love this app so much, but after the recent iOS 9 update, I can't do anything without it crashing. I literally open the app, tap on an item and *boom* crash. I've tried soft resets and deleting and redownloading, but all that does is fix it for maybe a minute or two, the it crashes again, reverting back to the same old scenario. I've loved this app for years and now I'm sad. :-(
