Ratings and Reviews
Optimize for sketch pens and Apple Pencil
As far as being able to utilize this app version of Silhouette to replace the computer software version, that is a definite NO.
However, I think this app has some real potential if they fine tune some aspects of this app:
I use my iPad primarily by using the app ProCreate and the Apple Pencil for my lettering. I then import the digital image into Silhouette and trace it so that it makes that image vector. This process works wonderfully if I wish to cut the lettering and cut it into vinyl. However, there have been some projects where I know that I want to use my sketch pens, and outlining my lettering or drawing does not work as well with this process because I need a single vector line for the smaller details (versus the double outline of the traced image).
I was really excited when I realized that I could use my Apple Pencil with the vector capabilities with this app. However, after using for awhile, I soon found out that the software is not precise enough with its lines; it doesn’t draw lines with a curve. Instead, it seems to draw a bunch of small straight lines. It almost “snaps” to certain points on the grid (even though I have snap to grid turned off).
The second thing I would like this app to have is the capability to import an image onto the art board.
Lastly, it would be easier to design either on layers or at least the capability to group.
Amazingly user friendly!
Compared to cricut software? This program rocks! please.....I don't know what the other guy is talking about, but.....I don't normally write reviews of anything, but I just got through trying out this software and it is really great! Functions great! It is basic, but has what you need to do stencils for signs and vinyl decals, and more, which is my main use right now. Sure if you want more bells and whistles and advanced functions to edit graphics and vectors download other apps like photoshop suite and there are definitely other vector apps with more stuff in them, but if you want straight forward and simple this is it. I love it, no clutter. Edit your stuff with another app and then pop it in there! Sweet! Thank you for great functionality.
Open Source app
You should Open Source the app and provide information on how to wirelessly communicate with your machines. I have waited 2 years to buy a Cameo 3 for simple red color plot & cut for a business product. I use iPad (and Unix PC), not Microsoft or Apple desktop PC. Cricut Maker has Design Space app for iPad with a version history of updates. You cannot design an app for iPad. Case in point: your mandatory login to Silhouette cloud as a prerequisite to using your app. I create my own designs using Encapsulated PostScript language or 3rd party drawing tools so why would I need your cloud? Your multilevel marketing scheme shows itself in every counter-productive promotion plan you do, including this trap app. So before you have your Going Out Of Business promotion, please Open Source how to control your legacy devices. Then I can support a device that actually works. (Put your sources on Github so we can fix the problem!)
