Cricut Joy: Quick & Simple DIY Positive Reviews
So much easier to use!Design space is quite complex and takes a definite learning curve (along with the maker)! I have ruined lots of materials and shed many tears trying to navigate design space. I bought makers for a friend and a couple family members years ago and none of them have made anything. They are intimidated by design space and how to start. This app is so much easier to use! Pick your project, pick your design and make it. It is super user friendly and I definitely recommend it to first time users who want to DIY but don’t know where to start. A perfect match to the joy machine..Version: 1.0.1
Excellent for the old and the youngI bought 2 Joys, one for me and one for my 7 year old granddaughter. With this app, I no longer have to hover over her and help her. The app is very easy for her to use. I use it on my iPad Pro and she uses it on her regular iPad. Yes, the app is for an iPhone, but we just expand the screen as neither one of us has an iPhone. It is quick and easy for uncomplicated projects.
I do need to experiment some more, but for her, it is perfect!!!.Version: 1.0
No card optionI like the app it does make using the joy a lot easier but one of the main features of the joy is the card maker and this app does not have the cards on it which was disappointing. Also it said one of my items was to big upon adding it, I made it smaller and it still would not let me proceed. Obviously it’s newer and the glitches need to be worked out but I do hope they add the cards to this app. Overall everything else is easy to use and figure out. I also like how it gives links to a website on extra instructions on how to use certain material..Version: 1.0
Linda StarksI was really on the fence about getting the joy, because I have the other machines .. I have to tell you it is the best thing ! I truly enjoy it . So compact and easy to take with me . I just grab and go , almost every thing is there for me.. The card mat is the greatest.. I’m so glad I took the plunge. I also got the case and love it .. the other machines a great too but to big to take where I go. They are for at home and my larger projects . Thank You Cricut !!!.Version: 2.1.0
Easy to NavigateThis Application specifically for the Cricut JOY is beyond simple. The App. Is so user friendly, I can design (with so many chooses), gather my items & make a card in less than 10 mins. With this new app for the JOY your creativeness has just expanded with the ease of navigating the app, portability, size & just all around making fun projects. EnJOY all the projects you make..Version: 1.0
Much improvedI downloaded this app when it first came out and found it glitchy and I wasn’t able to do much with it at all. When I signed in today I was pleasantly surprised to see that I was able to make an easy project no problem. It’s very pared down compared to the full app—I think beginners would find it easy to use. I do wish that it made cards! Cards are my favorite Joy project so this is something I wish was included..Version: 1.2.0
Simple, Easy to Use! I love it!Since this is my first Cricut machine, I was a little overwhelmed with design space, but not now. This app makes creating on my JOY simple and easy to use. All the tools are at my finger tips! And don’t forget the portability factor. With this app and the size of the JOY, it is absolutely possible to craft from anywhere! Thank you Cricut! ❤️❤️❤️.Version: 1.0
Simple. Fast. Awesome.The label making in this app is so fast. The styles look incredible and the selection is actually really good. I really love how easy it is the merge and subtract different images - so much easier just dealing with one layer. Really excited for more improvements but for now, definitely five stars..Version: 1.0.1
The solution I was looking forBeing new to the cricut world and crafting in general, this app makes it so simple. The app is intuitive and for someone that’s not very tech savvy, it’s helpful that it takes me step by step - I’ve already created labels for half my pantry!.Version: 1.0.1
It’s great, when it actually works.When I first downloaded this app, everything worked fine, but now that I’ve had it a few months, it’s very slow & glitchy. I’ll be mid project, and the app will just close itself. And it’s not just once or twice, it’s upwards of 8-10 times, no matter how many times I restart the app..Version: 2.1.0
Fun and Easy to Use!I love that Cricut decided to create a separate app for the Cricut Joy. It makes it easier and faster to create cards, stickers and more! I love that they provide the base of what you can create and then you take it from there. Very well done!.Version: 3.0.0
Great to use on the iphoneI never liked using design space on my phone. This app makes it so easy to make projects on my cricut joy from my iPhone. I’m so glad they came out with this!.Version: 1.0
Awesome if you love labeling!This app makes it so easy to whip up quick labels with your Cricut Joy. It’s great for simple labeling projects all over the house. I’m hoping they’ll add the insert cards to it soon!.Version: 1.1.1
Love it two requestsAdd an undo button
Add ability to save without making it. This allows the user to design stuff anywhere and make it later.
Much easier to use then design space..Version: 2.0.1
Easy to use but..So easy to use but keeps closing as I am looking through all the images. Seems to be a bug. Please fix!
Also it could use a search button to make it easier to look through almost 500
Both apps neededYou need to set up the cricut joy in design space before the joy will work in the joy app but once it’s set up, it works great. Just know that you need both apps before it will work..Version: 3.0.0
Great tool to make the Joy even more user friendlyQuick and easy to set up and use!!.Version: 1.0.1
Nice little app for small projectsI was able to create vinyl labels super quick. Easy to use. Love how it is laid out. Easy to follow. Wish you could make cards with it! I would love more fonts as well. :).Version: 1.2.0

IPad versionI’d love this so much more if it was full screen on the iPad/optimized for iPad. Love the idea though and not having to get out the computer to make a card..Version: 2.0.0
Work on it..I never can figure out how to measure. Y’all need to make it more easy for people. Like make the measurement the same as in the mate so you can cut the vinyl right m. WORK ON THAT!!!!.Version: 3.0.0
