The New Craftsy App Is HERE and It’s FREE!

Hey there Craftsy members,

My name is Chandler, I work on our mobile team here at Craftsy, and I’m super excited to show you what we’ve been up to recently. It has been quite the journey for Craftsy since our first launch on iPad 18 months ago. Since then, the app has been downloaded more than 1 million times and for many of our members, the app is now their Craftsy “home.” Today, the app gets used in places and ways we never expected, from kitchens and sewing rooms to local knitting clubs and more!

Our team of engineers has been super busy over the last few months working on transforming your Craftsy app experience, and today, we’re excited to announce even more ways you can use your app, whether you are on an iPhone or an iPad. Check it out and please let me know what you think by emailing directly (mobilechandler@craftsy.com) or by emailing our wonderful support team (feedback@craftsy.com).

Enjoy!

Here’s what’s new:

Screenshot of Craftsy App Offline Feature

Watch your classes anytime, anywhere (who needs Internet anyway?)

The app now works offline, so you can download your classes, notes and materials and access them even when you don’t have an Internet connection!

Craftsy iPad App Video Player

Navigate your classes more easily

A brand new design for our class experience. Our old controls were too small and we thought you should be focused on your class not worrying about hitting the right button. Enjoy larger, easier to use controls for play, pause, volume, airplay and 30-second repeat.

Find your next lesson fast

Craftsy iPad App Airplay Feature

Use your app like a remote

With airplay, the Craftsy app now works like a remote. Watch your favorite instructors on a TV and turn your iPad/iPhone into an awesome learning environment with full-screen notes, discussions, projects or your class materials.

Want patterns? We’ve got them too.

You called (and emailed and texted and..) and we heard! By popular demand, we’ve added your pattern library to the Craftsy classes app so you can easily access your patterns.

Download the Craftsy 2.3 app now!

Which features of our new app are you most excited about?

Craftsy Helen – I can access my class from my tablet but only to watch the videos. The message at the bottom of the screen after clicking on materials is: “This is the Mobil version of the Craftsy video player. If you would like to access the course materials, take notes, or view discussions, please visit this site from your computers.” In other words I have no access to the course materials unless I use a computer or Apple product.

Okay…awesome….I love the “downloadability”…..I was one (I’m sure of very many) who requested this change……but, they are ALL right…..please give us Android access….Apple has fallen out of favor with a lot of us. I know a lot of folks still like it, and that’s cool….but I don’t want to buy a new ipad (and I’ll never have an iphone) because I like Kindle and really big phones. I love Craftsy, but I really need it in the Android market. Please make this happen. We only ask because we really love our Craftsy classes…

What about streaming to a TV that is not Apple driven? Would be really nice if I could download the Craftsy app through Roku.

I would love to be able to watch it through Roku instead of trying to watch crocheting videos from a tablet on my lap when my project is taking that spot. I don’t want to have to sit at my dining table so my tablet has some place to sit…hehe

I am having trouble getting to the controls ( playback, speed, lessons) It doesn’t seem to matter where I tap, I can’t get the controls to come up. I have tried the corners with single tap, double tap, two finger tap, three finger tap and don’t get any controls except to turn the darn program off. I can’t find a tutorial on youtube and I am getting frustrated. Please tell me where I can find an iPad tutorial about Craftsy.

I was able to watch Craftsy on my Kindle Fire HD up until about 3 weeks ago now nothing. This is very frustrating. I have an iPhone but the screen is so small. Please can we gave an app for Kindle so that we can continue to enjoy your lessons.

I totally agree with dawnrc63. My ability to watch on my Kindle Fire HD just disappeared. I’m afraid to purchase any more classes in case we never get access. I used my Kindle next to my sewing machine. My computer is on another floor. Several people have asked for a timeline. No response from Craftsy. Sigh.
