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 (firstname.lastname@example.org) or by emailing our wonderful support team (email@example.com).
Here’s what’s new:
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!
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

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.
