Then I have very exciting news for you!! The Design Space iOS app has JUST been released into our iTunes App stores!! (Feel free to share this post with your friends to let them know!)
You can now download the app in your App store and make In-App purchases in your own currency. No more having to use a US iTunes account!
BUT, before you update the app.... If you have saved any Design Space projects to your iPad (or iPhone) you will need to save them to the Cloud while you're still signed into your US iTunes account.
Click on the Menu button and select My Projects on this iPad
Click on one of your projects. When the preview opens click Save As
Give it a new name if you like then click Save to the Cloud
Once it has saved you will see this message.
Now repeat that for each project you have saved to your device.
If you use several iOS devices with the Design Space app you will need to do the above steps for each one.
Once you've done that you can go on to the next step...
Next you need to uninstall the current version of the app. Hold your finger down on the Cricut Design icon till the image starts to shake then press the X to delete it.
Make sure you have signed out of the US app store (from Settings) and signed into your local iTunes account. Then go to the App store and search Cricut.
Click the Get button and install the new app.
Once you've installed the app you'll be able to download your projects to the iPad again from the Cloud when you need them.
