I finally got to the opportunity to comparing the design software of the Cricut explore and silhouette cameo. With the cricut explore it comes with an ONLINE based software called Design Space. Design Space comes with the ability to import .svg into their cloud base system for free. The Silhouette Cameo comes with the Standard Silhouette Studio software. You are able to purchase the designer edition of this software, which gives you the ability to upload .svg files into your files. This is a one time cost of anywhere between 25-40 dollars. Even though you need to be online to download the software and your images, you are able to use the program and cut offline and this DOES NOT require an internet connection. I wanted to clarify this before you watch the video so you knew exactly which software I was comparing. In this video I will show you other comparisons of the two software's, the subscription services and why i feel one is a better option at this point. This is a long video so feel free to fast forward parts that you do not feel you need to watch, however I had a lot to cover in the comparison when looking at what both of the companies offer.
* Please note I am comparing the software as of 03/12/2014. Cricut has stated that they are currently working on upgrades and additions to their software. However I am reviewing these software as "out of the box" and what they currently offer to the consumer and not what they are promising the customer.
