Just received a new AWESOME Glowforge Pro. And did my first (super) print via browser.
Then I was trying to look for the iOS app, but… couldn’t find it on Italian App Store.
Then I tried with my US App Store login, but didn’t find it either.
Does it really exist an iOS/iPad app?
Welcome to the community! And congratulations on receiving your Glowforge. To my knowledge there is no GF app. You will access the UI just as you did…using a web browser and the address for the Glowforge app. online. Have a great time!
Yet a native app, with the potential to use the Apple pencil and quick/easy sharing with other vectorial apps, would be perfect for rapid prototyping tasks (like where we’re in to, with our designers team).
Interesting! I downloaded the app last year. I just checked and it still opens up without an error message, but I don’t see it on the AppStore either. I’m supposed to be sleeping right now so am not going to check out if it still connects. I used to use it occasionally when my Glowforge was still in the garage. I would do all design work on the laptop, upload the file, then just use the iPad to run the job in the garage. In reality, he iPad app provides far less control over the interface, so in that sense it is not preferred. Only thing it has going for it, is that you can look at all your uploaded files at one glance.
I have the app, but today when I search the App Store for “Glowforge” the only result that comes back is BoxOMatic. Also, when trying to update my Glowforge app I receive a message that the item no longer exists. RIP Glowforge App
We saw that more iOS users were using their mobile browser than the iPhone beta app, so we decided to take it down for now. To use your Glowforge from your phone, just go to app.glowforge.com from your phone’s browser.
