Here's what was confirmed today and what we know so far...
The free Silhouette Studio Mobile app will be available for Apple and Android users and can be used on phones and tablets.
The beta version of the Studio mobile app will include limited editing functions. Users will be able to open designs, rotate, group, ungroup, add cut lines and access their libraries and cloud storage from the mobile app.
Silhouette Studio mobile users will be able to send designs to cut from their handheld devices, but it's important to know it's not completely Bluetooth and you can't send directly from phone to die cutter. Instead, another device - such as a computer - must be used as a "host" device. That means mobile users can send to cut to their Silhouette CAMEO, CAMEO 2, Portrait and Curio as long as the cutting machine is hooked up to the host computer. Of course you'll also need to be next to your machine to load the mat and material.
Future versions of the app are likely to include the ability to add text, freehand drawings, fill with colors and patterns and other basic design features. A firm date on when the full version will be released hasn't been confirmed yet, but SA is hoping for a November or December release date.
