Expert Reviews

What reviewers liked

This may seem like a step backward, but the major benefit is you can get the Explore One for cheaper compared to the original.
This is a highly powerful software that can be accessed via either an iPhone, iPad, Android, Windows or Mac computers. You only need to log in to the system and you’ll find dozens of gorgeous pre-made projects. That means you can select from thousands of ready-made projects. And the nicest part of this Design Space software is that you only need to select and click the “Make It Now” button. So, this is a highly straightforward product to use.
