Videos don't play I have long been a fan of the website. Lately videos have become a big part of various project instructions. For unknown reasons, this app doesn't play videos.

kieran smith

Awesome! I love this app, I use it every day. But having some problems lately uploading my instructables, it begins to upload....does 1/17 images, then it says 'network error' can't upload. I've tried using less images, but no different. And my post is on 6 steps long. I dunno, hoping an update soon will fix it, cos I love this app so much!

K Jones

5 star site but 3 star app Brilliant site for making all sorts but app lags and crashes a lot. I tend to view site in browser now as it is a much nicer experience.

Riley Cathcart

Seems to be missing some things I cant find a lot of things that I found on the actual website.

David Southard

Awesome - I'm obsessed! I love to just see what people think of. It never ceases to amaze me... How creative and generous these folks are to share their ideas so openly!

Michael Bridge

Not quite. Favourites doesn't work so you can't save anything. Other then that, it's quite good.

Holly McCarter

Instructables Absolutely love it!!! Amazing things to try at home. Dare I say, Better than pintrest..!?!.. I am not with any company, and am not a computer generated rater. I really do like this app, and it has helped me make things that I thought were difficult until I saw this app. Hope more people join, and post tons of projects.

paul riley

Frustrated Doesn't save favorites?! Been saving some great information from emails only to find them UNSAVED with the application.? after checking a second time it won't follow designers either.

Dave Movahhed

So many good ideas Anytime i want to make something or start a new project I always look here first

Bhasker Raj

Wonderful Site I love to search Instructables for DIY projects anything from electronic, telescope making, kitchen, wood working , solar from A to Z. Thanks for the team maintaining this excellent web site and posting the latest projects.

Ioannis Latousakis

No G+ sign in Had to log in through chrome using g+, click my profile and select 'open with app'.. Too much trouble. Also, make text in the app selectable, so we can copy parts lists etc to notes

Sai Vidhu

Totally depressed with this ... I have been a huge fan of instructables and that lead me to install this app but for utter disappointment this app only instructs me to connect to the internet even after my phone is connected to the internet .This problem has to be sorted out by AUTODESK asap.

Morgan Drummond

Search engine needs work I tried searching for a project that I stumbled upon once, and the search says that there are no projects matching my description. I found it easier to search for instructable projects on google then just open them on the app

Anita O'Neal

Being a creative person, I am always looking for ideas to spark my creative side. Instructables does that for me. Truly awesome app! Keep up the good work!!

Amber Lindsey

It is always telling me that I don't have internet connection when I know I do. The website works better than the app. Fix and I will give more stars

Refaz Saleem

Need save for offline view. Everything in the app is great, but needs more attention in offline view feature

Sissy Shaw

Read how to make yr own silver ring out of a silver quarter Making homenade jewelry out of metal all around us.

Tien Pham

Please make video play Love the app, but why can't any if the videos play?

Michael Richardson

Great App But... On the web, you can log in using Twitter. The app doesn't allow for that (no direct Twitter option and doesn't recognize it under name/password), so to use the app I would need to make another user name and start all over with adding stuff to favorites? That seems extremely shortsighted and very user-unfriendly. Love the app otherwise but loses so much functionality without this feature.

Scott Bowers

Wont let me log in Cant log in says no internet....facebook and browser working.....not my phone its the App.....ill add stars if fixed

Kevan Christian

I didn't rate it yet? Deserves 10 stars no problems no bugs nothing its so cool.

Fab Muchada

Why i can't upload it in my mobile phone i downloaded the apps and done with the instructions when i completed the instruction and publish it message is network error, even if i have my wifi.

Alexandru Cristian Neagu

The content is amazing Great learning solution, with a very nice interface !! Just love it

Jc Le Roux

It's true I read reviews mentioning connection problems, didn't understand, but it's true, it doesn't work. Very sad... Love making stuff with the kids

Devin Roberts

Instructables I have been using the website for a couple weeks now and have made a few doo-dads from it and when I found out that there is an app I got so stoked because that means that I can now look at it on the go. I'm hoping this meets my expectations of what I am hoping for.

Robert Gunter

Disappointed I love instructables. But, honestly, the app sucks. I can favorite projects that I like, but it never shows up in my favorites tab.

kevin nauth

Can connect to instructables Why doesn't it work anymore?

Basket Players

#CBFE Thx to jawad zeineddine first :** i love u my friend!! #CBFE

Ben Davis

Word Love love love the site. Not buggy app. I dig it with 1 "g"

Sabheeh Ali

Night mode I liked its night mode style very much along with its gui

Pali Domi

Cool But I can't copy any URL from the instructions. Which is very annoying, when I would like to check a material source on the internet via the a added URL. Moreover I can't watch the videos at all.

Craig Calvert

App keeps crashing on phone Have this on Samsung tab 3, occasional crash but generally good. On Sony Xperia it crashes continually.

Nishant Pawar

Great app! I like building useful things, and instructables is completely made for it. If you are creative and like to build something in your extra time, download it now! Thanks


Constantly freezes It keeps on crashing after several minutes...It force closes every five to ten minutes.

Charlotte Pierce

Always find what I'm looking for. Not much wrong with this app; have transferred it to several phones since first starting to use it. Great for browsing for ideas too.

Patricia Olivares

I love this app! Its simple and fun, I would recommend it to everyone.

Rishabh Sharma

Upgrade is worst The app closes as soon as I open it. With a message saying that unfortunately instructables has stopped working.

Susan Akers

Love this app. Very stable, easy to use and so much fascinating information!

Patrick Gates

Awesome My favorite app! I consult it on a variety of projects!

Mr Tiews

Wery useful app Now I now,how to make a paracord bracelet! Thanks.

канал Mr.Fist'a

very cool, but... Please, add russian language, because there are many people, ho know english language very bad (me, for example)

Дмитрий Якубов

Video It dont play video. It seems like a pic, and dont clickable

Женя Переверзев

Awesome app Love your website and installed your app, only one problem-cant login with my Google + acc, and because of that cant look my favorites

Анатолий Юферов

Thanks for the project! I'm from Russia, and recently discovered for myself Instruktavles. It is a pity that we have none, I am embarrassed just the language barrier, but the translator helps! Maybe in the future to introduce other languages, including Russian)))

Alexei Botukh

Cool, but... Please, include the Russian language!!!

Paul Belltower

Nice Very interesting and useful. But, maybe authors will be able to use Google translate for a translation of articles on other languages?

Abbos Mamanazarov

Bad boy Amazing this is the best program for building that I have ever seen

Vladimir Alferyev

Awesome! But why so ugly icon?)

Dan Man

Wow wow wow!

Stop being Nosey

Gr8 but all the sudden.... It won't go to the links I click on from email. Sgn4 with lollipop. It just flashes the home screen for a sec then goes back to the email. Zillow does the same thing now too. Please update if u can. Thanks devs.

serena edwards

It never saves my favorites I can favorite an item but if I want to look it up in my favorites, it says 0 favorites. Unhappy.

Santhosh Kumar

Unable to upload It is very useful app.but iam unable to upload my instructable.which takes a long time to create. waste of time.

Trevor Long

The Greatest Quite possibly the greatest app I've come to discover. Though yes it does have a few technical flaws such as the occasional crash, videos not always working, etc., it makes up for that entirety by being itself. It's a great place for a community of millions to collaborate and learn new things and make the earth a prettier cooler place to live. A huge thanks to those who made!

Dustin Bess

Great place to learn Love instructables! Love to browse thru for new inspiration! Always something cool to try!

Mostafa Baghdadi

Lenovo A6000 Android 4.4 I add a lot of projects to my favorites list, but when I open the list, none of them is there. Instead, I get this phrase: show some love and you will see your favorites here!

Nexus Seven

Aggravating Searches don't save. If you accidentally barely touch the screen wrong, you have to start all over. Searching for specifics has been impossible. Love the website but this makes me never want to use that ever again. Maybe in a few weeks I'll go back to the web but right now all I wanna do is get this crap of my device

Yawar Badri

..... LOG OUT ..... I have to re-login every time I open this application, that is painful. Please fix it

Austin Detzel

Images Won't Upload The app is great but I cannot publish anything because the photos won't upload

Ethan Brooks

I love the app but... Whenever I try to use it now it says it can't connect and I should check my connection but my connection is perfectly fine.

Ted Heatherington

Nice, but falls short for usability The UI adds little (if anything) to a simple browser. Basic features like being able to copy a URL isn't available; why would you "open source" stuff like this and make it harder to use in your app?

Josh Forwood

Can't sign up/log in Same issue as others, impossible to sign up or log in. For me I want to be able to browse and save things whilst of and about then refer to my list when home to build. Until this issue is solved this app is near useless to me!

Fab Montano

Request forbidden Same issue other user had. No reason given and no explanation on how to correct issue. Guess they don't want me as user.

Who Ghost There

Can't even sign up!!! It says "request forbidden by administrative rules". Seriously?! Signing up is against the rules?! What a bunch of BS! Don't even bother downloading until they fix this! Won't work and they don't care!


Install and learn to do stuff. Basically pinterest rips Instructables off on just about everything.. This app/website will teach you how to make just about anything.

Nicole Brockett

Not JUST for the crafty! (See below) I'm one of the least craftiest (ya, I sd it ;) people you'll ever know but with this app the ideas won't I'd I can just find my glue....

andreas b

Frustrating - profile broken? it doesn't show my profile, likes, etc after successfully login in via email. Plz fix! Good thing is: it still saves all likes correctly with my profile (checked on website )

Jason Poe

Needs work. The mobile site is not user friendly so I was glad to see an app, but the main button i use is not there. I was unsuccessful in finding a download pdf button, so i can view it offline. This makes the app pointless in my situation.

Trish K

Log in? I love the website and app, but the app logged me out and won't let me log back in. It will say there is an error and cannot log me in due to "forbidden request". I've uninstalled and reinstalled, as well as rebooted my phone and that has not fixed this. Hope it gets fixed soon. Otherwise, great app.

Raymond Garcia

Sign up issues Made a account. Signed up with face book. Could not publish because I'm not verified. Emailed them and got it working the next morning!

Geo JoaT

Great app, but crashes Really well designed app! only wish you could sort youre liked stuff such as in pintrest. However is consistently (not unusably but still annoying) crashing on Galaxy Note 2

Michael Goodman

Not working I have been using the app for a very long time but now it's horrible. You can't log in, view your favorites, save favorites, or anything it needs fixing immediate.

Jerome Hermoso

Awesome App (: Greatest app, Instructables is a creative and imaginative, innovative, artistic app where you can learn new things, collaborate and enhance your mind in projects. Thanks to the people who shared their ideas and to the developer of this app thanks, you've helped us a lot! 5stars for you (:

Eric Aker

Annoying problem with search When scrolling through hundreds of instructables if you click one and go back guess what your all the way back at the top. Need to fix it where you go back to the area you were.

Hailey Hydro

Can't even sign up I used to have this a while back but deleted it bc I never used it. I've tried 3 times to install this again but it won't let me log in to my old account or make a new one. Aggravating when you want to save something. Would have given a much better rating had this been fixed. PLEASE FIX THIS.

Tanya Dwyer

App is borked Big fan of the actual website and I absolutely love all the crazy and talented contributors (just the general community is supportive and amazing too) but this app sucks camel balls. Why is it an issue to even sign up? Something is seriously broken in the coding. Instructibles community, I call on you! One of you make an instructible of how to make an app that actually works, and be sure to send it to the admins! They obviously need it!

Drew Achong

Missing Vital Components I like that the app mimics the website in general layout. That makes it feel like the same product. Two things I miss from the website are the ability to watch the videos and the ability to add an 'ible to a favorites category. Adding both of those features would be very much appreciated.

Hrudai Bedre

Can't log in can't sign up Really can't login or sign up every time I try it's says html forbidden etc I tried every possible way please correct that

Moe Odatalla

Not stuff ALL DAY! Can't even touch the full site, but a handy app to have for browsing. Definitely agree with other reviewers: videos and gifs on the OP's instructables are key, and searches tend to yield limited results. But hey......I'm still glad to have this on my phone. Now I just gotta post an instructable myself!

Vladimirs Silins

Facebook login fails Can't login via FB. Button turns to "Log out", but error message appears at the same time.

Alex MO

The app is good but... I have a problem, Every time that I turn my phone off my session is closed and my favorites and references are cleared. I asked for help and they answered but now mi username changed and I don't like it.

Dustin Bess

Great place to learn Love instructables! Love to browse thru for new inspiration! Always something cool to try!

Neal Duncan

I don't have any technical problems with this app, but the navigation process could be improved. It seems like content isn't updated that often. I will go a week without checking for a new tutorial, but after a minute or so of scrolling I'm back to the last stuff I saw. It would be nice if there was some kind of random article feature. Or more categories. I'm not really here for cooking or "pinteresty" projects, so it bums me out to see that those are the types that seem to get updated more frequently.

John Lalengmawia

Poor search function Search function is poorly implemented. Couldnt find an i'ble i found from a regular browser even with exact title. Searching with the author name doesnt return anything too.

andreas b

Frustrating - profile broken? it doesn't show my profile, favs, etc after successfully login in via email. Plz fix! Good thing is: it still saves favs correctly with my profile (checked on website )

Dylan Burrows

Can't sign in android 6.0 same issue as others Used to use on 5.1 but with new phone can't log in or make new account! Please update the app!

Amy Johnson

App is buggy I have run into so many problems with this app. Right now, it has my email locked in to the login and it won't take my password. I think it wants my username but I can't reset that field wtf??? Now I am Uninstaller and reinstalling. I love instructables but this app bites!!

Jacob Laputka

Decent The app functions well enough for what it's designed to do. Glitches now and then with it not keeping your place when searching for things, as well as the login fiasco that I was able to reset on my own, makes the app usable for its primary purpose but occasionally causes me to raise one eyebrow with some of the nonsense it goes through.

Ted Van Matje

App is 'wonky'... Logging in via the app and it returns me to my homescreen. Restarted the app a couple of times and 'bingo!' it works! Still, odd behaviour from an app that work flawlessly before ;/

Wayne Quinn

Login won't work When I try to create an account or login through Facebook it won't leave me it keeps saying administration rules please fix

Walt Thomas

It won't let me login Since the update it won't let me login and I can't access my favorites. Once it's fixed and I can login I'll give it the 5☆! I did uninstall and reinstall and still doesn't let me login. Other than that I love it

Troy Davis

Terrible Never keeps me logged in, doesn't remember anything I like or save, search feature never works, displays the same Instructables over and over when scrolling, can't even copy text. Love the site and service, hate the android app. Z3V

Fountains Of Ink

Error Good app. But verry bugged up. Once I try t log in I get some sort of html error.. to bad..

reckless Moron

It's Broken. Okay, I love the instructions on here, really, I do, but I can't do anything with them when the app doesn't want to acknowledge my existence! Somehow I 'lost my password', the app wouldn't let me in and I had to reset it. I had to deal with Outlook on this bloody phone to get the reset code and when I got my password back, the APP ITSELF threw a tantrum and pretended that it couldn't connect to the internet! (to which I checked YouTube which was perfectly fine!)... 0/10, Would not follow instructions again.

Dillon Swanson

User profile fail Love that I can see all the instructables on the go, but hate that user profile is a fail. I log in but don't see any favorited projects and when I favorite one it doesn't show up on my profile, even on the computer. Maybe it's because I log in using my Google+ account? I'm on a galaxy s6. *** Update: lowering to 1 star. Been 5 months since this review and still zero improvement. Login still doesn't sync and it doesn't even save favorites. They're probably spending all their time with the ios app....

Zach Champion

Good Great site, not the best app. Please add a Google sign in; that how I login to the site, I would love to in the app

Megan Disabella

I hate your app Don't get me wrong, the website is amazing and useful. Artists and masters of their crafts are able to share their knowledge easily. Novices can become skillfull in an afternoon. BUT WHAT IS THE POINT OF HAVING AN APP THAT IS USELESS. I CANT SAVE MY FAVORITES, I CANT ACCESS MY FAVORITES BECAUSE I CANNOT LOG IN. I have deleted and reinstalled and got a new phone. Your app sucks.

Abdelrahman Aly

Won't let me login! It won't let me login with Facebook (Error while loading Instructables. Check internet connection.) nor am I able to create an account. (..403 Forbidden... Request Forbidden by administrative rules...) No videos, just pictures with no descriptions, otherwise I'd love the app but it's absolutely useless! Now on Android 6.0.1 Nexus 5x also never worked on my Nexus 5.


Won't let me log in on Facebook or either email ibhave 3 It won't let me log into any account I can on my of but not the app I even reinstalled it like 5 times it was my fave app now its being a pain in the ads I can't upload my projects or save my favorite or collection????!!!!!!!

Marcin Ciosek

Text selecting/copying not working Kills whole purpose of using the app instead of a regular browser.

Fairuz Annabil

Can't Log In w/ Facebook or Sign Up I love this app. It's a must have. Truly. But i got a little problem. I can't log in w/ facebook or even sign up. Can you fix it please?

bren cav

I love instructables but cant contribute It wont let me log in, very frustrating especially when I have advice or ideas I want to share and I can't. I am not impressed, I will still use the app since I do enjoy instructables but less since its so frustrating being blocked from using it properly.

william goetgeluck

Cannot create account to save things Keep getting errors trying to create an account / login

Katrina Sayaang

This is awesome but, This program is great and I cannot argue on that but there is something wrong with the app itself. I used my google acct in signing in using the web based website but it is somehow restricted here on this app. So, I signed up to create another acct and so I did but the app displays login at the top and logout at the bottom when I tapped on the menu. So the last option I have is to connect it woth Facebook and yet the issue is still the same. So,here I am reinstalling this app and hopes that resolves the iss

Erik Hasler

Videos lately I've always loved instructables, but it seems that lately everyone wants to just make a video. That's fine! But the instructables don't have links, or a video! I don't want to only learn when I get to go home and sit down in front of my computer... do SOMETHING! I read the purpose, and phrasing referring to a video, and see the "I made it" button right underneath!

Kelin Leishangthem

Need more features We frequently switch between apps in mobile and accidentally close it. Best part of instructable is pictures and photos in any projects. In our country like India data is costly beside slow connection. It will be a good idea if you added a feature with chache enable option for faster loading on brief exit to favorite projects. My five star rating in pending

Curtis LaPrise

Can't login using Google I have my account tied to my Google account. I can login in the web this way, but not their app!?!?! Logging in should be one of the finest tuned components of an app, as its the main barrier of access to the services inside... I can't believe they would offer different access models for an app than their main site :/ poor engineering...

Crystal Lee

Cant create an account This app would be awesome except that when I try to sign up I get am error message saying something vaque about forbidden request. I tried different user names and passwords. I then tried the sign up thru facebook and it still wont create an account for me. I cant save anything interesting that I might want to do later because of it. This makes the app just about worthless to me. I dont want to waste storage to screen shot the stuff.

Autumn Terry

Cannot save favorites. Unable to create account I am unable to create an acct by using, (log in with my facebook) or by creating a new account. It just keeps giving me an error whenever I try. I have also made sure I have the latest version. I really like this app and wish I could save favorites. Can someone contact me? I will change my rating if I can access all of the features. I am using LG G Flex.

Timothy Ross

No longer works I can't log in since the latest Android OS update. Apparently, the app is no longer supported. I am deleting it from my phone. And I am seriously considering terminating my account with the Instructibles website. I hate using the mobile browser. The app is preferred, but I guess those days are over.

Trevor Cluck

NEEDS WORK! The app works... about half. They really need, (A.) Someone that knows how to code for this kind of environment... memory issues, random lockups, crashes... you folks need help. (B.) UI in the app is horrible! Your web pages are much better. Really seems like this was a last ditch effort to get something out the door and forget about it.

tehemton khairabadi

Can't sign up or login via Facebook- useless The app worked perfectly fine for years but a while ago it started showing some authentication error while logging in from Facebook and doesn't let me sign up either because of some administrative rules error. I've been on the instructables community for years and it's really frustrating to see this..

Justin Weatherford

Cannot Make an Account The app is great, I love the projects shown, but no matter how many times I try the app will not let me make an account. I can't even sign in through Facebook due to Network Connection errors every single time.

Krieger Binew

Great site, adequate app Has issues with sign in, favoriting instructables, and search. Love this site so much and getse charged, just wish this app could be as reliable as the projects posted therein. Still REALLY GREAT FOR BROWSING. Just wish it would save your place when you check out a project

Rob Burroughs

Can no longer login *FIXED* I have had this app for years. Never had much trouble but recently I have not been able to login. I can see my instructables which I have started, but nothing else. I will attempt to uninstall updates and see if that fixes the problem. *UPDATE* uninstall and reinstall the app, then flip through the intro steps to be prompted to login and you will have access to your account again.

Victoria Scott

Can't log in! I try logging in and it won't work, log in with Facebook and it says I am them I go to fave something and nope! Not logged in. Gave up and decided to just try registering all over again and nope! 403 forbidden by administration. If you aren't logged in you can't save anything and it's useless!

Alan Shovlar

Can't sign in now *Update: 24/7/16 nearly 3 months later and still the same. Very poor* Used to sign in fine but now it says reload and check Internet connection. Now I cant see my saved projects! Had rated it 5 stars before that. Fix and ill change back to 5 stars.

Crazy Redneck

Used to love this app I used to love this but now I can't log in it keeps giving me an error message. I tried with FB and Google. It sucks cuz I can't save or comment on anything . Please fix . Been like this for a long time. This about the app not the site. The site is great I have visited this site for years. The only site I have visited more than once lol. (More like thousands )

Brady Chord

Come on.. Still no Google sign in??? Completely useless if I don't have a Facebook account. Unfortunate for those that don't use it. Oh well. Someday I'll be able to use their app if they take a few minutes to make that an option. It's supremely annoying to only be able to use this website from the computer only.

Mayur Singh

Login doesn't work The login part of this app is outright broken. When i type in my details it "logs in" but when i try to see my profile and Instructables, nothing is there at all. Infact my name doesnt even show up, it just says "Log In". I cant track my Instructables stats or see my followers etc, its pretty much just useful to browse other projects. Its absolutely useless for content creators. Video playback doesn't seem to be supported either.

Vyacheslav Orlovsky

Buggy social login feature( FB login doesn't work for me in the app (but works fine on the site from the same device). It tells "Error while loading instructables. Please reload and check your internet connection"


The best The best DIY app. It has infinite amount of well explained and easy to use how to's. I have not experienced any crashes or bugs but state your device model name and system name so autodesk is able to fix it

Jason Kethan

No Support. Stopped being able to log-in... app hasn't been updated in a year and a half... and their "support team" has admitted to me that they aren't supporting the app at this time... no future development is planned. Autodesk has tanked as a dev over the years... I wish they would just cash out and let another company (like Google) take the reigns

James Walker

Login issues I normally log into instructables via my Google account, which I can do fine on the web, but I'm in able to do on the app. This seems odd to me as android is a Google product and 99.999% of users will have a Google account.

Carter Halpin

Can't even experince It won't even let me log in. I reset my password too but it still says unrecognizable. I'd love to give it five stars, just make it work for me and I'll update it haha

Matt Armstrong

Website is awesome. However... The app doesn't play any of the videos users post nor does it supply links to open them with an external app. App is also having problems allowing me to login through Facebook.

Niki Whitman

It refuses to let me use it. Just says I have no internet.. Which I clearly do. I've uninstalled and reinstalled twice. Not sure what's going on. Android ZTE if it matters.

Gabe Riley

I love the app but... I CAN'T FLIPPING SIGN IN. No matter if I try to create a new account, sign in or even sign in with facebook, none work in the slightest and it angers me beyond belief.
