Circles lets you collect and create with friends, family, cousins, cousins of cousins twice removed or even clients and colleagues.
You can create as many Circles as you like, and invite as many people as you want – who can all add projects and templates or edit each others.
What is a "Circle"?
Another way to think of Circles is as "groups" or "folders" you can create with multiple users. They are spaces where you can see other people's designs, edit them or add your own. (Over Pro subscribers can edit other people's designs, while free users can only view them)
You can also have Circles where you're the only user, it won't be lonely with all the beautiful content you'll add. Promise! This is a great place to sort and store templates for example. Create a Circle called "birthdays" and add all birthday-related templates here for future use, nice and easy!
All the ways you can use Circles
- For collaboration. If you would like to work on a design with a friend or family member, for example, you can invite them to the Circle and anything either one of you adds to it, will show up on the other person's device as well. Free users will be able to see other people's projects, and Over Pro subscribers will be able to open and edit their projects as well.
- Sharing between devices. If you'd like to start a project on your iPhone, for example, and finish it on your iPad, adding it to your Circles (and being logged in to the same account on both devices) will mean you can do this.
- Saving your projects to your account, and not just your device. As we currently don't save any of your projects to iCloud Sync, anything created in Over is saved only to your device. So, if you were to lose your phone, or get a new one, your projects would not transfer across, or be saved anywhere. Saving your projects to your Circles account means that they're nice and safe. You can simply log in to your account in Over on any other device, and anything that had been saved to a Circle, will be there for you to use.
- Organization. We even tend to use Circles as "folders" to order our projects. This could be useful if you'd like to save all of your birthday designs, for example, in one Circle, and inspirational quotes in another.
Previously collected templates
Don’t panic if you don’t see your collections, we’ve moved all those goodies to your very own Circle (with your first name).
We hope you enjoy creating in Circles - it’s like a party in Over and all your friends are invited!
