Knitting Iphone apps - My Review


Couple of days ago I Tweeted about knitting apps, asking what other IPhone users are currently using, most were using the the ones i already have, and a few of you asked to be kept in the loop :D

 

So I thought I would share the knitting apps that I currently have and use on my phone, which are pictured above!

Ok so first up I have Knit Minder which I believe I paid £2.99 for, in this app you have the option of not only storing your projects, but  patterns as well because it has a import and export function although in my opinion it looks rather complicated todo! You can also stash your yarn, and needles/hooks.  The row counters are good, as you can edit and add as many as you need.

 
 Do I use this app??- No I don’t its far too fussy for my liking, I would never use the pattern or stash functions, though I can see other knitters finding those options useful, like when shopping for yarn, or matching patterns to yarn, but I am just not that practical lol and although the counters are quite good, for me they are not worth £2.99 lol

Next up is Yarma I paid £0.69p for this app, Yarma is a Raverly camera app, meaning you can take pictures of your yarn and projects, then upload straight to your stash or projects stored in Raverly. It’s really easy to use, it links to your Raverly account at a push of a button, and also has some awesome filters!
 
Do I use this app?? – Yes I love this app, and feel it’s well worth the 0.69p, for me it makes uploading pictures to Raverly much easier, I reckon I will now be much better at keeping my stash up to date.

JKnit pro,at £6.99 is the priciest of all the apps I have, for the money you get web portal, PDF Library, project storage with row counter. The app has been designed to help transform any written pattern instructions into easy to follow, step by step reminders of what to do next as you knit each row! The web portal lets you setup projects in J knit format on any computer and transfer them over to your app.
 
Do I use this app?? – I think this app has great potential, and I love the concept that it’s been designed around, after all it’s no secret that I find patterns challenging to follow, so I brought this app hoping it will help, I have yet to use it as I only downloaded it yesterday, my only negative so far is the row counter, it only has one with no options to add more, and I need at least two, to help me know where I am in a pattern. 

Knit Evenly is an app to calculate increases or decreases when designing a pattern, its nice and simple to use and cost £1.49
 
Do I use this app?? – yes, as some of you know I am designing a bag, and this app has been great help, taking the math headache out of the equation, epically with its guide option *see photo*

Knit was recommended to me by Amber on twitter, this is the only free app I have, it has a section to store projects and stitch counter.
 
Do I use this app?? – No, I still can’t work out how to use the row counter; it’s too basic in terms of editing control, giving you no options to add counters, but it is cute though!

Knitting cost £1.99, you have the option of creating singe or multi- piece projects, and the knitting counter is clear and easy to use.
 
Do I use this app? – No because it only has one counter in single mode, and I need two to help me keep track of where I am in a pattern, which is a shame because I do love the layout of this app!

Knit counter cost me £1.99 (I think??) it’s very easy to use, you just add your project, and then you can add as many counters as you need, naming them whatever you want. You also have the option of adding a picture of your project should you wish.
 
Do I use this app?? – Yes I love this app, as it’s easy and simple to use! When knitting I have to have a row counter and rows worked, because one of the major hurdles I face with my Dyscalculia is my number memory , if I use just one counter, then I often find myself forgetting if I have just worked that row or if it’s the row I am about to do?

Knitting help is a video reference app which cost £4.99, it show’s both English and Continental ways of knitting, it also has written help on subjects like yarn and needles, the app supports the online website knitting help.com.
 
Do I use this app?? – This app is my bible, and one of the best £4.99 I have ever spent!, if your just starting out in the world of knitting, this app will become your best friend!! It covers everything!!

Good Reader is a PDF reader for the iPhone, which can link up to Raverly and store all your patterns from there *I am sure it has a lot of other uses, but this is what I brought it for lol!* this app will set you back £2.99
 
Do I use this app?? – I love Good reader and have it on my ipad as well; once the patterns are downloaded you don’t need Wi-Fi to access them! This is great for when knitting on the go! Or when your aboard, I love the fact that it links to ICloud, and being able to sync it with my Raverly pattern downloads is the best feature ever!!

So there you have it :D if anyone knows of any other knitting or crochet apps that are worth downloading I would love to hear from you!

**All pictures are screen shots taken with my iphone, all the opinions expressed, are of my own, what doesn’t work for me, May very well be suitable for you!**
