iWeaveiIt is drawdown app for designing hand weaving patterns. It was developed by the same people who did WeaveIt for the PC Windows environment. The single purchase of iWeaveIt will download to both your iPhone and your iPad.
The iWeaveIt app supports Apple’s human interface guidelines with many of Apple's features. It uses gestures and touches for draft manipulation. This makes the program easy to use on the iPhone, iPod and iPad. The many animations give the program pizazz. The result is a fun and enticing program to create and view weaving drafts.
√ Zoom with gestures, double click and two finger click similar to Apple’s Map program.
√ Create and edit threading, treadling, and tieup for your drafts with multiple edit functions ( cut, copy, paste, flip, wrap, and change colors).
√ Supports lift plans.
√ Multiple levels of undo are available for editing.
√ Create custom color palettes.
√ Reads and writes WIF files.
√ Export your pattern drafts as WIF files via email, iCloud or save to local storage and transfer with iTunes.
√ Import WIF files into iWeaveIt from email or internet (www.handweaving.net) with only one click. WIF files are recognized for iWeaveIt and load immediately.
√ Sync files using iCloud between all your devices (iPhone, iPod, iPad and Macintosh, Windows PC).
√ Print the draft to your air printer. You do not have to email or transfer your file to another computer.
√ View one repeat of the design or multiple repeats to get a feel for how the whole cloth will look.
Editing allows up to 8 shafts on iPhone and 24 shafts on iPad.

Print out the user manual for reference
I found that printing out the user manual was quite helpful ... I know, I know we should all be getting away from printing so much paper, etc. Each page is put into a plastic sleeve and then placed in a 1” binder. I then earmarked particular pages for quick referencing. This is a wonderful tool!

It is also helpful to save the guide in your Books app on the iPhone/iPad and then it is always handy. Thank you for your review.
So far so good
I am new to weaving and thus still learning. It would be nice to have the app tally up the number of heddles so that I can check to be sure that I have threaded it correctly. Right now I print out the sheets and tally up the 4 heddles manually.
Also it would be nice during the editing mode to scroll with accidentally moving or adding a threading position, this is also true with the treading.
Otherwise it has been great to keep tract of the lifting of the shafts while weaving. I am sure I will get better at weaving with this App.

The heddle count is available in the yarn/project calculator in-app which is additional purchase. See more features on the menu. To see heddle count the width of the fabric on the loom must be entered. Thank you for your support.
I bought this program app about a year ago and it is great. When I have any questions I email them from the app. And I always gets reply the same day or first thing the next day. If I had the extra money I would by this program for my Mac. I have also bought all the extras. Things I did on graft paper I no longer have to do. I can go back and look at things I have woven before. Great Application every Weaver should own this. 10 stars I give it. Ted wiz
