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.

Nice for editing but poor file system

I am new to weaving but I think I understand this app fairly well. I do like that you can modify so many aspects of the files.
Unfortunately you cannot specify where the files are saved so if you have downloaded one from the internet and open, then save it seems to always go into the “on my iPad” folder. So these are not in the iCloud Drive! Do I have to move everything so I can see it on another device?
Also some of the files (in the Samples folder) do not show the threading unless you click on it to edit, but still does not show or print it.
It would also be nice if you could set defaults, such as treadling or lift, number of shafts, etc. so you don’t have to do this for each wif.
If these features are there please let me know how to find them!

iWeaveIt uses Apple's file system. You can move and select and do everything with the Apple Files App. Create you file initially where you want it, for example in iCloud Drive and then it will save there and be available for all your devices even on Microsoft Windows iCloud Drive.

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.

Developer Response ,

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.
