Amazing app

Absolutely love this app, by far the best knitting app I have found, working amazingly in the free version with the option to upgrade pro which I’m definitely considering. There seems to be a slight glitch in the app however. I struggle to tap on the yarns in my yarn stash which are on the left closest to the edge of the screen. I have no issues in that area on any other app so why am I struggling with this one?? Hopefully bug will be fixed. But generally 10/10 love it. Also unsure if I can sync my projects between multiple devices which again would be great if I could

Just what I needed

This is such a great project tracking app, and I love how fully featured and flexible it is. It’s also the first app where I’ve actually understood how to use linked counters! The stash tracking is great too, and it’s incredibly useful to be able to add patterns into projects. My dream feature would be to be able to keep/show my pattern pdf library in the app too, but even without that, it’s well worth the price to get the Pro version. Spot on for what I need a yarn craft app to do!

Fantastic APP

Wow. What a fantastic app. Recommended to me by my daughter. It’s so good we each bought the lifetime membership.
My stash is now ordered & catalogued in 24 boxes in an Ikea Kallax unit, with my projects kept separately, in boxes, in a bookcase.
31 projects now listed in my app, with all the info I need including the pattern information.

This is honestly the best yarn/craft app I have ever seen. So much information in one place. It’s going to make things so much easier for me and I’ll enjoy my crafting even more. I’m 56 & have been knitting/crocheting since I was 8. It’s my happy place & this app just makes it even better!

Definitely recommend x
