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.

In-app purchases available for :
√ Yarn and Project Management
√ Tracking your threading or treadling while you weave

Pretty good

The cheapest wif editor I have found (other than on line) and pretty good. The warp, tie up, and treadling areas expand to allow editing with fingers (good) but when they do, they hide part of the draw down (depending on zoom) which is very frustrating when you are trying to shift a pattern to get the desired edges. No repeat capability that I could find, which is unsurprising for the price, but is a feature I would gladly pay extra for. A recent update dramatically improved the iCloud file handling. It can now open and modify files anywhere in iCloud. Creating new files is slightly broken: you can save as untitled, but other names cause a file error. For now, use the Files app to rename new files.

Developer Response ,

You can use the app to locate the file to anywhere you want. When you create new, move to the folder you want it in. Apple requires that the wif document be created on New. The iWeaveIt file manage is a subset of Apple Files Manager, so you can select and do a move from iWeaveIt.

Beginner weaver and I love this app

I have found using this for weaving has been so helpful! I love seeing how colors interact and getting a visual for what I’m creating. I also love the tracking of threading and treadling, it keeps me on track and accurate.

The one thing I have noticed that could be improved is the tracking for the treadling: I often have 2 or more projects going at the same time and when I go to track the treadling for the one saved file, it notices that I am tracking on another file, and if I click “yes” to start on the file I’m currently on, it then erases where I am at on the previous file I was tracking. It would be VERY helpful if it would save where I am at in the treadling and threading for each individual file that I am using concurrently.

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!

Developer Response ,

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.
