Love this app!

This has become my go to knitting app! I now have it on my iPad and iPhone for quick access wherever I go. I’m giving this 4 stars because I would love to see a few extra features - a pen to jot notes on the pdf (the marker is too thick and the notepad is great for future reference but not good for tweaking a pattern and quick glance), resizable counter so I can zoom in on the patter but shrink the counter so I can see the whole pattern and not have to move it around the page as I progress. I haven’t had trouble with bugs except once when my iPad ran out of battery and it shut down with the app open, couldn’t get the pattern to load, had to sign out and sign back in and then it worked like a charm! Otherwise this is a 5 star app!

This app is really useless. All you can do is store your patterns from LoveKnitting and Ravelry on it, which I can do on my phone without having to download an entire app for. It shows patterns but you can’t search patterns, and who wants to scroll through a bunch of stuff they never plan on doing just to find something they might like?
What this app needs:
1) a search feature for patterns.
2) make it where you can buy tools and yarns or whatever else I need.
I downloaded this thinking I would be able to buy the yarn and needles I needed but no. I had to go to the website on my phone, which isn’t very mobile friendly, and buy the things I need there. Why even make this app? Very disappointed in it. I love the website but this app is nothing like that. It’s just meant for storage and nothing else. You can download the patterns onto your phone for less storage than this app takes up so it makes the app completely useless. Come on LoveKnitting, y’all can do better than this.

Developer Response ,

Hello, thank you for your feedback. I understand how a search would be totally useful for your patterns and how an app where you can buy products would make the shopping experience on your phone a lot smoother. These are very valuable comments and is definitely something that we should consider adding to the app! As for the reader functionality that the app essentially has, there are some useful tools that make it easier to work with the patterns that many users find useful, such as a row counter, chart marker, adding notes and highlighting the parts of the pattern that you need. Thank you for your feedback once again, and please do let us know if there are any questions or comments at

Like this app, but I need to love it...

I like this app a lot for what it is. The pattern reader is great because it allows me to mark my place, make notes, highlight, etc. I also like that it imports all of my ravelry patterns. I also like being able to browse the free patterns and immediately start working on one with a click of the button.
That being said, I need more! I would love for it to have easier access to LoveKnitting’s paid patterns, etc. so I could use the app for shopping, instead of just getting the free patterns. It would also to have a social aspect, like being able to see people’s projects better, etc.
