Ravit is a fun new app that enables you to discover inspirational patterns and yarns, update your projects and stash and browse and post to Ravelry forums from anywhere. It's super quick, and it's friendly. Ravelry on mobile has never been easier.
FIND INSPIRATIONAL PATTERNS
If you’re not sure what you’d like to make next, Ravit lets you easily browse patterns, favorite them, download and view pattern PDFs, view project photos and browse a designer’s other patterns and pattern suggestions.
And if you want to narrow your search, choose from dozens of filters including craft, availability, category, attributes, needles, weight and more. You can even combine multiple options with AND, NOT or OR. It's powerful, but easy.
There's so many beautiful patterns on Ravelry, and Ravit helps you find them easily.
TAKE RAVELRY TO YOUR YARN STORE
Find out which yarns you’ll need for a project. Check what yardage you need. Look in your stash to see if you’ve already got a yarn, or one that’s similar. And because Ravit is designed to work nicely on your iPhone or iPad with readable text and buttons you can tap, you won't be squinting as you find all the info you need when you're at your LYS.
+ Search all yarns by keyword, filter by fiber, weight, attributes and many others, and sort by options including 'Most projects' and 'Highest rating'. Quickly view pattern suggestions and projects for a yarn.
+ Access your stash offline. No wireless or cell signal in your yarn store? No problem! Your stash is cached on your device so you can search, sort and view your stash offline.
SNAP, EDIT AND UPLOAD ON THE SPOT
Perhaps you're making a project on the train to work, or relaxed on the couch at home - whenever you are inspired to share your WIPs, Ravit makes it easy to snap photos, enhance with powerful photo filters, and upload to Ravelry, all from the one app.
+ Powerful Photo Editing Tools - enhance, crop, and adjust your photos before your upload and show your work in it's best possible light. You can remove blemishes, improve color balance, sharpen images and access many other pro editing tools all from within the app.
+ Optimized for Ravelry - before images are uploaded, they're resized optimally for Ravelry, so you'll upload smaller photos (up to 10x smaller!) more quickly and using less data.
+ More than just photos - you can update notes for your Projects, Queued Projects and Stash, as well as most of the other info such as yarns, yardage, skeins, colorways, and color for your stash, and progress, link to stash, rating, craft, and tags amongst others for your projects.
IT'S ALL THE LITTLE THINGS...
So why use Ravit? It's all the the little, sometimes hidden touches which make Ravit shine. Here's a few of them.
+ It's quick - if you tap on something, you go right there.
+ Infinite scroll - smooth, continuous scrolling as you browse to find inspiration.
+ Offline - whether you're commuting underground, or you're off-grid, Ravit lets you access your Projects and Stash offline.
+ Clean, uncluttered interface - we want your work and the beauty of Ravelry.com to shine.
+ Use up to 50%* less data in Ravit compared with your web browser.
+ Squint less - The text in Ravit isn't made super small, and we're fully Dynamic Type compatible, so if you change the font size on your device, it'll change in Ravit.
* Based on tests of browsing patterns, projects, stash and yarns on Ravit and Safari on the same device - YYMV! (Your Yardage May Vary)

Ratings and Reviews
It's really come a long
When ravit first came out, I was initially pretty disappointed (mostly because it was 4 bucks which is a price I'd only pay for something truly special and being just a pattern aggregator using Ravelry's api, it wasn't) but now that they're integrating your library and projects, it's become a lot more useful. It's clean, easy to use, and gorgeous.
I'd love to see a native chart reader of sorts but being able to view pdfs now is dead useful. It needs a few more touches. You can't see comments or posts on a patterns page which is essentially the review section of the pattern. I'd also love to see a preview option for patterns so I can get an idea of how it's written before I pull the trigger on buying.
I'm not sure it's worth $4 yet but it's heading in that direction to be sure.

Thanks for your review - we're glad that you're finding Ravit so useful! We're thinking about a pattern reader in future and we'll consider adding a way to view pattern comments too. Thanks for the feedback, and please feel free to share any further thoughts at http://www.ravelry.com/groups/ravit.
Finally a functional app for Ravelry!
This app WORKS. it’s concise and allows u to browse patterns, yarns, and most of your Ravelry ‘notebook’. The pics are beautiful and quick to load, scrolling thru patterns and favorites is even easier with this than it is on Ravelry. I’ve always hated that Ravelry doesn’t have a mobile app that matches the functionality of its desktop site, but now it does. Casey and Beth have created such a fabulous platform for us all, and now finally this app allows us to have that same level of functionality on our mobile devices. It’s absolutely worth the price, because it’s being updated with new functions pretty regularly based on user requests, and having the ability to use this on my phone makes escaping away to ‘knitland” so much easier. I’ve tried other apps over the years that claimed to make Ravelry easier to navigate via mobile devices, but none actually did. This one is a home run.

Thanks for your detailed review, that's so nice to hear!! Out of interest, what would it take to make Ravit 5/5 for you? Please let us know at email@example.com. Thanks :-)
Must have for Ravelry users!
This is, BY FAR, the most comprehensive Ravelry-integrated app available to date. Not only can I access my library of patterns, start and update projects, sort and access my queue, and purchase patterns but it’s beautifully designed and user friendly. Currently in beta is forums integration and it’s working! I will never have to use the mobile-enabled Rav website with this addition and cannot rave enough about this app and its developer. They have really hit it out of the park!
