Love this app!

This app is great for keeping track of your WIPs and your yarn stash. I love that it has multiple features that come in handy for your projects, tools, and yarn.

I would like to note that with the dark mode feature it is very difficult to see text. I’m personally an all dark mode all the time kind of person but I have to keep this app in light mode so that I can read what’s written on the page :/ not a huge problem though and it doesn’t overshadow all the excellent features this app has.

I noticed that there are several different options within the “other” tab when selecting the type of project you’re working on—I would love to see an option for tatting in there as well! My main WIP right now is a needle-tatted doily and I’ve filled out the info for it as best as I can, but I’d love to be able to accurately categorize the project itself as well as the thread and needle that I’m using :)

Best App for Crochet Projects - especially for someone who likes to bounce around multiple projects

Personally I love apps. I love researching apps for a purpose and trying them all.

I had been using "My Row Counter" for a while and it's just never improved and reminds me of using clipart (totally understand small developer issues).

YarnBuddy is just amazing. It's delightful visually and in function. Take a moment to learn to know all the little areas of the app.

I also appreciate the Mac App AND iPhone. I don't like being limited to a device. I love that I can be more efficient especially as a new user, to load my yarn collection details and patterns into the app faster than doing it from my phone.

I love the multiple row counters on a project. (wish I could name my counters, but there is color coding).

* Wish I could add a custom note when uploading a Project.

* Wish I could add a custom hook size if missing on the list (didn't have a 4.25 for crochet option)

* I do wish the filter would STICK to what I set it to (all projects - if you can't find a project you uploaded it will only show based on what you selected: Current, Future, etc.).

* I also cannot figure out if the one time fee or monthly covers both IOS & Mac versions.

Love this app!!!

This app has just what I need to keep track of my stash which is growing all the time. I have soooooo much!! It’s out of hand. So far I have used the project saver features of this app. I love it!! From one Nebraska girl to another whos grandma taught her to crochet Well Done!!!! Grandma is proud of you!!

I can’t wait to learn all the other features of this app. I loved the free version but the subscription is very inexpensive and well worth it so future buyers if your on the fence you won’t regret it. Great for WIPs. I love the barcode scanner. That is helpful. So many things to talk about. I’m going to write out a better review and come back but I was just really excited to shout it’s praises. It’s not just for crocheting. It’s also for knitting and cross stitch and other fiber crafts I believe. Better review to come lol. Exciting!!
