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 :

What's New in Version 3.2.8
Major change to support iCloud drive. iCloud upgraded from pre-IOS 8.
New version- buggy
Are you kidding???
I just downloaded version 3.2.8 with its "major change to support iCloud Drive".
The first thing it tells me to do is to resave all my drafts stored in iCloud so that I don't lose them. Save them one by one. All 97. Each time I open a draft and try to resave it, it either doesn't resave or the app crashes.
This update needs some serious tweaking!
(The App Store wouldn't let me post without giving it at least one star. Believe me, it needs negative stars at this point.)
I don't know what the developers were thinking in releasing this update! I can't change anything in iCloud (every draft name begins with "Read-Only"). I've always saved to iCloud, and I've never had a problem. And "Edit" is grayed out, so I can't create new folders or collections or anything, or save to iCloud. Please fix!!
Long needed upgrade to iCloud support
Full disclosure: I am an iOS developer.
With the update to iOS 8, Apple changed how iCloud documents are stored. They are now stored in "iCloud Drive" which is a document storage system that will work seamlessly across different platforms including macOS. Unfortunately, Apple did *not* include automatic migration of older files from the "iCloud Documents" system to the "iCloud Drive" system. Consequently, in order to migrate users to the new system, each developer must decide on how to do this.
With iWeaveit, the way the developers chose to approach the issue was to mark the old files as read-only. When you save changes to those files, it will *only* save to "WeaveIt Drive" (or locally).
Additionally, the devs chose to leave your old files where they were and not move any to the new system without you actively choosing to do so. Likely, this was for performance reasons since if you have a lot of patterns then trying to automatically move them would make the app appear to freeze as it tries to move a lot of data. Unfortunately, this is confusing (and I've docked the app one star for this reason) though I am not sure what a better design would be. Personally, I know how challenging it can be for a small company to balance great performance and an intuitive UI, so I'm not complaining too much. ;)
I'm delighted to see that the team is taking a proactive approach to managing this change and I really like how nicely it integrates with the Mac version of the app. (Using iCloud Drive allows me to pull up designs I've been working on while at home and play with them on the bus.)
Message to the developers:
Please consider adding in a mechanism for users to batch migrate their files and remove them from the older read-only file system. Apple has a history of deciding (somewhat arbitrarily in my opinion) that it will stop supporting older technology and then giving you two months over the summer (when my kids are out of school and I would rather be camping) to support the new version of iOS before all your users upgrade their phones.
