This is a great app. I use it for inspiration when working on projects. It's also great for if you get stumped on a project and need ideas for solutions. I've searched the app for crochet ideas, stitching, scrapbooking and jewelry making to name a few and I always find something. It's also pretty great for ideas for gifts you can make for others. They usually have seasonal/holiday posts too like Christmas themed crafts as an example. If you enjoy crafts this is a great app for inspiration and help.

Won’t work on my phone anymore 😩

I’m so sad. I have many projects saved on this app that I can no longer get to because of the iPhone 11 update. I guess Pinterest has taken over the market. I really preferred this app!!

Update: I can still access my saved projects online! Woohoo!

Use the website instead

I love craftgawker, DEPLORE the app. I look almost every day and heart things that I'd like to try. So many good ideas! I like that the app lets you look at individual posts one by one and swipe through, but the limit of how many you can see without paying is INSANE. I've take to just using the website I bookmarked on my home screen. I also got a notification telling me that the developer needs to update the app, and that it might slow my phone down. No thanks!
