Disappointed with “Search”

Okay, so I’ve been using Ravit instead of Ravelry’s mobile site, and it’s really come a long way in the last few months, but it’s still kind of disappointing. So, I was thrilled when I discovered Alpaca, because it seemed like it might have everything that Ravit lacked. The one thing that’s really irritating is that the “saved search parameters” don’t actually stay saved. They’re reset every time I reopen the app. I don’t want to have to re-enter my search parameters every time I want to look for something in the app. Hopefully this will be addressed in the next update, because I really like Alpaca, and I think it’s got a ton of potential.
I also love that you can see and leave comments on other user’s projects from the app, but I wish that I could “favorite” projects from the app as well. You guys would have Ravit best hands down if those features were available.

Great way to Browse Ravelry on Mobile

I love how this app makes Ravelry more easy to use on my phone. It’s clean, fresh, and fast. It’s easy to use and has most of the functionality of the full site. I’m quite impressed!

I actually downloaded the app primarily to work on my projects. I often take wip photos on my phone and uploading them to Ravelry was a time consuming process. This app is really helpful for editing and uploading pictures to existing projects. I’d really like the ability to add new projects directly from the app and to filter my projects within the notebook section (my oldest finished ones are showing first), but I can workaround that with my laptop.

Overall, I’m quite happy with this app. Thank you for making it available!


Brilliant Ravelry On the Go

This is THE BEST Ravelry app. There are a lot of wonderful things about Ravelry, but their mobile site is not one of them. I was thrilled when Alpaca was released. It is super intuitive, very user friendly, and has a great interface, all things Ravelry severely lacks. I open and use Alpaca at least 5-10 times a day. It has changed my mobile Ravelry game considerably and I now only log on to the actual Ravelry website maybe twice a month. This is a must download for knitters.
