Just what I needed


I love this app! I've been using it all year on a large complicated knitting blanket project. The multiple counters that sync together make tracking rows in two or more patterns at once a breeze! I just figured out how to turn on the iCloud sync so I can use the app from both my iPad and iPhone. The only minor complaint I have is that you can't collapse the keyboard in the notes areas. It makes reading long passages difficult. Both otherwise this is the perfect knitting/crocheting companion! Thanks for the great features!

The only thing…

I love this app, it allows me to easily track where I am in my pattern, I can also make notes on individual counters in a pattern so that I don't have to carry around paper and the like. However, say I'm knitting a sock and I have stitch counters broken down into sections (ankle, heel, instep, foot, toe), I want to organize the sections so that the one I'm on is at the top the next section is below that and the one I've just finished is at the bottom, and I can organize them like that except that when I try to move the one I've just done to the bottom a random counter floats to the top.

Still not happy after the emergency update


After I deleted the app (and all of my data from current and past projects), it started working but the camera would crash the app when I opened it to take a picture for my project. Now after adding a couple more counters for the next section of my pattern, it won’t let me order them how I want to order them. I will edit the order and then I can’t increment so I exit that list of counters and go back in to find them back with the order I don’t want. I’m tired of this. I’m going to another app where I can find proper app support (the link from the App Store does not work) and that hopefully I won’t waste so much time on this type of garbage. I *used* to like this app.
