Abysmal help function spoils everything.
I hate this app. And the thing I hate about it most is that it could be so great. Imagine being able to take your patterns with you everywhere without having to mess with any paper, tracking your way through complex charts as you annotate your progress right on the chart, color coding your patterns, embedding annotations. It should be great. but it is almost impossible to find an answer to a question. The process of setting up a project is complex and the only help is a bare-bones user manual that I have never found useful and un-indexed tutorial videos that start with a great deal of useless information, or information that you don't need to hear 15 times as you try to find a place where your question might be answered. Most of the time, it isn't. I have spent more time trying to set up projects that I have knitting, especially when it comes to charts. Also I find the app unstable. One of the tutorial videos, which I think might have one of my answers on it, only plays for two seconds and then shuts off. I have been working with this Knit Companion software for a year. I keep hoping it will eventually come through, but I just get more and more frustrated. If a competitor comes along I will be gone in a minute.
KC has revolutionized knitting tools. There is so much to it and more always coming along. I use it along with the sister app PatternGenius. It has so many options to use while at the same time equally as helpful without using them all. It can be learned as you go. The KnitCompanion website is full of help as well as the Ravelry group.
There is a minimum yearly subscription that covers the basic costs of developing, maintaining the app and keeping up with system changes. Of course the ads disappear with the subscription but will return when it runs out. The actual work is generously volunteered. I think it is the most reasonable and most valuable of all my subscriptions.
Reliable and well supported
I've used this app for years now. It keeps getting better. It can be used pretty simply or its' powerful tools can be used to tame very complicated patterns. In app help, video tutorials, online reference materials are all very clear to help learn how to individualize screens to show just what makes the most sense the way I knit. This app has made knitting much less frustrating and I hope that I never have to go back to papers, highlighters, magnets or any of the many old things I used to to try to keep track of a pattern!
