What's New in Version 1.30.1
A few new features for you pattern viewing pleasure...
- iPad is now officially supported. We saw that many of you were using the app on iPads and thought we'd give you a bigger and better layout.
- Added an inbox so you can stay up to date with Craftsy specials, offers, and more.
- Fixed a few crashes because no one likes those.
Can't just browse by craft
Browsing patterns can be annoying when you are trying to specifically find ones that are either knit or crochet - you can only narrow it down if doing a specific search. The vast majority of my time looking at patterns, I'm not looking for anything in particular, so I end up browsing and trying to visually filter out what *looks* like a knit project. Also no way I've seen to change the display order, so you may end up looking at projects you've already seen quite a lot.
It's a nice and basic effort to make the craftsy patterns easy to browse on mobile, but it lacks some features that would be necessary to use it exclusively. I almost always end up opening the site in a mobile browser, which defeats the purpose of even having the app.
I have enjoyed Craftsy since it's creation. I now use my iPad almost exclusively. I had to download this app because the site now crashes in Safari. I find the app of very little help. Unless I have my iPad set wrong, it only works in one orientation. It is either an old app or written for iPhone because you have to click on 2x to go full size. Searching is terrible. No division I can find between knit and crochet. The site searches are limited but at least offer that filter.
I won't support Ravelry but Craftsy is making it hard to support them with hard to use features.
It's great but...
Every time I find a pattern I like that is pretty deep in my scrolling the app crashes. I've tried using it twice since I've gotten it and both times it has crashed. Also I don't enjoy that you can't pick the type of crafting you're doing. I crochet, I can't knit. It's really disappointing to find a knitting patten you love when you can only crochet. Aside from that the app is pretty fantastic. I'd just like to see these things fixed.
