From Your Red Heart Family
Tried really hard to like it!
UPDATED: June 2013 seriously, redheart? No search or save option YET? You know that on LBY's app you can 'favorite' patterns, save them directly to your phone or iPad INSIDE the app, and even buy supplies right from the app, right? It's like you're the crotchety grandpa of the yarn makers. "Bah! This Internet whoozit! It's not going to last. Books and fliers! That's what we need! Print more fliers!" Come on, join the twenty-first century. Most of us don't bite.
So, the app is pretty user-friendly and easy to navigate through what there is of it. I LOVE that I can save patterns as PDF files in my kindle app. I understand you can also save them in your nook or iBooks apps. They're easy to print. However.....I'd like to be able to save them in Knitminder, so I can keep track of the pattern as I work it. Also, I was looking for a shell afghan crochet pattern. I had to scroll through every single page to find what I wanted. I wish there were a search option! Can this please be the next update? If it were, I'd probably give this app five stars. I haven't had any crashing or viewing problems.
A little disappointed & frustrated
Ok, now I'm really getting frustrated with this app. If u can see my previous review, I was trying to save my patterns to my home screen but it didn't work as well as I liked. But then I found I could open the patterns up in the Kindle App on my phone. But here's my new issue... I recently updated the Kindle App & now all my patterns are gone!!! Ugh!!! Not sure how else I can save these patterns on my phone & not lose them!!! I have yarn for projects that were outlined in these patterns! This will be the third time that I'll have to go through Red Heart's app & browse for these patterns!!! Red Heart, please fix these issues within this app!!! 1.) Include a "search feature" so the user doesn't have to go through every single project. 2.) Create a "Favorites" button so you can save the selected pattern & it be readily accessible (while in the store purchasing yarn & retrieving the pattern when going to complete the project).
Nice but needs improvement.
This is a good App but I feel it lacks some things.
- I would like to be able to look up patterns by their recommended yarn type.
- Furthermore it would be nice to be able to refine my search even further. Example: crochet-who's it for?-kids.
I would like to be able to take that a step further an be able to pick afghan, accessory, clothing, toy etc rather than have to wade through every pattern.
The website is much more in depth and easier to search through than than the App. For this reason I rarely use the App.
