Yarma - Your Ravelry Camera App
By untested ltd.
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Yarma is a camera app with a direct interface to Ravelry - the largest on-line knitting & crochet community. Take pictures, apply filters to finesse your image and upload direct to a Ravelry project or your Ravelry stash. Additionally, pictures can be saved to your film roll or uploaded to Flickr. Yarma makes it simple to take great photos of your latest work in progress or finished project and share with your Ravelry friends.
Swipe through a library of preset filters and apply 'tilt shift' effects to enhance your project photos. Select your Ravelry project or yarn stash and upload with a couple of taps.
What's New in Version 1.2
• Fixed the issues with large project and stash collection
• Fixed the display of stashes to include the colorway
• You can now search your stash and projects lists
• Added copyright info to photos (you can edit it on the settings screen)
• Added the option to upload your photos to the top or bottom of your list of photos
The main point of this app is for adding pictures to Ravelry projects or your stash. If you're looking for an app that does anything other than that, this isn't it. It does pictures and does them pretty well. There's a nice variety of presets that are subtle and do a great job enhancing photos rather than applying a bunch if crazy effects. It's hard enough trying to get accurate yarn colors in a picture that crazy presets are really unwanted. These are nice. The only downside is that all of the pictures are square. Not a big deal but it would have been nice to know that square was my only option before buying the app. Still not bad for the price and what it does.
Quick upload directly to my projects on Ravelry. A very nice feature. However, you cannot rotate or edit photos in any way. Some projects look silly as I am 'laying down'. Also, it might be helpful if my projects could be sorted in alphabetical order. Currently they are in the order that I have them in my projects.
The best feature is the speed that items can be listed directly on Ravelry. Many of the fixes have to do with large stash. I don't use Ravelry as a marketplace, so most of my stash is not listed.
Love this app!
I really do like this app and use it a lot. My only wish is that the photos could be a tad smaller - i.e., when I upload a photo to my project then share it on Rav in a comment, it's really, really big. A re-size option would be terrific. But that may be a Rav issue, not Yarma. All in all, I love it.
Still loving this app. Use it nearly daily. Still wish the photos would upload to Ravelry in a smaller format though!
