LOVE THIS APP! My husband had me try this app and I really love using this to follow the patterns I am working on. With it's many perks and features it's really really nice. I am loving the highlight on the row I left off on and can pick right back up knowing EXACTLY where I was at. Really is great app.
I use this app all the time on my phone (Galaxy note 5) and my older iPad and enjoy it. I like that I can download my patterns and have them off line without having to print everything. I like that it's in color on my screen and I can clearly see the picture tutorials on tougher patterns. What I don't like is that I can't get this app on my galaxy tab 2 because it's incompatible. My kids use the iPad for much of their learning, as their apps they use for school (we homeschool) aren't found in the play store. So I have to fight for time to use the iPad and knit companion. I haven't gotten a chance to use the chart tool yet or to see if it would save my progress across several devices. I just wish I could get it on my galaxy tab so I could use it more often.
I really like this app. Using it has made my first lace knitting project go much faster and I was pleasantly surprised at how many features it has. 1. It took me a while to confirm that Android doesn't have Magic marker summary counts. It was confusing because the Android video for markers shows a chart that has been colored as though it was processed by Magic markers. It would be helpful if a caption or note made that clearer to Android users. I am anxiously awaiting this count summary feature on the Android side. 2. I'd like to see a visual aid that tells you what direction you are moving when you are zoomed in on a long row.
It's okay for now It does not have the capabilities of the iOs so forget about shopping for the ready set up projects for now. I bought the subscription to help support the development because I still have access to my IOS version for everything I really want. If I were just getting this app without knowledge of its potential I would feel I got overcharged for the subscription at this point. Hopefully in the near future it will be more complete. At that point, it will totally seem worth it.
I've been using the IOS version on my ipad for ever, and love the product. So much so I was thrilled to download and install the Android App. Bought the subscription for a year, too, to support a great product. Except, I cannot use ANY of the projects (hundreds of them) in my Dropbox for the IOS platform. I am at a complete loss to understand the logic behind developing such a completely different app that they cannot share projects. Really bad call! Pity they didn't port the IOS app to Android (as zillions of other app developers have done) so projects would not be tied to a platform. Guess they thought no one would ever switch ios to Android or vice versa. A refund of my subscription cost would be a nice gesture, although that was my fault for assuming that cross platform compatibility would have been a no-brainer.
Easy to use; wish the pattern didn't reload each time after minimising it. Otherwise a very helpful app. Not good for very large charts.
