What's the point? You can't save your work without buying it,it says its got a max of 40 rows but it doesn't show it(I'm sure you have to buy it for that too.) Why not just make this a paid app,so that people don't think they get any useful features for free when they in fact do not? Then people wouldn't be so disappointed.
UPDATED Review While I still feel it's a bad choice to make upgrade options as "In app purchase" which is NOT refundable, and therefore there is no free way to "try before you buy", I bought anyway just to really try it...and it's worth the $4. I feel it does enough for that price, so I'm giving it 5 stars now. It's easy to use while designing and test swatching stitch patterns. Some symbols are a bit odd for this American. Text output is also really good, just a bit cluttered with redundant [ ]'s. Works smoothly.
Good interface, not enough symbols I mistakenly assumed that the full version of this app would include a larger symbol library. It's pretty much useless to me as is. Would definitely be worth the money if it included a comprehensive symbol library.
Exactly what I wanted, but... ... when you can't even save your work without paying, that makes it useless. And $4 to save? Outrageous. Good thing I tried to save before I did more than 5 minutes of work on this or you would have gotten a piece of my mind. A suggestion: be able to save your work, but use ads to pay for the free version. Limit other features besides the save function (eg. number of colors, grid size, etc). It's not worth it for me to keep as it is. :(
Good chart maker. It really needs the functionality to create your own symbols and incorporateadditional existing ones. For example I trasfered an existing chart I am currenrly using from a knitting magazine. The chart requires in some rows to make one stitch (M) and other rows make one purlwise (MP), all while working with circular needles. The is only an M and could not add a P or the dot in the same box to reflect what's needed. So it's good for straight simple charts but you cannot make any changes to existing symbols.
Limited but useful. So, you can only have 40 rows, that's enough for what I do, which is convert printed instructions into a chart. Has plenty of stitch symbols for my purposes. I want something I can carry around on my tablet or phone. If you need more, perhaps you need to purchase more expensive and extensive software.
