Good for... I don't know. It's fine. I'm just a little ticked because I just realized you can't add projects from your phone. It seems like a logical step since I can access patterns, take pictures of my projects and then upload them from my phone.
Can't believe I paid for this... The app lags horribly, search is extremely limited. Apps are supposed to be easier than accessing sites via Internet on mobile. On my Galaxy Note 2 it is still quicker and easier to pull up the actual site and use advanced search. They should have made a higher functioning app before slapping a price tag on it : (
Love the app I've found this app to be used up. It does everything I need ravelry to so on the go. It has a great UI and Polly has always answered any silly question I've sent her via email (she's amazingly helpful...if something's not working, spend her an email before giving a bad review. She'll probably be able to help). I will say it works much better on my Nexus 5 than it did on my previous phone where I did experience some of the crashes others talk about--but that is one of the hazards of having an older device.
Great Start but lets get some updates OMGs I've been waiting for this, being able to access Ravelry this way is a dream come true and its going to get me to use the website more effectively in terms of my profile but I've a couple of suggestions. Can I have access to my library as well as project and hooks (with click able links if possible)? . Also, it would be really useful if you could refine your searches the same way you do on the web format. Obviously you can't put in all the advanced search criteria into the add but just being able to weed out the free and paid for pattern, yarn weights and main category headings would help so much.
Great app to help me have Ravelry on the Go. I really like this app! The updated version is great! I like that I can edit my works in progress without having to sit at the computer. I can make notes about each pattern as I make it and have them saved for later reference . Being able to see my "stash" while I am at the yarn store helps me from over buying yarn (like that is a real problem, you can't have too much yarn!!) The pattern and yarn database search is a big help. If I find a yarn I am not familiar with, I can look it up! I can pick a new pattern based on the yarn I already have. Or I can buy new yarn based on what is in my favorites or in my que. Being able to add to my "stash" the instant I purchase the yarn is also a nice benefit. (I enter the basics, snap a photo, upload it. When I get home I can edit that stash entry to give the finer details.) Another neat feature is also being able to look up what knitting needles and hooks I already have. That way if I am buying yarn for a project I can look and see if I have the right size needle already or not. The one thing I wish it could do was access the forums. But that is not really that big of a deal. This is a great app and I highly recommend it!!
Adding projects is key I use Ravulous a lot. I like the interface better than Ravelry on my phone. But it annoys me that I can edit projects, but not create new ones. So I create a project on the website, then open Ravulous to edit it, then wonder why I bothered. I'm left feeling like I use the app mostly to justify having it, but that it's actually superfluous.
