Terrible Search Really bummed. One of the things I love most about Ravelry is its search configuration and the fexibilty and detail it allows. I was really bummed this app didn't mimic that. In fact the only thing you cab search on is keyword. No needle size etc. Also it doesn't have a feed page. No popular patterns or newest added etc. Makes using it to look for new fun patterns pretty much useless. I'm considering developing my own app I was so disappointed.
UPDATE: reinstalled on my new S5 and it's no longer crashing so v happy. Still could do with a few tweaks to make perfect (deleting pics from projects for example) eo not quite a 5 star app but almost there. ORIGINAL REVIEW: So disappointed with this app. Great in principle but the app constantly crashes (I get notifications that it's unexpected stopped even when I'm not using it) and now when I use the app it closes every single time I try to open my projects.
Very limited functionality. It's good for uploading new pictures to existing projects but that's about it. I've had crashing problems recently so I reinstalled. The search function leaves a lot to be desired, it can't handle anything advanced. It notifies about forum replies and messages, but just directs you to the site for replies, which is worthless on mobile. Not worth the purchase price.
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!!
If I might suggest improvement, its to allow pics to go to the handspun section under stash. Or spinning projects! (Which Rav has now). I'm lowering it a star since it's been a long time and no updates or word on when fiber and spinning will be available.
No access to my library The one thing i need access to the most i don't have. But what is there is great. When u go to my projects it shows pattern name and generic info but still doesn't take me to the pattern in my library. If i have to go online for Ravelrey for that then not much use for the app
