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!!
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.
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
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.
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.
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.
