Knitting Buddy is an Android App that helps knitters and crocheters keep track of their projects. For each project, you can track project features like Name, Status, Category, and Cast On Date just to name a few. Within each project, you can use the row and repeat counters, add pictures, track progress, and track the time it takes to complete each project.
Knitting Buddy also has a lot of “extras” that you won’t find in a typical Knitting App. For example, it has:
- Ruler to help measure gauge
- Flashlights to help you find stitches in the dark
- Needle / Hook Inventory Logs
- Needle / Hook Size Charts
- Knitting / Crochet Abbreviation Charts
- Yarn Charts
A little game where Knitting Buddy jumps on hooks to try to reach the yarn store in the sky, all while avoiding flying moths.
The developer initially built this app for his wife, but was amazed at the response he received when he put the app into the Google Play Store and the Amazon App Store. Both are freely available for download using these links:
Amazon App Store: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00H1J8XZW
The app is totally free, but there is an option to upgrade to a Pro subscription at $0.99/year. The subscription removes advertising and gives you access to some additional "themes" inside the app. Themes allow you to change which buttons are used on the main row counter page.
