Ravulous is an Android app that lets you view and edit your Ravelry projects, queue and stash on your phone. I’ve seen comments that you can look up patterns too, but I haven’t worked out how to do that yet. Anyway, I reckon this might be the best $1.54 I ever spent.
Now I can add my working notes to a project in Ravelry, like calculating row counts, and check and update them anytime on my phone. Great for lunch time knitting in the park, and hopefully this should work out a lot better than writing things on bits of paper which always seem to disappear at crucial moments.
And now, when I see some great yarn in a yarn shop I can check my queue to see if it might be suitable for a project I have in mind and work out how much I should buy. I’m sure there are more uses I haven’t thought of yet.
There’s a Ravulous group on Ravelry too so you can keep up to date with developments and ask for new features. I also have the developer Polly McEldowney’s free knitting row counter app County and I’m thinking of investing another $1.54 in the paid version CountyPlus because it integrates with Ravulous and lets you keep track of multiple projects. There have been a couple of times I haven’t been able to start on a project because both my counters were spoken for. For more info see Polly McEldowney’s apps page
on Google Play.
One of my Twitter knitter pals is after something similar for iPhone and we haven’t been able to find one yet, so do let me know if you’ve found something, or any other neat knitting and crafting apps!
