As with everything else in life, knitting goes best with what my old mother called a “little application“. Application is a relative of elbow grease, I think. Anyway, it was counted a virtue when I was a child… and application did not come easily to a flighty an interested mind.

Well, times have changed – the meaning of the term application has shifted somewhat and I also now have an Android smartphone, a Nexus. I am slowly being persuaded of its utility, via the Apps. Now I want to be utterly convinced – by installing the killer knitting app.

May I have your recommendations, please, for both Knitting and Spinning apps for the Android o/s. I’m thinking nothing too complex – let’s not reinvent Ravelry – but one stable place in which to record progress on all my projects and in particular on pattern progress through charts. Just a funky Row and Stitch Counter, I’d guess – but I know nothing at this stage and want very much to hear what you have to offer.

In fact, don’t confine yourselves to fibre apps – I’d love to know what I really need to install on my phone, other than Candy Crush Saga.

    You need Ravulous and County Plus. They connect to your Rav account. Try the free version of County and see if you like it. You might also like the Ravelry photo uploader for uploading direct from your phone to your stash and projects.

      I have loaded County but there’s nothing about it that makes me want to get the paid version. As for Ravulous, I am uncertain. I can’t see a need for me to have my Rav stuff on the phone. Maybe when I am more smartphone literate…
