Finally! Ravulous -A Ravelry App for Android

ravelousIf you've been on Ravelry, then perhaps you've been one of those people who desperately want a Ravelry app for your iPhone or Android. I can understand the appeal. Imagine getting to organize your stash, knitting books, notions and needles all on your smart phone and having it link up with Ravelry's comprehensive database. That was the expectation I had when I found that there was a new Android app for Ravelry.

I was hoping that I would be able to manage my entire stash on my phone. This would be great. I could take pictures and link them to the stash. Alas this is not the case with Ravulous. As of right now you can only view and edit your current projects, which is great, but I want more. I don't know if this is on the agenda of the programmer, but any additional functionality would be worthwhile. I would pay more money for more features. Otherwise, it's easier to just use the web browser to hang out on Ravelry.

The bottom line: if you want an easy way to show off your current knitting projects. Ravulous provides a quick way to download your current projects to edit as you knit and to show your friends.

hi, i'm the developer of Ravulous. Thanks for the review! It's good to know what people think about the app. Yes, I'm definitely planning to add in more features such as stash in the future. It's unlikely i'll be able to come close to replicating the full awesomeness of the ravelry website on a phone, but hopefully i'll be able to give people some useful on-the-go type tools...

Polly, any chance your app will be available for the iphone in the future? :-)

I'm knitting. I've been caring for my two sons, living at my MIL's house, volunteering at our local co-op preschool and gardening. Trying to find time to write and to redefine this blog to embrace my current reality.
