If you have an Android phone, download Writeometer. It is a really great tool for keeping track of your stories, and it’ll tell you your daily, weekly, and monthly progress, your records, how many words/day you need, and a gazillion other things. 

Get MONEY for downloading apps

Hey guys, I have some really exciting news to share with you all!
I recently discovered an app called “FeaturePoints” and you earn points for downloading apps and trying them out!

The points can be redeemed for:
- Money in paypal
- Amazon giftcards
- Itunes giftcards
- Games
- even an Ipad mini

It is 100% real and almost too good to be true but it’s absolutely worth it and I’ve earned over $1000 from downloading apps and sharing the link.

You can download it here: 
If you use my code CS9QNP, you get 50 free points!
Note: Use the link on iphone or ipad!

5 (more) Crochet Android Apps

Last year I did post with four helpful crochet-related apps you can use from your android device. I have broadened my search and found five more apps you can use! Once again, because I feel obligated to say, please remember to use precautions when downloading apps. Read through all permissions, and use each app at your own risk!

1. Crafts Calculator by Hobzy  
Crafts Calculator is a helpful little tool that helps you price your items! It’s very simple: You choose your currency type - Dollars, Pounds, or Euros - add in the cost of materials, the amount of time you spent making the item, your experience level, and the amount of profit you want, then hit calculate sale price and it gives you the amount you should list your item at!



2. Knitty by Collective Creations
Knitty is a fairly simple app that’s more geared toward knitters, but can definitely be used for crochet! You can create different projects, and have a row counter for each, as well as use just the basic counter! What’s unique about this app is that if you sign in, you can unlock “Achievements”! 



3. Knitwits Free by physphil
As with Knitty, this app can help you keep track of your projects and has a row counter for each one. But this one has some helpful tools, like a hook inventory so you can keep track of your hooks!



4. Patternly by iwombit
Patternly is a pattern-writing app that I think is a really neat idea and could be helpful for the designer on the go! 




5. Knitting and Crochet Buddy by Colorwork Apps
When I originally downloaded this, it was just called “Knitting Buddy”, despite having obvious crochet helps and tips. I’m glad to see they’ve added crochet in the name so it’s easier to find! Anyway, at first, this app seems like a very simple project organizer that you can search through by filtering, but when you hit the “global” button, you hit the jackpot! It has a stitch calculator, ruler, flashlight, hook log, hook size chart, abbreviations list, yarn standards guide, sock chart, and other super helpful links! Not only that, it also has a cute little “Buddy Jumper” game for when you just need a break! Buddy is a constantly jumping, mitten-and-sock-wearing yarn ball. Jump on the crochet hooks and collect coins (stitch markers) without falling - but watch out for moths! I don’t feel like you really need to look much further for another app - this one seems to have it all!






Around the time we became involved with The Human Rights Campaign, we started building out Panic! In Vegas, our addictive little game that you’ll get to play very soon (keep reading to find out when ;)). As we were working on the game, we thought why not keep helping the HRC in a fun way? It just made sense to us, take something that’s fun and tie it in with a cause that is incredibly important. As you’re making your way through the 100 levels, you’re helping out an amazing organization (not to mention killing time in a semi-productive way). It’s the best of both worlds! 

Panic! in Vegas - available on the App Store and Google Play Oct 23, worldwide!

Hey! I'm getting an iPad Mini at Christmas which I plan to use for studying, and I was wondering if you could list some apps that you find helpful for that purpose? Thanks!

Hi! Yes, of course!

It took me a while to get used to having an iPad- the whole time I was thinking about how awesome it is, and forgot about the homework I was supposed to do. Now things are a bit better.

  • I take notes using GoodNotes. Some options for those are Notability, OneNote, Penultimate, Noteshelf, Notes Plus
  • All my downloaded documents/pdf/ppts files are saved in the Documents app. Although there may be some free versions that you might like more :)
  • I use Chrome instead of Safari web browser because it seems to be supported by more websites.
  • And I have a Kindle app :)

Hope this gives you some ideas!

Comment and let us know what apps you use, please! I would like to find some more cool ones.
