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!
