Fun things in the Knitting World
Our Review of Knitsy: the fun, new iPad app
We love all things knitting and crochet, in fact it’s why we started Chic-a (to make knitting easier and more fun!), so we decided it would be good of us to let you know about a fun new app that we are loving right now! (Aren’t we kind?)
has just released their new app for the iPad, and we think it’s pretty cool. (Grab your free app here!) They are now ranked at #1 on iTunes for the Free Craft and Hobby Apps.
We like things that are #1, and things that are free, so we decided to give our two cents worth.
The Knitsy Experience
After you download the app, its not as intuitive as you’d think, it actually loads into your Newsstand app. From there, you’ll have to download the issue (there’s only one currently), which takes a little time (and patience!).
Once inside, however, it is full of great pictures, a wide variety of content, and fun interaction (swipe to navigate through the pages, tap twice to see the menu).
The Knitsy Content
Kntisy is full of fun ideas to get your creative juices flowing, whether you like knitting or not. (We love the knitted stools by Claire-Anne O’Brien! And the fact that Ryan Gosling loves to knit.) There are lots of great products featured, an article on “Photo Bombing” (who knew!), and even very tasteful ads (our is on page 16! check it out, let us know what you think!)
Our consensus is that this is a fun and unique magazine format, and a new way to get our reading in about Knitting and Crochet (some of our favorite subjects).
If you haven’t gotten it already, we recommend you do so!
