Calling all knitty geeks – your iPhone app is here.

I randomly decided to do a Google search for ‘iPhone craft app’ (or iPod touch in my case) here is what I found:

Stitchminder FREE

The program provides four customizable counters that can be used to track rows completed, pattern rows, increases, and decreases. Counters can be configured to count upwards or downwards, and your counts are always stored when you close the program or if you are interrupted by a phone call.

and Knitminder $4.99

Got a yarn stash but don’t know what’s in it? Did you finish that last decrease on that hat you haven’t picked up in four months? KnitMinder is the replacement for all of those scraps of paper, bulging notebooks, various row counters, and multicolored post-its that you use to keep track of where you are on the four different projects you’ve got started but haven’t finished.

KnitBuddy $4.99

KnitBuddyTM is a complete digital organizing, tracking and planning app for the active knitter. Keep all of your project notes, multiple row counters, needle and crochet hook inventories, yarn stash and swatch info with you when you’re out knitting or buying supplies at the local yarn store. Never buy a row counter or duplicate needles again!

Knit Counter by cordless dog. 3.99$
Knit Counter is a convenient way to store stitch counters and project information for multiple knitting projects.

For the home design fanatics out there there is an app called Mark On Call. $4.99

Created by interior designer Mark Lewison, Mark On Call™ for the Apple® iPhone and iPod Touch, lets the interior design professional, their clients—and do-it-yourselfers alike—plan, preview and carry out their design visions while staying organized and within budget.

There are a ton of cooing apps too. But what I would like to see in a cooking app is one where I can send a recipe from a cooking sit like epicurious or FoodProof right to my phone to have later because I HATE having to have my laptop on the kitchen counter while I am cooking.

    Paul Mietz Egli, the developer of StitchMinder and KnitMinder here — I wanted to say thanks for mentioning my apps! If you have any questions or suggestions for knitting apps in general or my apps in particular, feel free to contact me through the Quilt2Go web site. I also wanted to mention that you can try KnitMinder Lite for free before buying the full version of KnitMinder. They work exactly the same, though the Lite version only allows a limited number of projects, yarns, and needles. Thanks again!

    Ooo I’ve been trying to research crafting apps for a future BlogHer post. There are so few out there- and all for iPhone at the moment.

    This is the best list I’ve found. I’ll be pointing readers here for sure.
