I was approached by the author of this app, Yarn U, to review the app on my iPad. Yarn U is an app with a database of yarn.
The above is a page from the app showing information on a specific yarn. The information include fiber content, stitch gauge, yardage and even pros & cons of the yarn. There are also recommendations for projects, where to buy the yarn & the retail price.
I find all these information very useful as it helps me review the different yarns that I can use for projects & the app also allows you to share the information with a friend.
There is also a picture gallery where you can see the various yarns & the projects associated with a specific yarn.
This app is really handy for a knitter as you will then be armed with a database of yarn information. The only issue that I have with this app is that I can't find information on one of my favorite brand - Handmaiden & Fleece Artist. Well, I am sure the list will be expanded in time to come.
This app is available in iTunes for A$2.99
