We finally finished our KH app update and it was approved by Apple late last night. The updated app now contains 172 knitting videos, which is about 20 more than the previous version. We also replaced about 20 or so videos with newly shot footage.
The biggest feature in the new version is the history. This allows you to quickly recall videos you recently played rather than having to search for it. So if you often need a refresher on, say the Kitchener stitch it will appear under the history.
There are some look and feel changes. The app now supports the larger screen size of the iPhone 5. All icons and graphics are retina ready. I removed the black background and increased the font sizes to help readability. The app also rotates into landscape mode on iPhone 4 and greater.
We managed to do all this and make the app a tad smaller.
If you already own the app, it will appear as a free upgrade in the app store on your iPhone or iPad. If you don't have the app and are interested, you search the app store for 'KnittingHelp
'. It's an iPhone app, but it will work on iPads.
If you are not familiar with the KH app, it's a pocket video reference of nearly every video from this website. It allow you instant access to all the videos, even without internet access. It is the most popular knitting video on the app store with a solid 5 star rating and nearly 800 reviews.
