The website does work on the iPad and iPhone. When I got an iPad in May it was a priority to get the videos to work. I had hoped to make it Android friendly too, but it looks like Android has limited website video support. So that's on hold ;(

The KnittingHelp.com iPhone application will work on both iPhone and iPad, however it will display in windowed display on the iPad. We are working on making it sized for the iPad and that should be ready next month.

I just bought a Nook Color. I'm in love but it would be better if videos worked! I did some Googling, and it appears that maybe next month an update will be released to address this issue. I will be tickled pink if that happens! Then my Nook will be just perfect!

Right now, the videos on this website will work on desktop computers (using flash video) and iOS devices (iPhone, iPod, iPad) using MP4 video. No promises on anything else. I am hoping to introduce some additional formats that will address video playback on other devices. However, standards thus far have been fairly elusive when it comes to mobile video. Apple has been promoting HTML5/H264 video, and Google seems to be heading there with Android as well. I am hoping that the mobile makers will put their heads together and agree upon one video format that works across all devices. That will probably happen, but my guess is it will take some time.

Thanks so much! Amy and I appreciate it! You should be able to buy the app once and install it to both the iPad and iPod Touch provided you are using the same iTunes account. Later this month we hope to release an update that will make the app full size on the ipad.

If you have a moment, please visit the app store and leave a rating and a review. It helps people determine if the app is right for them. I also enjoy reading them.
