How to Get the knitCompanion App
The knitCompanion app, designed by Create2Thrive, is available wherever you get your favorite phone or tablet apps! I downloaded mine from the Google Play store, as I have an Android phone. Just search for KnitCompanion and install it! Both free and paid versions are available. I was given a trial membership to the paid version for review. Here's a screenshot from the Play Store!
What's Can You Use the knitCompanion App For?
Don't be fooled by the name! The knitCompanion app is for knitting, as well as crochet, embroidery, and even cross-stitch patterns. Any pattern PDF in your Ravelry library or Dropbox can be added to the app, and then you can use its handy tools to make it easier to read!
So What Does This App Do?
Essentially, it quickly and easily uploads your patterns all to one place. Then, you can open them in the app and use the guidelines to help you keep your place, row by row, stitch by stitch! And it comes with some free patterns too - bonus!
In addition, there's a super handy built-in ruler, in both metric and imperial.
The app always remembers your place, which is so handy with long and complicated patterns - and charts too! And with the stitch/row counters along the side, you'll always know right where you left off. There's even a project timer, great for contract stitchers!
Finally, you can use knitCompanion to turn your PDF to portrait or landscape mode - whatever is easiest for you!
Overall, there's a little bit of a learning curve for this app, but once you get the hang of the functions, it becomes a handy tool for all your PDF-ed projects - anything with line by line instructions!

KnitCompanion is a FABULOUS app! I use it for everything whether knit or crochet. I don’t print any patterns; everything I can get electronically goes into my Dropbox to later be accessed in the app. They have excellent tutorials and I’ve watched many of their presentations at Virtual Vogue Knitting. I love that I can sync between my tablet and phone so I’m never without it.
I am definitely going to try this! It will be especially helpful on my iPad.
I use it all the time, I love the multiple counters. Only wish you could turn a chart on end for c2c graphs
