If I want to buy patterns or magazines I will seek them out. This was touted as a knitting app. It is nothing of the sort. It’s. Platform to sell print material online, nothing more.
I spent $60 on a year subscription and bought it on my iphone. Now, I can't see it on my computer at all and apparently you can ONLY view it on an iphone or ipad. That is horrendous for knitting. I have bad vision and I honestly can't see the pattern well enough on my iphone to be able to knit. Really disappointed that there is no way to view this magazine on the computer if you are unlucky enough to have purchased it using an iphone.
iPhone version won’t restore purchases 1/5
I bought all the back issues via the iPad version of the app. They won’t restore on my iPhone. Several times yesterday I also got error messages saying it couldn’t connect to the App Store. Seems to connect today, but still won’t restore purchases. The iPad version is fine though it seems to get stuck in a refresh cycle frequently.
Love it!!! 5/5
I love having my magazines everywhere I go.
I love The Knitter! 5/5
This app provides me with my favourite knitting magazine at a fraction of the cost of a paper subscription, with quick access without waiting for it to come in the mail. New issues load faster than some other digital magazines, which I won't name, and without having to refresh the app data every time.
Really like this one... 5/5
By Another 2
The magazine offers some unique but friendly styles. Modern with clean lines. I have subscribed to all the big ones for years and find I may cancel most in favor of this one going forward. Simple to use, notice of new editions and downloads handy.
The best 5/5
By Old Vicki
I've had this magazine for a couple of years and have even got all available back issues. Every issue has great designs for family members. I'm a lace Knitter so I eagerly await shawl designs. They are always by top notch designers and even the ones I don't want to work are pretty. One of the great things is you can print from the magazine. Not all online subscriptions do that. The price is reasonable and if you subscribe for longer periods the price is even greater. I'm eagerly awaiting for my next issue.
Wonderful magazine!! 5/5
Love this app!
Purchasing all back issues 5/5
By Prof Angel
I know a customer had a problem accessing theirs. Mine are all there. Really love the monthly MasterClass.
Worked good at first 1/5
By Lambs Ears
I was thrilled with this at first, even buying the back issues at a special discount. It wasn't long after that that it suddenly quit loading the previously viewed magazines, giving a black screen and 0 indicating that it was not downloading. In fact it is on my iPad, but it just isn't opening. I've contacted support 2 times previously and got extremely long, complicated directions that I tried to follow. First time, it didn't work and the second was so long and complicated I never could figure it out! I thought it was a problem with my iPad and thought it would, rectify itself when I got a new one. Nope. Still doing the same thing. I've contacted support yet again. This is doing me no good if I can't read old issues!
I cannot recommend this app as long as these issues continue.
Love the magazine, very inspiring. And having it instantly available is like taking a whole library of books with me. Thanks!
Love this app
Beautiful photography, great patterns from well accomplished designers. Really enjoying.
Terrific patterns 5/5
Love the patterns in the issues. Lots of variety. Also, great ideas just from ads. Look forward every month to a new issue.
By Yaya's Hand Knits
I love this magazine! It's one of my favorites!
By math wizard
The magazine has always been a favorite of mine. The new application now with the favorite feature allows me st save so I do not have to keep flipping through each issue to find particular patterns.
Nice knitting mag 4/5
Love the magazine but subscription price is to high compared with other knitting mags.
Great resource! 5/5
Great magazine, great app. Thanks!
The patterns are great, and the magazine as a whole is visually stunning.
Knitter is super 5/5
The Knitter has a great selection of patterns and variety of skill levels. I look forward to each issue!
Best Knitting Magazine! 5/5
I love that each pattern and article is written to challenge me to learn more and be a more proficient knitter. This is not a beginner magazine. Though as a beginner, I learned lots from this group of people. I eagerly wait for each issue and adore the special issues. Keep them coming!
Love The Knitter 5/5
I love the magazine. The patterns aren't dumbed down and are well presented. The articles are interesting and educating. The app works for me as I can read any edition, anywhere, anytime. Yahoo!
Very Happy 5/5
I have been very happy with all my purchases and my subscription. I look forward to each new issue.
I like it 5/5
I do like the Knitter digital. I have really liked having access to the back issues, and many at a discount. Lots of good patterns, and a great way to archive and look at quickly. I use an iPad and have had no problems.
I love the Knitter but paid $60 in MidJuly to complete my collection and still cannot access or read any of the issues. I am disappointed.
useless now 1/5
last update rendered this app completely useless. crashes constantly, can't get to the support menu to report the problem because it keeps opening an the last issue i downloaded even though i keep exiting it! you're supposed to fix the bugs, not introduce bigger ones.
Fantastic magazine! Fantastic app! 5/5
Thanks for bringing us such a marvelous magazine and app to experience all it offers. Well done.
Masters Class 4/5
Excellent topics and explanations. Worthwhile.
Sometimes glitchy 4/5
By Knit faster than uploads
I love the magazine and I love iPad access. The layout is wonderful and printing pages is also a boon in instances where you need to make markups and so on.
I do not like being asked to pay for individual issues when I have an active subscription. I have to wait out the app sticking its hand out for more money! Usually this resolves in a day or so but is time it has been nearly a week and that means I can't view those beautiful patterns yet.
Great magazine 5/5
Love this magazine. Very informative and has great patterns.
New Version Is Very Frustrating 2/5
I have been very frustrated with the new app. I have not been able to get all my purchases restored, even after contacting Customer Service. Every time I open the app, it asks me to subscribe...and I have had a subscription for over a year. It really like the magazine, but it makes me want to cancel my subscription. Please fix the issues!
Slooooooooooooooooooooow to load 2/5
Slow and sticky. Magazine is excellent. App? Needs a revamp of the revamp
By Crafty Librarian
After nearly a month, numerous emails between several people and a lot of frustration, I finally have access to my subscription. My year subscription purchased in the old app was recognized as a free trial during the app transfer- why it took weeks to be diagnosed and fixed I don't know.
One of my little luxuries is reading this with my morning coffee.
How to get old issues back 5/5
This is what I did after updating to the new app. It took time but all of my old issues were back so it was worth it to me. Do not delete your old app. If you did, get it back and reinstall all of your old issues. Go to the Apple App Store and install the new app. Use the restore my purchases option. After a while you should be able to see those issues again and they should be ready for down load. If not, close the app, turn off your iPad, wait a bit and turn it on again. Go to the new app and sync. I did not delete the old app just in case.
This is the most inelegant way of upgrading but it worked for me. The publication isn't exactly the most economical and one would think the IT group would had thoroughly tested the upgrade. Overall, five stars for a great magazine, one star for the upgrade process.
Good now 5/5
At first, I had the same problem as Crafty Librarian but I stayed with it and eventually they were able to get all my old issues synced and the rest of my subscription. I do so love getting Knitter on my iPad and I'm certainly happy the issue was resolved but it took more time and energy to get that to happen than I thought should have been needed. Please don't mess it up again! I like it too much!
Worst company support ever!! 1/5
Love love the magazine but since new app constantly says order or pay and my subscription is good for three more months. Cannot access my old issues. I am totally fed up.
Baaad. App 1/5
I also lost all my old digital issues, this new app isn't working!! Customer support answered but twice their solution won't work. Yuk
Knitter messed up 1/5
I just downloaded the new app and it won't let me sync with my old purchased additions.
I just lost about 50 dollars worth of magazines!!
That is not cool
Could have finished the socks I was knitting with the time I have spent trying to get this app to work. Will not recognize my iTunes subscription and I keep being told that it is fixed. 3 strikes.
Big problem 1/5
By Nashville Knitter
This new app apparently does not allow you to print a page from the magazine. When you are trying to knit a pattern with a chart and you want to follow row by row, printing it out is the easiest way--or importing it into another app where you can mark the rows. The old app allowed this. The new app has no option to do either. So my magazines are no good to me anymore. I will cancel my subscription.
By Reviewer - MT
Can't access any of the issues I purchased in the past with this new app.
