AllFreeCrochet Launches First App

June 23 , 2014

Prime Publishing has created a new way for crocheters to access their favorite patterns with the launch of its first app by the popular crafting web site, AllFreeCrochet.com. Released in early February 2014, the app has quickly gained steam in the Apple Store with over 5,000 downloads as of June 2014.

“Having an AllFreeCrochet app has been in the works for quite some time. We realized there was a real need and desire for the app when we learned that more and more of our readers were accessing our site from a mobile or tablet device,” Jenny Benoit, editor of AllFreeCrochet, said. “There are currently more than 200 crochet apps available on the App Store, so we definitely wanted to join the club. We’re excited to have a free mobile app available for our mobile readers and look forward to adding additional enhancements in the future.”

The AllFreeCrochet app is currently available for free at the Apple Store. The app displays the newest content on the AllFreeCrochet site with a slide-out left navigation bar, so users can easily locate their favorite types of patterns. Users can share patterns with friends via text, email, or Twitter, and they can preview the patterns via an image-centric interface. Patterns also display useful, quick facts, such as skill level, hook size, and yarn weight.

Benoit credits other innovate crafting apps, such as Interweave, the Crochet Crowd, Craftsy, Red Heart, Lion Brand, Craftgawker, and Annie’s Crochet as inspiration for their own digital platform. While the popular app review site, iOSnoops, already awarded the AllFreeCrochet app with a “good” rating, the AllFreeCrochet team doesn’t plan to stop there.

“We hope to add a Search function to the app, as well as an option to subscribe to our upcoming premium content, ILikeCrochet.com. We’d also like to add a Video Tutorials section that coordinates with our YouTube channel,” Benoit added.

The AllFreeCrochet app is currently available in the iTunes store for iPhones and iPads. There are plans to launch an Android version later this year.
