  1. A Level? Seriously? Who knew! I have to get that one for sure. This is a great compilation. Thanks!

  3. Stitch Minder is currently not working correctly. You can't reset your counts on any of the rows. They are working on it, but it is a pain right now. I love the app otherwise. And your iPhone actually has a level (although I really like the look of the Stanley app) with the new iOS update. Open the compass and swipe the screen to the left. A favorite app of mine is for those who spin. It is called the iSpinToolkit. It has so much in one app. It is $4.99, but well worth it if you are a spinner.

  4. Hi, While I could not find this app on my Android phone. I did find, swiss army knife. It has good reviews and a short video as to how to use it. I like that it has a MIRROR! so one less thing to carry in my purse. Also, has a ruler, and several other things, including the level. Although, I haven't used it yet to see how accurate it is. It is a free app.

  5. Thanks for these app suggestions, I especially love the Stanley App, I am always hanging my kids art in different places and would love the easy assistance. Another app worth mentioning would be the Typic app. My jeweler/photographer recommended for editing iPhone pictures. Works great!

  6. I had a hard time finding "The Quilter's Little Helper" until in the search I typed "Robert Kaufman" and the name of the app (at least on my iPhone) was "QuiltingCalc". It did say The Quilter's Little Helper in the app design when the search pulled it up so I knew I was in the right place. Just in case anyone else runs into this problem.

    Thanks for compiling these apps! Such great resources!!!

  8. I did a search for Craft Gawker and Hometalk on Google Play, and neither one were found. Any ideas as to why not? Thanks!

  10. I didn't read through all of the comments, but I wanted you to know that the new iPhone update included adding a level! It's under the compass app - just swipe your finger & you have a level!! :) Thanks for the post
