Customer Reviews of the Sockcalc App

Not worth the .99

Not even worth the .99. I entered the gauge and my measurements. It told me to cast on 86 sts. Doesn't have an option for how high you want your socks so I think the instructions are for knee hi's.

Cuff down only

This app would be better if it also worked toe up.

Knee length socks only

This app appears to only work for knee length socks. If you try to leave any of the measurements as a zero it won't let you start the pattern. Very disappointed.

Just like web version but better...

Because I always have it with me! This calculates a knee-high sock, knowing you don't HAVE to make it that long. Love having access to the math!

Not as nice as desktop version

Reviewed on 9/20/19 2:14 PM

I bought this app because I love the desktop software on my Mac. This app is disappointing. It doesn't have standard shoe sizes available, as does the desktop version, so I had to go searching for the required information online. (These socks are going to be gifts; I know the recipients' shoe sizes, but I don't have all of their measurements.) The app will not give you a pattern unless you fill in ALL of the fields, so I had to guess. Once I entered the data, it gave me a pattern for a knee-length sock. Who knits knee-length socks on a regular basis nowadays??? Please fix this.

Don't waste your time!

Why the hell do I need the length to knee if I'm making a crew sock? That measurement is irrelevant. App should calc based on basic measurements entered, but it won't.

Ehhh

Love the idea, not so great on the execution. The gage entry is rather vague. The only option is for kneelength top down socks. Not helpfull if you don't want socks that high.

Love it!

KnittingB's Review of Sockcalc

I love this app! It's great to be able to have my family's measurements all in one place. I like the fact that you can change the gauge for whatever yarn and needles you are using. It is true though that it seems tat you can only make knee hi's, but I'm trying to use the basic pattern and just tweak it a bit. I would love to see an option to make any length of socks seeing as how the measurements are there already. I was a little disappointed tat you couldn't make calf, or ankle socks. Maybe a future update? It's the only reason for four stars instead of 5! It is well worth the $0.99 for this one.

Big heart in the way

There is a pink heart blocking a measurement press fingers on it to make it go away. It's kinda a pain. Also can't seem to do ankle socks which is all I wear. Maybe in an update? Other than that it looks fun. Haven't knitted the socks though.

Doesn't work

It's a fantastic concept, too bad it doesn't work. There's no way to change the gauge numbers. It's great if I'm knitting a sock with 6 sts per inch...but I'm not.
