Ribblr FEATURE DROP - a major update out now! 🔥

Hi Ribblrs,
During the last 5 weeks since our previous feature drop, we’ve worked on some of the most requested features and we’re super excited to finally share them with you! :purple_heart:

This new update is available right away on all of your devices.
We’ve also released a new app update. If you haven’t already - download the Ribblr app for iOS and Android for free.

As always - we welcome your feedback! Comment below and if can leave a quick review for our app, that would be awesome.

Finally, many thanks to everyone who tested this version!

Table of contents

Pattern journals (NEW!)

The feature that you’ve all been asking for is here!
Create and manage your projects directly within Ribblr ePattern by clicking the new journal icon.
Write notes, add WIP & FO photos and even select your mood. Ours right now? :partying_face:

Share your journals! Access your public journals by clicking ‘My Patterns’ then ‘My journals’ and hit the share button.
As always - your work is automatically saved and synced on all your devices!

Chart color selection (NEW!)

We all like to use different colors for our projects. And we can finally stop reciting “red is brown… green is yellow…” every time we change yarn color when working with a colorwork chart!

You can now change colors of charts with a single click. Simply go to the pattern’s materials page, select your yarn color and watch the magic happens.

New review system & public journals (NEW!)

Need help finding your next pattern? You can now see other crafters’ reviews and journals on all pattern listings!

You can also review patterns you own directly within your personal journals to help other designers and crafters.

Share your wishlist (NEW!)

You can now share your wishlist with your friends! Click the new lock icon in your wishlist and then hit the share icon. You can always make your wishlist private by clicking the lock icon again.

Shop favorites (NEW!)

You can now favorite shops of designers you love.

Left hand mode for charts (NEW!)

As you probably know, Ribblr is packed with lots of accessibility features.
From dark mode and reduce motion to selecting your size, language and font size.

We’ve now improved our left hand mode, which allows left hand crafters, to craft with ease. Craft charts from left to right, instead of the default. (right to left)

Add personal notes to gifts (NEW!)

You’ve asked us to add personal notes to your gifts and you can now do it!
Go ahead and gift away.

Yards to meter conversion (NEW!)

Our auto convertor just got smarter. We now automatically convert yards to meters and vice versa.

Shop manager improvement (NEW for designers!)

You now see a summary of income, orders, patterns added to wishlists, and shop favorites. Filter stats by week, month, year, and all time and see graphs.

Drag multiple lines in Ribbuild (NEW for designers!)

Select and drag multiple lines at once when editing your patterns.

Add notes to interactive charts (NEW for designers!)

You can now add notes to interactive charts to share important information. (e.g special stitches)

General improvements and bug fixes

  • Our help center and manuals were updated with new information
  • The website and app work much faster now
  • You can now jump between all pages of a pattern using the improved ‘Go to’ menu
  • A new icon in all craft pages to help you easily scroll back to the top of the page
  • Knitting: more abbreviations and stitch tutorial videos added
  • Tunisian Crochet: more abbreviations and stitch tutorial videos added
  • You can now upload multiple photos to your patterns on our Android app

We also had to do some frogging and fix some bugs.

  • Fixed: a bug in Android 11 when uploading photos in Ribbuild mode

I was wondering if it’s possible for you to make PayPal as an option to pay for a pattern.

Awesome! @Willow1968

Currently this isn’t available as it means all independent designers would have to be a hefty fee.
There is, however, support for all major credit and debit cards as well as Apple Pay and Google Pay.

Would these options help? @RajiK
