needs more work Review by Babaluga

At first glance this looks indeed like a handy little app - until you try to change your measurements to metric. No matter whether you choose imperial or metric, the gauge always reads in stitches per inch. Being a metric knitter, my gauge comes in number of stitches per 10cm, and while it's easy enough to roughly translate that, roughly isn't good enough for my liking. The app's obviously geared towards an American market and not that useful for people elsewhere.
