FREE … Aurifil iPhone App

This latest innovation from Aurifil is awesome. 

The FREE iphone App from Aurifil to locate shops & product information

With this App you will always have a locator for shops, that sell Aurifil threads, at you finger tips.

The address, telephone number, email and website information is listed for each shop, plus a google GPS travel map to help you find the shop when travelling by car, public transport or walking. At this time only the shops in USA, Australia & New Zealand are listed, but the Aurifil stockists in the rest of the world will be progressively listed in the next few weeks.

A useful quick reference for Aurifil product information on the iPhone App

In addition to the shop finder, there is a quick reference guide to all the Aurifil products and their uses. Given that there are 4 different thread weights in the Cotton Mako’ range, plus the other thread types, this  is very handy when you are planning a new project, and need a speedy reminder as to how each thread works.

Owners of  iPhone, iPad & iPod Touch devices can download the FREE Aurifil application from the Apple App store.

Having had the opportunity to play with the App on a friend’s iPhone, I can recommend it as easy to use, & very useful if you travel. In fact I was left wishing I could keep the phone just to keep playing …..  I have to admit to being a little envious as I am the sad owner of a very basic mobile phone.

However, given that it is nearly the Christmas season and I was determined to feel generous,  I did a search to see how many other textile related iPhone Apps I could find for my friends.

Now be warned I’ve not tested any of these, and do not know if they are free or require a payment, so please do your own research.

If , like me, you do not own an iPhone, or other such device, I apologise for any frustration, and envy, that this post might generate. I guess that we will just have to continue doing things the old fashion way … with yellow pages and internet searches.
