County - a row counter app for Android phones
I got bored of constantly losing my place in knitting charts so I wrote a row counter app for my Android phone. It's called County, from BobbinsSoft, and is up in the market now, should any other of you lovely knitter types have a need for such a thing. It'll always remember where you're up to, making life much easier if you are trying to hold a conversation / watch tv / drink beer whilst knitting. It works on old and new phones with big and wee screens.
There is a single-project free version, and a super awesome version County+, available for one lousy english pound. As well as allowing multiple projects, County+ lets you import WIPs from Ravelry, edit Ravelry project notes, share your finished projects with Twitter/Google+/Facebook and more... a must in every serious knitter's toolkit!
