Bead crochet apps for the iphone: it counts for you

Some people love bead crochet, some don't. I'm still undecided and love my single needle beadweaving too much to give it a real go. But, for those of you who are keen bead crocheters or just starting out there is a very simple little app for iphone that might just suit you. It's call Bead Crochet Lite and it's free.

An easy to use app it calculates how many beads you need to string for a specific length of necklace. Just put in the length (cm or inches), how many beads in each round of crochet and bingo it tells you how many to thread. It takes only seconds to download and even fewer to use. Love to hear if any of you who love crotheting have used it and if you think it's helpful.

Also love to hear of any new software that you think is a must for beaders.
