When you download knitCompanion from iTunes, there is no charge. You are able to explore and knit the included designer patterns for free, and Quick Start* all the PDFs in your library with our compliments. If you decide knitCompanion is right for you, and you’d like to use the capabilities of Full knitCompanion for all your PDFs you need to purchase Full knitCompanion. Full knitCompanion is available as a time based renewable subscription and there is is also a Lifetime option.
To do purchase is simple. You don’t need to download another app from the store, or go into iTunes on your computer. Instead, within knitCompanion, from the home page (5 big buttons) just tap Preferences (the gear icon in the upper right) and then tap Purchase/Restore at the bottom. You will be taken to the purchase page (if you tap Sami she will explain the benefits of full kC and you can also watch our Video Tutorials to learn before you buy). From there, you can select your purchase option. You will need an internet connection to communicate with Apple, but there is no download associated with the purchase. If you select a subscription purchase you’ll need to register with knitCompanion if you haven’t done so already.
You will know you have a purchased copy of kC if from the app home page you tap that gear icon and see a message that you have purchased kC and/or have days left on your subscription.
If you are putting kC on several devices, you only need to purchase once. Simply install the free app from the app store, and tap the gear icon on the home page. Tap Restore and use the same Apple ID or registration sign-in as the original purchase (required!).
Registration is optional to use free knitCompanion or Lifetime knitCompanion. It is required for purchasing and restoring subscription purchases.
* Quick Start is a knitCompanion capability that lets you take advantage of basic knitCompanion functionality including a sliding marker for tracking your rows, rotate pages highlights, annotations, you are hear marker, counters and more. No setup is required and you can start knitting right away!
