    I have an iPod (iPhone also) and recently while synching it, I discovered three Applications on the iTune store about quilting.

    The names of the apps:

    1. Easy Quilt - lots of information regarding tools, blocks, How to videos, and more.

    2. Quilt Fab - You type in the dimensions of your quilt and it will tell you the amount of fabric you need for backing, batting, borders, and binding.

    3.Quilt Ref - Measurements of various quilts, lots of info about triangles.

    You have your own teacher available, especially the many videos that show you all kinds of tricks.

    Two of those apps are free, one is $2.99 (I can't remember which one)

    Fabulous! I need to buy fabric for my civil war quilt binding. I typed in the size and it told me that I need 3/4 yd using 2 1/2 strips.

    If you have one of these, you should have no trouble downloading them.

    I have Quilt Fab and Quilt Ref and they were free, so it must be Easy Quilt that you have to pay for. I think they are great! I believe the person who created them actually posted here on the board which is how I found them.

    Easy Quilt probably is the one that I had to pay for, but really not very much. I think $.99 to $2.99, I don't remember exactly. It has about 24 How-to Videos with audio that are excellent. It really has a lot of information from start to finish. Well worth the few dollars.

    Have you seen the Block tool. I think it was $3.99 but it is great too.

    I don't care about the phone part anymore, just the apps! I didn't know about Easy Quilt. I'll have to get that one.

    Here is a link for Easy Quilts. It has screen shots of the program. I think it's the best of them all so far. http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/easy-...361000743?mt=8

    These new phones are too high tech for me! I'm sure my children are tired of me calling them and asking them questions when we live 110 miles away. It'll be the same for them when they get older, so I remind them to have patience with dear old mom & dad, lol!! Have fun with your new apps!

    I had it now for about month and use it frequently for information. Well worth the $3.
