# The app with potential
In the fall of 2015, I opened the Facebook group to the app, just 100 people +- 5 were a member. From time to time Christian shared news of the development status and let the testers see the first pictures of the app.
To all who have been there from the beginning and have tested, a big thank you! Without your support we would probably have given up long ago.
By the end of December, the app was released on the Google Play Store. We were really excited and happy about every download. Since then, the user base and our Facebook group have grown steadily.
Soon we noticed that there were many other things besides crocheting. Our group members are very creative and started trying out other handicraft techniques. Amongst other things Tunisian crochet, Double Face knit, embroider, paint, and putting iron beads. Christian and I were simply thrilled!
New ideas and possibilities of further development opened up for us.
