I wish I had not purchased it. I am fairly competent on following directions and have 2 college degrees but this is very disappointing. I have referenced the manual a few times and played around a lot. But still can not get a iron bead pattern made from a jpeg photo either automatically or filled in by me.

UPDATE II - that was fast. The apps in iPad said it was *Updated*, after posting 👇 there was another update. Timing, I’m guessing. The little hopeful part of myself would like to think that the makers responded that quickly. 😸 Thank You! UPDATE!! Whatever this *NEW UPDATE* you guys did is TERRIBLE! The charts are completely off, have to draw on the line beneath the one you want to mark in order to get results. There was NO *glitches* prior, for the amount of money that is charged for this, this is now a BUMMER. PLEASE FIX THIS! Use this daily, this is a Major P.I.T.A. 🤬once fixed you’ll get your 🌟🌟🌟 back and title changed back to AMAZING! ok, wanted to give it 5 stars but have never paid this much for an app, ever. Once you get inside though it is so worth it. The only thing if the graph could be larger than 250, but it does what needs to be done. Still trying to figure out the other things that am unfamiliar with, always like to learn. If you are wanting to make your own patterns this is a good starting point. If you are unsure of the price, think about it, you pay this much for the materials that you work with. Here you are paying one time and have endless possibilities with your creativity from your imagination!

I am ecstatic. I create black work designs and this makes them incredibly fun and easy to do wherever the mood strikes. Photo and PDF capabilities make it easy for me to share on my blog as well. Bravo!

Once I figured out the different tools, I've been able too create my own cross stitch patterns with ease, that includes all the details I need, like backstitch, half stitches, etc... I would love to be able to search for a color by its number rather than just scan the colors. Overall it's a great tool!

I design my own cross stitch patterns and there are a lot of features that I really love about this program. My major complaint is that there is no way to make half stitches. A lot of the patterns I design have to be altered because there's no way to split a stitch to have two colors. My other frustration is that there is no way to alter the key when printing; sometimes I use a color just for back stitching and I would rather be able to show a line in that color in the key instead of a boxed stitch symbol.

I initially was able to key in words then suddenly I couldn't do that anymore. I went to the user manual and there is no instruction on that functionality.

UPDATE: After having this app for years, I had to restore my iPad. When I did, I lost ALL of my patterns. I sell my patterns on Etsy, they are my lively hood. I am so disappointed that this app has no way of getting all your patterns back if you are made to re-download their app. There needs to be some form of back-up built in. I usually keep all my patterns in my Dropbox just in case, but their option to open a document from the cloud doesn’t work. I am very upset. I make patterns almost daily. This app is so close to being just what I need. If only there was a nice easy way to do solid half stitches, not just a back stitched line. And also, if the chart could be larger than just 250x250. Mainly though, the half stitches. Please include this in the next update!!!!

My favorite use of this app so far is the tracing paper mode. It works great!

I was a bit skeptical when I first saw this app, but I'm glad I bit the bullet and bought it! It has made putting together cross stitch patterns so much easier than doing it on my laptop. It's easy to pick and replace colors, export as a pdf file, and customize basically every part of your project. Highly recommended!

This is a horrible app that is a shake down. It either doesn't work or is impossible to understand. Cannot create what it promises. Please give me my money back. When you charge this amount you are asking people to trust you and you are using people through misrepresentation.
