XStitcher 4

XStitcher 4 is now released. Can someone try it on the iPad and tell me what you think?


  1. This isn't regarding the iPad but do you have plans to list the GAST & WDW inventory like you have in the CC app? It's so much easier to actually list the number instead of the check marks on the GAST & WDW.
    Great apps!!
    Thank you!

  2. I will do that in the next release of GAST & WDW, maybe in a month or so. Thanks for your interest.


  3. I installed XStitcher on my iPad last night and spent the rest of the evening adding inventory. Added one project, too.

    I like the simple interface and found it quite easy to find what I was looking for. It took a lot less time than I thought.

    Almost didn't buy it; I keep a small stash and felt I really didn't need to keep inventory. I'm glad I changed my mind. I had no idea that I had 5 skeins of 300 Dark Mahogany and only one 310 Black, which of course, is now added to the shopping list. It would be nice to have check boxes for shopping list. Perhaps the next version?

    I came to your site to get the link for my upcoming blog about various iPad cross stitch apps. I'm giving your app an unequivocal thumbs up!

    Thanks for your ingenuity and skill. It is much appreciated.

  4. Thanks, I really appreciate the nice comments. The original reason for this app was exactly as you mentioned - my wife would buy many of the same floss, and I was losing my mind hahahahahhahahahahahah

  5. How do I know what the limitations are for the XStitcherHDF? I have just gone nuts buying some threadworx/Needle Necessities and want a way to manage it but don't know if your HDF will support what I want. Is there somere where I can see a list of the supported fibers in the HDF?


  6. I can send you a trial version if you give me an email

  7. I have XStitcher for DMC on my iPad. I posted a review of it vs. Thread Tracker 117 on my blog. XStitcher won, hands down. You can see my review at: http://crossedstitches.blogspot.com/

  8. I purchased XStitcher a few days ago. I find it very user friendly and easy to figure out. I do wish that there was a way to note how many skeins of floss I have in my stash instead of just noting that I have that color. The other thing that I would like to see is to be able to keep track of the other threads that I own. I do not have many other threads, but occasionally stitch with brands other than DMC. Today I purchased several skeins by Simply Shaker, The Gentle Art and Weeks Dye Works. Likely the threads that I purchased today are not in my stash as I don't have many of those brands, but it would have been nice to be able to tell if I were duplicating. Also it would be nice to be able to keep track of my Krenik braids.

  9. I think I need to add the ability to add custom threads, so if you have a few non dmc you can add them. Thanks for the feedback (and the purchase :)

  10. It would be very nice to have all the programs in one. I have purchased the dmc, specialty threads, beads and the cc. The project I am working on right now uses dmc floss, weeks, and simply shaker. There is no way to put all the threads in one project. This would make shopping easier as there would be one place to look instead of 4. Plus, I would like a way to keep track of Krenik braids and possibly to be able to add other specialty threads.

  11. I am considering putting them together. They are separate because I never intended to do so many :) and early on I was scared of breaking the DMC one (which is my money maker) by adding in the less popular ones. Now that I have 2.5 years under my belt, that fear has gone away, so I may put them together.
