Customer Reviews

Neat idea… but it needs some work

This app is missing several things…. like another reviewer said…. the match it gives you is highly dependent on the lighting in the photo. Also, if you are taking a picture of a multi-color object, it selects 1 color from the picture and matches to that.

*Why not be able to touch the area of the photograph you would like to thread match?

*Adding the ability to record and save which thread colors you own in your personal stash and being able to choose from a "My Threads" category (like in the 5D software) for color matching would be extremely helpful. I haven't found ANY apps out there to keep track of my embroidery threads.

- Add these features and I will give it a 5 star review. As it stands right now, I am very disappointed…. especially since I paid $2.99 for it. I was really looking forward to this App. With the limited usability if has now, it should be free.

Like it...wish...

The app really does help in choosing a thread color that will match a fabric! I have noticed that it seems to choose thread that is darker than the fabric. I wish there was another button to choose a lighter color thread that matches. I can see this app being very useful for machine quilting also!

5D Threadmatch

Recommended threads seem to heavily depend on lighting and sample size. Tried capturing a spool of thread and the recommendation was not the same as the thread itself. Seems to work better on solid colors than patterns, which is not too much of a surprise, but the colors were off too much (greenish rather than blueish).
