Customer Reviews

App crashing after update

I use this app to get my designs from Dropbox to my Skyline S9. It has been working fine until the update to “fix” Dropbox. Now it crashes every time I try to access designs in Dropbox. The app indicates it has iCloud accessibility, but it won’t stay connected. There is virtually no support, within the app or on the website. Clicking on app support in the App Store takes you to tutorials on YouTube. I don’t need help on how to sew- I need help with this app! Now tonight I opened the app and was working with a file and suddenly all my downloaded files were gone! Everything I had customized is lost. Very frustrated!!!
