What's New in Version 2.0
Universal app that supports both iPhone and iPad
Good App for Basic Cleaning
Pros: Been sewing for many years and still learned a couple of things about cleaning my machines. 1inch paint brushgreat idea and also the toothbrush for the feed dogs was a new one for me as I struggled a bit to get them clean. What a concept.
Video is the way to go to get the most out of the app.
This app is great for the beginner to make sure you are keeping your machine clean.
Cons: Gave it 3 stars because with the technology today needed to have more brands of machines demonstrated. Lots of differences in some the machines today and with that we need more of the do's and dont's of keeping our machines running smoothly.
