Just doesn’t work

I purchased the book because you received a free download, which would allow you to search and display various stitching options on your iPad or iPhone. The app displays a white screen. I have contacted the publisher in a variety of ways but, within six months, have yet to hear anything. The app is not worth your time. Apple should removes these two apps from the App Store.

App can’t keep up with technology!

Very disappointing. After spending $50+ on the new book and waiting almost a year for the app to come out, the app seemed promising. However, recent updates now make it useless! The book appears, then fades away to a blank screen. No stitches... nothing! EPIC FAIL!


Have been tricked

Spent $14 on app version of the full version of Needlpoint Book 6 mos ago. It worked then,with some tinkering, but now has turned into a blank page. I need to see the types stitches to complete my project. Whom do I contact to correct this or get a refund???? Very frustrating !!!
