Pros & Cons - X-Stitch App
It's a great way to catalog your finishes which it what interested me most about the app. Adding in my projects, finished or in progress is easy peasy.
As for tracking inventory - it's ok. Once you add a designer to your chart inventory it's simple enough to add additional charts under that particular designer. Adding threads is cumbersome at best and I can't bothered with that hassle.
What I would like to see is an option to delete designers you don't want/have in your collection and the same for threads. There are far too many designers and threads in those lists that I find scrolling down my screen to be tedious and annoying.
Additionally, I'd love to see an option to categorize your charts. For example: I'd love to be able to see at a glance what Halloween charts I have on hand. Also I'd like to be able to filter my finishes - by year or by designer - instead of just one long list alphabetized by design name.
It's not a bad app, but there's potential to be so much better. I'd love to see more customization as to what items (designers, threads, linens) appear. Because of this inability to delete items that are not applicable to me, I don't see me using it much beyond a journal of my finished projects and inventory of my charts.
Is it worth $2.99 price tag? Not quite. I'd gladly pay that and a little more if the features I've referenced were integrated into the app.
What a gem of an app!!! I started inventorying my Stash after my mother passed away ... she, too, was an avid stitcher. She was a ‘stitch on one project ‘til it’s finished’. After she passed, I inherited all of everything she had as my sister does sewing & quilting ... not counted cross stitch, counted thread or hardanger. I’ve been working on this consolidation for some time. I have scrutinized all magazines & charts so I can sell in today’s market through Facebook: Stash Unloading - Cross Stitch Only. FlossTube has opened up the horizons of the calming & soothing aspect of cross stitch & the ‘need’ to share our usual solo experience of needlework. XStitch has been a pivotal basis for my personal organization & knowing what I own ...
Love this app but one suggestion...
I love being able to use this app and have it seamlessly on my iPad. However, I’d LOVE love love looooooove an option to place in pictures with our journal entries of our progress. Like have a picture and then be able to leave a note on the side so we can go back and look at all we did. This would be AH MAY ZING if this could be a reality. I think a lot of people who use pen and paper to document finishes would use this more because of that feature! Thanks so much! Happy stitching friends!
