Description

The #1 mobile assistant of advanced cross-stitchers. Created for easy reading and markup of cross-stitch patterns, to speed up the needlework process.

The application produces an interactive cross-stitch pattern from source files of pattern making programs:
• Cross Stitch Professional Platinum (XSP)
• Pattern Maker v.4 (XSD)
• PC Stitch v.6-10 (PAT)
Professional cross-stitch designers distribute protected pattern files:
• Exported from the Cross Stitch Saga mobile application (SAGA)

Note: the application doesn't open patterns from pdf nor raster/vector file formats (jpeg, png, ai etc.).

•• Features and benefits:

The application opens an interactive pattern with the different configurations of stitch types (cross, half-cross, quarter cross, petit, oblong, backstitch, long stitch, french knot, decorative stitches) and beads.

The application is suitable for various methods of cross-stitching, such as "parking method", "cross country method", for complex patterns with backstitch, etc.

The application keeps a detailed calendar of cross-stitching statistics on your marks in the pattern.

The application supports the installation of additional user fonts.

The application works in both landscape and portrait orientation provided that auto-rotation is enabled on the device.

• Add cross-stitch patterns of allowed file formats to the application from e-mail, website or via Dropbox cloud service
• Use the built-in calculator to estimate materials (fabric, floss, and beads)
• Mark what is already stitched (color up or erase) in a convenient way
• Instantly navigate through the pattern, scale without loss of quality
• Control the visibility of stitches on a pattern: highlight, isolate the necessary elements of the pattern, turn off the layers according to their types
• Instantly get all the information about each pattern element (type, color, number of threads, blended floss content)
• Customize the appearance of the pattern — set any color of the symbols, stitch fills, grids, background, diagonal and zigzag guides, borders and background of the isolated cross-stitch area, etc.
• Set marks for "parked" floss on the pattern
• Participate in cross-stitch competitions and marathons
• Save the progress of the pattern marks on the Dropbox for safekeeping or later synchronization to other devices

An interactive cross-stitch pattern is a pattern that you control!
