StitchBuddy HD can modify and convert embroidery files. Parts of a design can be flipped or rotated, moved, or deleted. Multiple designs can be combined using Copy & Paste, and thread colors can be changed.

Change individual thread colors, or replace the entire thread palette.
Select from several different manufacturer thread charts.
Copy and paste, rotate, flip, move, resize or delete selected stitches or the entire design.
Center the design or add basting stitches with just two touches.
Extensive display options include zooming, 3D stitch display, show or hide jump stitches, show or hide the first and last stitch, design center, or stitch structure.
Printing detail sheets on AirPrint printers
Mailing embroideries as design files or PDFs (as detail sheets or real-size templates).

Apple has just approved a new version of StitchBuddy HD, and I have updated the Mac version, too: Version 2.4.4 is now available for both platforms and supports Coats Rayon and Trilobal thread charts. In addition the iPad app has a feature to highlight a selected thread, which makes it easier to identify where a specific color was used in a design.

This week I released v2.4.5 of StitchBuddy HD, adding Janome JPX read support and WonderFil's Splendor thread chart.

As a Black Fridy Sale and to celebrate StitchBuddy's 5th anniversary I offer a 70% rebate Nov 23 - 30, 2012!

In addition to the release of StitchBuddy View I've updated StitchBuddy HD to support the same Dropbox synchronization, searchable gallery, and extended working area.

I know that a lot of you would like not only to view, but to edit embroidery designs on your iPad, upgrading from the free version to StitchBuddy HD (http://itunes.com/apps/stitchbuddyhd). And I also know that this purchase is not an easy decision with a tight budget (like most of us have). So finally I decided to drop the price of StitchBuddy HD significantly:

Starting today with a new iOS 7 version StitchBuddy HD (http://itunes.com/apps/stitchbuddyhd) is sold for only USD 9.99 (65% off!), with free updates. And this is not a one-time offer, but a permanent price reduction, so please enjoy and share this info with others!

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Both iOS apps, StitchBuddy View and StitchBuddy HD, have been redesigned to meet the flat user interface of iOS 7. These changes come with some minor improvements e.g. a better display performance and support of single-stitch selection on the iPad (details can be found in the change history). But more important is the fact, that starting with v2.6 both apps require iOS 7. It just became to much effort to support older iOS versions in parallel as Apple has changed a lot under the hood. In addition I lack the required testing devices to ensure proper quality checks with older iOS versions.

Update your apps for free or download StitchBuddy View / StitchBuddy HD from the Apple App Store. Please share your opinion at Facebook, and support StitchBuddy by leaving a rating / review in the App Store.
