How not to talk to an app developer 2

Another fun email:
When I open all I get is yarn I own/yarn I need and nothing else.  What is up with that?  One of two apps I ever purchased!  I only use free for a reason as they work better than paid for apps I guess.  I think this app is a fraud.  My free apps all work.
Granted, my documentation is poor.  I'm a programmer, not a great communicator.  I've emailed this person back and explained how to use the app, but I don't expect a reply or a fix for the poor rating they left.


  1. How do I see a list of all the threads I have put a 1 against to show that I have them? In one list, without having to go in and out of the manufacturers & rayon/cotton/etc categories?
    Q2. Is there a way to find equivalent/s for a desired thread colour?

  2. 1. At this time there is no way to see your full list of threads. That is on my to-do list.
    2. I've been asked a lot about a conversion system but I'm afraid it's simply too subjective to put in the app. In addition, it would be incredibly rigorous for me.

  3. I'm sorry you've been treated this way. I just ordered an android phone (haven't received it yet though) and the stitching community I belong has recommended your downloads. Be prepared for questions to come your way, LOL!

  4. I am actually having the same problem as the original post. I have uninstalled the app and reinstalled twice and the same happens. All I have is two tabs at the top yarn I own and yarn I need. I can click on them and the bar turns green but thats it. How can I make the app work?

    1. Hi Shelley! Hit the menu/options button on your phone to get more options (such as add yarn, add template, etc). Don't forget to add a quantity to the yarn or it won't show up in the owned/wanted list.

      If you don't own or want any, then it won't show up if either button is toggled on. To see those you'll have to toggle both buttons off. :)

    2. Thank you so much! I would never have figured that out.

  5. Will there be updates or can we add new colors to gentle arts or weeks thread lists
