Cross Stitch Design and Markup
Designed for iPad
MobiStitch is a great new iPad cross stitch creation software from the people that brought you MacStitch and WinStitch.
Design from scratch using a range of drawing tools, using finger or Apple Pencil.
Import photos (or clip art ) and convert them to cross stitch at a size you specify, while setting a maximum number of shades.
Allocate / change symbols used for the colors
Markup your work on screen.
Supplied with definitions for DMC, Anchor, Elizabeth Bradley, Weeks Works colors
Open and save charts compatible with MacStitch 2021 or WinStitch 2021, of up to 500 stitches & 70 colors
(You can also use these apps to turn your charts into PDFs or print to your own printer)
Create PDFs for your own use or for resale.
MobiStitch can read charts placed in shared documents folder, but not iCloud.
MobiStitch is not designed for opening or using PDF files bought online.
New: the ability to use an Onion Skin image which is embedded inside an OXS file coming from MacStitch or WinStitch.
Also amends the way vertical and horizontal simple backstitch lines are drawn.
Previously, these would appear at some point to the left or above the pen.
Now they snap to the closest vertical or horizontal line, (which may be below or to the right of the pointer)
Fixes bug with incorrect size when importing.
Imported image is kept at full resolution to assist tracing of gridded scanned charts (onion skin)
- was previously reduced to (chartsize * 4) pixels to save memory
Ratings and Reviews
I should have paid attention to the reviews. This program is unusably buggy. I can’t get anything done. What a colossal waste of money. I love winstitch and was excited to have something to use on the go with a compatible file type. Unfortunately this program is not it. I’ll go back to sketching in other apps and manually transferring.
Okay, but needs work. Very glitchy.
EDIT: This app needs serious help! Several times, I’ve started new designs, named them, saved them, made lots of progress, saving as I go. THEN, the next time I open the app the file is completely gone!!! Why?!? It’s infuriating!
I’ve had MacStitch for a few years, and hoped this would work as well, or better. However, it’s very glitchy. The app just deleted a section of a design that I didn’t want to delete! When using the selection tool, the menu comes up asking if I want to copy, erase, flip, etc. When I choose ‘Erase’ the area I selected isn’t affected at all. However, a random area nearby is deleted. It happens every time I try it. It’s also annoying that although I can use the ‘Cloth’ option to erase/delete whole stitches in a rectangular selection in one step, I have to delete back stitches one square at a time. It’s tedious. Being able to rotate the canvas would be very useful.
Developer Response ,
HI. Sorry to hear about this. We have addressed the deletion of incorrect area (this happened after scrolling the image) , and added a new option to erase backstitch from a selected area. These fixes will be in V1.3, currently in the Apple review pipeline.
Its Ok but could be great!
Some updates needed:
Ability to print PDFS, images and share those
Ability to save file to dropbox so we can get it to the pc without itunes which is such a headache
Ability to select and move the selection, not have to save it somewhere else and then erase it, then paste it to the new spot when it could just be moved
Ability to rotate the selection from vertical to horizontal
Get rid of the view selection. On the ipad you can pinch and zoom and move around with your fingers. No need to select the area you want to work on, on the viewer. Its very cumbersome to use and takes away a big portion of your working area.
This app could be do great as a stand alone design tool if a few changes were made.
