Please update this app, Janome!

This app has so much potential as an easy way to save, view, and adjust embroidery for beginners in the machine embroidery world. Unfortunately it comes filled with useless garbage embroidery designs which take up tons of space, can't seem to be deleted, and make it inefficient to scroll and search through designs. The price of this app and the quality of my Janome skyline made me assume that it would be a much more professional app. A better system to view thumbnails and store in folders would make a huge difference. I am astounded that they have made no effort to improve this expensive app.

Needs Update

This app has some great potential. In the future would love to see:

1. Link / import with google drive
2. Blank canvas
3. Ability to add multiple designs on one project without having to copy / paste.
4. Easier ways to add stitches (to fill gaps if needed)
5. Better organization of saved / purchased images. Maybe sizing option too.
6. Add skyline s9 to computer selection.
7. Viewable alphabet of purchased font package.

Not horrible app, but for cost would expect developer to read comments and update program as needed.

Embroidery Editing for my iPad!

Love being able to edit my embroidery designs when I travel.
I am really enjoying the cute new designs and the software works perfectly with my other designs stored in my Dropbox folders.
Lettering has fun fonts and is easy to use.
