Lots of fun to work with. You can save or send it to a machine wirelessly or to other apps. I just wish I could draw with more than one color so the machine would know to stop for a color change.

Ineffective Program

Can draw and erase, that’s it. I need to edit the line but there’s no way to adjust it. There’s no select, copy, paste or edit features whatsoever. Oh if you want to stitch anything besides a single line then open your wallet, because you have to pay. But the program is so ineffective for drawing anything that there’s no reason too. Oh and it offers no fill options either.
Do yourself a favor and skip this app.
