Thread Tracker 117 is a simple application designed to help you keep track of your DMC Art 117 Threads, it features all 488 colours in the Article 117 range + 36 417 varirgated, including the new Oct 2013 colours. The application allows you to set 'ownership status' of 'Don't own, Do own, On Bobbin and Need to Buy' per thread. Each thread is presented sorted by Code, with the ability to view a detail page which tells you the number, the colour name, a sample of the colour, view and modify the 'ownership status' and view and adjust the amount you own/need to buy. 4 buttons down the bottom of the application allow you to easily filter out/in threads based upon 'ownership status', allowing you to view only the ones you need to buy, or own easily. A search feature allows you to find threads by their Code.
By setting the Mode on the threads you need to buy to "Need to buy" and then selecting "Don't", "Do" and "Bobbin" so they are in the deselected state, you will be left with a list of the threads you need to buy, hence forming a Shopping List.

It’s ok. Pretty simple design and easy to use. But it has not updated the colors for the new ones. I’ve had to keep a list of a few colors in the notes section because they’re just not available in the list. I do also wish that when searching a color you could automatically start in the number keyboard instead of the letters one. There’s exactly two threads that have letters on their names and I’ve never once searched for them.
This app is nice and helpful. It COULD be amazing if just a few things were improved.
1. Add new colors, having a current color list is absolutely necessary
2. Be able to track what thread you have and what thread you need separately. Meaning, if I have 3 of one color but i need to buy 2 more they should be tracked separately rather than being one or the other.
3. More options in the search feature.
I love the app for what it is but it has some shortcomings, most notably how out of date the thread list is. I understand keeping up with the color changes is a time intensive process but still, that’s kind of what we’re paying for. Alternatively, if we could enter our own thread colors that would be good enough, but you only get what’s in the app. When it goes over a year without an update, there’s a lot of thread I have that I can’t track.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
