App Update and In-App Templates

The New Apple Update is only weeks away. When it is released the App Templates will only be available via the App, not on this blog. 

We are testing right now, so it won't be long now. The answer is also YES to the Android version, still a month or two away, but we are working diligently on it. Developing this type of App takes a lot of time to create, so please be patient a little longer.

In the new Apple update there will be 12 new stitches: 2 new Basic Stitches, 6 new Intermediate Stitches and 4 new Advance Stitches. We've also included in this update 4 more Useful tips to assist you with your embroideries. 
Two new FREE projects to entice you to learn new and exciting stitches.  We've added an Embroidery Projects Store tab where we've bundled the In-App projects and the 'Ad Free Version' of the App. 

In this update we've added one new In-App purchase project. We've reduced the prices on the other In-App purchase projects that are currently in the App. Once you have purchased an In-App project it will be placed in your 'Projects' tab.

The Gallery has more eye candy. Several wonderful new Embroideries to show you, some with links to our Etsy Store where you will discover the tutorials, so you too can create these works of Art.  We've also added links to some of the original version Gallery photographs that have tutorials in our Etsy shop.
When the Android version hits the store, it will be as current as this update.
Make sure you check the Blog or Facebook page regularly for when the Android version will be released along with some more new exciting apps, links will be on our 'About Arlene's Crafts' tab within the App.

We also want to read your feedback. Arlene's Crafts Embroidery App is certainly a tool that can travel with you. Who wants to carry several books around with them when they travel around the countryside or at classes or workshops or your chat and stitch sessions.  Whenever you need to look up that 'Stitch' or you want to do a small project while your away from home it's right there in your bag. 

Now if you've read all the way to the bottom of the page and you already have the Apple app downloaded on your iPhone or iPad, leave a review on the current version of the app, (click the app store link on the top left, you'll be directed to the iTunes store for you to leave a review). We really want to hear your thoughts, is there something you'd like to see in the next update or something that needs changing, please leave me a comment and you'll go into the draw to receive a kit with printed instructions of the "new" paid in-app project - Value $30 AU.
