This version incorporates a canvas size based on the opened design, and the corrected VP3 import. The approval of StitchBuddy HD is still pending, but I expect it the next days including the mentioned changes and a basting function using not locking but overlaying stitches. The Mac version has just been released, too, and can be updated for free by registered users.
Have fun with this update, and if you like StitchBuddy I'd appreciate a rating or even a review in the iOS App Store.
Update: It took Apple nearly a week to approve StitchBuddy HD, but finally it's available since January 13th, 2015.
I used this Christmas season to analyze the VP3 file structure more in detail, and finally I found the root cause and how to fix it. With the next release StitchBuddy will import these designs correctly:
After incorporating some further minor changes and testing everything thoroughly, you can expect this update somewhere in January.
Today people highly rely on ratings and reviews, so please don't be shy to share your opinion if you want to support StitchBuddy's development. Here's a direct link to the corresponding App Store page.
If you already left a rating I'd appreciate an updated reflecting the current version. And as I have no possibility to get in touch with a person based on a rating / review: Don't hesitate to contact me directly (e.g. by mail) with any question or problem.
Have a wonderful Christmas season, Matthias
In parallel I submitted new versions of StitchBuddy HD / View for Apple's App Store, with native support of the new iPhone 6 / 6 Plus screen sizes, and a fix of Dropbox syncing in combination with case-sensitive file names. I expect them to be approved in about one week.
Update (2014/10/11): I just decided to withdraw both iOS versions and resubmitted v2.9.2 today: the "zoom-to-fit" (by two-finger double-tap) didn't honor device orientations, and I just fixed it. Now the design will always zoomed to the maximum size while remaining fully visible.
More details can be found in the version history on StitchBuddy's website.
StitchBuddy v2.9 is a free update for all registered users, and can be either downloaded from the corresponding Download page (OS X), or updated in Apple's App Store (iOS).
