We have been cranking away at updates for our apps. We appreciate all the awesome emails about features you want and hope that we can incorporate most of them in the apps. Also, we would enjoy being snowed in if we ever left our homes for work!
We did an update to Fabric Stash. We had been getting some requests that people wanted an easy way to share fabric photos and details easily. So, we integrated a little feature that will send info, pictures included, to anyone by email. Great for sharing photos of fabric you’ve found or sharing info that a friend might want. The feature resides in the top right corner of the items and fabric pages.
We have been reading through all your app feature suggestions and planning our next moves. Right now we have some fun stuff and little tweaks in the works for fabric stash. Beyond those, we have been trying to get a feel where we should spend our time next. If you have a preference on what app you want new features on, let us know! We already have some stuff planned, but always love input. Keep an eye out for the next updates.
This update has been a long time coming. That being said, hopefully you all find it worthwhile. The two new features described below have been the most requested ones and we listened and brought them to you.
-NEW FEATURE: BACKUP FILES! We know you work hard to put your stash in your iOS device and we want to do our part to make sure that hard work isn’t wasted. So Fabric Stash now includes a backup feature that allows the user to create backup files of their Fabrics and Materials and then use iTunes document sharing to export them off the device and store them for if the worst should happen. Then the files can be dropped back into the app via iTunes and reloaded into the app. Its our goal to try to make sure you never need to use it, but we do recommend regular creation of backups of your database, especially during / after entering a large amount of data.
-NEW FEATURE: SEARCH! There is now a search feature which will allow you to use up to 3 criteria to search through your stash of Fabrics. This is a commonly requested feature and we would love your feedback on it and any suggestions you have for improvement.
Beyond these two features we did a major update on how the app looks. We felt the creative people who use our app deserved a little better aesthetic. So, enjoy the update.
We have run into a small issue when trying to make the new update for Fabricstash run smoothly on all platforms. We really want all of the amazing new features to come off without a hitch. We promise the wait it will be worth it.
In that process we have also been discussing what other amazing features we can add to make our projects better. We have what we think will bring the Fabricstash app to the ultimate level in the works. So, keep checking back for more updates and news.
Well looks like more nights of coffee chugging and late night conference calls. Who needs normal hours?
Bluemoon is one our favorite apps to use personally around Blueshift. Helping Alex isn’t my only job and I have my own small business and side projects. When it comes to tracking all of the events and occurrences for those other areas of my life, Bluemoon rocks and now even more.
The updates added for the new release focus integration and ease of use. First, and most importantly, the events created in Bluemoon can now be put on your calendar and you can set up notifications for yourself! Second, there is the most requested new auto save feature that auto saves events once they have been created, which prevents data loss in case of app crashing or accidental shut-off.
Beyond those updates we did some minor bug fixes and other little things that weren’t causing the apps to run at the level which we want.
Ohhhhhh and if you want to try it out we have a FREE version. It is all the same, but just with ads. If you do like it, but hate the ads there is an option to purchase the upgrade within the app!
If you didn’t notice, we did some work on the website. Making these changes needed to happen. We feel a better looking site helps treat your eyes when you stop on by to check out the website and offer us your feedback and check out our apps.
With the new site you will also be seeing a lot more of the polls in the sidebar, like the one on the “fabricstash” page. Lately we have been getting a bunch of emails and I will be incorporating the suggestions into the polls. Along with the polls be on the lookout for new website features to make things even better around here.
We really hope the newer feel of the website and the features will make your experience with us better.
P.S We are so close to releasing the latest FabricStash update. Even if you don’t use that app, some of the awesome features that we are integrating there will soon be found in the other apps.
In the course of making our sewing and quilting iPhone apps better we are always making updates. The next one is exciting for us and it should be for you.
We understand that the data people put in on their fabric stash is important and at times lengthy. So, we did something that you might like. There is going to be in the next update backup feature. A lot of people have been asking for it and we finally did it. We have spent quite a bit of time testing it and making sure it is working correct and won’t falter.
The update also includes some minor bug fixes as well as some cosmetic updates and some other fun new features you will love. As always, if you want to see something, jump to the feature request page and let us know!
Look for the update in a few weeks.
Anyone who is familiar with our products should also be used to our updates including features you have requested. We love to update our apps with all the little details you want, because in the end you know what the app needs. Continuing in this we are going to implement a new system for deciding what features we add.
The new system is going to be based around you guys/gals submitting ideas and then letting people vote on them. What we need then is for you to start shooting ideas our way and we will get that voting system in the works.
