Thread Tracker 117 App Description & Overview
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.

Love the app but...
By Best app on my phone!
I would love to be able to add all the dmc colors I have that are not in the list.
Not as great as it needs to be
It takes a bit of time to log all the colors I have, but if I update the software, everything gets wiped. Next time I need to shop I might as well take inventory the old fashioned way as relogging would take twice as long.
I have a mess of floss for all my cross stitching, but when I discovered X - Stitcher and XStitch both require iOS 7 or higher I was afraid I wouldn't find an inventory list. WRONG! This one works great on my iPod touch 4, it has all the colors right up till 2013. It lets you list not just if you have it, but how many, if you have it loose, wound on a bobbin, or if you need more. I will NEVER go thread shopping with a big long paper list or come home with colors I had but didn't realize again!

The best thing about this app is the ability to sync the app between devices. I had just loaded all my threads on my iPad and then realized I didn't know if the data would transfer to my phone for shopping. It was easy to sync! I do wish there was a help page, but it is pretty easy to figure out.
This is a wonderful app. I do a lot of cross stitching and I own quite a bit of thread throughout the whole color range. There are colors missing, though and having those added or having the ability to add them ourselves would make this the perfect thread companion.
The ability to be able to print a list of threads not owned would be awesome, too. This way I can give my family a list and they can go buy it!! 😉

I just paid for this app on my phone and again to have it on my iPad. What a waste- I don't see how I can print my shopping list. The bigger problem is that the developer thinks that syncing is overwriting. I just lost the work I did on my phone when I tried to sync it and the blank inventory of the iPad erased all my work.
How do I get my money back for the two apps?
I love this app! Once I figured out how to get my shopping list, I was thrilled!! Please continue to update with the newest threads. Thank you!!
Should also include...
Wish this included the metallic/light/jewel effect threads!
Handy App BUT...
Really handy to have when shopping for floss, BUT
- there are missing numbers so there should be a way to include them all or add them ourselves by having blank spots. Should include metallics and ALL variegated including the 4000 series. (103 is missing and it is one of my favorites.)
- shopping list would be quite handy as opposed to going through the whole list to find the ones I marked as "need to buy."
- should be an easier way to go from lower numbers to high ones. Maybe a subdivision of threads by 100?
- how about a project list? Could include name of project and list of what is needed for it, even include a space for linen requirements. (thread count and color and size.)
Very useful, missing threads.
A great idea and very helpful. I have no issues with crashing anymore. No metallic or linen thread listed. Would be nice if there was a spot for shopping lists and project thread listings.
Handy app but needs to include all threads
I bought this for DMC threads. I like the app a lot, as it's helpful in keeping track of the threads I have, what I don't have and what is on my shopping list. My only criticism is that it doesn't cover the metallic threads. Please add this feature to the app. Otherwise, well worth having.
Just finished adding all my floss. Need to have the 4000 series added. Maybe add some blank spots where we can add new or retired thread colors. Love the idea of having this with me when I shop. Also good for starting a new project to see what colors are needed. Wish there was an app for DMC pearl cottons actually need one for all DMC fibers!
