App runs great on my 5.

Feature suggestions? It would be neat to be able to click on a kit, then have the bushings "clickable" to find out if other kits use the same diameter bushings. I found myself with a couple of seam ripper kits, but didn't have the "official" bushings. I ended up using slightly larger bushings from a different kit.

Thanks for the awesome app though!!

Thanks Keith,
That's a good suggestion & I will add it to my list of possible enhancements.

One possibility here would be to make the 4 headings on the Detail Page clickable, then if you tapped on Upper/Cap Bushings for example, the app could automatically do a search for all kits that have identical Upper/Cap Bushings parameters.

You can actually do this manually at the present time. For instance, if you look up the Triton bushings, you will see that the Upper/Cap Bushings are 0.567, 0.460 and 0.567. If you simply enter 567 460 567 (or just 567 460 since two dimensions are the same) into the Search field, the app will display all kits that use that bushing size.

I can see where a single tap on the Detail Page would be a lot more convenient though.

You mentioned seam rippers - at the present time, there are no seam ripper kits in the app or the charts. For the most part, Wayne has limited the charts to pen kits thus far. In the case of a couple of suppliers who do not have very large pen kit selections, he has included a few "non-pen" kits (such as the Bracelet Helper in the Hut chart). If you would like to see the charts expanded to include other kits besides pens, please be sure to communicate these types of suggestions to Wayne.

Default A Minor Milestone

Exactly 200 copies of the app were downloaded in its first week on the Apple App Store.

I hope you are finding the app to be useful. Don't forget to post reviews if you do.

Keith's (DigBaddy72) suggestion for finding all kits with a particular bushing has been added to the app & will be in the next release - probably about mid-Jan.

Thanks a lot! If I had just RTFM I would have learned that search would have helped me, but hey, I'm in IT, we never RTFM untill we've exhausted all other options and wasted half a day searching and trial and error!

I look forward to the next release!

Installed on iPad, IOS 9.1. Works fine.
Bugs (I think): After initial splash screen, if you click on IAP logo (left upper corner), and then you click on a question mark on the right (for the help file) and the PDF opens there is no way to get back to the app, at least not on my iPad.

Right swipe

If you have zoomed the view, double tap anywhere to reset the view to normal size, then do a right swipe.

Thanks Tony,
Send a pm to Wayne with your info.
If it's just corrections, you can list them in the message.
There is a chart template at the same place as the chart PDFs that can be used to add kits & even new suppliers, then send that to Wayne.

Thumbs up

I just finished reorganizing all of my bushings this past weekend. I had realized that I had several bushings that would work with other kits without having to buy new bushings. I downloaded the app and it is awesome. It works fine on my I Phone 5. Thank you so much for all of your hard work.
