    "A decent app that does what it needs too, as of right now it's very unknown so I don't know much about it. It's brand new, so I can't say it's the best as nobody can vouch for that. It's worth checking out but I can't say it's anywhere near the top."

    "This free app helps you to create your own pattern for cross-stitching in a few seconds! Magic Needle is simple to use: • You just need to upload any image or photo • Choose the size of needlepoint you want to make, the brand of floss, and the number of colors you want to use. • Magic Needle makes a pattern and a summary page that has all the information about your project and materials you need: • Canvas type and size • Floss colors and numbers • Number of skeins of each color • Just get your materials and start embroidering. I've already created 2 pictures with this app and they look stunning !"

    "It's a fantastic app that lets you create patterns from pictures and then track your progress on them. I really love the PDF exporting, and it's by far the best pattern progress tracker I've seen. It may support all pattern features (for example, it doesn't support backstitching or partial stitches), but those it does have work flawlessly. The developer is also super friendly and willing to fix any issues you find."

    "This is a good solution. This is a perfect app for the cross stitch enthusiast except it has some flaws. They need to update it so you can edit and track your progress on your project. "
