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.
I love this app, but it’s almost obsolete. There are so many colors missing that I just make a handwritten list now of what I’m shopping for.
If they aren’t going to update the color list, at least give me the option to add items not on the list
This app has outlived its usage. It’s really unfortunate that this is still a paid app. There’s no features at all, no ability to give feedback to the developers or report a problem. There are multiple errors in DMC code versus color. No way to add Ecru or White to your thread tracking. Not only does it not include any variegated or other types of DMC thread, it can’t keep the regular DMC colors straight. I’m guessing this is because it hasn’t been updated in two years.
3865 own 3 not in list 371 not working properly Need to be able to differentiate between having some on bobbins and others on skeins, also need to buy but have some Need to be able to add new colors
Hasn’t been updated in forever.
It’s a good app but I just wish it had the new colors. It really needs to be updated. Also it would be nice if we can make project lists so I know which colors I need to pick up for each project. Other then that it’s a great idea.
Simple app, works well. A few suggestions for the developer: (1) Add the new 2019 colors (01-35) (2) Add a category for colors that you have in backstock (3) Maybe add a function so that users can add colors so the developers don’t need to update when DMC adds new things, specialty flosses (like étoile colors)
It’s a decent app, from what I’ve seen it has every #, but the “own/don’t own” sort buttons don’t work
I love the app for what it is but it has some shortcomings, most notably how out of date the thread list is. I understand keeping up with the color changes is a time intensive process but still, that’s kind of what we’re paying for. Alternatively, if we could enter our own thread colors that would be good enough, but you only get what’s in the app. When it goes over a year without an update, there’s a lot of thread I have that I can’t track.
I’ve found this tracker extremely useful in tracking the threads that I have in my DMC collection. However, it hasn’t been updated in a year, so it is not showing the current complete set of DMC threads available. Since I maintain a full set, it needs to be updated to continue to be as useful in the future.
