Re: iPad stitch file display

Jim Stutsman

Mattes, author of StitchBuddy, follows this list so I'm sure he will jump in. The basic problem is that within an iOS app the developer can specify a specific file type and provide an icon for that type. However a subsequent app can also do the same thing for the same type. Whichever one is installed last wins. This is the same situation that happens on Windows, but Apple does not give you the ability to specify which app will have the privilege of being the icon provider. You might be tempted to remove an app, then reinstall it to make it the latest. However there is a danger with this, because removing an app also removes all of its data files, be they on the iPad or iCloud. Don't remove an app until you have backed up all the files you want to keep.
