‎OMGoodness!!!  How very sweet of you!   I have an iPad, an Asus Nexus 7, and a PC, of course, and Firefox is the browser I use on PC and Android.  I can tell you that the video I tried on my BlackBerry Z10 smartphone played just fine with the native BlackBerry browser, too.  It is on WiFi at this time and playback was very smooth, even on a 4 and a half or so inch screen and auto rotation was flawless while it was playing. 

Very nice! Thank you!

Ok, well more like a new old product announcement!   Long time readers are no doubt familiar with (and perhaps sick of hearing about) our iPhone/iPad app My 15000. We have had many requests for a version that could be used on a PC or Android device, neither of which was something we were interested in doing. That said, we have reviewed the structure of the app and realized we could implement it as a web app to be viewed in a browser. Previously we sold DVDs for the 12000 that were viewed using a web browser, but after numerous compatibility issues we had to abandon that. I was very skeptical that a web version would work, but pressed on and discovered that it actually can work. So we made a web version.


Of course there are so many different devices, operating system s, and browsers that we could not possibly test them all. So we made the first 10 "quick start" videos completely free so you could find out whether you can use them on your particular device. All videos use the same player, so if it works you can be assured that you'll be able to purchase a membership for all of them. If the free videos don't work, please DO NOT purchase a membership, because the paid videos won't work either! We've tested on Windows 7, 8, and 10 with Internet Explorer 10 and higher, FireFox, and Chrome, all good. Windows XP won't work. Android on an Asus tablet and a Kindle Fire also work. All modern web browsers (say from the last 3 years) should work fine. The videos are HD, so if you are using a cellular connection you're going to burn through a lot of bandwidth, which could result in overage charges. We can't do anything about that, because right now only Apple supports the type of streaming that adjusts automatica lly to the bandwidth. That's what we use in the iTunes apps.


Permanent access to the web app costs $59.99 USD, the same price as the apps. All of the same features are included, and we can (and will) update the videos as needed. If you have a 15000, but do not have our app, we invite you to check out My 15000 Online. Thanks!

Just thinking - if you are able to give iPad users free access to the online version, does that mean it would also give free access to the iPad App for those that have bought online? 

If so then I for one would be able to use it both online and on my Apple TV4 (though haven't bought the app yet for that, so will be buying the online version as I can take that away with me and review away from home if I want).

Attempting to clarify, Jim says:
The iPad app includes the Apple TV4 app (and vice-versa), but there is NO relationship between the online app and the Apple apps. Purchasing the online app will allow you to view the videos on an iPad or iPhone using the embedded Safari browser, but not on the Apple TV because it does not have web access. As mentioned in a prior response to another post, it is possible to use AirPlay on the iPhone/iPad to display on a PC with the AirServer software. You can also use AirPlay to view on the Apple TV (V2-4) without the Apple TV4 app.

There are definite advantages to using the app on an iPhone or iPad:
* If using a cellular data connection, video quality will adjust to the available bandwidth for the best viewing experience. We cannot do this in the online version, as no browser supports it.

* Design files downloaded in the app can be opened directly in AcuEdit or AcuDesign for instant availability. This is not possible in the online version.

* Access through the app is much faster, because there is no delay for the browser to load and pages to render.

Will the 12000 version be forthcoming? I'll definitely be onboard for that even though I have the IPad app, and your CD's. I have a new all-in-one with HD and the videos are more amazing than on my IPad mini.


Also, will a subscription be able to be used on a PC and an Android device for the same subscription?


Here's hoping for the quick release of  My 12000 :)


Attempting to be forthcoming, Jim says:

Now that we have gone through the development, yes the 12000 can (and probably will) be made available online. A single online subscription can be viewed on anything with a web browser, so PC and Android is definitely an option. However there is absolutely no way to extend the iPad app or CDs to include access to the online version. The online version is managed by a completely different company.


If you already have the iPad app you can get a Windows program that will allow the iPad videos to be displayed on your PC screen. Check out AirServer for more details. There is a free trial for 7 days and after that the $15 charge would be much less than buying online access. Another benefit of this - you don't have to wait for us to make the online version!

Jim and Diane,

Thank you for making your apps available online!  Just in time to help me with my purchase of the 14000!  Thanks again!

Jim and Diane

Thankyou Thankyou Thankyou!   It all works for me on Windows 10 and Firefox - so I'm a really happy bunny!  The borrowed iPad will be going back to my step-son (haven't even looked at it yet and he lent it me at New Year!)

I'm a definite customer and will be purchasing soon - I'm sure there will be lots of others interested!  Yet to try it on my husbands Lenovo tablet.

One thing though - it wasn't obvious to me that you had to click on one of the videos that wasn't in the quick start section in order to get to the purchase screen.  I was expecting to find a button
​ to pay - but at least I've now found out how to do it! :0)

 Being no-so-obvious, Jim says:
I'm working on the possibility of adding a purchase button to the menu bar. Unfortunately web software is much less flexible than apps, so it may take a bit.

If we have the Apple App and would like the PC App also do we have to purchase it separately?

At the moment I don't have a way to grant free access to the online app for iPad app users. I'll think about it and see if I can come up with something.


Re: New product announcement

Beth, I too use the iPad to view my apps... but the fact that Jim developed this for the non iPad users shows how much they listen to the needs of all the Janome owners and care about them.

You and I both know for sure how much this will mean to the Android and PC owners to have this available.  I have had my 15000 for two years and from time to time will still refer back to a section that I do not use often.

Re: Is there a 17000 on the horizon?

Sandra Williamson
 

My dealer sells both ELNA & Janome & when I was interested in quilting machine, he sold me an Elna but when my interest changed to embroidery machine, he said it was only going to be the 15000! I've learned he never gives me bad info.
I've never heard of a 14000! My 15000 is superb though.


Re: Software

Beth
 

When I did Acufil before I printed out a "template" on a product called Template Magic which is a sticky product that when removed from backing paper can be reused MULTIPLE times.  It was great for the quilting.  I print templates from HL on plain paper to assist in embroidery previewing where I want to place the embroidery.


Re: Is there a 17000 on the horizon?

blue_lak <no_reply@...>
 

Yes, they do, up to a point. The problem arises when you've had a quilt folded for a while. Those channels can stand out when they're oriented with the direction of the quilt on a bed or hanging, especially if someone is the least bit off in hooping the next area to match the template, if the quilt is hooped too loosely, etc. And it's more pronounced with thicker battings.

Another Question From Braid Dead Me :)

Meryl Margolies
 

I know there were instructions posted on how to tell the hours a 12000 has sewn. Can those be re-posted or must I be committed?


Thanks.


Reluctantly calling the white coat brigade, Jim says:

The posted instructions pertain to the 15000. There is no hourly meter on the 12000. For those who are about to ask where it is on the 15000, it's on the page that comes up when you press the question mark key.

My time ratio between the machine being on versus the actual stitching time really took a big hit once I started doing some Judy Niemeyer paper piecing projects! Lots of paper piecing in the projects I was doing.

Re: Repairs on Janome machines

You are absolutely right about the difference between long time sewers and newbies. I have noticed that many newbies don't read the book, either. I have sewn for 60 years, and I marvel at these new machines. Love, love, love them. I remember countless problems on previous machines!
