If you are still not convinced, "StitchBuddy View" offers the opportunity to evaluate StitchBuddy on iPad for free.

NOTE: StitchBuddy HD can *not* transfer designs directly to your embroidery machine! You need to send the design to your computer first, either by iTunes File Sharing or by email, and transfer it in the usual way.

*) Printing on laser printers is reported to be slow (due to the transferred data volume).
