Default Block Tool App alternative?

I loved using the Block Tool app on my iPhone. It was so helpful and handy, listing over 100 of the most common blocks, several different sizes, with cutting and construction directions. Mine said it needed to be updated. Went to the App Store and it said the author hadnít updated it and it would no longer work with current Apple software. I canít find a replacement and Iím wondering if anyone has suggestions for a similar app? Thanks for any leads or suggestions!

I use BlockFab App on my IPAD and don't have a problem with it. I don't think there are 100 blocks, tho. I use mainly for block measurement and resizing, and fabric quantities. Even tho it gives you cutting directions, I typically cut using other methods I've learned. That stinks that your APP doesn't work anymore.

Well I was hoping someone had discovered something I missed in my App search-It says to contact the app creator to ask for an update, but it doesn’t allow you to access the app’s information to do that. Will try other avenues, sure did like this App! Here is a link to the description, evidently it still works with Androids, but not iOS 11 on iPhones and iPads.

I just checked and it no,longer works on my iPad either. It won’t work iOS11. I,liked the app but I guess the person who developed it doesn’t know or doesn’t care thst it won’t work with upgraded Apple products.
