I’ve now updated my remaining four apps, which can all be installed from Google Play, Amazon Appstore and Chrome Web Store, depending on your preferred platform.

“EG: How Do You Do This in SAS?” looks at writing and running SAS programs using Enterprise Guide. This paid-for app has had some of the answer text updated, including a link to this blog.

“Macros: How Do You Do This in SAS?” looks at SAS macros. This paid-for app has had some of the answer text updated, including a link to this blog.

“Platforms: How Do You Do This in SAS?” looks at SAS platform-dependencies on Windows, UNIX, Linux and z/OS. This paid-for app has had some of the answer text updated, including a link to this blog.

“Graphs: How Do You Do This in SAS?” looks at generating graphs using classic SAS/GRAPH and the new ODS Graphics. This paid-for app now includes information about how to annotate stacked bar charts in ODS Graphics.

The latest versions of all the apps can be found here.

The apps “Data Steps: How Do You Do This in SAS?” and “SQL: How Do You Do This in SAS?” have recently been updated.

I think I’ve now worked out the difference between blogs and forums!  I’m a little bit of a newbie to blogs, so please excuse my naivety. I’d been treating my blog posts as if they were forum discussions, with every comment being highlighted by the WordPress platform, but they are not really like that at all. Therefore, from now on, rather than posting comments to tell you about any app and product updates, you’ll be receiving a new blog post, and this is just such a post!

My apps are all related to each other, with the same basic underlying software, but just with different data in each one. In fact even that is not quite true, as some question topics in my apps are relevant to more than one app, so any topic updates generate new app versions for one or more apps. I use an Enterprise Guide project to organise my questions and answers, and then generate the appropriate data structures, but with the same data, for the Google Play, Amazon Appstore and Chrome Web Store versions of each app, so when each topic changes all of the affected apps are updated together.

This time I’ve updated my apps for Data Steps and SQL, and the new versions are now live in the 3 app stores. I’m also experimenting with Windows 10 Universal Apps too, but don’t hold your breath, as I’m not quite ready to release any apps in the Windows 10 Store just yet.
