I’ve withdrawn my apps from the Chrome Web Store after 9 years

Total views 503 

Regrettably I’ve withdrawn my apps from the Chrome Web Store after 9 years. For the last few years the Chrome Web Store has not been accepting new apps, only extensions, so I’ve not been able to add new apps, although updated apps have been accepted. However, recently my apps have been behaving differently, and only showing blank pages, so I’ve made the decision to withdraw my apps altogether.

There were 2 categories of apps in the Chrome Web Store:

  • SAS apps, which are still available in the Google Play Store and Amazon Appstore (for Android devices). You can also access them on any device with a Programming blog membership as a web app.
  • Educational apps, which are also available in the Google Play Store and Amazon Appstore (for Android devices). You can also access them on any device with an Educational Games blog membership, again as a web app.
  • SAS course eBook Web Apps have arrived on this Blog Site for Members

    In the past I have written ebook apps on SAS-related topics for webOS, Android and Chrome users, but not everyone has access to these app platforms. However, every member of this blog site, whatever platform they use, has access to a compatible browser for my new ebook web apps, which contain the same content as my previous apps, but run from links on this site.

    If you have logged onto the blog site as a Free member, then you will see a new “Informational eBook Web Apps about SAS-related Topics (for Free members)” in the Menu. This will take you to a blog forum landing page for the sample ebook web apps, which will demonstrate their functionality and show you sample topics from the other web apps, where there is a new link at the bottom of the page to the sample SAS course app. Alternatively go to the SAS Skills Discussion Forum:

    • SAS course: SAS Components ==> Sample topics from the other SAS course web apps.

    If you have logged onto the blog site as a Programming member, then you will see a new “Informational eBook Web Apps about SAS-related Topics” in the Menu instead. This will take you to a blog forum landing page for the full list of ebook web apps, where there is a new link at the bottom of the page to the new SAS course apps, with the following topic areas, as well as the sample app above. Alternatively go to the SAS Programming Forum:

    • SAS course: Data Step ==> SAS functionality relating to Data Steps.
    • SAS course: PROC SQL ==> SAS functionality relating to PROC SQL.
    • SAS course: SAS Macros ==> SAS functionality relating to macros.

    Note that these web apps can only be accessed from these blog forum landing pages, and you must be logged in with the appropriate membership level for that specific forum. Subscription details can be found here.

    New advice when registering as a blog member

    Total views 794 

    Remember to use your full personal name, not a business name (unless you’ve asked me first), and a full last name is expected and required to complete registration, not “X Y” where your user information is considered to be hiding your identity. If you supply a name like “X Y” then your profile will be set to Pending, which will be deleted automatically after 1 month if not corrected.

    NEW: An activation email will be sent to your registered email address to confirm that it is valid. If you do not receive it within a few minutes, then please contact Philip Holland at phil@hollandnumerics.org.uk, as your email address may not have been accepted, but can be corrected.

    It is also recommended that you do not use an email address as, or include your company name in, your user name, because user names cannot be changed, but your email address or company might change in the future!

    How would you like to be a VIEWS Consultant (unpaid) by writing a SAS-related article for VIEWS News?

    Total views 2,726 

    Having an article about SAS published in VIEWS News is the only qualification required to become a VIEWS Consultant, which is globally recognized, but is unpaid, like the Newsletter Editor!

    VIEWS News is now being published quarterly in February, May, August and November, and I am constantly looking for new SAS-related content and new contributors. Contributions should be short punchy articles about SAS-related topics, reviews of SAS-related conferences you have attended, or even advertising articles for future conferences. The choice is completely up to you, and my task, as Newsletter Editor, is to put together an issue with a range of articles that will be of interest to our global membership. Therefore, if you have an idea for something you’d like to contribute to the next, or future, issue of VIEWS News, then please contact me at views-uk@hollandnumerics.org.uk. I just need any articles for each issue before the 1st day of the publication month, so I can include it in the newsletter, and give you the opportunity to check that I’ve not changed anything important before the final published version is posted on the site.

    If you are thinking about contributing to VIEWS News, then I would recommend you register on this blog site and request access to VIEWS News, as you will need to log in to the blog site to get to the VIEWS UK forum, where VIEWS News lives, so you will have access to the past issues. As I write this post the blog members that have requested access to VIEWS News (total 116) are located in:

    • UK = 47
    • North America = 27
    • Indian Sub-continent = 23
    • Europe = 13
    • Rest of the World = 6

    Many of the blog members that have requested access to VIEWS News are already VIEWS Consultants, and more contributions are welcomed from them. However, I also encourage you to become a new VIEWS Consultant.

    Remember the deadline for articles in the August issue (VIEWS 57) is the 1st August!!
