As a side project, I have almost finished building a Product Hunt client for Windows Store.
Hopefully the first beta submission gets through store approval in the next day or so, then I can start closed testing.
Further; I’ve applied to Product Hunt to see If they’ll permit me to get write access also to their API so the app can up-vote, comment and maybe even post. (Normally their API is read-only, but as they don’t have an official Windows Store app maybe they’ll make an exception??? Win-win)
July 2017, and Simple PoS for Windows 10 has been released!
Valley Software are very excited to see our latest and most ambitious project to date released into the wild. Simple PoS is now active and available in the Store for Windows 10 Devices.
We’re scaling up slowly, with this first “soft” release and no advertising for a couple of weeks.
But we do have a secret: from now until the end of August it is discounted by 50% off all subscriptions! So there is never been a better time to take a no-obligation, no-signup free trial of Simple PoS.
Voyer is back in the Windows 10 store for PC, Mobile, XBOne and Holo after more than a weeks absence.
If you have been having issues getting Voyer, that’s because it got pulled pending a re-assessment due to 4chan’s content, which Voyer consumes.
Voyer was completely removed from discovery, download, upgrade and donation. We have now come to an agreement which has allowed Voyer to be re-instated.
This further prevented me from posting AppRaisin, as it links to the store page which was revoked, so I’m sorry I couldn’t update you earlier there.
This new version, (.22) also has a few tweaks directly from your feedback and requests! Including setting a default startup board and bug fixes around the save button and stability.
Thank you for your ongoing support,
I have a less happy post today. Sadly Voyer has (hopefully temporarily) run afoul of the Windows App Store approval process.
It happened following my latest update; which none of you will have seen yet due to this issue, last week. I presume it was caused by that and not a complaint but am not sure either way.
The disagreement is over 4chans content, which is admittedly not for everyone to say the least. It is a particular community with its own lexicon, values (so to speak) and style.
And to be clear; Valley Software take no responsibility or accountability for that content or how wonderful or offensive it may be. It’s content and it isn’t ours.
My purpose with Voyer is merely to assist with making the freedom the internet provides accessible. There will be good and bad, as indeed there is in all areas of society.
We have had issues in the past with the App Store certification process regarding this, but we have always found a middle ground. The default “Safe-Ish” mode in Voyer along with it’s adult rating in store as just two examples. Also these past incidents have only ever applied to preventing updates from going through approval while leaving the previous version app available.
In this case though, Voyer has been completely removed from store. This prevents download, upgrade, feedback submission and donations along with visibility of the store listing itself.
I am attempting to remedy this with the certification team but I have not received any response yet to my multiple enquiries.
I have faith that we will come to an agreement again and return Voyer to store but I cannot say when that could be.
I apologise for any inconvenience and I will continue working on this restoration; Voyer has built a large and passionate following.
