It’s with a heavy heart that I have to announce today, May 5th we have stopped selling SignMyPad for Windows.
SignMyPad Windows was a gamble for us. When the Surface was announced, know one knew if the device would be a success or failure. Microsoft had so much riding on Windows 8 and their devices. Microsoft even contacted us to develop SignMyPad for the Surface and helped up (to a point) to get it built. Once SignMyPad was released is when the problems started. First Microsoft updated from Windows 8 to 8.1 which broke so many things in SignMyPad. Our backend was developed to grow, and Microsoft stripped away so many functions. Then Microsoft released the Surface 2, which despite having the same screen size and resolution as the original caused issues where elements would shift on the page. We went ahead and fixed that, only for Microsoft to release the Surface 3 causing the same issue again! Microsoft recently announced Windows 10 as well, meaning we would have to re-write the entire app again.
The sales for the Windows version of SignMyPad weren’t enough to warrant doing anymore updates, and so it was decided for now that we would halt production and sales of the Windows version. We, as a company, do not want to put out apps that don’t function well. We, as a company, do not want to see our users have issues. We, as a company, want to see SignMyPad flourish the way we envisioned it to and unfortunately that means discontinuing SignMyPad for Windows.
At this time, we have removed SignMyPad from the store listing. If you already own SignMyPad you can continue to use it and if you get a new device you will be able to redownload it. New users will not be able to access SignMyPad to download. Support for SignMyPad for Windows is also depreciating as many of the issues are just things out of our control right now.
We apologize to the Windows users, and that part of the SignMyPad community.
