Update on FB – website link and Volume 4 App Inventor Guide
Facebook – Web site link
Short update – my web site at http://appinventor.pevest.com was linked directly to FB so that comments entered here, appeared there, and comments entered on the web site, appeared here on Facebook. All automatically.
However, that link is now broken. I was using a WordPress plugin to cross link the web site and FB page but last week, the makers of the plugin discontinued its use and the cross linking is no longer working. Hopefully I can find a new plugin to perform that function!
It was a nice to have feature as I could just check for updates on the web site without having to also check on FB. Oops! Now that this feature is gone, I will try to check the FB page more frequently.
Volume 4 Update
Volume 4 of my App Inventor guides is nearing completion. I have to write one last demo program, the text for one chapter, proof read the entire text, and begin the publishing process. I will announce the book topic once I get the final chapter written (I prefer not to pre-announce until I know the availability). I can announce now that Volume 4 should be available in both print and e-book formats! Producing the print version adds a little delay to the final release but the final result should be very good.
UPDATE: Sales of the print version of Volume 4 are being discontinued as of October 18, 2016, due to rampant copyright theft. There are more used copies for sale than the total number of printed books actually sold. Based on sales, readers prefer the e-book version – therefore I am in process of discontinuing sales of the print version. The e-book continues to be available.
