    There will now be apps made with Xojo in the Windows Store. If you'd like, take a moment to share your Xojo-made apps in this thread. Be sure to include links so that people can check them out.

    (post inspired by the one by Paul Lefebvre "Xojo Apps in the Mac App Store" that started the thread in the OS X channel)

    Any font contains thousands of characters, easy to find and use with Char Menu. Click the little grey box in the corner of the screen or press Ctrl-Option, and a window pops up with over 300 Unicode pages at your disposal to pick from, at a size sufficient to really see how they look.

    Click on any character, and it is sent to the current application like if it was typed on the keyboard. At the same time, it is copied to the clipboard.

    Check Print'R

    Check Print'R is a simple to use program that lets you write and print checks directly from your desk. Simply enter the name of the payee (made order to), the numeric amount, and voila! The spelled out amount is automatically generated. No need to write out complicated sentences.

    The check is printed with at the bottom special MICR characters which will be used by banks for processing. So now your printed check can be used the same way as a pre-printed check.

    Check Writer III

    Check Writer III is a simple to use program that lets you write and print checks directly from your desk, together with their accompanying letter.

    Same project file as Check Print'R. The word processing part is a Formatted Text Control.


    Both Check Print'R and Check Writer III are also popular apps in the Mac App Store.

    Well Injection Estimator is a program which determines the theoretical injection rate of an Injection Well in the oilfield. This program allows 'What-if' questions to be asked such as:

    1. How much fluid can be injected if more perforations are added?
    2. 'What if' the Maximum Operating Pressure (MOP) were increased by 500 psi, then how much additional fluid can I inject?
    3. Will more viscous fluids change the injection rate? By how much?
    4. ... and more


    Different field units can also be used, as many countries use a blend of both Metric and Imperial units. A Screen Grab can be taken and saved on your computer as a PNG file that can be printed or used in reports.

    Although this program is not a substitute for professionals with many years of experience, this quick and easy estimator provides another data point to be considered.

  8. Hi

    I was looking at the windows store Apps today, my first impression was that the store is not so up to date.. old apps.. , not always professional..

    So I'm asking myself, is the Win App Store also an way to go ? is this profitable ? (because recently you can 'migrate' you win32 app to the App Store..) , I have a little app written in Xojo , but I'm confused about windows store.. maybe its better to sell not in the store but sell it by google adv, Facebook...

    Any suggestions ?

    @Peter V Any suggestions ?

    Create a new thread for this question. This thread is for people to list the apps they have in the Windows App Store.
