I suggest you ...

Windows App

I would like to vote for resuming support for Windows devices. Squid is a great app for recording tutorial videos with a pen (just enough features, responsive, and easy to use). I realize that you have limited resources, but I wanted to put the vote out there.

    We don’t disagree that there is a market for a cross-platform handwritten note taking app! We would love for Squid to be available on all platforms. We’re a small team and we don’t currently have the resources to expand to Windows (or iOS). We hope this will change someday!

        Honestly... I just installed Penbook for my Surface Pro.. After looking around for a substitution, that was the closest thing I could find. For my SquidNotes, I decided to export all as a .pdf, then import into Penbook. Penbook was $9.99 today.

        Any hope of Windows integration being allowed as an open-source project? I see it is still in the Windows store, but we need a code to Redeem it... what's the story with that?

        Dear "Squid" Creators. You always can share your Windows app as "Open source" project, and all people from different places of the world will help to your app. Many programmers have Android mobiles and make Notes on them. Also they have home PCs or tablets, where very comfortable to watch this notes. I guess that this people will help you with much pleasure =)

        I cannot reinstall the app on Windows 8.1 phone after hard reset. It's a pity as Squid is a great app. Find a way for similar user as me to reinstall.

        I would love to see this happen as an Android/ChromeOS/Surcface Pro user.

        I'd like to add another vote for resuming windows 10 support. Even if it's just keeping the version that they had previously without adding any new bells and whistles.

        what if i could give you the funding you need? i'm looking to invest in your app and future development, you have my email

        Not being able to port to Windows due to lack of resources is one thing, taking away perfectly working app is another. My old Vivotab Note 8 has old version of Squid installed and working perfectly on Windows 10 but you can't make that version available for download anymore? I call shenanigans.

        I LOVE running squid on my Note Pro 12.2 tablet however, Samsung is no longer developing the O.S. for this device (Android 5.1). I am starting to have compatability issues with MS office documents on this older machine....considering Windows 10 Galaxybook 2 but MUST HAVE SQUIDNOTES!!!! I have been an evernote user for years but it does not come close to squid functionality. PLEASE ADDRESS THIS as many users will be forced off of the application over time....

        I vote to add this to windows 10 please. I love my android version and would like this app for my Lenovo C930 Yoga Book. Thank you!

        Expand to Windows? What do you mean? You already had a perfectly fine windows version. Frankly, I am a bit upset that it was apparently discontinued - and even without notice, as far as I can tell. This is very unfortunate, as I had still been using the app regularly without realizing that the Dropbox export had stopped working. So now my recent notes are basically stuck in the app. Not cool!

      • Daniel K commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I did not realize until yesterday that the Windows version is no longer supported. Needless to say, I am not very happy about this. I'm fine with not getting regular updates. I understand that the resources for development are limited. But at least the basic functionality such as Cloud Backup - a extra service I paid for - should be maintained.

        Yes, I love Squid on my Note 10.1, and I want to upgrade to a 2-in-1 with Windows 10. I almost considered getting a Chromebook Tablet instead, just so I can run Squid. But there are other advantages for my work that I'd rather go Windows 10. Heck, I'd even pay for it separately, as long as I could sync my old notes, and buy it outright. I hate subscriptions, which is why I don't overpay and get Evernote.

        I asked about this almost a year ago. Unfortunately, they have no plans to bring it to Windows 10. Unless they have changed course. I still have not found a solution for windows 10 that works as seamless as Squid did for me when I was using an Android tablet. I just let my premium subscription run out since I no longer use an Android Tablet. :-(

        Maybe one day they will figure out the market that there is for this to work across platforms to Windows. Many people would love this.
