Shutting down Tech Comm on a Map
Hallo folks, I’ve decided to take down Tech Comm on a Map—this means I’ll remove the web page and unpublish the Android app. The web page will remain available until the end of November, to give people time to fix up any pages that are using it. The Android app will remain installed on your device if you’ve previously installed it, but it won’t be available for new installations.
Why am I taking them down? I don’t have bandwidth to look after them any more. The web app is suffering from a technical problem that I can’t fix, despite quite a bit of effort. On the Android side, I don’t currently use Android technology, and it therefore takes quite a bit of effort to get back into the swing of things each time I need to make a change to the app.
The usage stats for the apps are reasonable, but not huge. The web page gets a max of 50 visitors per day, measured over the last 6 months. There are 27 active installations of the Android app.
Thank you to everyone who has contributed data and code to this project! It’s been a rewarding experience developing the apps and working with contributors to the code and the data.
If my taking down the apps will cause you any trouble, please do let me know.
