PDF Document Scanner for Windows 10 (the Windows Store edition of the app) has just been updated to v4.16.0, an update which brings a huge change to the app on the platform. Before now, PDF Document Scanner on Windows 10 was just a Hosted Web App wrapping the Ape Web Apps version of the app and allowing a few native features, such as physical scanner access. It mostly worked pretty good, but it did not mesh good with the operating system or look and feel like a native application. With this update, PDF Document Scanner is now its own full native application on Windows 10, which brings with it performance improvements, visual improvements, and (critically) the ability to work without an internet connection!

Big PDF Document Scanner Update for Windows 10
Print to an old Dot Matrix Printer from Windows, iOS, or Android
For several months, the Ape Apps Launcher for Windows has contained a setting called RAW/Text printing, which I have never bothered to explain to anybody. Today I have put together a video demonstration about what it is and how it works.
Basically, the RAW/Text printer option of the Ape Apps Launcher allows you to print to old (or new) impact or dot matrix type printers. It should also work for point of sale or receipt printers as well. Using the additional Resource Sharing option on the launcher, you can also print to these printers over WiFi using an Android or iOS device. It's just another neat little feature available in the launcher. Check out the above video for a full demonstration.
Ape Apps is on Patreon
Donation page. Because of this, I have now added a Patreon option, for those who are interested:
Anyway, as I mentioned, I'm not very familiar with Patreon yet, but if you have questions I will try to help as best I can! And thanks to all who support Ape Apps!
Epic Adventure Alpha Updated
I have done some more work on the Epic Adventure alpha, which is now at 0.2.0. There are a few more items you can craft, including an axe. Next I plan to add farm implements and basic farming. Once the code is far enough along that I am confident that new released will not render game saves invalid, I will enable game saving. Here is a quick video:
The alpha is live on the Web right now and should be on the Ape Apps Launcher some time tomorrow. As always, suggestions are welcome as to what direction I should take with this game!
The Alien Invasion Has Arrived!
Alien High is a brand new interactive story/RPG hybrid game from Ape Apps built off of the versatile Level Up engine. You are an ordinary student at Roy Munsion High School just minding your own business as usual, when suddenly an invasion of evil alien forces descends upon your school. The choices you make throughout the game will drive the course of the story line and change the direction of the game. No two play-throughs will be the same, and there are many different endings available for you to find, discover, and unlock.
