Google Chrome Apps End of life – RunSignUp Chrome Check-In App Phase Out Plan

Google recently announced that they “will be removing support for packaged and hosted apps from Chrome on Windows, Mac, and Linux.”

We will be removing the RunSignUp CheckIn Chrome App from the Chrome Store by the end of September, 2016. Note the web version of this app will continue to be available.

The new RaceDay Native App on Android and iOS remains our strategic direction and should be the preferred choice for customers wanting to do check-in with our technology.

Note the big feature the Chrome App had was printing. This means we will not be supporting printing in our Check-In apps. We have not seen a large interest from customers in this feature, and we have seen a lot of instability in supporting printing from the base technology of the operating systems for apps – for example the Chrome App.
