— Issue #72

Feedback tip

If you’re building a Chrome Extension, there’s a feature that not too many people know about that was introduced in Chrome 41, which allows you to set a URL that will be opened in a tab when users uninstall your extension. We’ve been using this in CrankWheel to show a very simple one-question survey (essentially, “how could we have served you better”), and it captures a lot of really useful feedback as well as occasionally alerting us to problems.

Discounts for our Audience

Use coupon code SuR_Premium over at Logojoy to get 15% off a premium logo. I’ve been playing around with their editor, and it’s the best one I’ve tried so far. Lots of the automated suggestions are good, and then it lets you go quite far in customizing your logo. I’m about to order a logo there for a company I run with my spouse.

That’s it for this issue

Thanks for reading! I’ll be going back now to creating walkthrough videos of how to add CrankWheel to various CMSs and website builders. This was one of the most obvious needs that became apparent from doing the Appsumo launch so we’re doing a bunch of these this week and next. I find that a decent video is much less work to create than a decent written guide with screenshots, so that’s where I’m spending my time initially.


If you do software demos, or you have a need to show your customer work in progress, I’d recommend taking advantage of the $39 lifetime membership Appsumo deal for CrankWheel before it’s too late. At the time of writing it’s still available.
