Most Apple user groups published newsletters; some of these gained fame outside their local area. The best known of these were probably Call-A.P.P.L.E. (published by the Apple Puget Sound Program Library Exchange, A.P.P.L.E., in Seattle), the Washington Apple Pi Journal (published by Washington Apple Pi in Washington, DC). The Washington Apple Pi is still in operation and still publishing (though the focus is now on the Macintosh); A.P.P.L.E. ceased publication of Call-A.P.P.L.E. in 1990, printing the Co-Op Spirit for 3 years and restarting publication of Call-A.P.P.L.E. as an E-Zine in 2002.
Juiced.GS is still in print today, and is the only remaining print publication dedicated to the Apple II computer.
