August 15, 2013

The new policies, detailed on Apple’s developer portal, limits the collection of personal data when it comes to apps for kids and young children without parental agreement.

App downloads to surge to 160 billion by 2017, but here’s the catch for developers…

July 3, 2013

The report, which is entitled Future App Stores: Discovery, Monetisation & Ecosystem Analysis 2013-2018, states that games will account for 40% of all downloads by 2017 and expects this trend to see app stores improve “stickiness” by developing social functions for gameplay.

If that is good news for gaming app developers however, non-gaming folk will be alarmed to read that Juniper Research expects most downloads to be for free apps in four years’ time.

Indeed, the researcher claims that just 5% of consumers will pay for smartphone and tablet apps, which is even less than the 6.1% of consumers who profess to do so in 2013.

ShowYou offers new ways to make money from video on the iPad

June 6, 2013

Video discovery app ShowYou is now offering content creators a way to more easily monetize their video streams within their apps.

Instead of a bunch of videos you like that people can view individually,  everything you share is now part of a channel that ShowYou users can sit back and enjoy like a television network.

The company is also launching the ShowYou Channel Platform, which lets anyone monetize channels made up of their own content. ShowYou is offering its platform as a software-as-a-service, so you’ll pay a monthly fee as well as additional fees depending on viewer numbers.

That's different than the revenue-share model of [...]
