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…

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

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.
