Apple allows in-app tipping for content creators

14 June 2017

Not all developers out there want your birth certificate and bathing schedule, but enough have proven themselves less than scrupulous over the years, so anything Apple and Google do to help users limit data collection and location tracking is always welcome.

In an effort to make iPads better at productivity, iOS 11 features a multitasking-friendly dock from which apps can be pulled straight up into a split-screen interface.

The information regarding the great Pepe comes in by publication site Motherboard. I'm equally certain that the app in question will be rapidly removed from the store, along with the developer's account.

- App Store customer reviews can be an integral part of the app experience, so you should treat customers with respect when responding to their comments. There are no apps in the App Store with Pepe in the title, and it does not appear in many meme apps and iMessage sticker packs (there are no Pepes in "MemeStickers", for instance). The app is essentially Finder for the iPad but features several improvements that not even the Mac now has.

On the plus side for developers, using Apple's official interface for reviews also may increase the response rate because the review prompt allows the user to leave a review without leaving the app.

Three-part Life is unusual prequel confirmed
We'll have more details on this game in the months ahead - but, man, it's great to have Life Is Strange back. Life is Strange: Before the Storm will serve as a prequel, similarly starring Chloe and Rachel.

"Alt-right" hate mascot Pepe The Frog may be dead, but as everyone surely predicted, that hasn't stopped the more despicable corners of the internet from continuing to worship the cartoon at their craven altars.

According to the above, Pepe's presence is now deemed as "offensive", "insensitive", "upsetting", "intended to disgust", and is "exceptionally poor taste". But when we tried to release to the App Store, we got hit with "Your app contains images and references of Pepe the Frog, which are considered objectionable content".

"Update: This post has been updated to note that games have been rejected for using Pepe in the past". Chinese livestreaming video apps, including Yizhibo and Yinke, have heavily used the feature to allow users to send virtual gifts to performers.

I know some may say "get over it! Anyway, those Pepe games are crap!" Now it categorizes games and apps into their own sections. According to a blogger on Medium website, scammers have now chosen smartphone application stores to target users by fraudulently making you pay money.

This upcoming feature actually made me think about all the apps I have on my phone, and go through what's there and find out what I actually don't use anymore.
