ATTENTION TO THE FINE PRINT – IMPLEMENTING APP TOS AND PRIVACY POLICIES

Scott Smedresman of McCarter and English talked the audience through the ins and outs of app terms of service and privacy policies: what users expect, the best policy for your app, how to avoid being sued, and more.

WHAT THE TOP 50 GAMES DO WITH IN-APP PURCHASING THAT THE REST OF US DON'T

The final speaker of the night was keynote David Isbitski, from the Amazon Appstore. Pens and typing fingers began flying as soon as he started speaking. Isbitski's presentation was overflowing with current stats and information relevant to developers. One key takeaway was, "Apps with tutorials have a 2.5 times higher conversion rate."


STARTUP DEMO: AUDIOMACK

One of our favorite additions to our workshops this year was the opportunity to highlight local startups. David Ponte, co-founder of Audiomack-an app where artists can share their music with fellow artists, record labels, and fans-thoroughly engaged the audience in a succinct presentation on what success means to them, and how they reached the 6 million users they have today.

STARTUP DEMO: CLEARLOGIN

Our second startup demo of the evening was presented by Chad Hensler of Clearlogin. Hensler shared stats on password security and the efficiency of an instant end-user dashboard. This is important because companies use on average 168 cloud services, the average employee uses 28 cloud services, but 75% use no more than 5 different passwords-a major security issue that Clearlogin addresses.


WHAT SPELLS SUCCESS ON THE AMAZON APPSTORE?

Dave Isbitski of Amazon provided some killer industry insight at our recent App Strategy Workshop in New York, NY. We asked Dave if he could provide us with some general marketplace tips for developers, as well as some enterprise-specific tips.
