[prMac.com] Girona, Spain - Estudi Kalimba is the newest participant of the Moms with Apps Know What's Inside(R) program, a part of ACT | The App Association. This program is dedicated to helping family-friendly app developers implement best practices around privacy and comply with new privacy rules including the new COPPA rules that took effect July 1st. The program provides developers with guidance on best practices, but requires each developer to implement those best practices in order to display the Know What's Inside(R) seal on their apps. Estudi Kalimba is also the newest member of the ACT | The App Association and Moms with Apps.
Vilma, Estudi Kalimba play designer, says, "I'm proud to be a member of ACT and Moms with Apps. I look forward to working together with ACT, MWA and other developers to bring forward transparent and beneficial apps into the hands of consumers. My apps include "Dic-Dic. Multilingual Dictation" and "Matching! My First Brain Training" which you can find on the iTunes store."
Member developers pledge to follow all applicable laws, including the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA), which went into effect on Monday, July 1, 2013. Members feature up-to-date privacy policies and disclosures within the app stores, benefiting both developers and the children we serve by offering a central location for the community to find and promote apps that respect online privacy.
"Our community of developers are creating transformational apps that are improving the educational lives of children around the world," said Morgan Reed, executive director of the ACT | The App Association. "These developers are committed to maintaining trusted relationships with parents. Through the Know What's Inside(R) program, we provide children's app developers with tools and guidance to strengthen those relationships, while awarding a trusted seal for apps that meet our high standards."
"One of the biggest services Moms With Apps can provide for parents, and children, is to support a community of developers who value how to make apps with privacy, trust, and transparency in mind, and understand relevant regulations," said Lorraine Akemann, founder of Moms with Apps.
MWA will establish the industry standards and best practices for transparency, regulatory compliance, and promotion within apps directed for children under the age of 13. The community will look for and develop tools to assist with targeted promotions of apps, crowd sourced beta testing, and other helpful tools for developers as technology continues to evolve.
Moms with Apps is the largest community of family friendly app developers in the world and a part of the ACT | The App Association.
