Apple revokes Google’s Enterprise iOS Developer Certificate

Earlier, Apple revoked Facebook's iOS enterprise developer certificate for violating its Terms of Service, and Apple is now giving the same treatment to Google.  Apple has shut down Google's internal iOS apps for doing the exact same thing Facebook was doing—distributing enterprise apps outside of the company.

Google Screenwise Meter app violates Apple Policy, just like Facebook

It appears that Facebook was not the only one abusing Apple’s system for distributing employee-only apps to sidestep the App Store and collect extensive data on users.

Virtru’s brings encryption to third-party developers

Virtru announced today it is opening up their encryptiontechnology to third party developers through the Virtru Data Protection Platform.

BlackBerry World will no longer offer Paid Apps from April 1, 2018

Being a BlackBerry developer has always come with a lot of challenges. Even in the Enterprise sphere it has never been a straightforward task. As a developer I've questioned myself many times "is it worth it".
