  • Survey at the end of the webinar include a drawing for an itunes giftcard
  • According to Ralf Jahns of Resarch2Guidance
    1.       Increased market growth: The pace at which the market is growing has accelerated again. Combined download numbers as well as revenue of all major application stores reached 2009 levels in only five months. App revenue for 2010, which will almost triple in relation to 2009 figures, is set to reach almost $US5bn.
    2.       Deceleration of price decline: During the first two years until the end of 2009 the average price of an application dropped from US$20 to almost US$4. The first half of 2010 saw this erosion almost halted. At the same time this trend is accompanied by major price movements within app stores which demonstrate price increases of as much as +30%, and similarly declines as steep as -30%. This might indicate greater market transparency and simpler arbitrage processes.
    3.       Apple’s competitors increased their market share: Not surprisingly the sheer volume of new competitors had an impact on the market dominance of Apple in the applications business. In 2010 developers and smartphone users started to focus on platforms alternative to Apple, who lost almost 10% of market share in the first half of 2010.
    4.       Omnipresence of Android: At the end of 2009 only six devices used the Andoid operating system. During the first six months of 2010, however, smartphone device manufacturers released a new Android device every 2-3 days. In 2010 the number of smartphone models using an Android system overtook the number with other OS platforms like Windows and Symbian for the first time since the launch of the Apple App Store in 2008.
    5.       Smartphone shipments remain the main market driver: The shipment of smartphones has already reached almost 30% in some industrialized countries. Furthermore the number of smartphones shipped in the first HY 2010 was already 70% of that reached throughout 2009. All of these smartphones provide easy access to application stores, and this in turn drives application download numbers.
    6.       Companies are getting in on the act: By the end of 2009 less than 10% of global companies had a presence in one or more app stores. The latest analysis shows that over the last few months the activity levels of major brands has increased. In addition to branding, companies are also increasingly using applications to link to their core products or to build transaction business.
  • The app market is growing
    so is the # of mobile websites including revenue from mobile web
    Great debate: Mobile App or Mobile Web? “With mobile usage exploding, it may not matter but you have to be in at least one.”
  • Now its about 45% of us adults with smart phones (those that have apps)
  • Number of devices forecast to be shipped with GPS in Q4 2011:318 million or 80% of all shipments by Wireless Week

  • Most consumers’ mobile security & privacy concerns are related to providing PII & the financial transaction itself.
  • Examples: sign up for a newsletter, complete a form, make a purchase etc.
  • ·         Growing use of GPS / geo-location based services; Location makes features on mobile devices & advertising more relevant
    ·         Advertising - - primary way to support free or low cost mobile apps which are the majority of apps available; some use behavioral advertising
    ·         Social networking technologies enhance mobile users’ experience (upload your Facebook address book)
    . Your rich bank of personal data goes everywhere you go
    . User tracking / mobile analytics and its tie to the mobile device which is a unique identifier of a person
    ·         Marketing to children under the age of 13 (same as PC web site)
    ·         Concerns are partially due to newness mobile technology but many are new
     
  • Does a game developer really need to know where you live?
    --------------------------
    October 1st. Apple makes the Unique Device ID (UDID) available to all app developers; The intended role of the UDID as a unique token to remotely store local application preferences is a convenient tool for programmers (example: store the scores & last level completed for a player so when they return, they can pick up from where they left off)
    However, the potential for the abuse of privacy is remarkably high. For example, some of these developers do NOT encrypt this information during transmission
    Users have very little control over who has access to their UDID. Our position is that we want to protect our clients and ensure that such type of data is collected, strored and transmitted as safely as possible. Any tie of UDID to profile data from Facebook, for example is a ticking time bomb. We help make sure that if this is done, it in line with industry best practices and compliance with privacy rules and regulations.
    ------------------
    Another study whose results published on 9/30/10 found:
    Google too has from time to time disabled applications in response to knowledge about privacy invasions
    --------------------------------------
    While there was no assertion or admission of wrong doing, these findings raise concern about the extent to which mobile platforms can insulate users from unwanted invasions of privacy.
    Bottom line, most companies don’t want to be in the news for this reason which is why its in company’s best interest to seek out an expert when it comes to these matters rather than going it alone and hoping for the best.

  • DO YOU WANT THIS TO HAPPEN TO YOUR COMPANY?
    The issue was with an app or a browser in which the referrer URLs were including Facebook IDs inadvertently
    BTW-anyone can use an ID number to look up a person's name, using a standard Web browser, even if that person has set all of his or her Facebook information to be private. For other users, the Facebook ID reveals information they have set to share with "everyone," including age, residence, occupation and photos.
    -------------------------------------
    This past spring, the Journal found that Facebook was transmitting the ID numbers to advertising companies, under some circumstances, when a user clicked on an ad. Facebook subsequently discontinued the practice.

    • 24. Recent privacy breaches 1 Study by Eric Smith, Asst. Director of Info. Security & Networking at Bucknell University in Lewisburg, PA, Oct 1, 2010 2 TaintDroid study by researchers from Duke University, Penn State University, and Intel Labs on September 30, 2010 iPhone Apps Sending Out Devices' Serial Numbers, Log-In ID 1 A study of 57 of the most popular iPhone apps found that 68% transmitted the devices' unique serial numbers to remote servers owned by either the developer or an advertiser. Furthermore, many applications -- including Amazon, Facebook and Twitter -- also collected users' log-in data.
    • 25. Recent privacy breaches 1 Study by Eric Smith, Asst. Director of Info. Security & Networking at Bucknell University in Lewisburg, PA, Oct 1, 2010 2 TaintDroid study by researchers from Duke University, Penn State University, and Intel Labs on September 30, 2010 Some Android apps were caught covertly sending GPS data to advertisers 2 • A study tested 30 popular free Android applications and found that half were sending private information to advertising servers, including the user's location and phone number. • In some cases, the apps were relaying GPS coordinates to remote advertising network servers as frequently as every 30 seconds, even when not displaying advertisements.
    • 26. Another privacy breach: Facebook & 3rd party apps What happened? October 18th, The Wall Street Journal found that many of the most popular applications, or "apps," on Facebook have been transmitting identifying information—providing access to people's names and, in some cases, their friends' names—to dozens of advertising and Internet tracking companies” Who was involved? • The Journal examined the 10 most popular apps on Facebook include Zynga’s FarmVille, Texas HoldEm Poker and FrontierVille. • Three of the top 10 apps also have been transmitting personal information about a user's friends to outside companies. • In all, 12 companies were involved in the most recent shut down • 10s of millions of users were affected What was the result? •LOLapps Media Inc. was shut down suddenly and unexpectedly by Facebook as the Journal found them to be transmitting user IDs. •Facebook made several other apps unavailable.
    • 27. Example of a privacy issue: Use of geo-location • Many mobile devices sold today are capable of pinpointing users within 30 feet of their actual location. Location-aware apps can: – Bring discounts and promotions directly to users at the point of purchase – Provide valuable, real-time data about customer preferences. – Help Marketers to target offers and advertisements through increased relevance, accuracy, and timeliness. • Company benefits: This data, in aggregate, is used to provide data on key market trends, or integrated into a customer profile to provide a more personalized experience. • Consumer benefits: Gains access to information that can be instantly relevant to a purchasing decision including location- specific discounts and services
    • 28. Example best practices  Provide users with transparency and remain accountable – Use clear messaging re: use of location data – Secure this data through encryption etc. – Ensure adequate consumer redress mechanisms for those who want to remove their location data  Provide users with choice (i.e. ask users permission to use their location information before you collect it) – Meaningful choice is when consumers understand the implications of sharing their data.  Have a privacy trust mark– Users will reward companies who make strong commitments to their privacy – Users recognize established trust marks (like TRUSTe) means a company has undergone rigorous vetting by an independent 3rd party Trust # of downloads # of registrations # and purchase amount

    • 39. Key Takeaways • More and more users are becoming mobile: Demand for a mobile presence will become more and more critical to business success • Given the crowded app marketplace, the high cost and resources investment involved, do not risk user distrust & associated backlash. Instead: – Convey privacy commitment which will increase user engagement, registration and download rates – Differentiate your app based on user trust – Avoid getting into trouble re: user privacy • Mobile privacy certification is especially critical if a mobile app or web utilizes any of the following: • Geo-location • Advertising especially if combined with geo location or behavior • Social media technologies (i.e. sign in with your Facebook account ID) • Collection of Personally Identifiable Information (PII)
