New York, NY (PRWEB) April 16, 2014
Cupcake Digital has become the 200th member of the Moms with Apps Know What’s Inside® program, a part of ACT | The App Association. One of the largest independent developers of apps for children, the company is also the newest member of the ACT | The App Association. Cupcake transforms children’s entertainment properties into delightful storybook, learn & play and creative play apps infused with teaching moments.
“We are thrilled to join Moms With Apps and ACT as the 200th company admitted to the Know What's Inside program,” said Cupcake Digital CEO Brad Powers. “The Moms With Apps community of developers has been a valuable resource. Cupcake Digital connects children with their favorite programming in a mobile environment that values privacy first and foremost. ACT and Moms With Apps have been leaders in promoting these values and we're proud to stand with them."
The Know What’s Inside® program from Moms With Apps is dedicated to helping family-friendly app companies implement best practices around privacy and comply with federal privacy rules enacted last July. The program provides developers with guidance on best practices and requires each developer to meet those standards to qualify for the Know What’s Inside® seal.
“We started the Know What’s Inside® program to build on the Moms With Apps community of parent app developers sharing their experiences in the kids app marketplace," said Sara Kloek of Moms With Apps. "It provides a valuable platform for discussion about what app companies need to do to meet the standards of an evolving legal framework. MWA is an organization of app makers who are parents first and developers second. Cupcake Digital exemplifies that spirit and we are pleased to welcome them as our 200th Know What's Inside® company."
“We are pleased to welcome Cupcake Digital as the newest member of ACT | The App Association," said ACT executive director Morgan Reed. "Having helped kids app developers across the country adopt best practices and meet legal requirements, we are excited to bring on board a company like Cupcake Digital that epitomizes our commitment to privacy and transparency."
