ATLANTA, GA--(Marketwired - August 07, 2013) - App developer Wasabi Productions is proud to be accepted into the Moms with Apps list of approved developers who are taking children's privacy seriously and communicating with parents about how their apps use data.
The Know What's Inside initiative is designed to help family-friendly developers comply with the Federal Trade Commission's updated Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) that went live on July 1
The Know What's Inside logo is a signal to parents that an app is designed with privacy in mind and that a developer has committed to tell parents how our apps work so they know what to expect.
Amy Friedlander, VP Marketing & Strategy for Wasabi Productions, says, "We have always strived to be a world-class family-friendly storybook app developer and are proud to continue to uphold the highest standards and best practices when it comes to designing technology for children and giving parents peace of mind."
About Wasabi Productions:
Wasabi Productions believes children can deepen their love of stories and language through more intimate engagement with characters and imaginary worlds afforded by interactive digital technology. They're an independent publisher of original, high-quality storybook apps designed for pre-schoolers and touch screen devices. The company was born in Australia, and one of the first publishers of interactive children's books for the iPad. Wasabi focuses on reimagining storybooks for the digital age, and entertaining young kids with tales of memorable characters where their interaction is central. The books contain moral and social outtakes, and together with text highlighting and educational elements, contribute positively to early readers' development. Wasabi apps have received critical acclaim and the developer is one of the founding members of the Moms With Apps 'Know What's Inside' initiative to protect children's privacy in apps. Wasabi has pioneered a 'Delay Interactions' feature that ensures interaction does not detract from story comprehension.
