Developers in Tunisia and Zimbabwe can now publish paid apps on the Play Store

How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND

It might surprise you to know that developers in many countries can’t sell paid apps on the Play Store. Last month, Ecuador, Sri Lanka, and Tanzania added support for merchant registration (a prerequisite to sell paid apps and IAPs on the Play Store), and now Tunisia and Zimbabwe have joined in on the fun.

We learned of these additions by way of a Google Play Console support page, but we’re not sure if they’ve officially rolled out yet.

Lisa Brennan-Jobs to Publish Memoir of Her Childhood With Steve Jobs and Chrisann Brennan

How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND

Grove Press this week announced that Lisa Brennan-Jobs, the eldest daughter of late Apple co-founder Steve Jobs and artist Chrisann Brennan, is working on a memoir about her childhood spent between two imperfect but extraordinary parents. The news was first reported by the Associated Press.

In the book, titled Small Fry, Brennan-Jobs recounts how Jobs was “rarely present” in the early years of her life, as he denied paternity. As she grew older, however, Jobs began to show an interest in her and apologized for his behavior.

The memoir’s description notes that Jobs ushered his daughter into a “new world of mansions, vacations, and private schools.” Brennan-Jobs was “thrilled” to receive attention from her father, but he could be “cold, critical and unpredictable” at times, echoing stories about his management style at Apple:

When she was young, Lisa’s father was a mythical figure who was rarely present in her life. As she grew older, her father took an interest in her, ushering her into a new world of mansions, vacations, and private schools. His attention was thrilling, but he could also be cold, critical and unpredictable. When her relationship with her mother grew strained in high school, Lisa decided to move in with her father, hoping he’d become the parent she’d always wanted him to be.

Brennan-Jobs, 39, graduated from Harvard University in 2000 and is now a professional writer. Jobs named the Apple Lisa, released one year before the original Macintosh, after her. She has three half-siblings, including Reed Jobs, Erin Jobs, and Eve Jobs, from Jobs’s later marriage to Laurene Powell.

Small Fry is scheduled for release in September, according to the Associated Press and a listing on the HarperCollins Canada website.

How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND

The Right to Repair bill is a tough pill to swallow. On one hand, it will allow customers easer access to parts and repair tools if a repair is warranted. However, on the other, it could force manufacturers to not alter designs and features  in the name of easier repairability. However, the bill continues to gain steam…

It’s thus out of preview and allows any developer to create AR-infused apps and publish them to the Play Store for Android. ARCore 1.0 has improved environmental understanding, letting users place virtual assets on textured surfaces like posters, furniture, toy boxes, books, cans, and many more – see an example in the image below.

‘Wargaming Mobile’ to Publish ‘Exiles of Embermark’ and More Mobile Combat RPGs from Gunslinger Studios

Gunslinger Studios’ Exiles of Embermark is easily one of my most anticipated games of 2018, and I was happy to hear that Wargaming Mobile, the newly formed division within the behemoth that is Wargaming.net, will publish this very promising game as well as other mobile combat RPG games from the developer. Wargaming Mobile sees Exiles as a great mobile game for those who enjoy quick experiences on the go and is probably also looking at the eSports capabilities of titles like Exiles and other similar head-to-head mobile experiences. I’m glad to see that Exiles found a strong partner that will ensure the game gets the proper exposure.

Exiles of Embermark, in case you haven’t read any of our many articles on the upcoming game, is a fast-paced mobile RPG with plenty of PvE and PvP content and a battle system that looks deep enough to be challenging and accessible enough to be welcoming. Players will join one of the many Houses and influence the world of Exiles through their actions. The game has a ton of fun features that you can learn about over at our forum thread. Hopefully Exiles will come to our phones soon.

Snapchat first rolled out Lenses two years ago when it flirted briefly with the idea of selling premium “Face Lenses” for selfies.

Twitter will now let you publish an entire tweetstorm all at once

Rant away!

Twitter’s reputation as a place for quick, pithy thoughts took another blow on Tuesday: The company rolled out a new feature that will make it easier for users to send a bunch of connected tweets at one time — often referred to as a tweetstorm.

 Twitter

Now users can write multiple tweets and Twitter will automatically thread them together and publish them in unison. It means that people can essentially post longer thoughts than Twitter’s already-expanded 280-character limit allows.

Twitter will also label threads with a “show this thread” icon so people know there is more to read. The company has been testing a product like this for months, but just launched it to everyone on Tuesday.

Tweetstorms have been around for years — venture capitalist Marc Andreessen was perhaps the first well-known person to utilize them — but they have always been a pain to create. They required users to publish each tweet in a thread one by one, which took time and could get complicated, depending on how long the tweetstorm was.

The new feature should make sending a thread of tweets much simpler, meaning more people will actually do it. Twitter’s belief is that longer posts, not shorter ones, perform better on Twitter. When the company doubled the length of a tweet last month, Twitter claimed that longer posts resulted in more engagement. (BuzzFeed found the same.)

So more tweetstorms, theoretically, should mean more engagement for Twitter.

It’s not clear what took Twitter such a long time to launch a feature like this. Again, tweetstorms have been around for years, and even Twitter executives use them regularly. But Twitter was slow to ship longer tweets out of fear that users would reject them, so it’s likely that when Twitter execs finally warmed up to the idea of longer posts, a tweetstorm product sounded like a good idea, too.

The update should be live to users on iOS, Android and Twitter.com in “the coming weeks,” the company wrote on its blog.
