The children’s app market shows no signs of slowing as a mecca for established studios and newcomers alike, with the sector grabbing an increasing slice of the total mobile app market that’s projected to reach $98 billion by 2018, according to ABI Research. But like any commercial fast lane, it’s also rife with potholes and fender benders. The FTC, for instance, just released a report saying that hundreds of mobile apps are collecting information without parents’ knowing, including phone numbers and locations. That’s just one reason that it’s more imperative than ever that publishers and programmers understand not only the new ways kids are demanding to interact with stories and games, but also how to reassure parents that your apps are safe and appropriate for their kids to use and engage with.

That’s why you’ll want to join us  for the Cynopsis Kids webinar that will deliver a state-of-the-art blueprint when it comes to kids apps. From the latest advancements in digital storytelling such as BabyFirst’s cutting-edge partnership with the American Heart Assn. on a new immersive app to best practices for avoiding unforeseen in-app purchases from industry regulatory compliance expert Linnette Attai of PlayWell LLC, our executive panel will steer you toward optimal app development, discovery and post-purchase success.

You’ll walk away with the most current intel about how to:

* Create apps that take the platform to the next level by combining storytelling and gaming

* Provide greater opportunity for parental interaction both in real time and remotely

* Ensure compliance with COPPA, FTC and other standards

* Determine the optimal price point for your product (hint, free isn’t always best)

* Make your app stand out from the crowd by optimizing discoverability and messaging for both parents and kids

* Ensure retention once your app is downloaded by blending immediate gratification and customizable play

* Build digital extensions for your stories and characters
