A few things are happening in the internet world – we’re updating our games to include in-app FAQs and support wherever we can, and taking note of the ever increasing awareness about privacy.
We’re adding in features to make it really clear (and fully opt-in) how your information is used, which in our games is to do with playing and submitting times for the daily games, earning stamps/tokens, and for the purposes of in-game ads, what kind of device you’re on and where in the world you are. We’re cycling round our games adding this throughout so you should see updates on that soon – and as well as explaining this in the games we’ll be including an opt-out too. This is all part of a heightened awareness worldwide about privacy, and a new regulation called GDPR. Even though our games don’t do anything where your personally identifiable information could be sent, it’s still about control of data.
Some of the games which we’ve had sitting in the stores for a while without any update, are being removed. While this isn’t permanent (we might get chance to come back to them, but it won’t be soon), it means you won’t find our Word Games collection, Haunted, Alien Pop, and our range of SAT Wordsearches on the various stores. If you’ve already got a copy of any of these, you’ll still be able to use them of course! We’re hoping in particular to come back to Hexxed and Gridlock from within the Word Games app, and bring those out as their own individual games, as these are both popular games!
Having a slightly smaller collection of games available makes it easier for us to keep them all updated – something that’s important to us – and especially the games which have new content to play each day.
