Apple approves India’s controversial Do Not Disturb app

Back in July, Apple faced an impending iPhone ban in India if it did not comply by January 2019 with the region's telecom regulator, TRAI. Before this week, the TRAI DND app was only found on Google Play Store for those on Android device. How long is it before we see apps that manage to fool users this way, I wonder?

iPhone app of the year is "Procreate Pocket" while iPhone game of the year is "Donut County".

It is worth noticing that the functions of the app are similar to that of Truecaller, which enjoys a lot of popularity in India.

It's not the first time Apple has cracked down on rule-breakers in China, which has a very different app ecosystem than most of the world.

Apple takes 30% commission on sale of the apps, but the company says any issues regarding pricing structure must come from the developers and not the consumers because the commission is paid by the developers.

The TRAI-DND app is available for free from the iOS App Store. This will allow you to actively report spam callers.

To register for DND, users will have to complete three steps before they can start reporting spam calls/ messages.

It was not clear if the current version of "TRAI DND-Do Not Disturb" app released in the Apple App Store implements additional privacy protections beyond what was originally devised by the TRAI. In order to install the app, your device should be running the latest version of iOS 12.1. To do this, swipe from right to left on a number in your recent calls list, and select the "report" option. The app is called "Do Not Disturb (DND 2.0)' on Google's Play Store, and 'TRAI DND - Do Not Disturb" on Apple's App Store. If your app is going to reach the widest possible audience, then you'll need ...

Announced at Flutter Live, Flutter 1.0 doesn't just allow cross-platform app development on a single codebase. It's not clear whether Apple agreed to settle on giving TRAI access to all call logs and texts or if TRAI settled on the things Apple agreed upon to avoid a ban.

Hummingbird will take Flutter one step further by allowing app developers to create web apps, too.

The possibility of such sensitive information being sent to TRAI DND is likely why Apple said that there was risk to user privacy. Fortnite, Helix Jump and Rise Up were the top games of the year on the App Store, followed closely by PUBG Mobile, which won the best game of the year on Android.
