Announcing the launch of “App Aid”
Well, the saying goes that from small acorns … so begins “App Aid” (Hopefully the name speaks for itself.)
Currently App Aid only represents a contribution of income from my own apps, so that is where I will start. The hope is that this could mushroom into something supported by other developers and platforms.
My first contribution towards App Aid comes in the form of “Live Tile News”, the innovative new news App that features up to 8 ‘Live tiles’ of topic based news as well as a novel panorama based UI with multiple layered icons.
I am giving all the proceeds (sales and advertising income) from this app to charity.
I also have a monthly timetable planned for 2012 whereby a percentage of the sales from designated Apps for each month will also go to charity.
At the moment the timetable for 2012 looks like this:
|Month||App||Percentage of income dontated|
|Jan||“Live Tile News”
”Live Tile News (Premium)”
|May||“The King’s Speech”||50%|
|Jul||“Torch / Flashlight”||50%|
|Aug||“Live Tile Sports”||50%|
|Oct||“Live Tile Sports II”||50%|
* On-going Forever
