DEVELOPER NETWORK

The number of developers in the global Alliance network nearly doubled in 2014. We've learned more about the work they are doing, the resources they need and the products they are bringing to market. In 2015, we’ll continue to grow our network and the services we offer to meet their needs.

CORPORATE MEMBERS

The companies the Apps Alliance proudly serves as members continues to grow in number and importance. Dozens of startups, emerging services, and global industry leaders joined the ranks of Apps Alliance in 2014. Their contribution to our events, publications, programming, and educational materials has already been felt by thousands of developers.

 
 

 
 

Developers need the freedom to focus on innovating and creating apps that improve peoples' lives, expand the economy, and create jobs.

A Leading Voice on Patent Reform

The Apps Alliance supports legislation that will undermine the patent troll business model without harming legitimate patent enforcement. In 2014 the Alliance and our members testified several times in Congress, were included in dozens of newspaper, television, and radio features, and cited by Members of Congress as a basis for their support of patent reform legislation.

Law School Defense Network

The Alliance established a nationwide network of law schools, law students, and lawyers to provide free legal services to app developers threatened by patent trolls.

Open Source Privacy Screens

The Apps Alliance and Intuit partnered to provide app developers open source code that enables them to implement short-form privacy notices - simple screens that clearly inform consumers what data the app is collecting and with whom the data is shared.

Google+ Hangout with FTC Commissioner 

The Alliance hosted a Google Hangout with FTC Commissioner Maureen Olhausen and ten Alliance members to discuss patent trolls, privacy laws, sharing economy competition, and the FTC's role in promoting app industry innovation.
