Google Announces Google Play's "Best of 2018" Awards

Apple removes over 700 apps from Chinese App Store Apple removes another 700+ apps from its Chinese App Store

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.

Back in July, we told you told that Apple's iPhones faced a risk of getting banned in India if the Cupertino-based tech giant didn't allow Indian government's TRAI DND app on its App Store.

India's telecom watchdog and the the United States phonemaker have been at loggerheads for almost two years over the so-called privacy details sought by the country's regulator while flagging spam calls. The fraud scheme, which Google calls 'install attribution abuse', involves a developer claiming a share of the revenue generated by app downloads despite playing no role in guiding users to install the app.

Android apps for Cheetah Mobile and Kika are reportedly being kicked off Google's Play Store.

As 2018 comes to a close, Apple has released a list of the best media and apps that people watched, played and listened to on its devices over the year. These extensions are likely what Apple did not like about the app itself. The consumers are free to choose among 2million apps, from the prior 500 apps which were made available when App store was launched in year 2008. Sources at the bank said the new app had been designed by a third-party service provider with only some functionalities developed in-house. On Apple TV, Sweat has given the award for the most popular app.

We don't know yet whether she's going to take his name but Priyanka Chopra has now certainly been taken. "45 seconds of silence". Like DeepVeer, Priyanka and Nick looked extremely happy couple and for Priyanka we must say "Happy brides are always beautiful".

Once this is done, you can now directly report spam calls through your phone app on the Apple iPhone.

In the first step, the user will be required to choose whether to receive no calls at all or select the categories which they do not want to receive any communication from.

The possibility of such sensitive information being sent to TRAI DND is likely why Apple said that there was risk to user privacy.

But if you missed any of the above, now's the time to jump in - before we get a whole new slew in 2019. Customers who are already using the old app can continue to do so without having to download it afresh. Do you like how easy it is to report unwanted or spam phone calls and texts?
