App Governance Questions

  • Ads?
  • App content appropriate to be under university umbrella?
  • Will data be collected? Is it local use?
  • Is it going to be published?
  • Who’s intellectual property is in the app?
  • What about apps that have a charge or in-app purchases?

How do we share?

  • Publish app details: description, icon, screen shots, accessibility, privacy and security, mobile-friendly & native apps, ratings (staff and faculty), description.
