China is cracking down on mobile news applications that provide news information services without approval from government regulators, threatening to shut down those who refuse to “rectify”. Although, this news does not directly apply to most people in this class, it does serve as a reminder that the government can have a certain degree of control over mobile application development. It also reminds those of us who take interest in foreign mobile app markets to be wiser in what sort of apps we will develop for any particular foreign demographic.
