Live from AppsWorld North America 2014

3:12 p.m. PT Kii Platform Evangelist German Viscuso took to the Gaming World stage to talk about using Unity + Kii Game Cloud for cross-platform game development. His point: Game developers are great at building games, but aren’t typically as skilled at server provisioning and ongoing management. With a game cloud, you don’t have to worry about it. Features of note: Player management (register players with one line of code), data management (e.g. specify two things to save game progress across different devices on the backend), analytics and geolocation. All with seamless gameplay.

10:11 a.m. PT That’s a wrap for Woz’s keynote. We’ll be hanging out at Booth #113 giving away Parrot Ar.Drones. Stop by and say hi.

Keynote highlights:

“[With mobile] we’re having a lot more innovations and changes today than we ever have.”

“Apple is superior at saying no. They focus on what they do…[They put together] small teams with great people. “

“A whole new category of products doesn’t happen very often. If you’ve got something really great, don’t change it.”

Steve Jobs’ focus at Apple: “Keeping products good and usable. You don’t want too much junk in it.”

“We all need to build more security.”

“You don’t want to deceive your users. You want to protect them…Their data is their data.”

IOT (beyond wearables) needs standards. “Right now I can write code and so can anyone.”
