Facebook Bringing the “Like” Button to Mobile Apps Officially

Facebook has officially allowed mobile app developers to build an official Facebook Like button in the apps.

 

Facebook’s statement is:

• Starting today we will no longer approve custom like actions. Apps that currently use a custom like action must migrate to use the built-in like action in the next 90 days. We have updated the Platform Roadmap to reflect this change.
• A like may only be published when a person performs a like action. For example, if someone gives a movie a five-star rating in a movie app, that warrants a rated action rather than a like action.
• For more guidance on creating your own like buttons, please see our branding guidelines.

 

For more details, you can see it here.

Apple: will soon be banning the use of UDID

According to AllThingsD, in responding to the recent suspected case of leaked UDIDs, Apple spokeswoman Natalie Kerris has claimed that:

“The FBI has not requested this information from Apple, nor have we provided it to the FBI or any organization. Additionally, with iOS 6 we introduced a new set of APIs meant to replace the use of the UDID and will soon be banning the use of UDID,”

If her claim is true, many developers around the world would have to think of a way of replacing the use of UDIDs in their apps as the use of UDIDs is very common nowadays.
