What next for apps? [S13E07]

This week we turn the whole episode over to listener (and ace mobile developer / author) Matt Lacey’s question - what comes next for apps?

The team talk through their views of the future, the impact of integrating apps into the OS and how Ewan’s going to get his toothpaste ordered. We consider how app-makers will have to shape their business to benefit from OS integration and whether regulators might get involved to keep things ‘fair’.
