Apple's new game show is coming soon, and here are the details


In case you missed it, Apple is producing a new TV game show called “Planet of the Apps”. Its concept revolves around app developers and their struggles in the industry. The main concept of the show is to give app developers a chance to pitch their work to a jury of four celebrity entrepreneurs. The jury consists of Jessica Alba, will.i.am, Gwyneth Paltrow and Gary Vaynerchuk.

If the jury decides that the app has potential, one of them could tutor the developer and help them prepare the software for investors. Then comes the final step, in which the developers have to present their idea to investors. And successful apps will not only earn millions of dollars in capital, but also featured placement in the App Store.



The show will be available through Apple Music on Apple TV, iPhone, iPad, PC and Mac. There is no solid release date just yet, but Eddy Cue, Senior Vice President of Internet Software and Services at Apple, said it will be launching “in the spring”.

I think this is lame but a good way for developers to get promotion. And i'm sure the tweens will love it.
