Apple now allows gifting of in-app purchases

Apple now allows gifting of in-app purchases Apple has changed its guidelines for gifting in-app purchases , as spotted by MacRumors. Previously, you could gift paid apps to other people, but not paid in-app content. The new language is found in Apple’s App Store Review Guidelines. Before, it read: “Apps should not directly or indirectly enable gifting of in-app purchase content, features, or consumable items to others.” Now, it says: “Apps may enable gifting of items that are eligible for in-app purchase to others.

Apex Legends continues to grow.

The new video game from industry giant Electronic Arts has been grabbing attention online as it takes on one of the world's most popular games, Epic's Fortnite: Battle Royale. Like Fortnite, Apex Legends is free to download and is designed as a last-man-standing "battle royale" title.

And Apex Legends appears to be growing fast. Last week, the company said the game counted 10 million players in the first 72 hours since the game's launch. Now it's at 25 million players.


Celtic to launch £6 million move for Atalanta right back

Celtic to launch £6 million move for Atalanta right back After a summer of transfer discontent and the January window fast approaching, Brendan Rodgers is already looking to sign Belgian defender Timothy Castagne in a deal worth £6 million. According to the Daily Mail, the 23-year-old is a top target as Celtic look to add quality in the right-back position. Castagne, who made his international debut for Belgium against Scotland in September, has made just seven appearances in Serie A for Atlanta this season and could make the move to Glasgow as he seeks more first-team opportunities. With the ageing Mikael Lustig struggling to find consistent form this would be a clear area to strengthen next month. The defender is currently contracted till 2020 so the Italians are said to be less keen on selling but the player could be attracted by Celtic’s domestic success, European football and also the chance to work under Rodgers. The club are also thought to be pushing to sign PSG forward Timothy Weah in a loan deal as the manager looks to bolster his attacking options but thus far he hasn’t confirmed any done deals. With the current focus very much on Saturday’s derby clash with Rangers, it seems transfer deals will take a back step but it does seem certain that Celtic will add to their squad in January.
