As part of Apple’s ongoing focus on Canadian developers in the App Store as part of Canada 150 celebrations, the focus has continued and now we see a dedicated section highlighting apps “Made in Halifax.”
The section’s description reads:
Beautiful waterfronts, incredible seafood, renowned universities—and Homer Simpson, too. Halifax and its Atlantic Canada neighbours have given us everything from the intriguing photo manipulation app HYPERSPEKTIV to Charlottetown, PEI-developed The Simpsons: Tapped Out. If you’ll forgive a bit of fishy punnery, we’re completely hooked on the prize catches found in this ocean of creative talent.
The section has app categories named “Apps and games from Halifax” and “More from Atlantic Canada”, naming prominent and popular apps.
Previous Canada 150 sections have highlighted apps from Montreal, Toronto-Waterloo, Vancouver, Calgary and Ottawa, while also focused on various game makers such as Klei, RAC7, DrinkBox and Noodlecake.
