Next up, the adviser will help the developer to create, market and test the app, before developers get the chance to pitch in front of Lightspeed Venture Partners. Apple aims to direct users toward new apps that may be worth trying or relevant to the day's watercooler topics.

Pair's creator teams up with Alba, and the 22-year-old University of MI alumni behind Companion get their dream mentor of Vaynerchuk, who comes off as a bit of a catastrophist in their early meetings (the apps young creators are far more charismatic in their vulnerability).

With the new videos, Apple's aims to get fans watching on their iPhones, which deliver nearly two-thirds of the company's sales.

Apple Music, which Apple announced this week has reached 27 million paying customers, is a destination service. It's also adding a new TV and Movies tab.

You shouldn't watch Planet of the Apps, it's a pretty trashy show, but if you want to see the diversity crisis affecting tech, the first 20 minutes aren't to be missed.

"The question when you have ideas is how to take those to fruition". On frequent visits to Los Angeles, he presses studios to make theatrical films available on iTunes sooner. Netflix and Hulu then spurred the rise of over-the-top, internet-based streaming TV "networks". The changes should be welcomed by app creators who've grown frustrated with the major challenge of getting noticed. Unless you're an iOS developer or Jessica Alba completist, though, Planet Off the Apps is no more essential viewing than whatever's on CNBC tonight. Since Apple surprise-released the first episode last night, the reviews haven't been any nicer than the initial reaction to the trailer: It's a "tepid, barely competent knockoff of Shark Tank" that "misses the point of original programming" and feels "like slowly dying". For the hosts, it was an opportunity to display a side less known to consumers. The production quality is similar to other Face-Off reality shows such as Hell's Kitchen. This is how I operate. The show also is being featured on the Apple website.

"Planet of the Apps" debuts ahead of Apple's adaptation of James Corden's popular "Late Late Show" segment "Carpool Karaoke", which was originally slated to be the company's first series out of the gate.

In the first two episodes, developers present apps for online shopping, campus safety and a school backpack.

Apple's involvement was a draw for both Paltrow and Alba. Filming for the show started near the end of 2016 and finished in February. Will.i.am., a member of the rap group Black Eyed Peas, was an early investor in Beats Electronics, which Apple bought for $3 billion. He is a social media and a digital marketing influencer with globally acclaimed fame.
