Apple showcases women-centric apps, books and games for International Women’s Day

Apple App Store

In light of International Women’s Day, the App Store is shining the spotlight on female developers and games with strong and exciting female characters.

Some of the games with strong female leads include: Lara Croft Go, Monument Valley 2, Flipped Out- The Powerpuff Girls, DC Super Hero Girls and Marvel Contest of Champions.

If those games aren’t of interest, why not try an app that’s been developed by a woman?
