True, a smart developer would have all the different versions linked. But I don't see that happening.

If Apple were looking out for users, they'd publish 2 prices for each app.

1. The price to download
2. The price to fully purchase the app with all in app purchases tallied.

That'd put an end to some of these practices. Too bad making money through trickery takes priority over the customer experience.

They haven't even updated the original Plants vs Zombies to the 4" screen. What makes them think they're ready to release a second version?!

Yeah!

EA sucks!

I hear they eat babies, literally spit and crap on customers (same time somehow), and just generally make games that nobody likes.

Am I cool yet?

Try spending your hard earned money on games like Monopoly and Scrabble, only to have them completely ****** up in more recent updates.

I did buy monopoly on the iPad.

Haven't played it much, though. It's broken?

Could be worse, I paid about 18$ for Final Fantasy Tactics that hasn't been updated in over a year.

I have to agree with this. I don't mind IAP to speed up games. I don't mind waiting 24 hours for my utter destroyed car to repair (in part cause I have 3 cars) but when it's like the Simpsons and after maybe a week you can't really play without paying that is crap.

And I would rather buy level packs (assuming reasonable pricing) than a whole separate game. I feel like the Angry Birds seasons should have been that way. And the whole free v paid with no ads should be an IAP so we don't have to start over.

Cloud syncing would be a plus but universal to me is a must. Do it like Temple
Run Oz did it and download the standard version off the top and when you detect a device that can go HD ask folks if they want those assets. Or how about Apple treats universal apps like they do videos, when we hit download ask which one we want (they used to have that in iOS 5 for video when you were downloading previous purchases as well as showing what was already bought and I hope those are brought back)
