While the device already has an option in the settings to disable In App Purchases. The issue is Apple should do more to inform parents of this setting so parents don't learn about it after their child spent $200+ on In App Purchases by a mistake.I can understand the frustration of a parent finding a huge bill just for letting the little ones play a game for a while, but I don't think the ability for in-app purchases should be removed entirely.
If anything, games should include more safeguards to prevent these kinds of purchases so easily.
With games constantly becoming more and more complex, I think it's only a matter of time before we start seeing an entirely different caliber of games for Apple portable devices (e.g. Infinity Blade). With that, I'm actually looking forward to some high quality games that will be available for free that will be supported by in-app purchases. I fell in love with this system when I started playing a PC MMORPG called Runes of Magic. When I wanted to be a little more uber, I could drop a few dollars in the store. Otherwise, I just played the game for free.
Please Ciran...Maybe some people shouldn't have kids, or use apps. Apple has provided you with a disable switch. Kindly do yourself and society a favor by starting up Settings and using it.
Says the guy user who probably doesn't even have any kids or is likely a child themself.Maybe some people shouldn't have kids, or use apps. Apple has provided you with a disable switch. Kindly do yourself and society a favor by starting up Settings and using it.
PLEASE NOTE: Smurf Village is free to play, but charges real money for additional in-app content. You may lock out the ability to purchase in-app content by adjusting your devices settings.
Yes, I received a full refund on every purchase. And I don't allow in App purchases, which Apple obviously still has not properly addressed and I don't know why they would continue this policy. It is a policy that will make those of us that own Apple distrust them. Why does Apple continue to risk the reputation of their great company???Still nothing back from Apple, has anyone actually received a refund beyond the people in the articles?
