They just rescind their right to complain about it later and absolve Apple of responsibility.
Apple is taking the opt-out approach, when they should have taken the opt-in approach.
Nope. The world doesn’t revolve around people with children.
Your logic is failing in that you are assuming the parents are aware that such a feature exists to have the need to restrict.
No, I’m explicitly stating otherwise. If you do not have knowledge, you find knowledge. Apple has great help articles.
Look, just like you, I definitely am smart enough to restrict my phone in advance.
Thanks for proving my point: people can get the information needed to do what they want done.
I refuse to fault a parent who downloaded a FREE CHILDS GAME and was victim to their child buying 15,000 Smurf berries within 15 minutes for $99. And that is all this is really about!
My feelings on the content, scope, and purpose of in-app purchases probably eclipse yours by an order of magnitude, but that’s not what we’re discussing right now.
If you’d like to start discussing the sleaziness of the above, let me know. I’ll bring the pain.
The entire concept is predatory. Who in their right mind would spend $99 on a video game virtual currency for a child's game?
Preach it, brother.
I know several wealthy and spoiled brats, none of which would be allowed such an insane and stupid purchase.
Sounds more like the ‘wealthy and spoiled brats’ would be the ones who’d get a pass on such a thing because of 1. parental neglect/abuse (allowing the kid to do whatever he wants is abuse) and 2. the money being less than pocket change.
Or are you highlighting the magnitude of the purchase as being even beyond what those parents would accept?
