App Store Learn More About In App Puchases

 

Apple Is Trying to Make Users More Aware of the Pitfalls of In-App Purchases

This week the iPad App Store has added a new section to help users understand In-App Purchases. The section is called Learn More About In-App Purchases and it’s included in the iPad App Store Featured area, in the section just below What’s Hot.

The new section provides a good, concise overview of In-App purchase, the different types of In-App purchases and how they work, and how to setup parental controls to disable the ability to make use of them.

Just a few weeks ago Apple made the ‘warning’ symbol for apps that contain In-App purchase options more prominent. It’s good to see their continuing efforts to raise awareness on this subject and try to avoid some of the sad stories we see so often where kids unwittingly rack up huge credit card bills for unsuspecting parents.

  1. I think this was a good move by Apple, it will make parents with kids that have access to their iOS devices feel more safe and secure – the last thing they want is an unexpected bill.
