Parents argue 'it's too easy for kids to rack up huge bills'.
A parent group has filed a lawsuit against Apple, over bills resulting on in-game microtransactions made by their children...
According to the BBC, Apple is being sued by a group of parents, who argue that it is too easy for children to rack up huge bills without an adult's consent. Apple asked for the case to be dismissed, but a Judge denied it...
The group claims certain games have been developed “strategically to induce purchases of Game Currency”. Examples of these games are Smurfs' Village and Tap Pet Hotel.
Of course, Apple hasn't commented, and apparently in the latest iOS software, the company added extra steps in the in-app purchasing process, including the requirement to enter an additional password to buy items within apps. But for these group of parents, that wasn't enough! How this case will end?
