One of the biggest reasons I tend to pay for Apps is to avoid the advertising. Plus, I’ve heard of children managing to download full versions at great expense to their parents. This happened to one of my neighbors but he did manage to get a £70 credit from Apple and he has now changed the settings so it doesn’t happen again.
I was trolling the net today looking for more Maths apps for my 5 year old. I often rely on the reviews when deciding whether to purchase or not.
I know I shouldn’t find this funny, but I did!
You may want to bear this in mind when downloading those FREE apps and don’t forget to turn off the ability for ‘in app purchases’ on your devices to avoid any nasty surprises!

On a serious note, that’s pretty shocking really. Someone somewhere, hasn’t done their homework!!
Adds for vodka, well they obviously know it’s my phone!, seriously though, not good.
The ad-free payment model seems to be coming apart everywhere.
I’m constantly irritated by the endless American-style TV ad breaks on all the cable-shite channels (5 mins of adverts every 10 mins), which I’m paying huge sums to watch.
I must be mad, and they must be sniggering all the way to the bank!
