For parents only

“Tricksters” is the nicest label parents have attached to game developers who insist on making in-app purchasing so easy for kids.

Here’s what happens:

A child is happily clicking through a free or 99 cent game.  Then bam!  Fun add-ons are offered.  The problem:  expansion packs, that are so easy for kids to order, cost money.

Can the collective voice of irritated parents convince designers to hide the in-app purchasing options behind parent-only gates?
