Apple Adds 'Offers In-App Purchases' Warning to App Store

Apple has added a warning to apps with in-app purchases to make it clearer to buyers that purchases can be made from within the application.

A message that reads 'Offers In-App Purchases' is display directly under the app's icon and buy/download button on its App Store page. So far the message hasn't been spotted on the mobile App Store.

It's thought the warning may have resulted from a lawsuit which Apple recently agreed to settle over 'bait apps' that allowed children to rack up huge iTunes bills on their parents account.

Even though he's fired Scott Forstall which was a team leader for iOS. He's also downgraded Jonathan Ives power. The way it used to work is one team would do everything and then Steve Jobs and Jonathan Ives would pass or tell them to redo it. The way it's working now everything is all fragmented a few teams working on a calendar app a few teams working on a mail app it just doesn't seem that the level of quality and uniformity we've come to expect from IOS will be there. They've also just found a bug that allows people to reset your Apple ID with just your birthday

I'm not sure if this is Tim Cook bowing to pressure, Or actually trying to make iOS better. Like the multiple step verification they've added recently and declining apps that use UDID's. I believe iOS 7 is really going to be the deciding factor of Apple's future iOS really needs a big overhaul not just incremental changes. It needs flatter design needs to be simpler have more features they really need to incorporate about 10 or 15 apps from Cydia. Because I don't believe jailbreaking is going to be possible after iOS 7. If Apple doesn't incorporate these features that I've come to rely on that stock iOS is sorely missing I may have to switch to Samsung even though they're not as good a phone
