Free-to-play children's apps: it's time for a proper debate - Stuart Edge in The Guardian

When I talk to fellow parents, it's surprising how many say in the same breath that they won't let their kids play anything with IAP, yet also that they only download free apps for those children. This contradiction is putting pressure on developers trying to a.) make great apps and b.) stay in business.

 

Perhaps the media reports of kids overspending on IAP will change things, persuading more parents to pay for high-quality apps, or spend more time figuring out which apps use IAP in an ethical way.

Developer ideas on how parents, Apple and their peers can avoid IAP controversies. By Stuart Dredge
@CotCotCotApps's insight:

Very interesting views from / on all stakeholders' role and responsibility following the IAP controversy in the UK. 

It would be high time for app developers to adopt a code of conduct before the EU Commission regulates the market. A good example is MomsWithApp's Privacy & Safety badge developped to be compliant with the US Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA)
