Insane method of restoring in-app purchases. Beware.
Should be a simple thing to press a “restore in-app purchases” but nooooo… this is what I got from Disney Digital Books Member Services:
"So that we may add the credits to the new device, please send us a copy of your iTunes receipt showing the purchase of the additional credits (a screenshot of your iTunes purchase history showing the purchase would work as well) along with the new device's installation and device ID's. You can retrieve these by opening the Storytime app, click on "Parents" in the top left corner, click "Help" and then scroll down to the bottom of the page and click on our support e-mail address. This will open up an e-mail with some information about your device already added to the e-mail. Please send us this information so that we can add the credits.”
First of all, wading thru dozens of pages to find where I spend $20 on credits alone is a show stopper. Have you ever tried to find a past purchase in iTunes? You have to know approximately when you may have made the purchase, and then wade thru dozens of pages of items bought. Insane. Do not buy the credits if there is even the remotest chance that you may switch devices or be prepared to do some work.
Well, one of my daughters favorite things to do, is to choose what color the light changes to from the page we are on “Change Color?". . . which is an option available in the 3 books that come with the app. . . but NONE of the extras purchased? And some of the extra books don’t even change color from page to page, when they clearly could and should. Just last night we downloaded The story of Abu the monkey from Aladdin, and when it was night time, and the color would have been great to go to a dark purple, NOPE, just stayed on the bright yellow. Was just thinking about putting this on my other daughters iPad as mine crashed a couple times upon new book purchases, sending my daughter into a tailspin before nighttime. . .given everybody else’s reviews. . . guess not . . hopefully just not YET….
PARENTAL CONTROLS DO NOTHING TO PREVENT SPENDING COINS! DO NOT BUY!
I bought 10 tokens for $10. It seemed fair but when I looked at the app the other day then all the tokens were spent because my daughter was able to buy all sorts of books with no parental interaction. (And to make it worse, she bought garbage stories very loosely related to Wall-E, Aristocats and Dug)
At first I blamed it on myself for not monitoring her while she read. So I bought 10 more when the new stories came out and now… all gone.
People love to accuse parents of being negligent or act like jerks when they can see a way to prevent it but lets be realistic. To a child then the act of sliding a coin to buy a book is more of a “game” than a purchase so the blame lies directly on Disney for not making some sort of parental intervention on spending coins.
