Have kids who use an iPad or iPhone? 4 Easy Steps to Disable In-App Purchases

IMG_5359

If you use an iOS apple device and have kids (or know kids) who use these devices such as an iPhone or iPad this post may be of interest to you.

THE TRUTH ABOUT IN-APP PURCHASES

A quick browse of the Apple App Store presents us with hundreds of so-called “free” apps and games for download but many allow in-app purchases.  Commonly these apps/games are referred to as Pay2Play games.  Essentially this means if you want more features or to unlock features you have to pay for it.

What about the In-App Purchases?   An in-app purchase is any purchase you can make using real money (from your bank account or credit card).  These purchase links are commonly found within the app menu or even hidden within other areas of the game.  Once the user touches the button or link a purchase is made allowing full access or more access to the game or app you have downloaded to your device.   Often times touching on one of these links inside the game allows the removal of ads (supposing the game or app was free).   Sometimes the in-app purchase will allow the user to purchase coins or the unlocking of various features of the game or app faster than in “free” mode.

FAKE MONEY OR REAL?

One big complaint I have found with In-App Purchases is that they can be hidden within the free content.  Sometimes a “free” game will use coins or fake money within the game but real money can be used to “buy” or purchase more fake money.   This is where it can be tricky to see the difference and it’s by design of course.   For example, you may find your child (or yourself) playing a game and see areas to level up or unlock a character or feature of the game which looks to be part of the free game.  But it’s not!  All it takes is one accidental touch on the button link and you have made a purchase of $1.99, $5, $50 or more!   Depending on the age of your kids they could have difficulty knowing when a real money purchase is being made or if pretend/fake money is being used as part of the game or app.  As a parent I have even done this myself and thankfully In-App Purchases was disabled.

 

 

DISABLE IN-APP PURCHASES – 4 EASY STEPS TO AVOID THE ACCIDENTAL PURCHASE

This how you can disable in-app purchases for your portable iOS device if you haven’t already.

 

  1. Touch SETTINGS on your iPhone or iPad.

  2. Touch GENERAL.

  3. Scroll down to RESTRICTIONS.   You will need to type your pin number to enter the restrictions menu (or you will be prompted to enter a pin if you haven’t accessed it before.)

  4. Once inside RESTRICTIONS scroll down to In-App Purchases.  Make sure the “switch” to the right is switched to off (not showing green).

That’s all there is to it!  You should now be able to touch anywhere within a game or app containing In-App Purchasing options and will not accidentally pay for something you are not intending to.  (Note: Should you accidently touched one these purchasing links a pop-up note about in-app purchases being disabled will be displayed)

3. Pro Homosexual Marriage –  The left supports homosexual marriage

4. Will advocate and fight for illegal immigration – The left is outraged when one seeks to keep America safe by upholding the law supporting legal immigration rather than illegal immigration

6. Will choose to lie in order to protect like minded candidates and government officials rather than doing the right thing and seeking the truth

7 Important Scriptural Reminders for this Resurrection Sunday (and all time)

1. Israel is God’s chosen people

Psalm 135:4 – For the LORD has chosen Jacob for Himself, Israel for His special treasure.

 

2.  Many gods, but no other God besides God.  –  Psalm 135:5b  – “Our Lord is above all gods.” 

1 John 5:20 – We know that the Son of God has come and has given us an understanding, that we may know Him who is true; and we are in Him who is true, in His Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God and eternal life.

 

3. All people have sinned against God (we have broken God’s Law the Ten Commandments for God is holy and perfect) –  Psalm 130:3 –  “If You, LORD, should mark iniquities, O Lord, who could stand?”

 

4. There is Redemption and Forgiveness of sin – (We have broken God’s law but Jesus paid our fine)  – Psalm 130:4,7 – “But there is forgiveness with You, That You may be feared….hope in the LORD; For with the LORD there is mercy, And with Him is abundant redemption.  ” 

Romans 5:8 – God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

 

5. Jesus conquered death (the second death in Hell).  Jesus forgives sin.  Jesus Christ rose from the dead as promised (the Resurrection)  – 

1 Timothy 3:16  – God was manifested in the flesh, Justified in the Spirit, Seen by angels, Preached among the Gentiles, Believed on in the world, Received up in glory.

 

6. Jesus is Who He said He was.  Colossians 1:15-17  –  He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation.  For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Him and for Him.  And He is before all things, and in Him all things consist.

 

7. Jesus can be trusted because the Resurrection is real

1 Corinthians 15:3-8  –  For I [the Apostle Paul] delivered to you first of all that which I also received: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, and that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures, and that He was seen by Cephas [Peter], then by the twelve [disciples].  After that He was seen by over five hundred brethren at once… After that He was seen by James, then by all the apostles.  Then last of all He was seen by me also, as by one born out of due time.

4 Big Ramifications of the United Airlines Chicago to Louisville Flight Incident

1.  Increase in prices – In general, I think United Airlines will pass their legal costs on to the customer and we will see ticket prices raised for future flights

2. Distrust will grow –  a new climate of distrust among future passengers will increase toward all airlines’ treatment of passengers but specifically aimed at United Airlines

3.  Policy changes – United will make changes and/or clarify their contract with the customer

4.  More Lawsuits – Lawsuits (frivolous or not) will become even more exceptable especially if you have cell phone video

4 Major Characteristics or Requirements of a Financially Wealthy Person

1. Expert in their field

The financially successful and wealthy person is good at what they do. This person knows their business and subject matter 

2. Hard Working

Many hours invested and spent working including travel time

3. Face to Face Time 

A great deal of time is spent with other people.  Human interaction is mandatory including public speaking at events and doing webinars.  Skills also include moderate to heavy phone use. The financially wealthy person probably has little to no fear of using a telephone or computer.

 4. Energy, Enthusiasm, Excitement 

What I call the three E's to Excellence.  These are essential at speaking engagements and for overall business success.  After all, my wife has proven to me that success usually follows anyone who is full of enthusiasm and energy about what they do. Of course, getting others excited about it helps too.
