FTC Goes After Amazon for kids In-App Purchases Issues – Is Google Next?

In-App Purchase

The issue with unauthorized in-app purchases goes back years. We first heard complaints from parents back in 2010 when little ones were filling their barrels with Smurfberries. Four years later, Apple had made changes to their in-app policies, and updated the App Store with more noticeable warnings, but the company was still required to sign a decree with the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) promising compensation of $32.5 million to qualified recipients, as well as making a few more changes that would ensure consumer’s express consent.

PadGadget’s Flashback Friday: Gargoyle Ruins

Gargoyle Ruins 3

The quirky game development company that first launched Tower of Fortune and later Devil Shard is back with a slightly different decade of retro gaming. While the first two titles focused on the monochrome screen style of mid 1980s mobile gaming, Gargoyle Ruins features colorful characters, a platform design, and graphics that will take you back to playing games on those mini tabletop arcade cabinets.

Gargoyle Ruins is a side-scrolling platform game where players must rescue fair maidens from the greedy clutches of gargoyles. It is the prequel to Game Stew’s first title, Tower of Fortune and features 8-bit art.

PadGadget’s Sound Stage: Griffin and Algoriddim Collaborate on Pro Quality DJ Accessory

DJ Connect 1

One of the most important aspects of being a good deejay is the ability to cue up the next song of a playlist so that it blends seamlessly with the current one. A good record spinner won’t miss a beat so that dancers won’t miss a step. One problem with mobile deejaying is that iPhones and iPads only have one output connector, so you can’t play music over your speaker system while simultaneously listening to the next song in your headphones without some kind of splitter.

That’s where DJ Connect comes in. There are plenty of splitters on the market, but this one has an external volume control and dual stereo outputs so deejays have more control and functionality over the music they play for the masses.

Apple Still Treating Apple TV as a Hobby and it Shows

Roku vs Apple TV 2014

Lately, my friends and family have been expressing interest in adding a set-top box to their lives. I have been a proponent of the cable cutting devices for many years now and recently it seems that consumer interest has finally begun to catch up to the technology, especially since Amazon launched its branded Fire TV a few months ago.

Today, a report has come out that shows Apple TV losing steam among consumers, even as interest in set-top boxes rises. With these low numbers, it appears that Apple still considers the streaming media player to be just a hobby.

SEGA Bring Sonic Jump Fever to iPad as Free to Play Game

Sonic Jump Fever 05

SEGA is on a roll right now. The company has been blasting the App Store with huge price drops on many of its Sonic titles over the past few months. The popular monster-collecting gambling game Dragon Coins hit iOS in May. A few months ago, SEGA launched Super Monkey Ball Bounce in Canada (still not available in the U.S.). Today, Sonic will make an appearance in another jumping game with Sonic Jump Fever, available in the App Store now.

Sonic Jump Fever is a lot like the original platform jumper, Sonic Jump. However, in this game, players compete in score-attack gameplay and compete against friends for top ranking.

Apple Supposedly Breaks Ties With Samsung for A-Series Chip Making
