FTC, thank you! Just in the past week, we found $2,787 over the past 2 months in unauthorized charges charged by my autistic child in exactly the same way as mentioned. I would also like to suggest that Apple somehow very clearly identifies to the parents when the devices are purchased that in-app purchases are available on free games and run as high as $99.95 or more, perhaps even as strong as a warning. Parents are simply not aware of all these nuances, especially when the device is solely used by the child.
