Default Anyone else tired of in-app purchases?

Am I the only one who is annoyed by in-app purchases? I now check to see if apps have them, and then avoid them. I just want to pay for a game and play it without having to pay more! I don't mind if it's several dollars, rather than the old everything-is-99-cents days. I just want to play!

Am I alone in this annoyance?

You're certainly not alone, most people hate them. You'll find that most paid apps won't have too essential IAPs, it's th free apps that do. Nobody really likes IAPs but I think there is a lot of money to be had out of it, so don't expect it to go away.

If there is more content and levels, I say make a whole other game for me to download. Don't taunt me with in-app purchases. I hate 'em! Hate 'em, I say!

No more levels and big content are excusable, but they are usually in free updates anyway. IAPs only annoy me when it is to get an extra gun or something like that.

The fact that a lot of users expect more levels and content for free is one of the reasons theres iap in almost every game now. In my opinion more content and levels would be a valid reason for iap, more so than getting coins or purchasing an overpowered weapon/armor.

One of the main reasons why I lost my interest in Gameloft games. Honestly, many kids can just hack those IAPs if they want to cheat on those games anyway. Sigh. I miss the old-school way of having fun. Yes we can still play and enjoy without those IAPs but no one can deny that the IAP system has muddied the waters of this generation in iOS gaming.
