IMO In-App-Purchases

Yesterday i found out that one of my friends bought the starter pack thing for $2.99 over 300 times! He said he didn't realize it worked the first 299 times! Anyone else heard that before?

Com2us is probably happy. If I were him I'd contact apple and ask for a refund.

That means your friend is a huge idiot, or he's lying.

I thought you couldn't repurchase an in-app purchase except if it was like in-game gold.

Whoa ! I did not know that you could re-puchase in-app purchases. I am one of those who dislike and mostly avoid any app with in-app purchases, but Puzzle Quest 1&2 has the in-app purchase, and it tells me that it is already purchased, and I can't go back and re-purchase... perhaps with items, you can continuously re-purchase these...

It's repurchaseable because it's an item that can only be used once.

I love when people actually believe shit like this on the internet. Did your friend offer you $50 to do this ?
