Acorn 6 AppStore In-App purchase doesn't let me share with my son


#1

Why creating it as a Family shared application on the AppStore if the in-app purchase stops me from sharing it with my family?

Very disappointed as I would not have bought the upgrade if I had known in advance I couldn’t share it within my family.


#2

We weren’t aware that the IAP wouldn’t be shared across family accounts. Sorry for the confusion.


#3

Is there any specific reason why you guys adopted the In-App purchase which negates the family sharing?

So people could download and try it for free, which is what we do for the direct version as well. A lot of people won’t download an app if it isn’t on the App Store, and then they won’t be willing to shell out $30 just to see if it’s what they want. With the free trial + IAP, we can cover both those cases.

Honestly, we thought Family sharing would have covered the IAP as well. I’m surprised it just isn’t automatically done.

I’ll play around with it…maybe I was doing it wrong…
