Kanye West Goes Off on In-App Purchases in Children's Games: 'Give the Parents a Break'

Apparently North West has already turned into quite the online shopper.

Kanye West went on a short tweeting spree Friday evening to condemn appmakers who include “in-app purchases on kids games!!!” The rapper, 38, included a glimpse into his life at home with wife Kim Kardashian West, writing that when they allow daughter North, 2, to play with their iPad, “every 5 minutes there’s a new purchase.”

Luckily for West – and any other frustrated parents in need of a break – you can easily install a parental block on in-app purchases, because it’s unlikely that appmakers will ever completely take out the highly lucrative feature. Kim’s own app, Kim Kardashian: Hollywood, earned millions of dollars in just the first few days of its release, largely due to in-app purchases.

Kanye and Kim, 34, arrived in San Francisco with tennis superstar Serena Williams on Friday night ahead of West’s Saturday afternoon performance at a Democratic National Committee fundraiser. President Barack Obama is expected to also make an appearance.
