Do not buy any games from Outfit 7 (Talking Tom etc)

Every time you buy the full version to get rid of adverts, and it “upgrades” the software (automatically), it reinstates adverts, particularly for other apps, like their kittens or birds or whatever. The trouble with this is that you then have your toddler trying to download and install the next animal (that does the same things, basically), and as a result, you end up with a screaming frustrated toddler and you have to sit there and keep hitting ‘cancel’ and you have to turn off in-app purchases which makes it come up with password requests all the time… especially when they hit the ‘extra’ features like farts, etc.

DO NOT BUY. EVER. And do not waste your money paying for the “ad-free” version… it is NEVER ad-free.

THAT is why he got money... because violence and beating someone draws a crowd. He didn't *actually* earn it.

You might have heard of some of them, alongside their contributions to modern life: ...
