Well we will see about that. What kind of compensation is it if the compensation has absolutely no value to the person?
Also I did not use bull **** until the third person I was escalated to said the same thing and completely refused a refund. He did not offer any iTunes credits or anything at this point, it is not until I got angry and use "bull ****" that he did finally offer something. And how can you say they don't owe me anything? I guess you enjoy being ripped off. Oh and sorry if my emails are not highly sophisticated and perfect english, I am quickly, angrily typing a response at night, it's not like I planned to post this somewhere, I was just dealing with a customer service rep. Wow what a good brainwashed customer you are, buy buy buy, don't ask questions or care if a company rips off thousands, probably millions of people. Also no, not everyone gets credit to iTunes, I personally know of people who were refunded the charge, furthermore how does that make it right? That just means they are pulling this crap for everyone...

Warning for all of you, keep the language to PG13. Even though they are "*" out does not mean you can use them. The rules of the board states to use PG13 because we do have younger members. Anymore will get an infraction.

Wow you do good! I bought an app from the app store and it did not work as described!
I notified apple and it tells you what to do if you have a problem with and app, contact the developer of the app! I did so and told him it would know work for me! His reply was it should! I replied several times and never got another reply from him!
You make a purchase through Apple Itunes and they get their percentage on the cost of the app and that is the end of Apples concern!
App developers do not have to make good on their app and there is no recourse!
Really sucks, but then again Apple does suck!

That's a very jerk move from Apple!Asking for help is different from being stupid. Fanboys can rot in @#$%!

And the developer should be ashamed. He should care about his own products and want them to work, if you don't want to make it, then why even start? I understand bug fixing can be a pain but really if its that big then you really need to get cracking. Not something you just pass off until your email is flooded.

My 2 cents...Over the years I have learned when dealing with these things you have to be very blunt and upfront, I have tried being the very nice, apathetic customer and it will never get you anywhere
And, yes - upon the word mentioned of jailbreak, you had said too much and communcation broke down. Maybe trying to open those lines up again will get you what you need. If your language is more legal and professional than offensive and disrespectful, customers tend to get something - which is better than nothing at all.
Legally speaking, if you did sue - you bear the burden of proving that Apple did anything wrong. If their T&C is ironclad enough - you'll end up wasting time and money. But, really... a lawsuit over $5? I'd say, in the end, accept the loss and don't do business with Apple in the future.

Gotta love **********
I guess that word is illegal. It starts with an I and ends with a S.

It is blocked for a reason. Talk about cracked apps/warez is not allowed because of forum rules. Neither are the apps or repos that enable them.

What a major fail. Wow

Has anyone even Gone through the iTunes User Agreement?
All 74 Pages of it?
Seriously? I think Apple put crap in their IUA just so no-one can be bothered to read the whole damn thing.
I could be Agreeing to this:
By Clicking Agree, Apple hereby takes possession of your entire life; including, by not limited to; your assets, liquid assets, all your black sweaters and blue jeans, your family and your sweet 1972 Gran Torino

I have read it all at one point. But now I just skim the new stuff every once in a while. You would be surprised at some of the stuff in there. Or any TOS for anything.

WOW! Get a lawyer sew Apple... you'd get billions

What would happen if a virus happened to come out that automatically hits agree before you see the screen. Could be iTunes, could be anything, how can a company prove someone actually agreed to it anyway. If they are going to force a 74 page contract which every one of their millions of customers must agree to shouldn't it be more than a mouse click? These terms of sale/service are nonsense, who in their right mind thinks there is nothing wrong here...
