Nothing a simple update won't fix but it is rather disappointing.

How about in app purchasing via ms points. The new game in the wp7 marketplace called beards vs beaks has this feature. I know in app purchasing in this manner just lines microsofts pockets but im sure an arrangement can be made.

Is it just me or is everyone turning a blind eye to the inherent risk of allowing in App purchases?

I would see this to serve the benefit of users for many reasons...
