(Washington, DC)  --  There's good news for parents whose kids bought Apple mobile apps without their permission.  

Under terms of a settlement announced today, Apple is setting aside more than $32 million to refund consumers for unauthorized app purchases.  The Federal Trade Commission says it had logged tens of thousands of complaints from parents over the unauthorized purchases of apps. 
Apple must also change its billing practices to ensure it gets consent from consumers before charging for items sold in mobile apps.
